Poor Noise Insulation
Unfortunately, the hotel room has a single pane window and being located on the main road in central London, every bit of traffic was heard loudly all night long. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel for a good night’s rest.

8/10 Very good

This property did not have air conditioning which made for a somewhat uncomfortable stay on a very hot weekend. The rooms that face the street are VERY noisy with traffic and siren noises.
