This hotel has a wonderful location. There's a bus stop right in front of the hotel going to any touristy place you could want to go. Covent Garden is behind the hotel with many, many eateries. On the corner there's a Tesco convenience store to buy snacks, drinks, etc. The worst part were the beds. I like a firm bed, but these were beyond firm and were rock hard. The bathroom was weird, too. The drain didn't work well, so you had to take a super fast shower before the water could run over the top. There was no hook on the door to hang your toiletry bags. There were no shelves or storage space to keep things around the sink. There was a plug by the sink, but the sign said you could only plug shavers into the socket. The bathtub was about 2 inches taller than I'm used to at home, making it tough to get into the shower. Last but not least, as another reviewer had said, they don't automatically supply washcloths, but they will bring you some if you request them. Every member of staff was nice and helpful, particularly when we left and needed help with our luggage and getting a cab. Breakfast was well run for the most part. We never waited more than 5-10 minutes to be seated.
