I stayed for 1 night in a single room, I often stay in London and this is the smallest room I’ve had .I had corporate booking and this seemed to confuse the reception both at check in and out, it took me 25 mins to check in, they insisted I’d pay for the prepaid room and then if not hold my card on file for extras, this didn’t happen. I then had the same issue on departure so a further 15 mins wasted. They then blamed the issue on a system problem that must have deleted some details from the booking. The room was small, the bathroom was very small, the sink was over the toilet, this was a first, you’d have to sit on it sideways. The air con just had a dial with blue and red on it and didn’t feel like it was cooling at all. No bedside lamp, just ceiling lights. The bed actually overlapped the bathroom door too so it wouldn’t close properly without a shove. Breakfast was pretty normal for London, but the staff at breakfast were excellent. The breakfast and bar area are very nice and it’s a nice building. In summary, you can get much nicer hotels in the local area cheaper than this with much more space, so I’d suggest doing that. This one needs work.

Very central hotel close to Gloucester Road underground station. Nice and well maintained building, good breakfast room with a nice buffet breakfast service. The room was very tiny, as the bathroom, but cleaned and well organised. Unfortunately the engines of the air conditioning were just outside the window...but all in all, a good choice for London
