A friend raved about the architecture and interior of this hotel. I loved staying in this hotel but its grandeur is fading. I don't mind it being a little shabby around the edges as it feels like a London landmark - something historic that we should treasure.
The room I stayed in was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a kettle with tea and coffee sachets. Despite it being fully booked, it was not noisy and I had a good night's sleep. The staff were friendly and helpful. One went out of her way to help me photocopy a page from a guide book so that I didn't have to carry it around.
Checking in was quick and out even quicker - I was able to drop the key into a speedy checkout box.
The hotel is in Bloomsbury so is very close to the British Museum and also the Charles Dickens Museum. I paid for room only so can't comment on the food but I enjoyed a drink in the bar - worth a visit.
