The breakfast was ok, it is accessible to streets with several affordable restaurants therefore can have lunch and dinner out. The rooms can get a bit warm in the summer but with the... More

Check in was a little slow but the receptionist was friendly. I was given an upgrade to a double room almost as a formality. The room was large with a kitchenette area. The room was very well furnished with a huge amount of storage space. The room and large bathroom were well equipped and spotless. The bed was comfortable but... More

This hotel is near the British museum (3 minute walk) and Oxford street (7 minutes walk). Though the room was in the basement! you would not have known as there was a large window which allowed plenty of light. The bathroom had 2 showers one over the bath and the other in the shower cubicle. The room not only had... More

I originally booked a single hotel room for £95 on late rooms.com at the Lancaster (directly opposite on the other side of the road) but was upgraded to a superior double at the Buckingham. Reception staff were friendly and professional. Public areas very well decorated, clean and pleasant. The room was spotlessly clean and in good order, with a large,... More
