Have stayed here many times over the years. Is so central and reasonably priced for such a good situation. Had a very pleasant stay as before. service, especially is excellent. Could not be more polite and helpful. Well placed for restaurants and clubs. Will always stay here when in London as it meets all my expectations for a comfortable stay.

So what is bad about this hotel? Any faults? The answer on both counts is no. This is really a superb hotel ideally located for central London. Hotel reception area is stylish with lovely furnishings. So much nicer than the big chains. On reception the greeting was excellent and made to feel very welcome. I think the receptionist was Dean...

Chose the hotel for a birthday theatre visit with my friend as it was an ideal location. The staff were all friendly and polite, even holding back breakfast for us as we overslept! The room was clean and comfortable, the food was great and would definitely return again.

When you enter the Rathbone, the first thing to strike you is the wonderful lobby. It really is stunning and full of character. The hotel is only a short walk from Tottenham Court Road underground station, so easy access to /from most areas of London.

Was here for one night only. The hotel is in a great location, close to Oxford Street. The lobby is beautiful. I had a room on the 5th floor. The room was clean, but very dated.
