St Ermin's used to be thought of as rather dowdy but seems to have gone through a major renovation recently. Our room, a deluxe with king-size bed, was certainly immaculate. Not at all to my taste - a designer-ish confection of green walls, purple spotted curtains, red and black zig-zag fabrics etc! - but undeniably done to a very high standard. New furnishings, extremely comfortable bed, splendid bathroom, flat-screen TV, mini-fridge, kettle etc. More or less anything you might want - except free wifi!
Room size was fine, but this was a deluxe - maybe standard rooms are on the small side? No view from the room - they are arranged in a U-shape around a central courtyard, so look into one another. Lobby is spacious and a comfortable spot to meet friends. Price, on a discount deal in February, was very good for such a location.
St Ermin's is very well-placed, with St James's Park tube station a few yards away (and St James's Park itself, for a bit of fresh air). Handy for anyone who has dealings with the British government or bureaucracy in Westminster and Whitehall but also convenient for tourist attractions such as Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. But it's a pretty dead area in the evenings.
