Our experience here wasn't as bad as some of the other reviewers. However, it wasn't perfect either. Our main disappointment was how small our room was. Even given the fact that many London hotel rooms are small (I stay in London frequently), this one was very small. There was very little room to manoeuvre around the bed which made the whole experience uncomfortable. The whole hotel just felt cramped & you felt like you needed to go outside to breath.
The decor of the hotel is very nice, but it does certainly need some redecorating in places. For instance, there were a lot of water marks on our ceiling which looked awful.
Breakfast was acceptable & the waitresses were very polite & friendly. The reception staff were OK if not a little officious. I would recommend a bit more warmth towards their guests.
All in all, an OK stay. Would I stay here again? Yes, but only if I found an amazingly low price deal.
