Just had a weekend at this hotel & can't really find anything to fault it.
On the Strand, directly opposite the Savoy, so ideally located for most of the West End Theatres. Piccadilly & Shaftsbury Avenue is just a 10 mnute walk. Covent Garden is directly behind, St Pauls & the city a short walk along the Strand. The closest tube station is Covent Garden. We came up by train to Waterloo & walked across Waterloo bridge, just a 10 minute walk.
In common with most London hotels, this was very busy. Check-in was very smooth, we had a 4th floor room in the centre of the hotel, very close to the lifts. windows overlooked a central yard, very quiet. The only noise we heard was early morning around 7.00am. No sign of any air-con, but in december this wasn't a concern, the room heating was by conventional radiator with thermo valve, very efficient.
The room was surprisingly large, king size bed, very comfortable, full size settee plus a tub chair, flat screen TV. Decor looked new, very clean as was the bathroom which had a good shower over a full size bath.
Breakfast was the usual buffet style, very good choice of hot & cold food. Coffee was served in thermos jugs which wasn't very hot but was quickly replaced on request.
We dined out so cannot comment on the Restaurant.
All of the staff were very friendly & helpful.
