I must admit that this was THE BEST experience I ever had in a Hotel so far (this being my field of work too). The receptionist was super kind and helpful, she gave us the kind of vibes where you feel welcome, special and excited to be there. The room was perfectly clean. The breakfast area perfectly organized. The hotel is so easy to find, easy to get with the public transport, perfect location, close to everything. I feel very happy I chose you guys! Thank you 🧡

We got a room on the ground floor, just situated right next to the street, although it did compromise a bit on privacy. The size of the rooms was unexpectedly generous, and I suspect we were assigned an accessible room. While the spaciousness was appreciated, a regular room on an upper level would have suited our preferences more. The staff were delightful and genuinely helpful throughout our stay. The location, not too shabby either, was in close proximity to the renowned Tate Modern. Good for short stay!
