The hotel is close to the underground and has plenty of local shops and takeaways. The room was clean and spacious with everything you need for a comfy stay. The fridge in the room is very handy. I've stayed here alot over the last few months and will definately be staying again.

It is a lovely hotel. Our first room had a broken toilet - but we were moved/upgraded to a nice room. So all good. Just a shame no room service - but that is life in Covid.
