We bought this blind on Lastminute.com as a 'secret hotel' for £88/night twin room no breakfast.
I was a bit nervous about buying an unknown hotel and phoned the Lastminute number for "more information". There was no more information, just the outsourced agent reading out what I could read myself on the web site. Fortunately, it paid off.
It looks like an old gentleman's club, with a nice bar / TV room and an expensive-looking restaurant (we didn't eat there).
The first night was in the smallest room in the hotel, 116. The ceiling plastering showed it was probably a quarter of the original house room. There was a step down from the bath into the room
which caused us to stumble during the night. So next day we asked to be moved and they moved us to room 516 on the top floor, the attic level. The management was very responsive, and the concierge pleasant and helpful.
516 had more space between bed and wall and the step was on the way in, not within the room. However the wall was thin - we could overhear next door's middle of the night phone call. And the double lock had been removed from the door. There was no view from the high window. There is no air conditioning. We don't mind sleeping with the window open, but if it was really hot in London that might be a problem.
We did not have breakfast there (£18 each for continental, £25 for British) but around the corner in Garfunkel's in Gloucester arcade, £9 each. Neither did we pay the hotel for wifi when it was free in Garfunkel's.
The room was well appointed, except for a tiny cupboard for the clothes, the bed was comfortable, the hotel was a 10 min walk to the Albert Hall, and the price was right for peak London summer / Olympic rates so we were happy.
