Firstly I really liked the location of this hotel. It's walking distance to Soho and Covent garden etc and I felt quite safe walking back there at night.
My room was huge, especially for London standards. It had two double beds and a sofa and still had room to spare. Funny how the bathroom was absolutely tiny, but I didn't mind too much as it was just me and the shower was great. Really powerful with a great sliding glass screen so you don't get any water on the floor.
The decor was pretty dated and I have to say there was a bit of a musty smell when I walked in, even though it was a non smoking room. Things like this mean I would definitely not rate it as five star.
Other things I liked included a free newspaper (the independent) left outside my door each morning and all the staff I met were great.
The swimming pool is gorgeous, and towels are provided when you get down there. I thought the water temperature was a bit too warm for serious swimming though.
The breakfast was above average, but ridiculously overpriced - £20, with no option just to have continental.
I stayed here for work but if I could get a good rate I would come back for a weekend break as I liked the leisure facilities, the space and the location.
