I was looking for a cheap, clean hotel close to a metro station and the shopping areas King's road, Marylebone, Regent street, etc and chose this hotel after reading the positive reviews here. First of all, the location is convenient and the hotel and room were clean. The bathroom was quite small, but modern. The twin room itself was also small (a bit too small to our liking and we didn't have a view so that didn't help), but the beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. We slept well although it was a bit warm due to the fact that we couldn't turn off the heating completely because the knob was stuck and we didn't want to use the airco.
Breakfast was not very interesting, the ladies were very friendly but the food and coffee/tea just weren't very tasty. On the other hand it is complementary and if you are okay with toast and jam or yoghurt and muesli I guess you're alright.
Next time when I'm staying in London with I will look for another place, there's not much wrong with Rhodes hotel, but I don't think it's a 'little gem' either.
