We booked online but then received an email from the hotel to state it was a basement room and to ask if this was ok.I called them but they said it was a basement with a window and en-suite so we went ahead...

I chose Gloucester Place Hotel as the room was just £49 it was close to the underground and it looked nice in the pictures. Half and... More

I stayed here for one night on business. The location is very good, and the room was ok. The bed was comfy, but the pillows were old and lumpy. I was here on a hot and muggy July night and the room was very warm, but there was a small portable air con unit. Unfortunately it only had one setting,... More

The room for 4 was tiny and there was no space to move. Get in and sit on the bed. Tiny bathroom for 4 people to share. Breakfast was terrible. We cancelled our return booking for 2 weeks later and will not return.

Stayed for two nights earlier this week (July 8th and 9th) with my wife. Initially a little apprehensive when told we would be in a basement room of the adjoining property but pleasantly surprised when shown into the building. The large entrance hall was well lit and very clean as were the stairs down to the basement and the basement... More

We stayed at the Gloucester because we needed to be close to Harley Street and not as a tourist. This is a typical London terraced property within walking distance to Marble Arch and Oxford Circus/Street. Check in was very simple and this hotel owns the property next door which is used in conjunction with the main hotel. Our room (No.25)... More

Lovely place, Old fashioned basic hotel - a bit noisy but the central loction made up for it. Friendly and efficient staff - great breakfast and service.... Worth going back to next time I am in London.

I quite enjoyed my overnight stay in this hotel, I was allocated a family room at the front of the building, so it was very spacious, but a bit noisy due to traffic. Overall the decor is a bit old, but reasonably clean and the hotel is in a great location. The continental breakfast was surprisingly good.

Stayed here on a recent business trip to London. This is typical London old style hotel. The room was clean and the breakfast amble. The biggest issue I had was with noise, all night long I would here other guesting coming and going slamming doors. I was also on the very top floor, there is no lift in this hotel.... More

This hotel was in a top location in Mayfair close to Selfridges (walking distance). The rooms were very clean, well maintained and spacious. The breakfasts were also more than adequate. The only negative to my stay is I would have suggested the staff could have been friendlier - all in all I would be more than happy to stay here... More
