This hotel is aesthetically very nice. Clean and modern. Missing most of the grundge that characterizes so many London hotels, even expensive ones. I liked the location and found it to be very convenient. The decor and services were good, including a 'round the clock coffee machine in the lobby. There is a small refridgerator and cook top, as well as a sink, in the kitchen area of the room. The room is good sized for london standards and the bathroom is very nicely appointed. The a/c works reasonably but not brilliantly. The big problem is that the mattress on the bed is the most uncomfortable I've slept on at a hotel. It's not really a spring mattress, it's more like a fouton and my back would actually touch the board below. All they need to do is put a spring mattress on the bed frame and they'd be fine. But, as it stands, it's extremely uncomfortable.
There is a laundry facility on the premises, for pay, that is extremely convenient. More hotels need to do that. Finally, loved the fact that the room's floors were not carpeted. A combination of laminate wood and tile make the room feel much cleaner than the typical dirty carpet of most hotels.
I highly recommend saving money and eating breakfast at the little food place near the tube station. It's got an odd name, that I cannot currently remember but it's right next to the Holborn tube and I got a full English breakfast for 5 pounds. The service was also very friendly there.
