Reviewed October 25, 2013

Reasonable hotel. Clean. Nice welcome at Reception. Decent continental breakfast included. Bedroom well equipped. A bit faded and in need of a refurb but nothing wrong with the place. Had room on fourth floor so the sound of the Underground not as obvious as it would have been on lower floors. Would happily stay there because this is a nice part of London. Just north of historic Fitzrovia and 10 minutes from the bars and restaurants of Soho. To the West is Marylebone High Street for trendy eateries and to the East Great Portland and Goodge Streets where there are some proper decent London pubs. So, a decent hotel for the price in a more interesting part of London than most.

We spent 4 nights here and found it was walking distance from the major shopping streets and close to the Oxford Circus tube station. There's also a great little pub nearby, the Horse & Groom, although we didn't eat here because the kitchen was closed on Sunday nights. The room was a good size for inner city and very clean. We found the bed and pillows too soft and you could hear the underground rumbling underneath, but apart from this we were happy with this hotel.

We were looking for somewhere (relatively!) inexpensive to stay in London for a quick one-night stay and came across this place. Our room was like a nice little apartment, with separate toilet and shower and looked like it might have been a batchelor flat at some stage. The decor was 20s - 30s, reasonably maintained albeit with a few smudges on the walls here and there; the bathroom was adequate although small and again showing a few signs of wear, basin tap turning round, enamel coming off the bath.

The best thing about this hidden hotel was that it was really convenient for travel (tube, trains etc.), shopping and pretty much everything we wanted to do was in easy walking distance; the staff were lovely, the breakfast was adequate (continental only) and we had a really nice time in London, in part at least due to this friendly, comfortable place....

I liked staying at the Astor. My room was nice, even though not modern. But that's exactly, what I liked about it. What might be an issue for others is the sound of the underground that accompanies you through the night.
The stuff is friendly, during day-time helpful... The breakfast is okay, it met my expectations.

Just had 3 nights here and we were very comfortable. Nice to stay somewhere with a bit of character rather than the usual bland corporate hotels, the Astor Court used to be a gentleman's club and a few original features were still visible in our room. Staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly and our room was spotlessly clean and spacious, we even had a sitting room which for London is a real bonus as space usually costs extra. And, joy of joys, full size bath towels! Continental breakfast was buffet style with lots of choice so no excuse for not filling up before going out. The location was great, only a short walk to the tube and buses on Regent Street or Oxford Street and taking a short cut through the BBC complex saved time and allowed us to spot a few familiar faces from the telly and see the newsroom in action. There is also a very friendly pub on the corner, just right for a nightcap. Being on the ground floor we could hear the tube underneath us at first but we stopped noticing it very quickly and they do stop at midnight until 6am ish so it didn't disturb our sleep, especially after the nightcap!

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor so could hear the tube at first -if you are a light sleeper perhaps a hi...

This was a functional hotel in a good location, but with very little frills and an undercurrent of datedness. I was allocated a ground floor room, which was spacious but very dated in its decor, and with what seems to be the obligatory chipped bath and blackness between the shower tiles despite the "heavily discounted" £126 price tag. The floor was incredibly squeeky when walked on- due to what seemed to be the construction rather than the floor-covering . The most interesting taste of real london was that what was presumably one of the tube lines seems to run directly beneath the hotel at a depth that means that every train can be heard or felt. My advice would be to enjoy the solutude between midnight and 5-ish, as there wont be much peace outside of that.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor rooms unless you are a train enthusiast.
