I must have walked past this hotel in Fleet Street many times but only recently had an opportunity to stay in it. Checking in was very efficient, but perhaps too efficient. I felt like a room-user and not a guest. The room was superb, overlooking the courtyard at the Fleet Street side of the hotel. The bed was very comfortable indeed and overall cleanliness and comfort were all 5 star. There was plenty of space in the wardrobes, nice toiletries in the bathroom and an iron (sometimes a rare item in London hotels).
I slept very well though I'd have to say that noise from lively conversations in the courtyard area would make me careful about the room I was offered in a future visit. I went down to one of the best breakfasts I have had (only the Hilton at Stansted Airport is in the same class). A wonderful array of bread and a very nicely cooked and presented cooked breakfast.
Overall a very restful and enjoyable one-night stay, making me wonder why I had not tried this hotel before. It's now firmly on my preference short list. The fact that it is only a 10 minute walk from Holborn Viaduct station with a direct connection to London St. Pancras and King's Cross to the north and London Bridge to the south is very convenient.
