                            Very good location, friendly staff

                            Bottled water on wash table is charged at 4pounds, but it is not in mini bar price list. We thought it's free. Room is small.

                            Clean room, big comfortable bed .location is excellent

                            No tea coffee making facilities in room ,wash basin in main room for personal careetc. Our room was right above night club very noise (we moved room at half eleven at night) so ask when booking if you are above night club/bar

                            The staff were amazing - always had big smiles on there faces and couldn't do enough for you. The restaurant (Spice Market) was exceptional - dined there 3 times in 3 days - highly recommend the sangria - yum!

                            The bar area's very pleasant. The hotel upgraded me to a Cool Corner room, free of charge (however, that could have been because I couldn't check in until 4pm - 1 hour after the designated time). I also like the design and style of the hotel and the location.

                            Although some of the staff were outstanding, a number were quite rude and abrupt. When I couldn't check into my room until 4pm (1 hour after the designated time), I was told that my bags could not be sent up to my room "because they were too busy" by reception staff. The hotel opened in Feb, and it still felt like there were a number of teething problems. This is a 5 star hotel, but there were a number of times that the service from some of the staff was not 5 star in quality (with the exception of a number of experienced staff, who made up for the lack of professionalism of some of their peers).

                            The noise at night that filters into the rooms (even on the 4th floor!) is something I'd have preferred to do without. They also don't reserve X amount of seats at Spice Market for hotel guests, which is frustrating.

                            We went to the O2 to see Peter Kay and we lunched at Le Gavroche. We did all the touristy things and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in London.

                            As I said above, the public area is small; everything is very over priced and I am not mean by any standards. The hotel is unusual and novel. I have been to W in New York and think it better as it has much larger public areas and seems more in keeping with NY as a city.

                            Cleanliness of the room - it was not great at all

                            Rooms are cleverly designed to make maximum use of space. They are contemporary and stylish and feel spacious

                            The location makes it great for getting around during the day but is very noisy in the early hours of Saturday and Sunday morning when the clubs close. We were on the top floor and were woken at 3am both mornings.

                            The Location was perfect.

                            Mostly i liked it, but the rooms are too modern and the price is too high. Their is no view in a wonderful type room.

                            They always ask to show your card while entring the hotel

                            Didn't care for the interior design of the bedroom. We stayed in a "fabulous" room and there is a sink located in the center of the bedroom. -I prefer a bit of privacy when I'm shaving and brushing my teeth.

                            Loved the room and the best pillows ever

                            It was only the second day that the hotel had been open but our breakfast experience was poor.

                            The staff were very couteous. A very comforatable bed. Free Wifi in the lounge.

                            The room layout was strange - a basin in the room as well as the bathroom, but no mirrors in the bathroom. Insufficient sockets for computers/phones etc. Not ideal for business. Too much ambient light from outside and no blackout curtain.

                            The staff were fantastic and the glitzy decor was really nice. The bliss toiletries were lovely and the beds super comfy.

                            Had to move room 3 times until we were in one where everything was clean and as it should be and this was on the opening night! There wasn't anywhere to sit and eat room service dinner other than on the bed and there was no bathtub in the room. Also the view, even in the spectacular room which said it had a great view - was rubbish, just of a building opposite, certainly not rooftop soho as suggested.
