Booked in for one night while taking my partner to see a show in the West End. Strolling from the hotel to the theatre took 10 minutes, and was all part of the fun. Soho, Covent Garden, Leicester Sq.... All walking distance in 10 minutes or so. Room was big, really big and the bed massive. Crisp, clean sheets and a decent bathroom with all the nice touches you'd expect. Free wifi, but that's pretty standard these days. Still a nice touch though. The hotel is just off the main strip, tucked away down a side road of Georgian splendour. Our room's window overlooked a private garden and square, which was pedestrianised. Unnaturally quiet for the city centre, but much appreciated. We didn't bother with breakfast, we thought £23 pp was a bit steep, and you have to go to a different hotel next door for it. The decor and furnishings are quite old fashioned, which I like, but the room had that odour that hits you when you open the drawer of an old fashioned piece of furniture. That, I didn't like. We were only staying one night and using it for somewhere to crash after a night out, so didn't see much of the staff. They were polite and friendly though. Over all, exceptional value for the location, size of room and cleanliness. Would recommend and return.
Having travelled early in the day for buisness and meeting my partner later for dinner and a night away. She was able to park outside the hotel easily, I did have to move by 10:30am. A nice clean spacious room, comfy bed and good facilities. Great value for the money. Easy to walk to shows, Covent Garden, museums and local bars and resturaunts, ideal for our stay. Staff friendly and accomadating.
The room was VERY spacious-felt like a one bedroom apartment. Breakfast was down the street, but now far at all. It was good although exactly the same each day. The staff was friendly for the most part. There was construction outside our windows-so we woke up each morning to men staring in. Overall, would recommend this hotel.
Just off Russel Square (ample parking in the center of London! Not cheap, though), within walking distance of major shopping and London's famous theaters, a boutique hotel. The rooms are small but delightfully, tastefully furnished and equipped with a kitchenette (including fridge), large bath towels (paper thin like at most hotels). Two caveats: the chair is too low for the desk, and I would not stay there in the summer -- there is no airconditioning.
Need to stay in close proximity to GOSH. Quiet hotel, large rooms, clean and cozy; not air conditioned though. So during those hot and humid July days may not be the best choice. The location is very convenient, with in reach to the British museum as well as soho. No far from shopping areas either. It's a part of a chain of hotels, one is next doors where you can have your meal.
Spread over the entire street (Bedford) you have to go to different hotels for your meals and when you call the front office you dont necessarily get your front desk. I wanted ice and had to go down after half an hour because the call went elsewhere and the message was not communicated to my front desk. Quite annoying. When I went down the front desk chap was not at the desk and did not see the message.
I have stayed here before. It is close to where I needed to do some teaching. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room I had was clean. My principal complaint relates to the awful cold coffee. A colleague thought the tea was disgusting.
One of a chain of hotels branded as luxury hotels. Price can be a bit high, rooms are well furnished and Executive rooms are large with small kitchenette( sink, microwave and fridge). Whilst prices may be a little high, a continental breakfast is included and free wifi. Staff seem Ro gave been well trained and are polite and will try to be as helpful as possible. Unfortunately, some down sides: All Executive rooms face the main road and either due to conservation laws or the hotel nor spending money, the windows are single glazed and old so let all the street noise in and the odd bus goes down past the hotel, so if you are a light sleeper avoid the rooms at the front. I had the misfortune of being given a lower ground floor front facing room, later changed to a second floor front facing room, which was noisy and I had to wear ear plugs all night on both nights. The hotels also have no air conditioning, so on hot days can be uncomfortable, although fans are provided. My verdict, avoid the front facing rooms if you like peace and quiet.
One of a series of small Grange hotels in a perfect central location in Bloomsbury close to the British Museum and within walking distance of Covent Garden, Soho, and many other attractions. The rooms are very spacious with a little corner for coffee and a microwave for a light dinner.. A very nice Continental breakfast included in the rates. Staff is very helpful. Recommended if you don't need the huge lobbies in the large hotels.
We stayed here for 2 nights in early April. Rooms very spacious and a very good bathroom. The hotel is 5 min walk from British Museum and the street is very quiet. All staff we had contact with was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was at the nearby hotel Clarendon, and this was a basic and ok continental type. This was included in our rate, and we did not bother to pay the extra pounds for a full english. I have stayed several times in this area, and the location is very good. Walking distance to teaters, shopping and restaurants. If you come from Heathrow it is 5-6 minutes walking from both Holborn and Russell Square staions on Piccadilly Line. The hotel has no bar or restaurant! Very nica with a small kitchen on the room with fridge. Don't think room had any air condition. I will consider using this or one of the other Grange Hotels for my next visit in London.
