Forum Room Restaurant
This restaurant is bright, airy and spacious which can take large group of people. It is modern looking with two buffets and a small bar, where you can relax while having morning beverages, Continental or full English breakfast. It provides lunches for me

Everything fine except the Internet

Would recommend Tue, Dec 1, 2015
This hotel has a fantastic location, just steps away from the Gloucester Road tube station and dining. Quick easy access to London. The room was small by US standards, but perfectly in line with a UK hotel. Front desk staff and housekeeping were all top notch. My only complaint was the internet service. It was great at night, but dreadful during the day. I'd read other reviews complaining about slow internet but thought that surely they must have upgraded it by now - they haven't!!!! If you're a casual tourist, then by all means consider staying here. If you're a business traveler and fast reliable internet access is a must-have, you'd do best to look elsewhere. I paid 50 GBP extra for 5 days worth of what was supposed to be high speed and was disappointed. I'm saying yes as a recommendation only because everything else there went so well.

A nice American touch

Would recommend Sun, Jan 25, 2015
I am an American who stayed here on business. The hotel was nice, with more American sized rooms than the typical British miniatures. The truly appreciated touch was that I had to spend Thanksgiving here away from family, and they actually offered a full Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings, which I took advantage of and truly appreciated.

Money saver

There is a decent laundrette a short walk away, Bobo's Bubbles, 154 Cromwell Road. They will do it for you until a certain hour, or you can do it yourself until late.

The hotel is nice and comfortable. The atmosphere is also welcoming, and friendly. The free Wifi was a plus for me. Nice pub, and delicious breakfast. The location, and access to transportation makes this hotel my favorite.

Expensive, but good location

Would recommend Wed, Jul 9, 2014
The hotel is within 5 minutes walk of Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsburys, perfect for buying 20kg of much-missed food to take back to Japan the next day. But the room is about the same size as a Japanese business hotel (ie tiny), yet 5 times the price. That's London, far more expensive than Tokyo.

Shopping hint

Perfect access to supermarkets

Would not recommend Wed, Feb 26, 2014
for the price, a good deal if you are just looking for a generic rooml. They need to update and put back small fridges in the rooms - a disappointment.

The location is perfect being a block from the Piccadilly line and a number of restaurants. The room was comfortable and always very clean. The staff was helpful.

Take the Piccadilly line from Heathrow. It's very easy and inexpensive. It's also safe and efficient.
