My friend and I stayed at the Melville for 2 nights earlier this week. I lived in London for many years so wanted something around this area for convenience as it is very centrally located and I like to walk into the West end. If not walking then it is 2 mins from Kings X and St Pancras, which was ideal for my friend who was leaving on the Eurostar.
We really liked the hotel, which with the modern decor has a 'boutique' feel. We were originally given the basement room which I was not keen on as I wanted to be upstairs, albeit the room was nice, clean etc. They have even gone to the trouble of having a mural (a rather cool graffiti art one) painted on the wall outside the window...a nice idea I thought! I asked if there was any possibility that we could be moved and it was no problem at all. Staff were helpful, got us a room upstairs and even carried our bags up for us. We ended up on the 3rd floor. No problem for us but it is a steep narrow stairwell due to being an older building. Our new room, No 34 was nice, modern and clean. Rooms are not big but this is a budget price for a central London hotel and really how much time do you spend in your room anyway. Bed was very comfy though pillows to soft and flat for me, but that is just my personal taste. Linen was crisp, white and spotlessly clean. The hotel decor is great and there is a lot of lovely and well chosen artwork and mirrors around the hotel and in the rooms. Room was hot as it was a sunny week but there was a fan provided in the room which we were happy to use - and were happy it was available in the room without having to ask for one. We didn't have breakfast so I'm unable to comment on that.
I would definitely stay here again.
