8/10 Very good

2 night stay
It was in a heat wave and the rooms had no air conditioning which made it an uncomfortable stay in that regard. Room was clean and tidy. Wardrobe is not full height. Reception and restaurant areas were lovely, the room looked a bit more tired.

Good accommodations, except on a hot day
Generally adequate room, except for lack of air conditioning. Fan was provided but didn't prevent room from being uncomfortably warm on a warm, but not extremely hot, day. Service was good, and restaurant good as well. Location near British Museum.

Very pleased especially the staff who were very helpful. The bathroom, particularly the shower, could do with being updated. Otherwise very happy

4/10 Fair

Not impressed
The hotel rooms looked completely different on the website. In person, it was more of a motel feel. The room was hot, cramped, and loud. The bedding was subpar and the bathroom situation was tiny and awkward. The staff, however, was extremely friendly.
