Quite disappointed on three counts so I've knocked off one point for each disappointment. 1) Wrong Hotel I had booked for the Arran House next door as I'd stayed there previously, but got put up in the Hotel Cavendish instead. 2) Loud Noise I was 'upgraded' to a room which had a sloping floor, overlooked the busy road despite requesting...

I'm not difficult as a person, but i had a very bad experience with this hotel. I had ground floor and tiny room which was located next to the breakfast room (then bad smell and sleepless nights). I had also a garden door in my room (very old, no isolation, then very cold. Walls where old and broken. The heating... More

Having stayed here before and had a reasonable stay, I thought that it would be good to stay there again when I decided to treat my mum for her birthday. My oh my was I wrong. First I found a blood stained towel in the bathroom and then there was a strange smell coming from there which got worse as... More

Great location, short walk from Euston station and managed to walk to some of the main attractions and places. Comfortable room, basic facilities and breakfast. Had an enjoyable stay and staff were very helpful.

Very disappointing and definitely not a 4 star as advertised. I had a single room which was tiny even by London standards. The TV didn't work staff were OK. The hotel is very shabby. My room had a blind with mould on it. Location is central but I would not recommend this hotel particularly if you are looking for a... More

There was a strange smell as you walk in, our room was behind the reception and we were hit by the smell of cannabis when we walked in the room! The window was wide open overlooking the jungle (garden) at the back! We were kept awake most of the night by the man on reception talking loudly. Didn't get what... More

I stayed at this hotel whilst attending a conference at Senate House, which is just around the corner. It was in an ideal location for me - I arrived at London Paddington station, and travelled via the underground to Euston Square which is around 400 metres from the hotel. The staff were friendly and efficient. My room was rather small... More

The only good thing about this hotel, is the location. Easy walking distance to Tottenham Court Road, many shops and cafees and two tube stations. However, at the same time this location makes it very noisy, as Gower Street is a fairly busy road, even at night. Then the bad, and oh boy where do i start ? The whole... More

This hotel met our requirements. Near Euston, ensuite, full English breakfast, tea and coffee making facilities at a budget price. The room was serviced daily and the towels were always new and clean. The breakfast was very good and the staff were attentive. For the price we paid the hotel provided good value for money.

From booking in till departure very good. The staff all very polite professional and very helpful. The hotel is ideally placed for theatre shopping and tube.Breakfast great. Just a small change required - hotel information booklet and waste bin in bedroom would be nice. Would recommend 100%

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions.
