It was bright, very spacious, and most importantly, very clean. The area is very good as well, with plenty of restaurants, and also museums and parks. Would recommend to anyone as a great starting point for exploration. Close to South Kensington tube. We wouldn't have enjoyed London as much had we stayed in a hotel. Thanks for everything, we’ll be back !
