Good location but very run down. The sofa bed still had the old sheets on it when we arrived. The lifts were pretty ordinary - half the time they didn't stop at your floor. Bathrooms need some work - very tired.

Hotel is looking a bit old. Location close to underground station, restaurants and shops. Staff don't seem overly friendly but it's okay for a short stay.

Great location

Pros: Location, location, location
Cons: Ensure rooms are of 4 star quality
Location: 2 min walk to Gloucester Road station on Piccadilly Line. Plenty of casual and formal eateries within 2 minute walk and museums 10 minute walk
Hotel is in a great location. Close to Underground, eateries, museums. Interactions with staff were pleasant and efficient. However hotel rooms are quite tired. Bed in particular was in need of upgrade. We spent all night stopping ourselves rolling into the middle
