An excellent boutique hotel in a central location, excellent value for money. Rooms compact however have every amenity you would need. Another great hotel in the YTL chain (better known for Malaysian hotels and hospitality) so glad we can now experience this brand in UK. Would definitely stay again when looking for a Central London hotel.
