Unfortunately the room was too hot and the air conditioning did not adequately cool the room for the 3 nights in the hotel.

Enjoyed our stay in London. Hotel was very centrally located & easy to use public transport - bus & trains. Modern hotel with very friendly staff.

Would consider staying again
Overall experience during our stay at the hotel was good. However, I have to say that although the service at the reception was excellent, the sevice at the executive lounge could be improved. For example when I asked the waitress if she could take away the plate I was finished with while having our breakfast there, the waitress said “I was gonna” with such grimace on her face. Another area of improvement is cleaness of the ice bucket in the hotel room and dust underneath the bed. Considering the room does not have sufficient ventilation, the room had too much dust. However, it is definately a place I would consider staying again as it had an amazing view, above average facility, and majority of staffs were kind.

Lovely hotel. Service needs tweaking.
We had a lovely stay, reception was helpful,view was great,room modern, quite spacious and comfortable. Just let down by sofabed not working,so had to have a big clumsy temporary bed in the living area. Also cups, glasses and utensils not cleaned or replaced after use. Not what we'd expect of a five star hotel. Walking distance to most of the capital's tourist attractions.
