The hotel was`easy to find as it is located next to St Paul's. We were met by concierge, who were polite and helpful. Check-in was easy and we were upgraded to an 'executive' room as it was our first stay at that hotel.
The entrance, bar and lounge area were in a large glass atrium. It looked impressive but generally gave the communal areas a soulless feel. It was even stranger at night when the bar was a bizarre mix of suited, business conference types and leisure travelers.
Our room was a ground floor one that looked out on to the stylish atrium. Unfortunately that meant that the occupants of the atrium could also look back at us if we had the lights on and the curtains open.......or the builders could.
Builders? yes builders. They are still building the hotel. Not hordes of men in day-glow jackets, but enough to drill holes, bang things with hammers and saw up bits of wood , almost continuously between the hours of 8am and 6pm.
Our double room had one bedside table, one chair and one bathrobe, luckily for us the one bed it had was a double. Other niggles would be that housekeeping wasn't done until 4pm and tea/coffee supplies weren't correctly replenished. We could also hear the lift rumbling, when were were 2 bedrooms away from it!
In summary, we paid £100 pn, room only ( booked with last minute), there is no way we would want to pay more. It may be 5 star hotel but feels like a 5 star conference center, with little thought going into the lay out of rooms and facilities. Even I had to direct a 'lost guest' that wandering the corridor as I was leaving our room.
I'm sure there are better deals out there.
