Great location - small but clean

Apart from some rather large stains on the carpets throughout the hotel, everything was very clean.... See full review

Dorm room style accommodations

This hotel has a nice exterior and lobby, but the rooms themselves are more like dorm rooms than hotel rooms. The parts of our rooms that could be cleaned were clean (sink, toilet, bed) but the carpet was stained, the walls dirty and in dire need of fresh paint. On the plus side, the location is good--near Regents Park, and our room was in the back facing a school, which was empty for the summer, and thus quiet. The breakfast was very nice--they have a coffee/latte maker so you can make your own beverage of choice, yogurts, fresh fruit, and lots of breads. We stayed 2 nights during the Olympics so the prices were outrageous for the level of lodging. During a normal season, if the rates are cheap, it might be worth enduring dirty carpet. Only recommended if the price is right.

Good, but small

Everything was fine and the breakfast was just what we needed in the morning. The room and bathroom felt small, but overall it was good.

Good location, fair price

Staff was extremely helpful. Room small, but we slept well. Breakfast was diffrent; non-US, but ok. When you leave the Tube go right for 2 block, turn right for three blocks. Excellent location for the Tube; we went everywhere on the Tube. We will stay there on our next visit.

Get a map of the city, brouchures, and head for the Tube. A great experience!

Great Place to Stay

We stopped at the Americana three times this summer for stays of 2 to 4 days. The staff were super helpful and friendly. The breakfast was wonderful. Since we like to walk, we found it a great place to see many of London's attractions from. Tube access is easy, but we didn't use it as much as we had expected. Staff were very helpful with any requests or questions. They helped us with what there was to see, how to get there, the best way to book, etc. Regent's park is fantastic and just outside your door. Baker street Tube is maybe 800m and an HSBC is at the same corner. Shops, restaurants, groceries, bus, all close to hotel. Recommend highly for mobile people sho like to walk a little.

Disappointing - Very Misleading

This hotel has NOT been "completely refurbished in 2006" and it is NOT "first class". All carpeting has decades of soil ground into it, and walls are not clean either. Linens & towels are clean but skimpy. Tiny room, tiny elevator. Clean, tiny bathroom (but not updated). 4 pound charge to use the internet connection (use the internet cafe down the street for 1 pound instead). Good location for sightseeing because it's just several blocks from Baker Street underground station. Great pub nearby on the same street (Allsop's) - decent selection of restaurants on Marleybone, also not far.

Americana Hotel

Our visit was a four day stop, first visit to London. The location was great. Easy access from Heathrow via Tube. Baker st. station is only about 5oo metres. We like walking and you are close enough to walk to many attractions. Rooms are small but adequate. Breakfast was terrific. Staff very helpful and friendly. Will return!!

good location, accomodations, & price

Great for singles or couples, but way too small for families. Clean rooms. Decent free continental breakfast. Lots of restaraunts nearby. Tube within 5min walking distance. Baker St tube station with adequate number of different lines, so that making multiple changes to get to your destination not really an issue. Quiet place to come back to at the end of the day. Would definitely stay here again.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Highly recommend visting oxford if it fits your schedule. Only 50 miles away on train and they have bus tours there as well. Can definitely do it in a day. Can see the highlights in a half day if you really work.
