Reviewed 25 September 2017

The hotel is conveniently located within a couple of minutes from Edgware Road station, with metro lines deserving a big part of the city, including St. Pancras international train station. It is also within walking distance from Hyde Park and Oxford street.

We got the double room, which was tiny but comfortable. However, the room had a tiny window facing another room, so there was no natural light coming in.
In general, I'd say it's suitable for staying a couple of days; but not more as there is not much space to keep your stuff. If you're planning to stay in the room for a while during the day, I'd recommend booking a larger room.

The wifi was sometimes unstable, but reconnecting would always work.
(By the way, to use the wifi you need to have the TV on)

The staff was friendly and helpful.

One issue I had with the hotel is the fact that the elevator is located inside Costa Coffee, on the ground floor; which means that, in theory, not only the guests have access to the hotel facilities. Adding extra security (e.g., using the elevator only if you have a room key) would be much appreciated.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with natural light.

We stayed here last week and just used it as a crash pad as we were at a gig in town and the staff seemed pleasant.
The room was quite small (though did have a window that you could edge open slightly which we liked) but served its purpose as we just needed a bed for the night. Our bedroom and bathroom were both clean. There was plenty of complimentary toiletries and tea/coffee in room.
I am not sue the breakfast on offer at the hotel as we didn’t need it but there is a Costa Coffee next to reception.

We went to London for weekend to the attend the BST Concert at Hyde park which is a short walk from hotel. We arrived very early and the staff at the hotel looked after our bags so we could do some sight seeing. We booked in went to our room which was small but had everything it needed and was spotlessly clean. The shower and bathroom looked very new. Alex at reception made our stay so worth it, he was vault of knowledge about anything from how to buy a cheap jacket rather than an expensive one to giving advice on what tube to get to where, he had a great sense of humour what a nice young gentleman, so well mannered. The wifi work when upu put on your TV which was no trouble for us at all. Totally would go back to this hotel as its so near everything.

I walked into this hotel late on a Saturday night in need of a room in an emergency last minute situation. The man on reception was extremely helpful and went above and beyond his call of duty to ensure I got a room and had everything I needed. This excellent customer care was also exhibited by a second member of staff the following morning who was also extremely kind and helpful. The room itself was small but it was clean and had everything I needed. The room was quiet despite being at the front of a busy road. The hotel is close to supermarkets, tube station and plenty of bus stops. I highly recommend this hotel for the wonderful staff and value for money in London City Centre.
