Rooms far too hot
The rooms were the old cells and were small but adequate for a one night stop over.
As with most hotels the rooms were too hot, despite the heating not being on. Breakfast in the morning wasn't great, basically cereals and toast. The location wasn't bad, although 10 minutes from the nearest tube.
I was in a twin room , it was ideal for a few hours sleep after going to a stadium concert.
If i was staying in london for a weekend i would look for somewhere a little bit more comfortable. The location was perfect with everything you need close by , i will put this night down to an experience.
