The hotel is smart and stylish, superbly situated, and the room was very comfortable in all respects, and likeably quirky with a good view even on the "city" side (although the plumbing was very noisy in 823, and it wasn't clear where the noise was coming from, possibly the room above?). Regarding service, my booking confirmation via included bathrobes; the hotel said not, but still provided them within a few minutes of a request. However I had to go to the desk to ask because the phone was not working, and that was not fixed the next day as promised. We didn't use the rerstaurant or the downstairs bars (the restaurant looked a bit dark, the Lyaness bar looked good but we didn't get a chance to visit. Late on Friday evening, Valentine's Day, we braved the 12th Knot bar. Brilliant views on both sides; glasses of good and not too expensive wines, good value snacks, but music far too loud, insistent and intrusive for our 70-year old ears - shame!

Very good 8.0
It has the potential to be good.
We stayed here for the night and the location is good. Very central and easy to get around London from here. Room was a decent size however I would say it felt unclean. Walls were marked, carpets unclean looking. Looked out window straight into office block. Part of the reason myself and my boyfriend booked the hotel was for the rooftop bar. We arrived, and left straight away. Staff came across very rude and obnoxious. Was not very welcoming place to be. Would be fine if you were dressed in a skimpy dress and heels in a massive group of girls I’m sure they would be more than welcoming and helpful. The hotel itself physically is nice.
