jbtonne Couples - TripAdvisor review

First; the good: the breakfast was alright, the location is good and it’s clean. Now for the bad: THE BED! If you like sleeping on the floor you will love these beds, rock hard with springs coming up in random places. Was told by the staff that all beds in the hotel are the same and the best they could do was give me a duvet to put underneath the top mattress. Didn’t help much. Vacation slightly ruined by lack of sleep and by day 3 walking around like a zombie. Then the bathroom; it’s a plastic box in one corner of the room. Feels like you are in a boat bathroom, and you can hear everything from the outside, including the hallway. Not coming back here again

Lovely Hotel in a Great Location

This hotel is located on Blackfriars, just a very short walk from the Southwark station. We arrived shortly before 10 AM. Because we already had elected the early check in option, our keys were ready for us when we came through the door. Check in was very quick and easy. After a quick and quiet elevator ride, we were in our room. The room was plain but comfortable and well appointed. There was a built-in bench, a chair, a wall-length shelf, a wardrobe, a TV, and (of course) a rather comfortable bed. There was plenty of room for two persons to work around each other. We VERY much appreciated the multi-outlet adapter (4 receptacles and 2 USB) with the very long cord! The bathroom was plenty of room for one person, but there was really no way two could work easily around each other unless one was in the shower or nearly so. The counter space was VERY limited, and there was no other storage space other than the floor, so things could get a bit awkward or tedious switching in and out. The shower was very nice, but the bottled soap and shampoo were hung in the perfect place to bang one's elbow on it, and banging one's elbow typically caused a bottle to fall (perhaps painfully onto one's foot). We removed them. There also was a potentially dangerous step down from the restroom into the main part of the room. We never ate in the restaurant, but the bar was a nice place to wind down with a drink at the end of the day. Elia was fun company. Our largest complaint was with the air conditioning. I have no issue with limiting use in a conservative fashion, but it would turn off at seemingly random times. It could be twelve hours after turning it on, or it could be only two or three hours. We never saw ay pattern, and it was irritating to wake up in the middle of the night, sweating in a stuffy room. When the A/C was on, it was very nice--comfortable and quiet. Everyone we dealt with was very pleasant and helpful. We very much enjoyed our stay, and we would not hesitate to return.

This is is a great location for central London, about a 20 minute walk to Covent Garden. Room was nice, not the biggest but had everything and a nice bed. Bathroom was small and had a shower only. Breakfast was excellent and had everything and all you can eat.

It was generally good. I thought the hotel would be a tiny bit nicer. Had a small vibe of a nice hostel but still mainly had the hotel feeling. The staff was really nice and helpful. Did not get the breakfast. In all was a good hotel and would stay there again.

Dear Bt, Thank you for the review of our hotel! We hope to see you again very soon. Sincerely, Guest Experience
