It is an ok hotel - needs double glazing as noisy though - and felt that bit tired. Good clean room though ; shower needs updating but does work well - just intermittent temperature. WIFI excellent Breakfast good but need to be more GF friendly though they try more than most. A GF area - with a toaster ; GF sausages ; when paying £16 for breakfast , it needs to be better. No fruit yogurt or fresh fruit ( their is fruit salad) All round - given nearly £200/night ; 6 or 7 out of 10

Clean & convenient location. There's nothing tatty about this place. Room was good, bog standard really but spacious for the price & area, many other hotels charge the same for a tatty cell. The downfalls were the noisy air-con vent outside out window, but quietened down by the time we were back in our room at midnight. The bathroom is pretty badly designed & the loo is close to the wall with a looroll holder sticking into my arm so couldn't get comfortable enough to 'toilet' nicely. The breakfast was fairly good. It's completely self-service, get your own tea & coffee, & bizarly ask for a tea spoon if you need one. There was a short wait and once seated had a clean table. It's OK for what you pay but next time we'll probably go over the road for a waiter service breakfast at the greasy spoon.. where we've ate at before & very much enjoyed! We'll still definitely be back here though if we get a room at the same price.

We had a very nice stay. The staff were friendly & helpful. The breakfast was consistently good each morning. The food & drinks in the hotel bar was reasonably priced & tasted good. The location is good. We were very close to the British museum & access to the tube was only about a block away. The only negative would be that the pillows were hard, which wasn’t good for me (I have neck issues). The only other negative is that the walls are a little thin. We could hear the people in the room next to us.

A nearby trash compactor was very loudly squeaking and grinding at inconvenient hours of the day and night. All the money for renovating has been spent on the entry way because the hallway to get to our room was trashed, ripped off wallpaper, holes in doors, stained carpet, totally gross. There was a "we care about wasting water" hanging thing about reusing the towels and not requiring fresh towels every day but there wasn't a low-flow head on the shower so clearly they don't actually care about water usage. The walls were really thin so you could totally hear the neighbour's conversations and showers. The bar area off of the reception area was actually a bit creepy, dirty, and badly lit. The breakfast is overpriced and they kept running out of food and taking their time replacing it which is not great for how much it costs and you don't have time to wait around. We had to ask repeatedly and wait for over an hour to get someone to bring us TP when we ran out. The hotel is in a great location though so bring ear plugs, ignore the creepy hallway and bar, and eat breakfast across the street at the little Italian cafe in the park. We wouldn't stay here again.
