  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Excellent location for Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square and Theatreland. Staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. We only stayed for one night so didn't have a chance to test all the facilities hence only a 'good' for that, but the room was well equipped and comfortable.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    The major plus was the location

    The hotel walls in the old part were plywood and we had very little sleep due to noise in adjoining rooms/hall. Breakfast (not included and should have been,as a facility, by Booking) was overpriced, dry, cool and the o juice was powdered. It should be maintained and replenished to 11am or closing time as it is expensive.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    The location

    We were given a smelly room (just above the restaurant). We have to claim to have it changed (and it was without delay). The key-cards didn't work at the beginning and we needed to ask for them to be changed 3 times. It's only the 3rd time that a person from the staff came to see that it didn't work. No one offered us to carry the luggage, they looked fed up of being there. The flushing system didn't work and when we complained the answer was : you should have insisted and try several times. Yes, a 4th time it worked, but is it what we expect from a 4 stars hotel and from the staff as an answer ?

  • Older travelers

    The room was a good size, clean & comfortable with facilities to make tea & coffee and also had a small fridge. The bathroom was adequate for what we required the only complaint we had was that the sink had no plug so we had to shower as washing was not an option. The food and service at breakfast was very good,

  • Group of friends

    Hotel connected to tube station, very convenient

    Executive twin room booked for additional space, room was very small same as Delux room which was disappointing for the price paid.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The location was fantastic for getting around London with easy access to train station and underground.

    I felt the room wasn't really worth the money but can understand why it cost that much due to the location of the hotel

    It's location Great & friendly bartenders Cleanliness

  • Group of friends

    Me and my friend stayed here whilst we were attending Gay Pride. The staff were amazing and extremely welcoming. The hotel was perfectly located. Everything we needed for our weekend was within a few minutes walking distance. We didn't eat at the hotel so we cannot comment on the food. The room was nice and clean and suited our needs. We would definately stop here again.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Perfect location for a city sightseing, right above the Underground station, easily accessible from all airports.

    No internet access in some rooms, no swimming pool, limited sortiment of food in the restaurant.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    A wonderful hotel in an excellent position - staff always attentive and courteous

    We have experienced daily bottled water and shortbread biscuits at other hotels on a complimentary basis, perhaps consider this! The absence of free WiFi was disappointing.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The fixtures and fittings in the bathroom were fantastic particularly the shower (Room 808)

    Booking was made on line for 2 rooms for 1 night and paid using a credit card a few weeks previously. However on arrival it was not possible to have 2 rooms close to one another (rooms 808 and 602) and payment had not been taken in full. We were assured that both rooms were the same which they clearly were not. I didn't appreciate being woken up at 6.45am by a rubbish lorry!!! Payment was sorted on arrival however on checking out we were again told that payment was due.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The hotel was comfortable, in a good position with friendly staff.

    Internet access is at 1 star hotel level. You buy a card that is available all over the uk. It didn't work for our computer, and when we used it on the hotel's computers it was s l o W. Telephone expensive - local 14 minute call cost 15 pounds.

    Great location in the heart of the city. Pleasant surroundings.

    The alarm had a fault so we were evacuated 3 times. Including once at 1.15am. Considering the money we paid, you would really want an undisturbed nights sleep but that didn't happen... We also got stuck in a lift.

    The location is excellent and the staff are friendly. The beds are very comfortable and our room was spacious and quiet, despite being on top of a train station.

    The maintenance seems to be a bit poor. The bath front panel was falling down every time we closed the bathroom door, appliances were not properly screwed on to walls. Also, the shampoo etc. were only enough for one person, there was one bathrobe and slippers, but there were two people staying in the room. Breakfast is expensive and you have to wait almost half an hour outside in order to get a table. I guess these are minor inconveniences though.

    Hotel v. centrally located. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Only used room for sleeping and gym so cannot comment on other facilities. Had a coffee in the terrace bar and it was excellent.

    Smell of air freshener in ground floor oppresive. Feel that in a hotel of this standard internet access should be free.
