The hotel needs a face lift. Its also in the wrong part of town i.e you dont feel safe to walk out. The hotel takes advantage of this by having you book taxis and transport via their concierge and the rates are not competitive to what you can arrange locally. The staff were polite but you sometimes have to ask more than once to make sure you get what you want. The swimming pool looks great on the website but is nothing more than a plunge pool albeit a good view off the top floor. Check out the hotels around Melrose arch there is more to walk out to in the evenings. Good restaurants in melrose arch area include The Quest, momo,s and JB,s for beers and more casual bar food.
