I've stayed at the hotel many times - it suits me in terms of location and facilities. I've always had a comfortable room - especially the bed. I agree with many reviewers the bathrooms are pretty tiny but mine have always been functional. The front desk staff has been inconsistent in terms of helpfulness but I have always had good experiences with the rest of the staff - management, housekeeping, friendly doormen and bar staff.
I've read many reviews regarding the area just around the hotel and want to share a few things - yes Edgeware Road is lined with Middle eastern cafes with a lot of outdoor seating. I actually like this as I find the area quite safe late at night (I grew up in Manhattan so I like to see a lot of people around.)
If you explore the area a bit further here's what you will find - a couple of streets to the east is a rather nice residential area. On Seymour Street (going south) are a couple of pubs and a few pleasant restaurants and cafes. A bit further on is Portman Square and Wigmore Street.
I also really like Biaggi's (old world Italian) on Upper Berkeley Street.
If you cross Edgeware Road (going west on Connaught Street) and walk a couple of blocks you will pass the square where Tony Blair lives, and then come to a little area which I believe is known as Connaught Village. There are some lovely shops (eg Jimmy Choo) , a fun pubs that a real "local" called the Duke of Kendal, and some nice restaurants including Colbeh's.
There's really quite a bit around this hotel in several directions - it just takes a bit of exploring. In addition , the bus transportation is fantastic.There are around 10 different bus routes from Edgeware Road - the 6, 15 and 23 go to the West End and theatre area. The 15 also goes down Fleet Street etc all the way to the Tower of London. The 7 goes to the British Museum. The 414 goes to Harrod's and the V and A. The bus is not as fast as the tube but you get a great look at the city and it costs alot less than the tube.
