The superb location of this small hotel (about 12 rooms) fully justified our choice. First the pluses: small Georgian mansion located in Bloomsbury, right next to the picturesque Bedford square, without crowds and hubbub inherent to any large or chain hotel, ideal location not only for your theater attractions but for every major Central London destination, even when walking. Clean rooms with a hint - though vague - of a boutique hotel, along with affordable (for Central London) value. The bed was really wide and comfortable. As one of the previous reviewers noted, the rooms are sound-proof as far as room-to-room sound insulation is concerned. We booked it through Expedia and got a $200 a night rate. Some reviewers complained about the room size but from our previous experience it's rather normal for Central London. Now the downsides: if you have more than a carry-on luggage it's going to be really cumbersome to drag your bags up the really narrow stairs. The front desk/concierge services looked pretty much disinterested in the hotel guests. The bathroom lacked above the mirror lighting which made the shaving or make-up close to impossible. Our windows faced Gower street, and though our room was on the second floor, the pretty serious 24-hr a day traffic was a nuisance, for the windows sound-proof quality deserves to be significantly improved. To summarize: decent hotel, decent value, but definetely not a 4-stars advertised.
