You'll feel young again and like you're back in university, because unless you are very lucky this will be the smallest room you have ever been in. It is a college dorm room- not a 4 star experience by ANY stretch of the imagination.
One must turn sideways to walk between the bed and the wall. The hotel itself is a rabbit warren of endless hallways. We saw a few people taking pics of their tiny rooms for the sheer novelty value. Perhaps they are submitting them to the Guinness Book of Records people?
Positive reviews of this hotel deny all logic. They must have been from the very few who had normal sized rooms. Stairs leading to these postage stamp sized rooms also present a big problem for hauling luggage. My Partner fell down a flight of said stairs leading to our room, vowing never to return.
On the positive side- we did see Pippa Middleton shopping at the Waitrose across the street, so the location is good. (However I do believe our room was likely the size of Pippa's loo.)
Be forewarned! There are much better choices in the area. There was a Crowne Plaza and a Holiday Inn near by.
