I am a little bias because I landed at 4:50am or so and was at the hotel before 6am, and they still let me check-in. That was really nice and made pretty much anything else that happened on the experience very acceptable. However, the rest of the stuff was just as nice and very helpful and friendly.
I was given room 314, which is right above the bar. The gentleman who checked me in said that he was happy to give me a room though it was early, but he would note it for me that if I wanted to change it later to a higher floor, that I could. He was right about the noise, but it was not too bad, but they definitely party hard until about 3:15am, so be aware. I was facing the square too, which was great for people watching during jetlag.
The hotel is near everything, so don't worry about finding something. It's right behind Chinatown, near many 24 hour shops and a few restaurants, and closest to the Leicester Square tube stop.
The room was really well designed; in fact, I quite liked the central bar area which served as the sink and desk. If I were traveling with the wife though, it would have been good to have another stool. The room has a generous safe (with a powerport!) and it has good shower. For GBP34 you can have unlimited internet on up to 3 devices (finally!) and watch any movie you want. Much better than if bought internet and any one item more.
I would highly recommend the hotel, though I would suggest a higher floor, not facing the square, unless you are a strong sleeper or severely jetlagged. But other than that, It's great.
