We booked the hotel as a mystery 5 star booking through Lastminute.com for £99 for the night. The location was the key factor since we were going a show.
When we read the recent reviews for the Hampshire, it filled us with fear that we were going to be staying in an unfinished building site with very rude staff. Thankfully the reality was different!
As we walked towards the Hampshire with bags, a well presented porter swiftly came to our aid and offered to carry our bags. The reception was clean and tastefully decorated with no signs of workmen.
We arrived 30 minutes before official check in time but we the receptionist did not seem to mind and booked us in. After a few minutes, they informed us that since the king size room booked was not ready, we would be upgraded to a luxury king.
The room itself was a good size- spacious even for London! Everything was clean and it appeared to have been recently modernised. We were on the 7th floor adjacent to the suite rooms. At this level, there was still a little noise in the morning which was probably due to sleeping with the window open (The air con was not really up to much)
We didn't have breakfast included in the price but ate at the hotel anyway because my partner had to work in the morning. The advertised breakfast price was £21 each but came to less than that for two even though I had full English and she had eggs benedict with smoked salmon.
Overall, I think this is a great hotel to stay in for going to the theatre but lacks leisure facilities for longer stays
