Great location, great staff.

Would recommend Tue, Aug 13, 2013
Great location for theatres, restaurants and British Museum - close to Soho amenities and Tottenham Court Rd tube . Walked to Haymarket in about 15 minutes. Travelling alone so prepared for worst when booking single room at value rate but in fact room was good, and reasonable size for one. Certainly above my previous experiences. Immaculately clean, quiet and bed comfortable.Staff could not have been more helpful. Will definitely book again if good rate available.

Entertainment hint

Easy walk to theatre district and to British Museum

Great location, decent rooms, small problems

Would recommend Mon, Jun 24, 2013
The hotel has a very nice location -- a 10-20 minute walk to theaters, museums, Covent Garden, book stores, shopping, Soho, Chinatown -- and a helpful staff. My single room was small (I'd say standard European), with a shower but no tub, but clean and comfortable, about what I expected for the price I paid. My biggest complaint was noise in the late evening: there are several nearby pubs, and a lot of sound comes in on Friday and Saturday nights, even with the windows closed. The wireless connection was also outrageously expensive, and not very fast. Overall, I might look around for a different hotel my next time in London, but I certainly wouldn't mind coming back.

Dining

The Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack, 21A Foley Street,is not very fancy, but has very good seafood.

Wonderful Staff, Great Location!

Would recommend Tue, Jan 22, 2013
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 hint

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

Would recommend Wed, Dec 19, 2012
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

Would recommend Tue, Oct 16, 2012
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

Would recommend Thu, Mar 22, 2012
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

Would recommend Sun, Feb 19, 2012
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.

Dining

If your staying here there is a Japanese restaurant across the street which was quite good.

Quality and Style

Would recommend Sun, Jan 8, 2012
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.

Time saver

Go to Goodge Street for easiest pedestrian access to the hotel.

great hotel in a great location

Would recommend Thu, Dec 1, 2011
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
