Hotels are a joke in London, overpriced and outdated. Apartments are the way to go and the Minc properties are very good. Cuba street is modern, fully equipped kitchen our room also had a little balcony. Glorious for smoking a stog in your jocks when its 5 degrees. Location is excellent, close walk across the bridge to the tube station. However there is not much to do in the area come late of night as it is a business district. Be prepared to be taking the last train back from Piccadilly etc.
