Stayed in the overflow hotel just up the street on the corner of Old Holborn. i was a bit concerned initially but it was fine - and the main hotel had lots of steps to the main entrance which would have been a nusiance. My double room looked exactly as it did in the ads. The bedding was clean and, if anything, the pillows were too plump (which seems an unfair criticism). The hotel was quiet (for London) - just the odd noise of the firedoors closing but I would always take earplugs for a City break anyway. Near the lift but no problem with noise as there was an extra interior door. My room was long rather than wide so the TV was maybe a little far from the bed but it was still visible and the remote worked. Bath and shower in room, both clean. Towels exchanged daily if left in bath for swapping. Handwash and showerwash in wall containers.
The breakfast was fine - a decent range of fruit, cereal, toast, croissant, and the usual Full English (sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs etc). Maybe just one or two small niceties missing - couldn't find any side plates one day; no teaspoons on the other.
The hotel bar prices are just normal; cheaper than some of the local pubs.
We had an evening meal one night because the whole area gets so busy, it is difficult to get into a restaurant on an evening. We had a perfectly decent meal - lasagna and curry are obviously microwaved but, then again, they often are in pubs anyway. It was decent value: two courses and a glass of wine for £12.99 I seem to recall.
This hotel really is in the heart of London. British Museum is just at the end of Museum Street off Drury Lane. You can walk up to Bloomsbury Square, Russell Square and Gordon Square within 25 mins if you want to sit in the gardens and go round looking at the blue plaques to see the homes of past, famous residents. St James Park and Horseguards Parade was within 30 mins walk - Buckingham Palace just another five beyond that. You pass Leicester Square and China Town on the way. Alternatively, you can turn off for Trafalgar Square. All within 30 mins walking.
I would certainly stay there again.
