Great little hotel
I stayed here with my daughter for her birthday. The room was very clean and modern with a small balcony. We stayed in room 36, it had a single bed and a double bed. The bathroom was clean with a good shower. The staff were helpful and polite. We found that there were many places to eat in walking distance as well as a Sainsburys. The transport links were very close too.

The Melita
Lovely hotel. Very welcoming. Our room was very good condition but a bit cramped (tight to move around in). Not unusual for London though. Could do with those little cards which hang on the room door to say do not disturb though. Felt a bit pressured to leave the room in the morning after a few knocks on the door from housekeeping.

Ikke kjøp frokost
Greie rom , god seng. Duskoppheng var slakt så du måtte holde dusjhode når du dusjet. Ingen heis og smal gang så kun håndbagasjen . Vi hadde kjøpt frokost . Denne var minimal og de krevde ekstra betalt for juice, fikk kun kaffe og vann. Frokost tallerken var i beste fall en barneporsjon. Men bra beliggenhet i forhold til undergrunn og Victoria stasjon

Absolute Gem of a Hotel
Great hotel, within walking distance of many fine eateries, bars and pubs. It was lovely and quiet and the beds were probably the most comfortable I've experienced in a hotel. The staff were all extremely friendly and the breakfast was filling! I will definitely be using this as base camp for any future London trips.
