My husband and I ended our six week European vacation with six nights at the Rathbone. We found the hotel to be very charming. The location was perfect. We could walk to many restaurants and the underground stop was less than 5 minutes away. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We also found the continental breakfast delicious and very... More

I stayed here for business and had a pleasant stay. The hotel is in a good location and is comfortable enough. The great thing about this hotel is the staff. All those I met were very friendly, polite and professional. The room itself (an executive room, 313) was small but fine. The double bed was actually two singles together. The... More

Staying at the Rathbone Hotel for the third time was a real pleasure. After browsing the reservation sites on the internet I made the reservation directly with the hotel and therefore I had free WiFi and continental breakfast. My room was a wonderful twin-bedded room on the second floor, not facing the street. It was very quiet, I neither heard... More

Stayed here recently and was impressed overall. The room was small but comfortable and the the breakfast was nice. Staff were very friendly. It is a family-run type hotel and not one to choose if you prefer the big chains but I thought it was a lovely place to stay. By far the biggest benefit of staying here was the... More

Great welcome, very polite staff throughout stay clean room and corridors. Great spot to stay for a theatre visit straight walk 5 minutes to soho sq. And on to Cambridge circus an excellent variety of restuarants and bars. Great stay and great location would stay again. Decor in rooms a little dated but did not put us off.

The score of "average" is only given as the suite Room 503 to which we had upgraded, was very tired in both decor and furnishing. It has also been a long time in a quality hotel that I have needed to struggle with the wet shower curtain in a very narrow bath whilst showering. The staff are very welcoming and... More

Excellent return to the Rathbone for one night. Unfortunately, on arrival we were informed by the receptionist that we had booked for the following night. Luckily we had printed the confirmation email, her explanation was that someone with same name had booked for the following night (??!!). We also had a bit of an issue with noise which we had...

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. I am glad that your stay had mostly positive feedback. Regarding the breakfast, we do not have English breakfast on a hot buffet, because it would lose the quality that we persevere to maintain. Instead we have a freshly cooked breakfast to order, for an extra £4. You can also book it during... More

Stayed at the Rathbone twice this summer for a quick business trip. Like the quaint, slightly oriental, 1930's decoration of the reception rooms, bar... Not a fan of the more standard room look and feel. But the beds are very confortable and clean... The location at the X of Rathbone and Charotte street is great for restaurants, drinls ... and...

This hotel is very unique. The service is excellent, the rooms are nice and clean, the staff is very friendly. The location is very good and there are lots of choices around for restaurants. Breakfast is great in their lovely restaurant. I would definitely go back to the Rathbone hotel.
