Booked the Hotel Oxford for a very special four day break through BA and chose this hotel as it seemed to have good reviews and was in a quiet location . On arrival we were checked in to our superior room and quickly discovered that the air conditioning was not working . The room was extremely warm and the window opened onto an inner courtyard which smelt of cooking smells from the kitchen so no fresh air . On asking at reception we were told that the air conditioning for the whole hotel was off , staff simply shrugged their shoulders as if to say tough . We spent four very uncomfortable nights in a very cramped hot room . At 8'oclock the next morning and every morning afterwards the workmen were outside presumably repairing the air conditioning . Our third night we were kept awake by loud voices banging and walking around from what we assumed was a room upstairs . At 1am my husband phoned down to reception but they were very uncoperative. The next morning in reception i got the normal shrug of the shoulders and was told that above the 2nd floor where we were was a private residence so again tough ! We were under the impression that the whole building was a hotel . Now onto the room itself It was spotlessly clean but incredibly small, literally only just enough room to walk around the bed but nowhere to sit and relax , also no tea or coffee making facilities although there was a fridge and safe , Just because they provide slippers and toiletries does'nt make a four star hotel . Breakfast was adequate but did'nt appreciate the waitress calling out across the room for our room number ! Overall as you can gather we were extremly disappointed were thankful that we were only there for a short time . BA take note that you are reccommending a hotel which is not of four star quality and apart from location would certainly not stay there again .
