Superb location, quaint single room
Posted Oct 26, 2016
The pluses: unpretentious, comfortable, and friendly; the room was small but tidy and featured vintage prints, furniture, decor. The Continental breakfast included excellent tea, juice, and a bread of choice: simple but sufficient for getting out the door. The staff were extremely friendly and housekeeping excellent. My room was located away from the street (super view of London rooftops) and was separated from the hallway by a double door. I heard no voices or noise from other guests.
Minuses: my room was located near the elevator shaft, which creaked until users were tucked in for the night. (I managed to ignore that, though someone else might not). I also found the bed a mite too soft. Finally, I found the room key situation odd: one leaves the key on a heavy numbered ring with the staff upon leaving the hotel. The little key cupboard didn't seem secure to me. The room did contain a safe, however, if one were worried.
