Food quality sub standard, breakfast was cold. Constant door alarm noise from neighbouring property, avoid outside room over the bridge

5/5 Excellent

I thought the location to attractions was excellent. The hotel had a bus stop in front of the hotel as well as a subway station next door. The breakfast was super excellent as well as the staff. The room was super clean and the bed was comfortable.

4/5 Good

Loved the location of the property and the elegance of the property. I did not like the noise of the location, but to have something so centrally located and close to the tube station, the noise is probably unavoidable. I also liked the club level, but the cost of this hotel is on the top end of what I would ever pay for a hotel room
