Big room, noisy air con, close to metro
The hotel lobby made for an impressive first impression, but the receptionist's attempts to upsell the room with their GBP30 upgrade meant the check-in process took longer than we'd have liked (wi-fi alone was GBP10 per day). The room itself was quite spacious and seemed clean enough, however the air-conditioner was very loud, even on the lowest fan setting. Made earplugs a neccessity if you wished to sleep with it on. TV subtitles wouldn't work either, so needed to crank it up if you wanted to hear it over the A/C. There was no kettle in the room when we arrived, and the first attempt to call reception for one yielded no result. Had to ask again the following morning before one was delivered to the room. Bathroom was clean, and fairly spacious, although the shower/bath was quite small (as seems to be the norm for most hotels I stayed at). The lack of ceiling lights in the room was another annoyance, leaving lamp-light and the window as the only means of illuminating the main room. The room did have a small bar fridge though, which was nice. Overall, room was OK, but probably wouldn't stay here again.
