We stayed for two nights in the weekend. Hotel is close to the metro and walking distance to city centre (trafalger square) which is nice. We had very a small room but very clean and it had everything we needed (nice bed and bathroom). Windows are a bit hard to open and when on the main road side there is... More

Terrible hotel in Bloomsbury - stairs down through the breakfastroom and then stairs up again, to get to the room! The room was very small - toilet app. 1m2. First morning, when we had breakfast, rats was running down the stairs just outside the window. The staff in the breakfast was not very friendly - not english people. We didn't... More

We have just stayed at the Cavendish Hotel, thinking it was the same one we stayed in a couple of years ago! To our horror, when we went to reception, we realised our mistake, but there was little we could do about it. I had indicated on our booking form (we booked several weeks ago) that we would like the... More

Stayed in room 106, which faces the main road which is very busy and noisy. The window did not shut so it was draughty and noisy. There was a delivery truck that parked outside my window and proceeded to deliver bed linen to all hotel on the street via 'biffa' bins on all wheels so that's all I heard for... More

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! It is the worst place I have ever stayed at in all my years of travel. Our room was tiny! The double bed was lumpy and was pushed up against the wall so that my husband had to climb over me to get into his side of the bed. There was a tiny wardrobe... More

We paid £105 for a double room with cooked breakfast and have to say it was ok. Room was a fair size, was clean and bed was comfy. We had a room on the back so weren't bothered by road noise. The breakfast was good, waitress service was efficient. Overall a decent place to stay and well positioned for Soho.

I have just arrived at the worst hotel I have stayed at in the past 5 years! Unfortunately it was booked for me by a work colleague and I didn't have the opportunity to check it out on trip adviser first. I have the delights of a single room where the eidth of the room is the length of the... More

Tiny,noisy rooms ten feet from a main road. Paper thin internal walls and poor secondary double glazing.Avoid at all costs. Immediately booked into another hotel. Worst ever seen by me in London. Don't be fooled by the claims on the website.Nothing more to say.

I had booked a double room in a 4 star hotel, and arriving (@ 1 a.m.) was given a tiny room with a queen size bed (120cm wide) for two. The room was cold as hell, there was a draft from the window and the bad was situated under the window and in a way that you had to climb... More
