We have stayed at The Rathbone several times over the last few years, because the location is perfect, just north of Oxford Street, Soho and Covent Garden. We usually book and pay in advance to get the best deal, and this time booked a king bed executive double room, which was spacious and comfortable, with a comfortable bed and and a nice sofa.
Minor gripes were the lack of bedside tables (no space near the sides of the bed), no razor point (toothbrush charged on the room desk!) and no heated towel rail (there was a redundant one, but this was disconnected when the mains heating system was replaced with air-con / heating systems to the bedrooms), so towels stayed cold and damp overnight.
The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The area is quite peaceful and nice for a stroll.
Calls for more tea bags etc were quickly dealt with. You are given a “club card” that entitles you to 10% off in selected local area restaurants, a nice touch.
There a nice pubs (try the Newman’s Arms for good beer, good company and great pies), cafes, restaurants nearby, along with newsagents, supermarkets, deli’s etc.
All in all it is ideal for a few days break in London.
