    Very good 8.0
    Great facilities, room needs a little work
    Stayed here for a few nights, enjoyed the pool and the location was convenient. There was also a sauna, steam room, hot tub, and gym. I thoroughly enjoyed all except the gym which, me being lazy, I didn't check out. The sports bar there is also very nice and we had dinner on our final night with the £25 room credit I got (although that only covered half the bill). Only thing I will say, lifts were a bit funny and the room I stayed in definitely needs work. Very few sockets, no AC in the room itself, bathroom felt very old-fashioned. Overall I'd say the average 3* rating is justified, but for the price I can't complain

    Very good 8.0
    Slow service
    I have never known staff so slow! Better room than the last 3 times i have stayed, so i will be requesting to be on the same side as reception whenever i stay in future. Much nicer furniture and the room was less like a prison cell. Simply cannot cope with how slow the staff are to do anything. I timed, 17 minutes it took them to serve 3 drinks! No wonder there is always a queue....

    Poor 2.0
    Not a great hotel as aircon wouldn't work but Soukalla on reception was very hospitable.
    Benjamin, gb1 night trip
    Very good 8.0
    A chiper good alternative to stay in London Centre
    It's a quite good 3 star hotel considering the average of the hotels in London. Good things: position, area, nice breakfast, fridge with beers during the night. Free water every day and room well fixed every day. They also have a spa I never went there no cannot say how it is. Bad things: no air conditioner ( but there was a big ventilator that worked well ) , the faucet of the bathroom is a bit weird as hot and cold water are places at the opposite borders... I recommend this hotel , but pls take at least a double room even if you're alone because the single is a bit too small in my opinion.

    Enjoyable stay
    Good sized room and facilities. Have stayed before so knew what to expect although have had smaller rooms before. Didn’t get chance to use the sports facilities this time.
