This is a lovely hotel - it has a lot of character so while the decor is modern it sympathetically incorporates the (late) Victorian style. We stayed on a Sunday night which afforded a very good deal. The hotel is ideally sited for British Museum and Seven Dials/Covent Garden, which is what interested us.
The hotel staff were very attentive, polite and welcoming. A nice touch for me was that while my husband was completing check-in another receptionist went over and called the lifts so they would be there ready for us. After checking out, I found I had left something in my room. The hotel located the item and handed it over in minutes.
The room was smartly decorated, with plenty of storage, tea/coffee facilities, TV and usual, including an ironing board, which always puts my husband at ease (not that he does much ironing!). Our bathroom had a rainfall shower head which was lovely to use. We had no view really - mostly we looked out onto a brick wall, but you know, it didn't matter. I would be very happy to come back to this hotel again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Following a recent extensive £10 million restoration and refurbishment program at the hotel, every area of the hotel has been transformed – our bedrooms have been completely modernised with a contemporary design and vibrant soft furnishings. Our public areas reflect the new contemporary style but retain elements of the hotel’s traditional Edwardian features. London landmarks like the British Museum and Covent Garden and Oxford Street are within easy walking distance. Just five minutes from Holborn and Tottenham Court Road Tube Stations. ... more less
