Excellent for position. The room was tiny but really clean and the bed was one of the more confortable bed I've ever sleped in a hotel. The bathroom definetly too small and without space for stuff for 2 people. Personnel really really polite and kind. The furnitures, the moquettes and the corridors were a little bit too old and the doors really complicated if you have luggage but they're starting the renewing of the entire hotel...I'll be back for sure!

I would recommend this hotel as it is in a great location. We had an issue with the air conditioning, but staff attended to our request promptly. Although the issue wasn't resolved, we were offered complimentary breakfast for our inconvenience.

I stayed in a single room which was tiny. It was just for one night and I was very tired so I did not ask to be moved. The shower needs to be renewed; it looked a little scruffy. The situation is very convenient.

This hotel is one of the best located for a single tourist. The underground and all other facilities are close to make for a pleasant stay in London. I would come back any time. Overall service and price are right.

I had a very small single room, but it was verxy lovely though. Great area, near underground, nice hotel and good offer! Just take a twin or double room instead of single, because it´s pretty, but too small! Very nice staff! Would go there any time again.

It is a very nice hotel, but the room I had was tiny and was above one of the bars, so I was kept awake by the noise. The breakfast selection is good. It is literally one minute from Gloucester Road tube station.
