My wife and I chose this hotel as it was central to the Sadlers Wells and Lyceum Theaters, where we enjoyed three wonderful nights of entertainment, as well as Oxford Street and the shops during the day. What a great choice it was, the Hotel was modern (only open 6 months), stylish, comfortable, had a great atmosphere, was full of life and the staff could not do enough to look after you. We arrived by taxi and instantly the door staff knew our name. You only had to pause for a moment in the lobby before someone would look to help, which they did to arrange a table in the tavern one evening after returning from a show, or a taxi at the door on other occasions. The staff were young and a great mix of European nationalities and we loved exchanging experiences of our own and their travels around Europe. The Punch Room serves a wonderful choices of punches with a definite alcoholic kick, the Tavern bar great craic. The cellar club caused us no issues, nor did we hear the usual sounds of sirens on the streets of London. In our room on the fourth floor, which was plenty big enough for us, the bed was Queen size, comfortable and the wet room in the bathroom fabulous and we took full advantage of it. We only had breakfast in our room on the last morning, it was excellent, on time and presented beautifully (should have done it the other two days). We were not enamored with the photograph in our room of a young woman with toilet rolls wrapped around her head (an extract from the book of photographs on the table in the lobby) whose eyes followed you everywhere. There could have been a better choice of wall decoration, perhaps abstract art would match the modern decor. The high decibel level of the conversations among with the mass of busy busy young people and business men made us folk "up" from the country (Somerset) feel part of a young vibrant community which was great. At 70 we were probably the oldest residents in the hotel. There were a few niggles at times, too small to mention specifically, but they were enthusiastically fixed in minutes. We loved the hotel, but felt that £50 for a scented candle in a glass jar, from the mini bar, just a little to extravagant for our pocket. We will return another day when we visit London again!!!
