Hello ongaiweig, thank you for the warm review, we are having a bit of a spruce up to lighten and brighten for the summer. The water in the Hotel is quite safe, we drink a load of it. Hope to see you back soon.

No balconies. Yes, a keycard is required to operate the elevator. Awful hotel, probably the worst I have ever stayed in in London. Steer Clear.
