We went to this Hotel as part of a Groupon deal and on that basis it was fine. I would not be happy paying the full price which was £300 more !!!!
I can't say there was anything particulary wrong with the hotel but if you were paying full price you would be paying for the location more than the hotel. It is only 2 mins walk (if that) from Euston Station. The best thing was it was basically in Camden and a 20 min walk the other from The London Eye and the Millenium Bridge and the best ever Cinema the Imax on the South Bank which is the business !
The hotel itself is very modern/contemporary. Due to previous Trip Advisor reviews I phoned up, mentioned Trip Advisor and asked not to have a small room. The one we got was OK and looking at other reviews probably wasn't the smallest but I have to say It wasn't massive. If you are just using it as a base like we did though it was clean, comfy and a lot quieter than I thought it would be (we didn't have a room at the front).The staff were friendly and helpful at reception and the housekeeping lady we saw was friendly.
The "afternoon tea" we had, again as part of the Groupon deal, was ok but compared to friends who have had it at other hotels I was a bit disappointed (ok if you like Salmon or cucumber Sandwiches!). The breakfast we had in Number 12 was good with a good choice both hot and cold.
In short we would stay there again if we had another deal but not if we had to pay full price.
