Stayed one night at The George Hotel mid-week. Cartwright Gardens has a number of hotels arranged in a horseshoe around gardens, close to Russell Square tube station and an easy walk to Kings Cross or St Pancras mainline stations. I had booked online a couple of months before, and check in was swift. The room was up a couple of flights of stairs, and was simply furnished, with comfortable twin beds and some desk furniture. The small shower cubicle was physically in the room which I had not experienced before. There was a larger shared bathroom with toilet on the floor below. The included wifi was of a decent strength - but comes with a stern warning not to download programs or stream. Bandwidth is obviously an issue which is probably linked to the competitive price of the room. Breakfast was included in the price of the room - but didn't commence until 8am. Given I had an early train to the north from Kings Cross leaving at 7.45 I was unable to avail myself, and no alternative such as a takeaway continental breakfast was offered. My own view is that an 8am start for breakfast (which is clearly outlined on the hotel's website so this wasn't a surprise to me) is too late in the nation's capital when a full day of exploring or a train connection is likely for many of this hotel's clientele. However, the hotel was quiet, meaning a restful sleep was experienced.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The perfect location for a stay in central London - quiet and peaceful facing central gardens but within walking distance of the British Museum, Covent Garden, Soho and the West End, ideal for both theaters and shopping. If you prefer to use the tube, the hotel is only 2 stops from Oxford Circus and Covent Garden and only 3 stops from Leicester Square. All bedrooms in the George have TV, direct-dial phone, tea/coffee making facilities, safe, etc., and the prices include a traditional English breakfast and tax – no more to pay.
