Great location, clean and tidy, everything you could need! If you are looking for a quiet place to stay within walking distance to main streets and public transport this hotel is great.

Very convenient location, very close to oxford street. Attentive staff. Had our anniversary and we were brought a small cake as a treat and had our bed covered in rose petals. Very nice and attentive gesture. Free water available at the bar.
