The hotel has had a revamp since my previous stay and has an attractive lobby area and bar/restaurant. It's located really ideally for Covent Garden market, the theatres and isn't too far from the British museum and other attractions. I walked everywhere from there. I usually prefer staying around the Piccadilly Circus area, but I may just change my mind about that and stay here again in future. The area is somehow not as run-down as Piccadilly and the hotel is reasonably close to the underground station, but still quite a slog if you're dragging 20kgs of luggage. I had a single room and it had everything I needed, including coffee and tea, toiletries and wi-fi, although I couldn't get the latter to work, but it's probably me and not the facility! I asked for a room facing the courtyard at the back based on recommendations on TripAdvisor and that was a good idea. Unfortunately my room was on the corner where the other passage veers off at 90 degrees, and that room was occupied by a vociferous cougher and he was essentially facing my window, which wasn't great. As in many hotels the soundproofing is really non-existent, but for the kind of trip I made it was ok. It was also reasonably priced considering it's location by comparison, although certainly not cheap. I didn't have the breakfast there, but saw long queues at the breakfast room every morning. They have a free luggage storage facility after checkout, which is really great, and the doorman was very helpful in flagging down a taxi for my ride to the station. The afternoon high tea look very nice and sumptious.
