My wife and I stayed for the weekend and our stay was great. The staff were very helpful and polite and the breakfast was hearty and tasty. The view of the London skyline was superb and we would thoroughly recommend this ideally situated central hotel.

We stay here for 1 night to go and see 39 Steps at the theatre. The hotel is in an excellent central location, but was still fairly quite. Rooms not large, but very well equipped. All staff very helpful. We took advantage of the restaurant's early evening theatre dinner menu, which was very good value. All in all, an above... More

The room was clean, large (for London), well maintained and user friendly. The elevators were readily available and filled with friendly people. The restaurant had quality breakfast options. Staff was helpful. Concierge was pleasant, but not always effective. The neighborhood is the clincher - the best location for so many things. Hotel was above a 4 rating, but not quite... More
