    Very good

    We did not want to leave, would recommend. There is a nice lobby area to relax in. We had sofa beds and we all slept well. Employees were LOYAL and helpful. Also, it was within a 10 minute walk from natural history museum. We really enjoyed to have evening drinks at Cromwell Tavern, based nearby.

    Having the subway next door was the main reason for taking this hotel. Direct line to Heathrow and Covent Garden area.

    It wasn't the most luxurious room in the world but we weren't looking for that either. The bathroom could be better. The room's refrigerator was ringing and we unplugged it for the duration of the stay.

    The noise of the subway from the 12th floor room.

    The bed was very comfortable. Quiet on the floors even though the hall was under construction.

    The cleanliness of the bathroom left a lot to be desired. The bathroom was too small. The windows dirty

    The bed.

    bathroom could be in better condition, more specifically the bathtub. It was narrow and faucet was missing some trims. It also had a curtain instead of a screen and apart from being unhygienic it was uncomfortable.

    Perfect location, just a few meters from Gloucester Road subway station. There are many restaurants in the vicinity offering a wide range of options for lunch and dinner.

    The rooms are not completely soundproofed and you can hear what is going on in the corridors at night.

    The view and a good breakfast.

    Poor light in the room.

    Very good facilities, recently remodeled.

    The cleaning staff is rude. One morning they came into the room after I had told them repeatedly that we were inside changing, and they came in anyway, seeing my half-naked partner.

    The Hotel is a hotel of the Holyday chain that has all the style of that chain. It is very well located, has commerce, supermarkets, and restaurants next door. In a nutshell, it's all very well.
