This hotel is excellent for what they charge it is a bit dated but it's clean and close to the shows continental breakfast is ok we normally book on the day and pay around £100 for a room we have tried a few hotels around for similar prices and there not as nice yes you can pay £200 upwards for a really nice hotel or below £100 for rubbish we wanted go on a regular basis and this hotel fits the bill a genuine hotel and breakfast for around £100 within walking distance of many london shows roll on the next time
Very good location. Very close to the British museum and Oxford Street/Tottenham Court road, all walkable in a couple of minutes. I think the hotel was full as I was upgraded to a deluxe double room. Room was large, clean and well appointed. Carpet had seen better days, but with the usage it gets, not a complaint. The staff were efficient and friendly. Bed very comfortable and liked the blackout curtains, very effective. Basic continental breakfast was included and was fine. If you can book at a good price then I would recommend it due to the location.
Nice hotel however lots of stairs, no lift that could be seen or offered. Anyway healthy jolt of exercise! Breakfast very good, mattress had seen better days but ok. Staff friendly, trouble free stay and well located to all the London landmarks
Could not fault hotel. Clean throughout. Complementary tea/coffee facilities in room, also bottled water. Staff very helpful. A good base in quiet part of London but close enough to walk to landmarks.
This hotel is a great location to be based for the eastern side of the west end. 10 minute cab to leicester squ and a few restaurants around. Room was great and very comfy if a little warm. Clean. Staff very courteous and professional, if a little impersonal. Great price booked late, for central London.
We stayed for one night as it was only a 10 minute or so walk from Covent Garden. The hotel is a few minutes walk from Russell Square station (note there are about 170 steps to climb at the station so Holborn might be easier!) We were upgraded to a superior double and the lady on reception was very friendly. Room was really spacious with good facilities overlooking the street. The only downsides were the noise that came from the street below - I got woken up several times throughout the night with dustbin trucks and various other noises from outside and the corridor right behind our heads. We wanted to make a quick cup of tea and coffee before we checked out but it had not been replenished from the previous people - no breakfast tea and only two milk pots. We didn't have time to fiddle around and ask reception as we were against the clock so this was a bit annoying but overall a good stay and we would stay again.
This hotel is well located on a quiet street in the attractive Bloomsbury area. Rooms are spacious. However, the standard of fittings and basic maintenance leave a lot to be desired considering the prices charged, and certainly fall below our experience of 4-star establishments. Perhaps we were unlucky, but in our room the bath tap was faulty (unable to obtain hot bath), the shower erratic, shower screen broken, the TV cut out for no apparent reason, and the room, though clean, had rather faded décor, plenty of scuff marks on walls and skirting boards, threadbare carpeting and a badly dented grill over radiator. Having written to the hotel's guest relations manager to point out these deficiencies, we received a polite e-mail in response apologising for our experiences and saying our comments would be passed on to the relevant personnel for investigation and monitoring purposes.
Stayed here for one night, very disappointed with the room for a hotel of such high rating! Massive holes in curtains, marks all over the wallpaper where people had clearly tried to get through the very small gap between bed and wall, wallpaper peeling back and very uncomfortable bed that squeaked every time you turned over! Location was the only plus side for us. Overall not impressed.
The Claredon is one of five Grange hotels that were converted from a row of terrace houses originally built in 1815, and the architecture retains its splendid Georgian façade. Located in Bloomsbury, the hotel is short walk from the British Museum and the Domination Theatre, and within the same tube zone for Soho and a number of other theatres. Our room was clean, a good size, and complete with all the basics (TV, hair-dryer, safe, wifi, kettle for tea and coffee), however the wallpaper was coming loose in some places. The bed was a full-double, but the mattress was too hard to be comfortable. Although we were on the third floor at the end of the passage, there was still a bit of ambient noise that filtered into the room. The shower had good pressure, and plenty of hot water. The staff were exceptionally friendly, always welcoming and anxious to assist. We didn't eat at the hotel. In all, it was a very pleasant stay.
Can not rate this hotel highly enough. We arrived at night seeking alternative accomodation because we were so unhappy with the hotel we had booked. They were so accommodating and friendly, taking us with no worries at all. We were impressed with the price too. While not a big room, it was clean and nice. There was a safe provided to lock up valuables and, importantly, the wifi worked great. Breakfast was nice too. The staff were lovely the whole time, always professional, greeting guests and ready to help. Our London trip started horribly but worked out great thanks to our change in accommodation.
