My room was very small - stated to be a double for single occupation - but really was what you'd expect for a small single. The decor was almost non-existent with no frills in the room although TV and a small kettle were provided. The wardrobe was very wobbly, the bathroom was clean but the fully tiled floor looked like it had not seen any bleach for some time. The lavatory seat and other fittings seemed to be the cheapest that could be found. In general the hotel seemed not to have had any upgrade apart from some new paint on the walls since the mid-1980's. The whole place shows a significant lack of investment over the last several years. Breakfast was served in the small basement restaurant room and was quite adequate but I would say no more than that. The room was surprisingly quiet with no internal noise, the bed was comfortable but unfortunately a neighbour started on his d.i.y. at 4am, which spoiled things a bit!
I try to be honest in my reviews and with that in mind I would not recommend this hotel as good enough for a break with your significant other, particularly for a romantic few days. If all you want is a bed for the night in a very good location then it would be ok. You certainly wouldn't want to spend much time in your room.
The Seven Dials area is a vibrant and diverse place and would make a good location for any visit to the centre of London. There are some good bars / restaurants, shops and pubs within walking distance. This hotel is ideally situated, but parking may be a problem due to the one-way and pedestrianised roads.
I wouldn't have been quite so hard on this hotel if I thought I'd had a bargain, but £120 a night for effectively a single room with a double bed sounds a bit expensive to this country yokel. I have had very much better from the likes of Premier Inn in London recently for not much more. Would I stay here again? I wouldn't dismiss it, but this wouldn't be my first choice next time.
