I expected a lot from this hotel since it was recently renovated and the comments here where good. The entrance of the hotel was good, all new and everything looks nice. Frendly staff and an ambiance as you can expect from HIEX.
The location is ok; a bit far from the center but when you walk out of the hotel you can immediatly enter the underground. With underground maybe 20 - 30 minutes to the hart of london.
The rooms are also good although you can see that furniture is reused. No problem since it has alle been reworked and looks ok. The bath room was somewhat a disapointment. The toilet in my room was a recycled one and when you looked into it it seemed that the previous flush had not worked properly ;)
Also the shower was not good. The room to shower is very small and the soap dispenser is at the same area as where you stand, so you bump into it very frequently. Also the water pressure was way to low and the shower could not be set in a possition. Only one position could be used in all other positions gravity took over.
The breakfast, I know don't expect to much, was also not very good but when I am in for example Belgium or Germany in HIEX the breakfast are always with enough choice. Here it was not good and the warm buffet, please again microwave quality. Not good.
So on average the hotel is ok but consider taking breakfast outside. I gues the toilet will be ok in other rooms but the shower area is an irritation.
I am not sure if I will stay here next time.
