Nice place

The place is very near to the tube station, the staff and good and friendly.

The room and place in general including bathrooms are clean up to an acceptable standard but not supper clean as is supposed to be, but ok. The only problem I had with this is paying for towel at £2. I think they should just collect a refundable deposit of £3 and not have the option of charging guests £2 for the same.
