This is a lovely hotel, ideally located for easy access to the subway and several shopping areas. The staff were friendly but English was truly limited at the desk and restaurant. Asking for a tea pot for the room took 4 attempts but they smiled each time they brought various items. Getting over jet lag was tricky as they knocked on the door to clean the room rather relentlessly. The beds were solid, solid as a rock and the mini bar turns off when you leave so don't put anything in it which you want to keep fresh.
**that said, it is better than any UK hotel I have stayed in, the shower was excellent, the sheets were soft, the toiletries good and the little box of useful toiletry accessories were very handy**
