Good location, lovely, buzzy London feel outside, close to the tube station and plenty of cabs about to hail.
Clean hotel with minimalist decor. Reception service was okay, although I nearly died of thirst in the bar and I was the only customer (perhaps don't order a cocktail).
Mine was a bit of a micro experience, I stayed in a micro bedroom, bed was comfortable and I enjoyed a good sleep. The micro shower room, also dinky was half a step away from the bed, which is great if you like to go from bed to shower without your toes touching the floor. All in all a very cleverly planned, compact room with no space wasted although a little claustrophobic.
As I was staying one night only none of this was of great concern, but I would have been reluctant to stay another night in the same room.
Breakfast was a bit of a slow affair but okay.
The hotel was booked on my behalf and it wasn't a cheap option. Although I wouldn't recommend against staying here I would say definitely have a look at alternatives first.
