This hotel is not cheap, a room with river view cost 195 pounds a night, but the view is awesome, as I have shown here in the photo. My room is clean and the bedding is comfortable. The in-room espresso machine is such a nice touch! Staff are friendly and helpful, on one occasion, one of the concierge even ran up the street to get me a taxicab. Its proximity to Covent Garden is a big plus. I would pick this hotel over any stuffy hotels in town.
