“Very Good location - large tourist hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Great location, right on top of London theatres, 2 minutes from Trafalgar square, shopping, etc. Rooms are small, basic, and functional. TV system seemed pretty old. Service was very courteous. Not enough elevators, so there was often a wait. On previous business visits I stayed at the fancier Mayfair on Grosvenor Square but would come here again as the location is much better.

Location perfect. Could walk to many places and the hop on hop off bus was right near by. Trafalgar Square near by, great restaurants near by, theaters nearby. The breakfast very nice. Rooms were extremely small! Bed and a desk and a small closet. Bathroom small but nice. Many new free magazines and newspapers in the lobby every day! Loved that. staff friendly mostly. WE did receive a confusing coupon and thought we had 15 pounds to spend in the bar. But really it was for a future visit!!! ugh.

Room Tip: If you want to spend more money you can upgrade to a bigger room. we were not in our room much, onl...

The rooms are small and basic, but they do the job and are clean & functional. The location, opposite The Savoy, is brilliant and gives you London on your doorstep.

Don't come here expecting pampering and luxury, but do if you want good value in a great locale.

Indian restaurant downstairs was pretty good too.

On a recent three day stay at this hotel we were very impressed with the way we were looked after throughout our stay. Although the room was on the small side it was adequate for our visit. Cleanliness throughout was very good and the self service breakfast was also very good.

I expected so much more from this hotel from the reviews I read . The location is great but I feel like I'm in holiday tour /cabin style accommodation. The hotel rooms are small like shoeboxes and hardly fit two luggage. The walls are papery thin and you can't get a good night sleep and the staff have no time for you as there are so many people coming in and out of the hotel. A big disappointing start to our holiday, especially after travelling 24 hours to get here.

Very nice service, great breakfast and located conviniently next to Covent Garden and walking distance to Picadilly, Leicester and Trafalgar Square. Rooms and bed are quite small, but much better than they appear at first glance. I would return any time.
