We accidentally saw this place as we were walking down Charlotte Street and enquires about vacancy for mid July. We stayed for 3 nights.Foyer is stunning, clean and service is excellent. We stayed in a high level room. Size was more than adequate, rooms were clean and bathroom just right with good sized bath. The eateries around this hotel are... More

Had a decent stay at this hotel. Check-in staff friendly. Room nice size with good facilities and fairly quiet. Breakfast was ok and staff in dining room were polite and attentive. Not on a main road so sleep quality was good. Great location and goodge st tube just a few minutes walk.

We decided on the spur of the moment to have a weekend break in London and picked the Rathbone Hotel based upon hotel search sites, the hotel's website and its location. WHAT A FIND!!! A 'boutique' hotel on Rathbone Street in the Fitzrovia area of London. The hotel is large enough to have all the essential services, but not too... More

The Rathbone Hotel is within 5 minute walk of the Goodge Underground station. I was misdirected by Google Maps originally so keep this in mind. The location is close to the Goodge and Tottenham Court Road underground stations, as well as buses. There are lots of pubs and restaurants nearby. I ran to Regent Park every morning. Overall, it was... More

We spent four enjoyable nights at the Rathbone, and found the comfort and amenities just right. Just off the vibrant Charlotte Street, where we found many dining options, the hotel was clean and the large bed was inviting after a day of touring. We had requested a quiet room, and they put us to the back, facing a very ugly... More

I stayed here for one night on business because my usual hotel was full. Not particularly stylish or contemporary as hotels go but the reception service were first class. The 10% discount voucher for local eating places was welcome and used particularly because the hotel is well situated. The rooms were spacious by London standards. Recommended if you need a... More

Just returned from three day and stayed Rathbone hotel. Good location. Friendly staff . Breakfast overpriced and if not prebooked will be charged extra. Do not know why as the continental buffet breakfast is already available . A bit of noise from local bar but does not go on too late.

Good location, friendly staff but the noise at night was awful, do not go for a room in the front of this hotel as the bars seem to be emptying bottles into bins until about 2am and the binmen come round very early in the morning, we came home exhausted.

Dear Guest We are sorry to hear that your stay was disrupted by external noise from a nearby bar and the refuse collection of empty bottles. We are striving to reach agreement with the Council to change the timing of their collection of the bottles. I am unable to trace whether you requested a room change to a quieter side... More

Stayed for a night after a business event, was not bad, but I would have probably picked a better venue if I have had to pay for it. We have asked for an umbrella to borrow, got a broken one, but still made us pay £20 deposit! (you could probably get it for £3 in most of the high street... More
