“A Double = Sofabed apparently!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2011

Was really unhappy to find that the room advertised as a studio double isn't a double but a sofa bed and a pop up bed..... Not impressed.

The room was small and in need of re-decorating.

Bathroom was nice and clean with a good shower though.

Thank you for your review.

I am sorry to read that you were disappointed with your room layout; our room types do vary and we would have been glad to show you other studios if your discomfort was made known to us during your stay.

Once again, I apologise that we were unable to make you feel more at home and comfortable, but I do hope that you will consider staying with us in the future.

I stayed here for a week. The area is not so good but its close to financial area of London and to a walking distance to a lot of historical places.

The main negative points are pull out sofa and bed sheets.

Rooms are very small, not convenient for long stay.
Staff is very helpful
24 hrs reception
free internet (wired and wireless)

Steps to tube and in quiet area of the financial district. Walking distance to the historical cathedral district and its shops and restaurents. Hotel served it's purpose: was moderately priced for London, decent enough location and was clean. The pull out sofa though odd for a hotel turned out to be not bad on the comfort level. If you are looking for a practical place with no frills this will fit the bill. It's billed as long term accomodation so don't expect a hotel experience (ex no housekeeping for a short stay)
