My room was spacious considering it was a single and there was plenty of room to move around as well as tea/coffee and a decent shower. The Saturday night was noisy in the bar, even though I was on the third floor, I was woken up at 2.30am by loud music. The staff were friendly and the hotel is exceptionally convenient for Lancaster Gate and Queensway tubes, Kensington Gardens and even walkable from central London (if you fancy a walk)
