Everything about the room was 'acceptably adequate', without any aspect being plush, or luxurious. Price of the room was reasonable for being in central London, and only ten minutes walk away from main stations and underground made it hugely user friendly. The first night (of three) we were granted a free three-course meal in Jacques (next door), but you could... More

Good location, but otherwise just an okay hotel. The breakfast was minimal. You'll be better of having breakfast at Costa or getting something at Tesco Express (both are located short walk from the hotel towards Russell Square station). The shop right next to the hotel is expensive, wouldn't recommend unless you're in a hurry and absolutely need something. The wifi... More

I just wrote a review on my travel blog which I'll share here. I cared about three things when it came to accommodation in London: location, cost (cheap), and cleanliness. During my browsing I came across the Tavistock Hotel and it was most fitting for my budget and fit my location desire.I knew from the costs and reviews that I... More

There is a bit of shabby chic to be found here at the Tavistock. The Art Deco is well preserved, and the staff serving breakfast garrulous and friendly. The room is cute, clean, and small; a place to sleep, not hang out. No wi-fi in the room, only in the lobby. The water pressure of the shower and size of... More

Stayed for one night in twin room on 6th floor. The hotel itself is OK but really needs a complete revamp. Public areas not very clean but room was fine. Breakfast was average and very busy. This is not a hotel I would stay in for more than one night however, location is excellent. Not all staff speak English. Front... More

This is my 4th(I think) stay at the Tavistock. It was ok but not as good as all previous stays. My room was on the 6th floor, all clean, a twin room, one bed rolled when you sat on it, the other didn't, the window didn't close, the TV remote didn't work so the volume was full all the time... More

Stayed just one night here after attending a presentation in Pall Mall. Rooms are a little 'compact' but if in London you only usually need it to sleep in. Tiny tv , but again just to catch up on the news etc it was ok. No shampoo or shower gel , but knew this in advance, lots of the little... More

Many good things in this hotel when compared to other hotels in the same price range: English breakfast is included, free Wifi in the hotel lobby, generally good and friendly service. Our room was a little bit worn out, paint missing here and there but it was otherwise clean. Beds are not the best but ok. Only on electrical outlet... More

Just back from a couple of days in London. Stayed at this Hotel and found all the Staff in the Hotel extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms although basic were homely and very clean. The breakfast was tremendous with a choice of cereals, different fresh juices and a superb array of cooked items. The Staff in the Restaurant were very obliging... More
