great hotel, needs some sound proofing

The location of this hotel is prime. So if you want to be in the heart of London, and not pay an arm and a leg, this is may be a good choice. The hotel is clean, and the staff is generally helpful and polite. The bed was hard, and the pillows left much to be desired. All this was within acceptable limits for the price. My main complaint comes from the lack of soundproofing. It can be quite bothersome if you have a passionate couple next door, or if you plan on some of the same and prefer not to have everyone know. Also make sure to pack a cat5/network cable with you, or be prepared to pay for wireless access. Considering it's 2010, and that your average roadside motel has free wifi, this was also a bit frustrating.

Great location - hard beds - crummy pillows

The individual room I had was lovely, small but more than adequate. Bathroom was perfect. The location is fabulous, just across from the Savoy and near theaters. I wanted walking distance to the British Museum so it had seemed worth the extra money. Unfortunately, I arrived with a terrible head cold and spent my time in bed. Yikes, I couldn't believe how hard the bed was and the pillows were thin and hard as well. Maybe it is American vs British standards, or that I was in an individual room. I ate at Johnson's, one of their restaurants, what a mistake. Overpriced and terrible food - the pan fried mullet was inedible and the 'specialty bread' was greasy with butter. The replacement was marginally better so I gave up. (Or maybe I just forgot how bad English 'cuisine' is - this wasn't my first time). The prepaid breakfast was expensive but excellent (after two sick days I could finally eat). 15.3 pound cab ride from Paddington Station, not the 10 pounds I was told. The cost was not justified for me.

Location for Theatre is Great

It was a great location because I saw a lot of Theatre which for the most part was in walking distance. The restaurant and lounge staff were extremely unfriendly. I had not signed up for the daily breakfast and when I tried to eat there it was like I had committed a sin for not signing up. The bartender at one of the lounges refused to wait on me. The location was subject to sirens.

Good location for theatres

Enormous hotel. Asked for credit card imprints at least three times for a pre-paid room. Service very impersonal. Closest and most convenient tube station, especially with luggage, was Charing Cross although the concierge insisted that we should use the less convenient and crowded Covent Garden Station. Great location for theatres and the opera houses.

Great Location for Theaters

Have been to this hotel many times. Great location just 5 min walk from Trafalgar Square. Rooms are small but clean & neat. Cooked breakfast (included with my rate) was good -- coffee AWFUL! You can get voucher for 30-min of WiFi in lobby from lobby bar.

Most West End theaters 5-10 minute walk. Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Westminister, etc. all within a mile or 2, so also walkable.

Good location

The single room I was given was on the 9th floor and the room had no A/C. With above normal temperatures in London, it was very unpleasant. Otherwise, the hotel was nice and very quiet. Excellent breakfast bar.

It was ok

The hotel room was very clean and nice overall. The electric kettle didn't work nor did the internet. The staff was very unfriendly and wasn't any help with the internet not working and I still was forced to pay for it. Other than the staff at the hotel, the room was clean and it was a place to sleep.

Small rooms - no air - nothing special

Staff was fine. location is good if not very good. My first time to london and I hear all rooms are tiny so I find it difficult to compare. That said, this room did not have any air except for the ability to pry open a very old window to the alley. If we had been on the street it would have been noisey. The lobby guest computers were out of order - which is a pain if you don't have a labtop.
