As has been said you get what you pay for, that said I would stay again without a second thought.
The room was comfortable and clean and situated on the ground floor, a reasonable and acceptable traffic noise experienced, it is the centre of London after all.
The staff on reception were friendly and organise cabs to get around the city, it is worth remembering that if you book a private hire the price is set before travel and if you are stuck in traffic the price will still be the same unlike a black cab where the meter continues to spin and rise.
The breakfast is continental but plenty of toast jams, cereal, tea and coffee to keep you going.
One comment and not a complaint but an observation was that all the staff that I came across were not of this country but very nice all the same.
On the day we left a well spoken gentleman was doing his nut, although politely complaining about the traffic noise and who he was going to complain to was nobody business I think at some point he mentioned the Queen but I may have misheard that.
And insisted on triple glazing before returning or he would be contacting trade descriptions.
I did tell reception that I slept well enough and I didn't know the queen either
You can leave your bags at the Hotel for the princely sum of £2.50 per bag
