It is a very interesting hotel using hi-tech concepts. The design and colours give a modern and jolly ambience. The room is not big but the bed is really big and super comfortable. The toilet is spacious, with a small sink though. The shampoo/bath gel is divided into night and day with the day one more refreshing, very good idea. Everything is like brand new and clean. The air conditioner works very well too. Since it is not a traditional hotel, please do not expect a kettle or a mini bar full of drinks and snacks. However, there is a Marks & Spencer supermarket right across the street and quite a number of cafes nearby.
The hotel situates at the quiet side of a busy neighbourhood. The closest underground station is about 7 minutes' walk and there are some good restaurants in that area. I considered it a good location.
To be honest, we were not greeted by anybody at the reception (it was not manned at the time we arrived). We simply found out by ourselves how to check in on the computer provided and got our room card keys printed. Thus, we had no idea if the staff was nice.
I will give it another booking when I next come to London.
