The hotel was great but we booked an executive room as it stated the room had a city view, but we were on the 5th floor so the view was of the houses opposite. Not what we expected!! When we stayed before we had an amazing view right down to the river and the London Eye so we were rather disappointed this time. However we still enjoyed our stay.
