Good location for travel around London and local services. However, watch out for security issues in the hotel. My room (34) had a door lock that was temperamental. I found the room fully open after returning from a day out. Nothing was missing, but ...

I like the location of this hotel very much. The staff is usually very friendly. Some things have changed since the Pandemic so I am allowing for this period of transition. There is no Porter, the room service is discontinued, the rooms are cleaned every three days. I had issues with requesting my room be cleaned and having to ask twice. I would definitely stay there again despite the adjustment period post-Covid.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Reception staff seemed quite apathetic. When we enquired about Bugis Street, in which we were looking forward to eating, we were advised that the menu was available in the other restaurant but the menu was in fact very limited. We had to ask restaurant staff to re clean our table as it wasn’t cleaned properly the first time. It took more than thirty minutes for our noodle and rice dishes to be served although the restaurant wasn’t very busy. We booked a club room for lounge access as my husband has been a guest in the hotel many times when on business trips and enjoyed the food, drinks and service there. We weren’t informed that the lounge is indeed closed due to Covid. This is understandable but guests should be informed in case they want to make alternative arrangements. All in all we were both a bit disappointed with our experience this time and we were there for my husband’s birthday.
