The mini-chain’s second London hotel shares the virtues of the first. The service is obliging, the rooms are crisply designed with all mod cons, and there are comforting details: a rubber duck in the impressive bathrooms; free jelly beans; free local calls and internet; kettle and iron provided.
The City of London branch has the better location for tourists, a short walk from the Tower of London, but this one is handier for business. From the suites, a terrace peers over commercial buildings, but the view from the restaurant – of the flamboyantly sculpted frieze on a business institute – is rather pleasing. Prices are decent for the City location, but book well ahead to get the best deals.
