The hotel is really nice! I stayed there for just one night in september 2013. It has a huge bed, good decoration, and great attention from the people who worked at the hotel. Breakfast was also fine!
The only problem we had was that there was no air conditioner in the room, even though we had a premium room. We stayed in London during a really warm day and during the afternoon it was a problem. We also couldn't communicate abroad, we asked the receptionist who did her best to make it work but there was no way we could use the telephone.
Anyway, I recommend this hotel, probably not during summer, but for the rest of the time it's more than fine!

I agree with the comment in August that "This is a generic large hotel cut up into smaller sections to feign "boutique" status. ". You have to walk down the road to a neighbouring hotel for breakfast - not a good idea in the rain. And whilst my room was comfortable, when I made coffee in the room, the milk portions must have been significantly outdated, as the milk flocculated when added to hot water. Quality control clearly isn't their thing here. But - itr's a convenient position, the staff are friendly. But it could be so much better.

We were satisfied wih the hotel on the whole. It is in a grest location and close to many restaurants.The staff is pretty helpful but some did not speak or understand English very well, so we had a difficult time geting directions to places we wanted to go. The room was clean, the bed comortble, but the furniture, especially sofa, very uncomfortable.There is a microwave and refrigerator but not much else. Our room was on the street side so many noises like motorcycles and garbage trucks could be heard below our room.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room above the first level.

Stayed here previously and thought it was ok, this time for 1 night and arrived in the evening tired and ready to retire early for the night and watch some tv. The room was on the small side and just outside the lift on the 2nd floor. The tv had only 5 basic channels and the remote didn't work. Relatively good night sleep although woken several times with people coming out of the lift to their rooms in the early hours and loudish voices. Bathroom looking tired and very small. Only a short overnight stay and left early without breakfast but overall not impressed and overpriced, staff friendly though!

Room Tip: If given a room outside the lift - ask for a change as you may be woken in the night by noise.

We decided to visit London and do the tourist thing. We wanted to be near the action and within easy reach of things. We chose this hotel after looking at reviews, thanks once again to Tripadvisor.

The hotel is very easy to get to on foot and is about 15 minutes walk from Euston station. On turning into the road where the hotel is, it reminded me of the game Monopoly. It was obvious that this hotel owned other property in the road and had put their corporate front on them. The buildings are hundreds of years old and look to be in excellent condition. They are very large terraced houses, which have kept their integrity on the outside but have been knocked through in places inside, to allow access.

As we entered the building we went through to the reception and then to our room. The building and our room are pleasantly decorated and clean although a little tired in places. Our room was one of contradictions. The bedroom was very spacious but the access via a tiny vestibule was a struggle with cases and spring-loaded doors to contend with. The bathroom was a good size but the toilet was against the wall with the toilet roll holder on the wall against your ribs. The bed was very comfortable and we would have slept well except for the single-pane traditional sash windows affording no protection from noise of traffic. There is a small ‘kitchenette’ built into cupboard, which was very useful, with tea/coffee/kettle/cups etc.

Breakfast was, as described by many reviews, down the road. It was plentiful and pleasant enough.

We found this hotel was great for Oxford Street and obviously the tube network. There are several traditional pubs and a few nice restaurants around the nearby British Museum or not far from it. We would use this hotel again but we’d ask for a quiet room at the back. The normal full price of the hotel is not worth it for what this is but at the right price it is perfectly adequate and pleasant enough.

Just a quick mention needs to be made for anyone with disabilities who relies on places being DDA compliant. There are a few steps leading to the front door so you’d have to check regarding another access for wheelchairs. Our bath had a shower in it and requires a ‘big step’ to get in. This would probably not suit older or disabled people but there may be walk-in showers in other rooms?

Room Tip: Get a room at the rear!

Nice place to stay as long as you don't stay in the basement rooms ! Mine was claustrophobic & the window wouldn't open so it was stifling ! Went back to Reception & given a very nice room on 1st floor instead.Lift wasn't working, but Reception did offer to carry my bags if needed.
Room upstairs was great - just as I would expect from this group of hotels.
Breakfast was next door in the Clarendon and was as good as ever.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back - but not in the. Basement !
