It was a good stay, don’t get me wrong. A nice, albeit expensive room for the size. The staff were friendly and the location of the hotel was excellent- less than two blocks from the central and Piccadilly lines. But the doors of the hotel do not mask noise AT ALL. If it were just the door to the hallway, that wouldn’t be terrible as people don’t generally congregate in the hall, and I can even get over the fact that I could hear every door close as if it were right next door. But my room had a connecting door to the room next door and I could hear every word as if it were in my room. Add to that they were redoing some of the rooms and moving furniture down the hallway, and the plumbing that made loud gurgling noises every time the rooms above me used the water. I really wanted to love this hotel and make it my go-to for my visit to London. But I am going to keep looking. Quiet is important to me.
