Solo trip to London”

This hotel is in a very good location, close to 3 mainline train stations and very close to buses into the city and other areas too. It’s on a street overlooking a grassed/park area which is nice enough to sit it. My only concern was I knew it was a shared bathroom Altho the shower was next to my room the toilet was up a flight of 18 stairs. Not good for someone with mobility and health issues. The single room was adequate nice comfy bed, pillows and kettle for making hot drinks (there’s a sink in the room for water), plus tea, coffee and powdered milk to go with them.
