“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Stayed here for one night when going to theatre. The executive room was a great size, the bathroom/shower were fab, hotel staff were very nice and friendly and the breakfast was great too!!! It was a 2 minute walk to Leicester Square and another 2 minutes to the theatre...... Location was excellent.
Would definitely recommend and will stay again next time I visit

We stayed two nights at this hotel, and it was a good experience. Hotel is close to Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square. Staff on hotel was very serviceminded, polite and smiling in all functions. Room was ok for two persons with good bathroom. We had a rate which included breakfast. This was very good, and again very good staff!

We were very pleased indeed with this hotel.
The location is superb and right next to the National Gallery and handy for restaurants, shows and within walking distance of many of the famous sites of London.
The staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.
Our room on the fifth floor was newly refurbished and very clean and comfortable and also quiet.
We would certainly stay here again.

God hotel in Trafalgar Square, friendly staff and good breakfast.
But WiFi was very bad in my room ( almost no coverage at all)
The staff in breakfast was outstanding in service, very friendly and serviceminded, the rooms was quite small if compairing with European standards so ask for the size of the room .

Room Tip: ask for the size of the room ,small rooms if you are more than 2 persons.

We found this hotel very easily and is in an ideal location, just moments from Trafalgar square. The lady at reception gave very good service and when we arrived in our room, moments later received a phone call from her asking if our room was to our liking which was a very nice gesture. The room was smaller than in other hotels I've stayed in but had brilliant air conditioning (it was such a hot weekend so was very grateful) and great windows instead of two of the four walls so the rooms was very bright and open. The Rain Forest showers I had read about were amazing, however the bathroom (like the room) was very small and due to there being only one mirror which was located in the bathroom and none in the bedroom, it was a struggle for both my boyfriend and I to get ready.

I stayed in the hotel on a business trip after booking a few weeks in advance. I paid £160 for a double room.

The room was very clean, smart ensuite and one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in.

However, I tried to add another nights stay and the same room was £290! I understand that this is central london, but my advice is to watch the price (and book early)

Lovely food (£19 for two courses) and great staff - happy to help.

There aren’t many genuinely quiet streets right in the heart of London. But they do exist - and we’re on one of them.
