We chose this hotel because of the internet price, TA reviews, and short cab ride to St. Pancras station to catch the Eurostar train to Paris. The weather was chilly/drizzling on June 2nd, and we walked in the afternoon to visit the British Museum about 5 minutes on foot. The hotel room was basic and clean. I did like the... More

I stayed here for two nights on my own whilst travelling on business. Easy to find and received a friendly and caring welcome when I arrived. I asked for a quiet room and the receptionist offered me a number of options which would fulfil that request. Was allocated a lovely big room which included a sofa and a desk. Piping... More

My partner and I stayed in this hotel at the end of August over a weekend (Friday and Saturday). When we arrived the staff were friendly enough and the entry way was pleasant. On entering the room we discovered it was very crammed; no more than a room with a bed, desk, chair, and tiny shower room. Given the prime... More

Booked a double room which, while small, is perfectly adequate for the amount of time I spend in there. It looks to have been recently redecorated and was very clean. The bathroom is miniscule, having only a shower - but again, all clean and functional. My complaints with the room are that there was no air-conditioning. I stayed in June... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights Monday/Tuesday. Have to say shocked at the price for the room per night compared to weekend rates. However I did find London Hotels at this time had hiked their prices up for this time. The hotel was in a great location on Southampton Row walking distance to two tube stations, on major bus...
