This hotel is near everything we wanted to do. Museums, theater, river etc. We were able to walk everywhere. Room was very nice. We upgraded to a larger room and it was great. All of the staff was helpful. We enjoyed the bar but not the restaurant so much. Would go back here again next time.

Have stayed here twice now and both times the level of service has been excellent. Large comfortable rooms that are well equipped. The hotel is right on the door step of trafalgar square and a short walk to the west end. Also right by the river. If your looking for a base to explore London then this is the place... More

Check-in not smooth as it was to be all by computer and self-service but it would not work so done by reception. Quick easy checking in would be super. We would go back as location is super. Room clean and like new. Very nice. Breakfast pricy. Only two tea bags in room. TV not easily viewable from bed. Remote well... More

Stayed here over night on the way back from a 3 day Parisian break and on the way home. We took a taxi from Eurostar that was relatively quick and inexpensive. It's location meant we were down the road from the Mall, Big Ben, Trafalgar and the River Thames and Embankment. Charging Cross railway station was at the end of... More

Very grand and smart entrance and reception areas and some good features such as easy accessed free wifi - offered lots of great facilities for business users. I 'd say best for a no frills business stop over. Although well sited and convenient for theatres. Pictures on the site suggest it's something really special and we chose this for a... More

Living in the UK and on a Megabus route, I usually go to London 4 or 5 times a year for pleasure. Having friends in the area usually means I'll stay with them, but sometimes a hotel stay is dictated and I like to spend around £100-125 a night at most in the area of my choosing. As we were... More

The size of the room was comfortable and adequate for two with ample drawer and closet space. Bathroom was also large in comparison to the many B&Bs around London. The location was centrally located next to Trafalgar Square, National Gallery, many tourist attractions, countless restaurants, and the Underground. Location was important since we packed only a rollaway and had to... More

Average hotel rooms. Better than average service at front desk. Laundry room with soap provided by hotel was a plus. Great location but be prepared to pay for it. Easy walk to the eye and other sights. Watch out for the breakfast in the hotel lobby. I sat down, had toast and tea and they charged me for an entire... More

Hotel Service was excellent, bar/restaurant was good, service a little slow at peak points (breakfast) if you chose a la carte. Continental breakfast was available. Excellent geographic location, you could walk to Piccadilly, excellent staff, very helpful, very safe, 5 star on that front. Rooms are small and not being accustomed to having the air conditioning turned off while you... More
