I wrote my first review about this Hotel a few years ago and thought it's time to write another, since I've been there numberous of times and there has been a few changes. For example there is this new annex building, in which I've been now twice - last time was in October. This new annex building is newly renovated and looking good. I earlier missed the air conditioning, but that is there also. Only one big downside in this hotel is it's breakfast room. It was ok for the main building itself, but now with the annex building it's a way too small and crowded all the time. It is also very hot in there, because there is no air conditioning. The hotel desperately needs a bigger breakfast room WITH air conditioning. Breakfast itself is moderate, but ok. I suggest you'd pay four pounds more and get English breakfast. That'll keep you going!
As we all know, the rooms are small, but they are clean, which is the most important thing and they are nicely decorated in my opinion. The staff is always nice and friendly! Location is just perfect with Piccadily station just few hundred meters away and also only few blocks from the Hyde Park. it takes only 10 minutes to walk to Oxford street.
I go to this hotel maybe once or twice a year with friends to watch football in London and it just suits for us perfectly. I must say, that if I was to travel with wife and kids, Iäd probably take another hotel with bigger rooms, but if I was short of money, this is still not a bad option.
I will be back.
