Great location 1 block from the tube, convenient to buses, close to the British Museum. My Executive room was large by London standards, quiet and clean. A minor complaint was the windows in these rooms do not open. [...] Reserving a room with
breakfast is not a good deal. They offered me a better deal on breakfast at checkin. I opted to skip the hotel breakfast entirely. There are many restaurants nearby where you can eat for less. I would have given a five star rating except for the exorbitant phone charges. 3 pounds/minute to call the US! There is no excuse for rates this high when you can buy a phone card 1/2 block from the hotel that costs about 5p/minute. If you travel with a laptop, check out Boingo International wireless access. It worked perfectly for me in the hotel, saving quite a bit of money over the hotel's internet access rates.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
If you're not in a big rush, skip the tube and take the double-decker bus. It's less crowded and you get a great view of London along the way.
