I'd rather be charged more and be able to squeeze between the bed and the wall without breathing in! Unbelievably tiny rooms. London needs to think again. It's almost as if it doesn't matter if any customers come back.
We stayed here on over half term as a treat - as I arrived there was someone complaining at the desk about the fact she had been told there was a swimming pool / gym etc but not been told it was extra - exactly the same happened to us and we had gone out and bought swimming costumes ! Our room was meant to be superior but the third bed meant we couldn't get the wardrobe door open to use the hair dryer so my daughter went out with wet hair. The chamber maid who was very polite struggled with the heating as it was freezing so asked for maintenance to come - he never appeared. Luckily we all like to sleep in cold rooms but imagine if we hadn't ... all in all I wouldn't go back - good location though. I did complain at the desk and the girl said she would tell her line manger but 4 days later and not heard a peep!
The rooms in this hotel are quite small, however, that does not make a difference if you are planning to be out and about most of the time. It is quite clean and the staff is very helpful. The hotel does not provide you with a wash cloth, so be prepared. Grab a map of the walking tours, the Tube is an alley away. Pick up an Oyster card there as that is the easiest way to get around London, as opposed to buying a ticket each ride.
I enjoyed it here, it's pleasant and we had some very nice cocktails and the rooms are very nice and staff were very helpful and lovely! I loved the breakfast! There was plenty of choice and the breakfast staff would always welcome you with a smile. Which is a great way to start off my morning! So thankyou!
Great location, great staff, very clean and I would totally recommend!Like many European hotels don't expect a lot of space. I personally don't mind the tight quarters but having to do a sideways scoot around the toilet paper dispenser to get to the toilet was a little tighter than normal.
