The hotel is in a good location & very clean. It was more than suitable for my 1 night stay for work. The staff in the hotel were all very friendly & extremely helpful. Breakfast was also of a good quality & the bar area also very nice. Just a couple of things that could be better. More sockets would be helpful as in my room there was 1 spare socket once the TV was plugged in. Another issue I had was with how warm the room was - it’s a shame there was no air conditioning. A fan was provided but I think this would put me off returning in summer.

Clean and comfortable hotel, with friendly and efficient staff who made my wife and feel very welcome throughout our stay. This hotsl is in a good location for both shopping and London theatres. Breakfast was included in our room rate, so I am not sure how it costs but it was good breakfast and no long queue even at peak time.

Nice hotel in central location 2 tubes nearby (Russell Sq & Holburn) room was small, but clean and tidy. We didn't mind as didn't spend much time in the room. It is in a old building so you may hear creaking in the room above you. Staff were generally friendly and helpful, Grigo was very helpful and really made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was great, lots of choice plenty to choose from.

Very warm welcome on arrival, lovely room with all that you need and very cosy and warm. The breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice but most of all, the Outstanding customer service day and night made this a very memorable stay. Thankyou

Hotel was ok and staff were nice. Rooms and decor are a little dated. Breakfast not bad... food from menu poor. The location is excellent for the West End and the City. Not great value for money for rate paid on business but if u can get a room for less than £100 per night on a travel website with breakfast then good value. Would stay there again

I stayed here with a friend during a business trip. The hotel is centrally located in London, in the Bloomsbury area near Holborn. The reception is nice and simple, with a clean modern look, and check in was efficient, but the good things end there I’m afraid. As soon as you start making your way up the stairs, you will immediately realise how old this hotel is, and in dire need of renovations. There is a dark musty smell through the corridors and in the room, the curtains and carpets are tired looking and also have that musty smell. The room was very small and dark, just enough room for a bed, a small wardrobe dropped on the side, and a desk and chair squeezed into a corner. The room had a window which took immense strength to lift up and open. The bathroom was equally compact, with a shower area comprising of a sole shower curtain. The stay also included breakfast, which was pretty average and very limited in choice. A very basic section of cereals, yoghurts, hot breakfast items and some pasties and bread. I definitely won’t be recommending this to anyone, nor will I be returning myself anytime soon.

Booked for an overnight stay in London based on the hotels great central location.It is a 15 minute walk from Euston,10 mins from Drury Lane for a theatre visit.We hopped on the 68 bus right outside to take us into central London for £2..this was £10 in a taxi. Staff were really lovely,so friendly,so polite and very helpful. Our room was on the 5th floor..we booked a standard double be honest the room was compact,the bathroom small but serviceable. Complimentary toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities,iron,ironing board and a safe.Being on the front of the building meant that we did have street noise,the room was incredibly hot and we needed the windows open,however there was a fan available which helped somewhat. Breakfast is an extra £12 each,buffet style but was good value with a nice selection of foods. Overall, a good experience in a great location.

The hotel is located in a very convenient place near tube and British Museum. However, the building is dilapidated and is not fit for the purpose. The windows are not double glazed and you can hear everything from the noisy street. You feel that the window is open. It is nearly IMPOSSIBLE TO SLEEP. Walls are wafer thin and you can hear neighbours from other rooms. Bathroom, carpets, upholstery etc in very poor condition almost dirty. Smelly room from poor cleaning and humid. In conclusion, the only good thing is the location if you are desperate. I won’t be going back.

We traveled to London in the snow and after a short walk from st pancreas,we found our hotel it was clean and tidy in reception where we where booked in on the 7 th floor reached in part lift and stairs view not a lot to see but roof tops room was clean and tidy bathroom a little small but for the time we needed it ok . Free WiFi through out our stay Breakfast was extra but lots of choice with a hot and cold buffet style counter and all you can eat policy

Lovely helpful staff, pleasant at both checkout and checking in. Good selection at breakfast including option of take away hot drink. However rooms were tiny. Clean but supposed to be a twin, but very small.
