i thought everything was great from the self check in to the king size bed/ sofa/ after hours playground! the room was spacious for a hotel in london, the price is great, again for london... the location is great as well. you'll find Tesco around the corner, M&S foods across the street, some nice places to eat, Tate Modern gallery is a walking distance, and finished off with my kind of nightlife... this is my latest favorite hotel in today's london... not too much frills but whole a lotta thrills... i know i sound like a commercial but this place made me happy!
you can certainly feel the concept of being a tourist/citizen while staying there... i personally liked it more because i go to london a lot.. i dont want to scare first timers, but thing is you wont find neither your classic concierge nor a pretentious receptionist... you will find though a friendly staff member, bartender, or another citizen who is happy to help.
you will get some compliments here and there, like a random mat telling how fabulous your shoes are!
i saw older citizens, younger ones, boys, girls, gays, and heteros from all around the world! so dont be intimidated if it seems young or too local...it is simply current...you want to be somewhere that feels like home in london today, dont you? forget about the traditional queen.. you are the queen! (or king?) LOL
everything is super user-friendly, and whats better that having robbie williams greeting you everyday and night on your way to your room - you'll find'em hiding behind british glitters! im coming back this september - already booked!
