Simple, Quiet Hotel, yet close to the Action
This hotel is in a quiet, safe, and residential area, with other hotels nearby. It's a few blocks away from a major underground (subway) line, along with several public buses that drop you right in front of it. You can get to popular London attractions within 30 minutes. It's also walking distance to a mini market, popular eateries, cafes restaurants (e.g. Pret, Starbucks).
The staff are very friendly. There is no elevator but the ladies were able to bring our bags up to the room for us. The rooms are comfortable and simple, no pizzaz. Just good for sleeping and going about your business. No AC so be sure you have a working fan in the room. Also they don't have washcloths so be sure to bring your own (no luck trying to buy one in London). Make sure to bring a converter for US plugs. there's a fridge, but no microwave; the lovely staff would warm up my son's meals in a microwave in their downstairs kitchen.
