As other reviews have said, the hotel is in a very nice residential area of London. It's not very close to the areas frequented by tourists, but it's a short underground ride away from the centre and is well worth it for the peace and security you get.
The hotel seems to be well run. I actually didn't encounter anyone who worked here during my stay as I arrived after 6 PM, when the reception closes, so I had to phone the owner to be given the entrance code for the door. Although this was no hassle, it means that other than phoning the owner's mobile number, you don't really have anyone to contact after 6 PM for general information. I would have liked to have been given the code for the WIFI, for instance, but I didn't want to phone the owner's personal number to make such a small request.
My room was fairly spacious and the bed linen/furniture were clean enough, but it did have a rather dusty/old feeling to it. This should be familiar to anyone who visits London frequently as I don't think I've ever stayed in a mid-budget priced hotel in London which wasn't old and dusty. For that reason you can't really expect to be in a new, modern building for the price you pay here and all you can ask is that everything has been cleaned properly (which it was).
Overall I would recommend this for anyone looking for a cheap hotel in London as, though it won't blow you away, it's perfectly acceptable and comfortable.
