Just returned from a five night stay here with a friend. We got a reasonable price online for two single rooms via the hotels own website. We got a better discount due to having rooms with no view ie with scaffolding in front of the window. It was no problem as I didnt go to London to look out the window!! I was in room 111 and there was ALOT of noise from building work next door. Some nights it went on until 10pm and later and started very early in the morning. I didnt get much sleep but it didnt bother me too much. My friend was in room 470. She had a room to the front and also she had traffic noise but it wasnt as bad as the building noise. If your a light sleeper this hotel may not suit. The location is super, 5 minutes from Leicester square, right in covent garden and 5 minutes to two tube stations. It was 15 minutes from Oxford street and loads of bars and restaurants including a gorgeous wagamamas around the corner. The hotel lobby is perhaps a tad faded but the rooms were a very good standard. My single room had a single bed and was small enough but it had everything including a tv with a good amount of channels, a tea/coffee service, bottled water daily, a good room service choice, nice big towels and spotless room. The bathroom was perfectly functional, new, clean spacious, just enough for one person.Breakfast is well worth it. One of the best Ive had with a great buffet choice. There were ques out the door some mornings which was a pain and the staff were a bit sharp on a few occasions with customers. I observed a dark haired lady who I think was a manager snap at guests very rudely a few times. Not acceptable. The check in also was a chore. The eastern european girl who checked us in was perfunctuary and cold. Incidently an english girl checked us out and was lovely. I guess its hit and miss. The door men were unfailingly good humoured and helpful. I have stayed in another hotel in Earls Court (Ive reviewed that also) and the rates were comparable but this hotel was SO much better in terms of location and amenities. I would highly recommend it and will return next time, I dont think I would stay any where else in London now! Its right opposite the Savoy and beside a couple of theatres so will return for a theatre break soon. We didnt eat in the restaurant but the bar is very nice with very good quality food and drinks. Another bonus is the free wi fi. I never had a problem with the connection. Its really so essential nowadays. All in all I was exceptionally impressed with this hotel. Dont hesitate to book.
