We booked the only hours before we arrived, we had an urgent 4 nights trip to London when almost everything was full in London. I've called the hotel before to make sure we could check-in after midnight, because we had a very late flight, the receptionist was nice and helpful and said that if we have any problems to get there at night we should call him to ask for a cab.
We arrived after 2:00am and the guy was still there, it's not such nice area (but not a bad one). The fact that this small hotel has lights on to street all night and someone there all the time was very helpful.
The rooms in the bottom floor (more like a basement) had some damp smell and we didn't want to stay in one of them, the only room available in the ground floor was "Luxury" which is a standard room in any other hotel with a decent size bed. They charged an extra 5GBP a night for this room, but it was better than the standard room they showed us, which was very small with 140cm wide bed.
They have an area in the entrance of the hotel where there are tables and chairs, and open all the time. There is coffee, tea, milk, bread, butter and honey free to use whenever you want. there is also microwave, toaster and a giant fridge that anyone can use to store food in, so you can buy yourself a take-away dinner or lunch and sit there to eat and even reheat the leftovers if you care to do so.
There is also a free WIFI which was very helpful.
All and all it's an OK place if you plan to be out all day shopping and sight-seeing, and just want a place to come back to sleep and shower.
