This is a reasonably priced hotel in a good location and the rooms are clean and comfortable.
However, they seems to be poorly insulated against noise. Before getting settled, be sure to check -carefully- that you can't hear the grind of the elevator motor or some strange, and loud, sound that happens at regular intervals in the hallway.
I stayed in room 103 and could hear "going down" and "doors closing" all night long. When the elevator wasn't interrupting my sleep, sounds coming from the toilet in the hallway were.
The staff was very professional and probably would have moved me to another room, but once you're unpacked and under the covers for the night, who wants to bother?
That said, this is a solid 3 circle hotel. Being able to wake up and go for a run in Hyde park or easily find something to eat in the neighborhood deserves extra points.
