Good location and price for London but very basic. Like an earlier review the rooms were extremely hot and the tv didn't work. No hair dryer and only 2 hangers. Didn't expect much in London for £117 however I did expect a working tv set with a back on the remote control.

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times and will do so again; I have been generally satisfied. It delivers exactly what it offers: a comfortable 3-star hotel centrally placed for main railway stations and, in my opinion, good value for money. A minor housekeeping problem was dealt with quickly and efficiently. The room was hot, there was... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Was meant to be bed and breakfast with dunner proved on first night. No dinner was forth coming - apparently not part of our deal anymore despite what paperwork says. However given how average breakfast was I'm not sure that we would have eanted it. Breakfast itself was very average with very limited choice. Only... More

I have been to London a couple of times now and I was in the Tavistock 3 times now. The Tavistock hotel is one of the best places to stay if you are there for business. The location is great - shopping centers and restaurants are in walking distance.With a centrally apt location, this beautifully designed hotel is the answer... More

Firstly, let me say that the location and price is good for London. The beds had springs sticking up out of them and need replacing. The continental breakfast is included and pretty basic with toasted white bread. For a 5 pound upgrade, you can have the full English breakfast (not worth the extra cost). There is free wifi in the... More

Good location but not a hotel I'd visit again. Very basic , rooms were so hot we could barely breathe and this was in October!!. Bathroom was tiny, rubbish shower which soaked the room. Tap on the sink flooded the side every time you turned it on. Lumpy bed and a tiny TV. It was clean though which was about... More

As with the rest of the Imperial group hotels I've stayed in, this hotel is clean, efficient and is located in a great part of London. The downside, again like the rest of the group, is the dated feel of the rooms and the breakfast which are truly awful. Just eat the cereal and avoid the rest. Value for money... More

The hotel is conveniently located close to the British Museum and to the main London train and tube stations. The hotel itself is clean (for British standards) and faces a small park. Nothing fancy, though. Rich breakfast buffet and lots of dining options available in the surroundings. In my opinion, the main downside is that no internet connection is available... More

As a base for a visit to central London,the Tavistock is in a great location,close to the British Museum,the West End, and even the City. The hotel is opposite Tavistock Square and is fairly busy,but in central London,it is hard to find quiet! The hotel is large,uninspiring,efficient,clean and the staff friendly.Our room was on the fifth floor at the side,clean... More
