I stayed for 1 night for business. I picked the hotel because it was close to Westminster and it cost around the £100 mark. Check-in was efficient and friendly.
My room on the 4th floor was clean, had what I expected to find and everything worked as it should. It had a shower (but not a bath), the water was hot and the pressure was reasonable.
Reasonable selection of chanels on the TV (no Sky Sports though). There is WiFi downstairs and in the bedrooms for a small charge. In the lobby there are about half a dozen PCs with chargeable internet access.
I had an evening meal in the small restaurant; service, food and prices were good. Between 6 and 8pm there's a 'happy hour' at the bar and a pint of beer will cost around £2.25 which for a London hotel is incredibly cheap. I had full English breakfast in the morning. Reasonable choice and quality.
The only serious drawback with this hotel, as other reviewers have pointed out, is the traffic noise at night. The hotel is almost opposite a major police station and also on the junction of several busy roads. Load sirens are a regular occurence day and night - great if you're watching a police drama and you want to feel part of the programme but otherwise not good.
The room I was in didn't have aircon (that may be the case for all the rooms) which means if you'll be staying on one of those rare hot days during the English summer, you'll have to decide whether a noisy /hot room is better than a breezy /extremely noisy room! To be honest, the windows seem inadequate for keeping the noise levels to a reasonable level so opening them might not be too much worse.
Would I stay again, maybe but not if I've had a very long day or will be making an early start. I need my sleep!
