I loved the understated elegance of this hotel. The couchette room was perfect for 1 person, beautifully furnished in an art deco style with nods to the hotel's history. I liked the pantry at the end of the corridor, where there were two coffee machines & kettle, plus homemade chocolate brownies, chocolate bars & apples. There was no kettle in the room, but it was no problem to walk along to the pantry in robe & slippers to make tea in the morning. The pantry had just been cleaned & was spotless, although I didn't see anyone else using it. After I returned to the hotel at night, I found that someone had closed the blinds, turned the bed down & left a bottle of water & chocolate, which was a nice touch. With a late checkout at 11am, it was blissful having a relaxed Sunday morning lounging in the comfortable couchette bed. The bathroom was small but tastefully decorated with a large walk-in shower & rainfall shower head. The hotel's toiletries are divine. The hotel staff were really kind and helpful, and looked after my suitcase while I did some shopping in Covent Garden (15 mins on the tube). The only downside was that I did hear noise (trains?) late at night, but put some earplugs in and it was fine. I was also woken by early morning light, so blackout blinds might have been a better option. In any case, I had a wonderful stay and will definitely be using the hotel as a base for future to trips to London.
