“Great place to stay in London”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

My husband and I stayed here for a week around Easter weekend and couldn't have been happier with the room and service. Clean, central, quiet, comfortable and generally a great place to come back to after a long day of site seeing.

The staff were friendly, helpful, and truly made us feel at home even giving away chocolates for all on Easter Saturday. I can't say enough wonderful things about this place and would HIGHLY recommend staying here.

Had a couple of nights here as a birthday present for my partner. Service was first class, the breakfast fresh and plenty with a lot of choice.
Centrally located in easy walking of Covent Garden etc.
We had a Junior Suit (how the other half live) after mailing with the excellent helpfull operations manager Aygul.
Will probably repeat this trip again, happy memories!

The rooms are spacious and clean, the staff is very helpful, the breakfast is great, the hôtel is close to everything : the British Museum, Covent Garden and Oxford and Regent streets. It is a perfect place !

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are more quiet.

Great location, fabulous service, clean comfortable rooms. Thoroughly recommended. Breakfasts plentiful and varied. Hotel tastefully decorated throughout. The breakfast voucher thing is a bit of a faff bat not really a problem.

Room Tip: Check the floor space, some of the smaller rooms are a bit tight for a couple.

Pros: impeccable service with a smile and spacious spotless very comfortable rooms. Not as well equipped than other similar hotels (for example no iPod dock) but the superb bathroom made up for that.
Cons: room overlooking front very noisy. Breakfast did not live up to the standard of the rest of the hotel- terrible fatty bacon!
We ate at the restaurant which was nice, good value tasty food with again the best service you could ask for.

I would like to take this opportunity to advice you our Junior Suites are equipped with the iPod docking stations, along with larger area, extra amenities, seating area; may I recommend you to upgrade yourself to Junior Suite on your next visit.
The breakfast spread generally earns lots of positive reviews, I am sorry to learn it did not meet your expectations; I shall pass your feedback to our head chef.
Also accept my apologies that the room provided was noisy for you. On your next visit may I recommend to request for the middle section, higher level or rooms at the back of the hotel which are very quite.

Stayed here at the start of March and it was the second time.
It was good first time and probably even better second time.
Friendly staff welcome you to a clean, good sized room. Breakfast is great. Bar is trendy and typical London prices.
Convenient for Covent Garden and theatre land - as well as a great base to explore the rest of London.
I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone who wants a good quality hotel at a reasonable price in a convenient location
