Check in was very positive...everyone friendly and efficient. Offered us tea or lemonade while our reservations were completed. We stayed 5 days and were very pleased.
Room was nice, squeeky clean. Bed was comfortable with high quality linens. Small desk, good sized flat screen TV, very fast internet included in rate.
Location was very good, about a block from the London Museum (free!). And there are some fun pubs a couple of minutes walk. Also, two blocks from a number of electronics stores to get your wires, plugs, adaptors at good rates.
Bathroom was small with a shower over the tub. Several confusing knobs to fill the tub, activate the sprayer, or the shower and temperature were eventually negotiated.
We had a view of an airwell, but the window did open. AC was efficient and fairly quiet but fan on low was present.
Room lighting was confusing to operate, with switches controlling several fixtures. Bathroom lighting was poor, just a two small spotlights in the ceiling. One was above the sink and that made it near impossible for my wife to apply makeup as her face was in shadow.
We had paid for the continental breakfast to be included an it was delightful. Dozens of choices, great ham, pastries, fruit, coffee, tea, toast, smoked salmon, cheeses including a nice brie, etc. Juices were great. You can also order your breakfast prepared or delivered to your room for an extra cost.
We had dinner at their restaurant. Service was excellent, food was good. The bar was fun with a very accomodating bartender.
