    Faded glory but a pleasant stay

    Reception staff and concierges excellent - however not friendly when called from room. Good range of facilities and pleasant lounge area, iron on room, overall gives the impression of a good hotel though a little faded

    Reception staff, while mainly excellent, not friendly when called from room. Bathroom was not very clean on the first day. Rooms are faded and old-fashioned, especially bathroom.

    Very average.

    It was a very reasonably priced hotel especially for London. It is very self-contained, several restaurants and bars, that are open late. It also has a take it to go, snack and breakfast cafe. It is close to the tube.

    The air conditioning is not up to the task, especially when the temperature spikes in the summer. The hotel is dated, old look, old furniture, etc.

    Location to underground. It is five minutes to the station and easy to use. Also, the breakfast is very good. The Chinese Bistro was good too.

    We were pleased with everything. The hotel however, gets quite busy.

    Breakfast buffet was outstanding

    The outward appearance of building--it's much nicer than it appears
