Wonderful Staff, Great Location!

The staff, including the hotel manager, could not have been more accommodating. All my requests were taken care of and I was completely satisfied. I will definitely stay at the hotel in the future.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Oxford Street shopping is a five minute (or less) walk and there is a TESCO grocery store about two blocks away which was very convenient.

Small room but great location and staff

I traveled alone and stayed one night in December. The room was typical for this type of hotel in London (or NYC) - the bed takes up most of the room and the bathroom is no bigger than a closet, the shower is the size of a coffin . But, hey, it's clean and warm and I only needed to sleep. The location is perfect for shopping, restaurants, public transport etc. The staff are really good - friendly and efficient. No free wi-fi. You do hear street noise (garbage collection etc) but nothing too bad - what you expect in a city.

Great Location

Although a smaller room by American standards, the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Was disappointed that it was necessary to get to another hotel for a tour bus pick up, as this type of amenity was not available at the hotel. Minor inconvenience. Overall a pleasant experience and would stay there again.

Sophisticated and sleek

Really loved the Rathbone. Located off the beaten path and surrounded by many great restaurants. They actually provide a 10% discount card to select restaurants in their "group". Hotel is extremely clean with friendly, professional service. Room was comfortable, slept like a baby. Only drawback was that they charged 15 pounds per day for Wifi.

good price for london, not a bad location, clean room

For a downtown London hotel the price is reasonable. The rooms are old, beds could use an upgrade. Overall not a bad spot for the cost and worked just fine.

Quality and Style

Unusually, this hotel provided all that we wished of a brief visit to London. The staff were exceptionally helpful, the room was clean and quiet and the location was excellent for access to restaurants and cultural activities.

great hotel in a great location

this was my 2nd time here and it was just as expected. in a great location , walking distance to soho and theatreland. located a short 5 minute walk from googe underground station - it's easy to get to from LHR (if you're taking the tube). hotel is quiet and had everything that I needed. only bummer was wifi was pretty expensive at the hotel (15 pounds/day) and it was the only reliable wifi available - but performed well. might be a little more than hotels a bit further away, but the time and money saved from not having to use taxi's makes it break close to even. looking forward to my next visit to the UK and will stay here again. will definately stay here again

nice place

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel rooms were very clean. The breakfast was a little expensive but certainly convenient. The connection to the wifi was not good as you went further up the building. 15 pounds a day seems a lot since many hotels will do free wifi. The side street of the hotel was quite noisy in the mornings as local businesses were setting up or having trash emptied, etc. Definately don't want to open windows if you like it quiet.

Eighth London trip in 10 years

Probably the best all around hotel experience in 8 trips to London. Would have liked it a bit warmer in my room, or at least another blanket, and was frequently bothered by sun (yes,believe it or not, it was sunny all week) streaming in through a gap a foot wide and five feet high between draperies that would not close.

Soho and theater district an easy and apparently safe walk.
