Stayed in the hotel for 2 night in Executive room. The room was small but comfortable. Had all the necessary things such as kettle, safe box, bathrobe, slippers and Ipad/Iphone charger.
But!!! Take earplugs as you hear everything that happens around your room.
The location of the hotel is key. Savoy hotel is just in front, with all restaurants and lounges available! Right behind the corner is Coven Garden which is definitely an entertainment hub! There are also a lot of dinning options around.
I will not recommend to take breakfast in the hotel, as it is very basic and there is too crowded. You can find cheaper options near the hotel.
The hotel is very loaded and there are too many people, so the staff is not very attentive and friendly. Most of the time they just do not care .. On Saturday evening it is very hard to catch the taxi near hotel. When we asked to call for a taxi, the lady on reception gave us a phone number on a piece of paper, pointed somewhere and said: Go there and order a taxi by yourself. The operator on the phone was even more rude (plus she asked the room number in order to charge us for the call...).
I can't say that I enjoyed my stay, but location is very convenient, so it is ok for 1-2 days stay.
