Our last nights in London we stayed here. Perfect location/neighborhood if you are looking for safety and somewhere within walking distance of several tourist spots. Lancaster Gate train stop has elevator so you do not have to lug suitcases up the stairs. There is also a taxi stand about a block away.
The hotel is in the process of remodelling and it is much needed. There is an aged feel to the whole building, but in it's current condition it is clean and serviceable. The front desk staff are good with the "basics" but will not go out of their way with recommendations, etc. We did not eat in the on site restaurant, but we did partake in the happy hour drink specials. This location more so than the other hotels we stayed in has a very "European" clientele.
We were on the 5th floor and the elevators were better than average. However, on the floor itself there were two sets of stairs we had to navigate with the luggage. It was fine but I don't think our neighbors cared to much for our leaving at 6am.
The room was small but everything worked. It was strange but the hair dryer was in the top drawer of the desk and the coffee/tea in another drawer. There was a safe in the closet.
For safety purposes alone I would stay here again. By the next time I make it to London I am sure that this hotel will be fully redecorated.
