4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

What a lovely hotel, the room was so beautiful with traditional decor and fittings. The staff couldn't have been any friendlier or helpful. A few minutes walk to the west end and just as close to soho. We will be back.

Very conveniently located, about 10 minutes walk from Oxford Circus. This property is just stone's throw away from some really vibrant restaurants and bars in Soho. Though slightly old fashioned for my taste and rooms are somewhat small yet very clean property which matters more for me. Staff is super helpful and very courteous. I just wished they had remembered to inform me that Wi-fi was included in my base rate so I could have turned off my international roaming and saved some for a better tip. Breakfast is slightly overpriced given that the neighborhood has several more appealing options. Overall I felt it worth the price for a business traveller given the convenience factor. I would be happy to stay go back again.

Having braced myself for another rip off night in London, I was astonished to discover The Rathbone Hotel which is ...well, nice! It is very handily located near Tottenham Court Road, a short walk from Oxford Street, and a 15 minute walk from Euston. The room service menu is uninspiring, so I popped out to Sainsburys Local, bought my tea, and spent a very nice evening working and watching the Champions League. For anyone with a less dull life, the surrounding area is full of small, interesting looking bars and restaurants. The room was clean, the bathroom functional, and the breakfast was...nice ( although at £15 so it should be! - one day hotels will realise that they will sell more breakfasts if they cut the cost). Recommended for location and service - and the concierge is really...nice and helpful!

Thank you for your review.

I am pleased to hear that you found our location handy and the hotel nice.
I am disappointed that you thought that our room service menu is somewhat uninspiring, but we are working every day in new ideas, and on your next visit I am sure that we will have some new items that will leave you mouth-watering, like our English breakfast did.
I will also pass on your comments to our concierge, who will be delighted.

I hope to see you again soon at The Rathbone.

Comfortable stay in this boutique hotel rooms adequate and very clean not too far to walk to the theatres and to covent garden so fairly central. The white company toiletries and tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The best feature about this hotel is the breakfast which was freshly made and very tasty. Over priced but it is central London and you do get what you have paid for. Overall not a bad stay.

Really love the location, close to lots of restaurants. Small but intimate reception and bar. Like the fact it is less corporate. The rooms are ok but bathroom tired, but I believe the hotel are upgrading them, they need to for what they charge. Friendly, helpful staff. Plenty of choice if you prefer breakfast out of the hotel. Have visited many times and will again .

We booked this hotel at a discount rate. Its in a fantastic location, just off Charlotte Street which has a great range of bars and food all on the doorstep. Its also easy to walk to theatres and shopping on Oxford Street.
The staff were very friendly, the room was comfortable and clean and the breakfast was first rate for fresh fruit and tasty breads with great coffee ( a must have in my view!). So all in all a great choice, particularly if the rooms are selling at a discount.

I bboked for one night as we had a special accasion and needed to stay in the area. Read some reviews and was not sure what to expect. The reality was rather nice.
Check in - friendly and very good; got upgraded without even asking. The hotel looked very nice from outside and inside; the bar looked really nice but we did not checked it out.
the room was superb, I stayed in many hotel rooms but this one was exceptional. The best of it was that the room did not looked like a hotel room but a posh bedroom in a classy house. The bed was very good and big; the bathroom was fantastic.
We did not have any food there, so can't comment on this.
All in all, really nice stay in a superb location; would definitelly come back.

Recommend? Hell, no - I'll keep it to myself! :))
