Everything at this hotel comes at a high price and it offers poor value for money. I was on a company paid event and was glad it was not my own money! I'll admit that it is modern and stylish and from my experience service is very good and attentive. But entry level rooms at £250+ are very small and... More

Didn't know what to expect after reading some of the reviews. Had wanted to visit this hotel or it's sister hotel (Sanderson) for some time, then found the perfect excuse, mates birthday! Had trouble booking on line, so phone direct and they honoured the same rate. Check in was a breeze (Need a porter though?) Room was spectacular (Paid the... More

Stayed here with the girls on my hen weekend. Great interiors and cool late night bar. Got upgraded at check-in to rooms with little gardens. Very chic. Don't know that the difference in price is worth it though! Lovely bathrooms with robes and long sinks. Typical London city hotel. All staff quite distant, sad looking door-man and huge queue for...

Great designer/boutique hotel. Good service, only one complaint, rooms are too small. Did like the key they give you for your room. The light bar was pretty fab too.

Booked in with a small, sophisticated hen night celebration for one night. The room was obviously very clean & stylishly laid out but was very expensive for what was provided. The little price list for sewing kits & first aid kits in the wardrobe did seem a little excessive, considering there's at least one chemist on The Strand. The Reception... More

Stayed one night, having spent an evening out in London. The staff are over attentive, I don't mind but can get grating. Check in was fine, rooms are small(ish) but not that bad - it is London The bathrooms are really nice, power shower - modern and clean. I would like a radio or something in the bathroom though. I...

This place is definately worth it if you get a great rate. We were checked in early (by a really obnovious guy - the only negative to our experience) and upgraded to a deluxe - which was a perfect size - wouldn't really want it any smaller. The rooms are all white which i love - expect at night you... More

I paid above what I could afford to treat my boyfriend for his 27th birthday but it was worth every penny. We ate in Asia De Cuba. The food was amazing, the clientele - good looking and glam. I dressed up to the nines in a lovely dress and felt like a supermodel! The staff were all very friendly. The... More

As long as you don't pick up the phone in your room, you'll have a fabulous time at this modern, highly stylized hotel located in Covent Garden. From St. Martins Lane you can easily walk to Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square and Soho and enjoy the hundreds of restaurants and shops along the way. Multiple tube stops and buses surround you...
