We spent six nights at this small, family-run hotel, following the recommendation of a friend, and would definitely go there again. The location is excellent, just around the corner from the British Museum, at walking distance from the Covent Garden and shopping areas, and less than 5 minutes on foot from the Central line metro station. Our double room was very clean, comfortable, with adequate furnishing (a small but functional closet, a safe, two chairs and a sitting table, a stand for a suitcase). The bed was extremely comfortable. The room faced the main street, but the double window kept it well insulated from the traffic noise. The bathroom was very small, but modern and spotlessly clean. Full English breakfast was served every morning, and also someone used to continental breakfast could do fairly well with fresh toast, jam, cereals and yogurt. Mind you, of course it is not a 4-star hotel and you’ll have to put up with some minor inconveniences: the walls between rooms are thin and you can hear a good deal from your neighbours, the shower niche is pretty narrow and someone may find it rather inconvenient, and if you have many pieces of luggage you won’t have much room to spread them around. There is no lift, but we got help with our suitcases and it was no problem in the end. Overall a good-value choice, highly recommended.
