“Great staff”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

I stay in London 3 or 4 times a year. This hotel has the most friendly staff i have met in London.
The rooms for the most part are a bit small however the breakfast is very good. The hotel is in a central part of London one can walk to Oxford street in 15 minutes

Stayed here in December with my boyfriend as a 21st birthday present. From arrival the staff were polite and welcoming, happy to help. The room itself was amazing, and even though by a main road, the double glazed windows seemed to keep the sound out. The bed was really comfy and the room has standard facilities for a hotel in London.
The hotel is close to everything which was good when travelling about and getting to the local whetherspoons!
My boyfriend and I had breakfast at the hotel which was general continental and fried breakfast but of a high quality with butchers choice sausages and fresh juice. Due to it being my birthday, we got my breakfast for free which was a plus :) but even at a tenner you cannot complain!

All in all, a good stay :) thank you

This hotel is located in Southampton Row, very near the British Museum. I dropped in for lunch at the bar, as the restaurant is only open for dinner. There are a few tables in the bar area as well as seating in the lounge area. We ordered the steak and chips and the fish and chips. Both were very good, and the price reasonable. The steak was a good size, cooked just right and was tender and moist. The fish (haddock) was nice and flaky with a thin crust batter. Service was good and fast. The best thing about this bar is that there are very few people in it during lunch time so you have the whole place practically to yourself !

I stayed at this hotel over the summer to commute to the university everyday. Being an American in an unfamiliar area was tough, but not only did the hotel help us to have a good nights' sleep every night, but they also went above and beyond to help us. For example, my apple computer charger broke and one of the staff members working there not only helped me to fix my charger, but also gave me a new one. Everyone working there is so friendly and so dedicated to all of the guests staying in the hotel. The hotel is in walking distance from the museum and other great sights as well. The rooms are also really nice: clean, cosy, and fashionable. The price to stay at this hotel is also very reasonable for what you are getting, I would highly recommend this place.

The hotel is on a good route from 3 main line stations, Euston, St Pancras and Kings Cross into Central London. 5 mins from two tube stations connected to the Central and Piccadilly lines plus buses outside the front door. Very clean, friendly and the online website price excellent. Good sized rooms not often found now in better value London hotels. It looks as if it has been recently renovated. Lots if dining choices close by. British Museum near

We booked a deal off one of the late booking sites as we needed a central hotel at a reasonable price. This hotel delivered on all counts. It was a very reasonable price indeed: £121 is what we paid for a 'deluxe king size' The room was large & clean & quiet as it wasn't on the main Southampton row side (604) The bed was excellent, the linen good & the bathroom, whilst suffering a little bit from being internal & with a few drain smells occassionally, was very well stocked with all sorts of goodies including a spare toothbrush, a shaving kit & a shoe shine sponge!
The staff were smiley & friendly and the location, not far from Covent Garden, Trafalgar square & all main central London attractions & with lots of restaurants & a starbucks in close proximity was great.
