After much searching, my friend and I booked and paid for a Standard Double room each, close together for three nights at this Hotel. However, this is not what we were given on arrival. I, a single bed with a very squeaky floor in a single room on the second floor, with my friend the same on the seventh floor.... More

excellent hotel, quiet, clean rooms, free Wi-Fi. It is recommended to ask for a room only at the front of the hotel. Generous staff. A varied breakfast I went there on a recommendation from friendsֿ..

I had the misfortune of staying in Room 12 whilst overnighting in London on business. The room was absolutely horrendous. Firstly, it was the size of a shoebox: it was so small, I had to lay out my case in front of the door just to unpack. Secondly, the room was so incredibly hot as there was no air-conditioning in...

We had a room on the corner with good views to people watch on the street below. The hotel had all we needed. Unfortunately there was a problem with our booking as we booked through an online agent (Amoma) and the booking wasn't in the hotel's system. But I am not sure if it was the hotel's fault or the...

The hotel is so central for "doing" London. I had a room at the side so the noise was less than on the front? The road outside is busy, but that makes it easy to hail a taxi! The room was a good size and the bathroom ( no bath!)/ shower room was clean and functional. In fact the shower... More

Room was basic and clean, bathroom a good size for this type of hotel. Had TV, free wifi, hairdryer, tea and coffee. No aircon though for thoses of you that like your aircon, but there was a fan blowing in my room when I checked -in. There is a lift, which is a bonus as I was on the 5th... More

Bloomsbury is quite a far walk to oxford street but would be suitable for a taxi/bus or tube... The staff were very pleasant and the room is adequate, all the appliances you could need but quite small so I would only recommend for a short stay. Me and my boyfriend stayed for 3 nights and we were found that long... More

Looking at the cost versus the value as a location for museum exploring, access to the tubes and buses, and the incredible breakfast, this would have been an easy 5/5. This is my 7th hotel experience abroad from America. I've seen a range of what the UK and Normandy has to offer from the Waldorf in London on down. I... More

This hotel is reasonably priced and perfectly located for theatre land and Covent Garden which are easily reached on foot. Great transport links to all parts of London. The standard rooms are adequate, clean and functional. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The self serve buffet style breakfast is plentiful and full of choice with full English and/or continental... More

Lovely friendly staff who allowed us an early check in (around 11am). Room tidy and neat but soooo hot - no air conditioning. Quiet room at the back though. A Quiet hotel perfectly located for the West End / Soho / Covent Garden.
