Good 7.8 From 718 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Fun and convenient!
We were really impressed with our room. My 11 yr old loved the bed which was high up. The room was small, but really nicely decorated. Normal level of city noise, such a convenient location for underground and Eurostar. The breakfast was really nice, some fresh fruit would've been nice though. The shower was a bit difficult to get to the correct temperature, but we managed in the end. All in all, we were really happy with our choice!

Pleasant stay
The room was very pleasant to stay in, clean and well appointed. Only gripe being that in the basement room you can hear the tube going past every few minutes which you do get used to.

Good 6.0
It was clean and services were good but the room was very noisy. It must have been just above the underground
