Excellent location and hospitality

Not having been in London in over 10 years I took a stab in the dark and ht the nail on the head. Very close to Regents Park so pack your walking shoes. This hotel also has a hair dryer, in room coffee maker, and an outlet for American appliances. It's a nice walk to the shopping district and restaurants. I will definitely return. Oh - and the Eye and all other sites are just a tube ride away or a nice walk.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Be sure to have some British pounds with you. A lot of cabbies don't take credit cards or may charge you an extra fee if you use credit cards. Also if you want to buy something like a magazine at a newsstand and you don't have cash/pounds, you may have to buy a minimum amount like 50 pounds.

Only overnighted but could have stayed longer

We loved the location of this hotel... 1/2 block from the Regent Park tube station; easy 1/2 hour walk to Picadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square and 15 minute tube ride to London Eye Square. The room was small, despite being an upgrade, and the bed was only a double - unusual in this day and age to find - but it was very comfortable and well appointed. The restaurant was superb; the buffet breakfast worth every penny and the (check-in) staff were excellent. The morning reception people weren't quite as pleasant, but they weren't rude either. Would definitely stay again, and hopefully for longer next time!

Good location, the older rooms are very tired

The staff was excellent and friendly. The location of the hotel and the proximity of the tube stops made it very easy to get around. The main drawback of the place was the cleanliness of the room and the lack of working outlets

Excellent location, friendly staff

Friends and I stayed here for eight nights in two "classic" rooms and enjoyed our stay. It's very conveniently located within short walking distance of a few tube stations, and under a half-hour walk from the Euston and St, Pancras train stations, British Museum, British Library, Oxford St. and Marylebone High St. shopping areas, etc. Unfortunately, a couple of very noisy men were in the room next to us, with several guests, and started partying loudly after 11p.m. for 3 or 4 nights in a row. Only a door was between the "classic" rooms so we heard everything! Perhaps we should have phoned the desk, but didn't because we wanted no retaliatory nastiness from the men. There is no sound-proofing between these rooms, as one would expect in a 4-star hotel room. The hotel should have placed the four of us in the adjoining rooms, and this would have helped somewhat; however even the friends on the other side of us heard the noise generated by these men!! For this reason, I rate the hotel 4 instead of 5 stars. Everything else about our stay was positive... Breakfast was excellent, a generous buffet with many choices including an omelet station, cappuccinos and lattes if requested. The staff everywhere were very pleasant and helpful. Rooms, while small, were nicely appointed!

October 2013 Stay

Nice hotel, Wonderful staff, bar, breakfast and restaurant. Very convenient to the Great Portland Street underground station, a Pret a Manger, the Green Man Pub, and Regents Park for walking/jogging/biking. I had a "Superior" room with two "queen" beds. more the size of a single bed. Room was very clean and well appointed. bathroom sink clogged during my stay, the wireless connection is marginal, and not all of the outlets worked at the desk. Overall, worth the stay

Nice Stay

Overall it worked. Easy to get to. clean. friendly staff. We were first given a room that was suited more for someone who needed handicap amenities and asked to switch rooms mostly do to the bathroom door making noise. They were very accommodating. The new room as smaller and my feet hung off the bed by morning. I am 5'5". The first bed was longer but we did not want to request another switch. All else was great!

solid vacation hotel

The rooms were somewhat small, but average by european standards. Breakfast was very pricey. There was a take out bar to get coffee and sandwiches with reasonable prices and the staff was very pleasant. The hotel was near 3 tube stations, which made it very easy to get around. Regents Park was only a block away and very nice to walk though.

City break

The hotel overall is average. The foyer, bar, restaurant are all very nice, and definitely worthy of the 4 star rating, if not a little steep on prices. We had a classic room, and even though it was nice, it had seen better days. Furniture was tired and could do with a major make over. That said, the room was spotless and was kept very clean. At check in, they tried very had to up sell to a better room, but the price was high. Location not bad, easy walk to Oxford street. There is a open-top bus stop right beside the hotel, so that was handy. So, average overall. Have stayed in a few Melia's hotels, and the White house is at the bottom of the pile only because of the tired room.
