Booked a " Double Superior Room" at £337 for 2 nights . Allocated one on the 3rd floor overlooking the street. The double superior room was very small. In my opinion it was very old fashioned and dated. I found the bed to be uncomfortable and the pillows floppy and of poor quality. There was just about enough space to move past the foot of the bed to get to the bathroom or door. I had to keep the bathroom light on all night so as not to hit and injure myself on the piece of shelf jutting out from above the fireplace which wouldn't be seen in the dark. Overall the room was clean enough but definitely needs a refurbishment and update. The shower and bath was accessible only by stepping over a very high siding. There was no air conditioning and we were absolutely sweltered even with the window wide open all night! There was a table top fan available but even when switched on to capacity it made little difference. I know it was high temperatures outside but there can be no justification for making people suffer these conditions. It felt like it was over 30 degrees. Even our chocolate bar which had been in our suitcase melted completely. To top it all the lift was out of order one of the days. The hotel is in a nice convenient location but not in my opinion, value for money. The continental breakfast was quite basic but the service at breakfast was good. We inadvertently left a charger in the room and contacted the hotel to ascertain if they would return it to us. This is their response "Should you wish for us to send it to you, please fax, or use the secure link below to send us a short description of the lost property items, a full postage address and your full credit card details with a note authorising us to charge your credit card for both postage cost and 20% service charge. If using the link, kindly put Lost Property in the Reference Number section. Please note there is a minimum charge of £5.00 for all credit card transactions". Well .... I think it might be cheaper to buy a new one! I was very disappointed in my overall experience here.
We stayed on a night when it had gotten close to 90 degrees F. in London and it was unbearably hot in our tiny room. The staff was very responsive, helpful and polite and did bring us an extra fan upon request, but without air conditioning, this was probably the most miserable hotel experience I've ever had. The continental breakfast was nice, and if we'd stayed here during normal London weather, it might have been fine -- although the room was very small, pretty much a queen-sized bed and little room to do anything else but sleep.
Stayed in this hotel as was going to Peacock Theatre to see a show. The theatre was a 10 min walk away. Holborn and Russell Square tube stations are 5 min walk away in opposite directions. Covent Garden was a 12 min walk away and the British Museum was round the corner. It also took me about 15 minutes to walk to St Pancras for my journey home. So hotel is ideally located for theatreland. Luckily I stayed in the lower ground floor which was cool in this hot weather. The room was large with 2 large double beds and ensuite. I've stayed in a few places in London and this was good value for money. Staff were friendly. I didn't try any other amenities but the wifi was good.
Please don't waste your money! This place should be shut down and start again! - awarded a free upgrade. I dread to think what a normal room was like! - roasting hot it's ridiculous - run down and out of date - excessive amount of breakfast staff who predictably don't understand english and completely useless. - continental breakfast very limited and stale to which I am reporting to food hygiene agency. As you can tell apart from the location this place is awful!
Stayed here on business last night and was really surprised. I hate that sinking feeling when you are told you are 'lower ground floor' aka basement....but given I had a complimentary upgrade to exec twin my fears went the second I enetered the room. Huge room....seriously large for a London hotel, lots of space, great desk space and seating area and a great bathroom and have to say it was spotlessly clean. Everything in the room worked and the peace and quiet was astonishing...it was as if I were out of the city, really remarkable. A very peaceful location and yet 15 minute walk to soho and next to the British Museum, amazing. I'd stay again.
every hotel in London is expensive. With that in mind, this hotel offers good value for money. Rooms are rather large and furnished in style, staff is extremely polite and friendly, wifi is fast and reliable, bathroom also large and with bathtub, bed matress of good quality, our window on to a park so very quiet. Breakfast is reasonably fresh and varied and included in the room, breakfast staff could be friendlier but that's the only detail that could be improved.
Far from the best stay I've enjoyed whilst stopping over on business in London. Pro's: Good location Con's: Poor facilities in room. No A/C, rubbish TV. In need of refurb Poor food, bland breakfasts and evening meals only served across the road in sister hotel. Service fairly average. Small rooms Not on my preferred list.
As always a good stay, but it was so warm in the rooms. Don't know how the company would address this but something rather than the tiny fan would make the stay better. Nothin too much trouble for the concierge or reception staff. I did try the room service it was ok and the burger I had did represent good value and it was hot. Breakfast is also part of our bookings and again can't fault the waitresses nothing too much trouble only grumble is it's not Heinz beans at breakfast but everything else was good. Good stay as always.
Great little hotel in a quiet street near the museum. Handy for numerous stations and close to Attractions. Excellent service and checkin, and a good size room. Problem was there is no ventilation in the room, widows do open but as it was ground floor that's not an option. Very stuffy and uncomfortable sleep . Lack of air con would make this pretty unbearable on shot night. Other than that a good option
We were staying here due to going to the Lion King that night and didn't want to catch a late train home. My partner booked it and it looked nice. The room was very large, had a tv and nice bathroom. The bedroom itself could do with modernising. The bed was really comfy and our room was quiet. Plus we got an upgrade! I would stay here again.
