Great central location means we did not need to travel by tube to theatre, shopping, west end, etc all within walking distance. Our room was big enough with standard features. The bed was comfortable and we both slept well. The decor was a bit tired and a lighter colour carpet would have made the room feel bigger and cleaner (dark... More

The hotel is great! Clean, comfortable, the room itself was quiet. I would like to thank Jake (Jacob) for all the help! This people are real professionals! We all loved the location so closed to everything!

Despite being a great central location the hotel is in a really quiet street. Our family room was on the top floor & no lifts due to age of building but bags were carried up for us which was appreciated as 3 flights of steep stairs. Room was clean. Beds comfortable & fan provided (hot during our stay!). En suite... More

I spent 4 nights at the Thanet Hotel in June and it was wonderful. The Hotel is dated but very clean and the employees were great. The English Breakfast was fantastic and tasty. The Thanet was our home away from home. We all loved the location so closed to everything. We walked everywhere from here. My next trip to London... More

We've just had a lovely two night stay at the Thanet hotel. When we arrived the receptionist was very friendly. Although we had booked a double room we received a family room with a double and a single bed. The room was very spacious with a pleasent view overlooking Bedford Place. Both bedroom and bathroom were very clean and provided... More

I spent three nights here, and overall was very pleased. The location is fabulous -- in Bloomsbury, around the corner from the British Museum; steps from beautiful Russell Square and wonderful bookstores; walking distance from pretty much anywhere in central London. I had a room facing the garden; it was amazingly quiet and overlooked a huge tree (plane?) of the... More

We stayed two nights and enjoyed the central location. It's a very easy walk to the British Museum, and we also walked to Picadilly Circus, St. James Park, and Buckingham Palace. There is no lift which is something to consider as the stairs are steep and we were two stories above the ground floor. The rooms were clean and the... More
