We recently stayed at The Strand Palace in late July 2010.We had to book somewhere to stay last minute.We made a reservation,and caught the train from Bath to Paddington.Easy tube from Paddington,take the northern line to Charing Cross.Found the hotel easy,went to check in to find our reservation had'nt actually been taken!The staff though were excellent in finding us another room at short notice.We paid £160 for the night.We were quite surprised to find the room was very small,I guess for the price we were expecting it to be more spacious!However this hotel is in a fantastic location,and most of the londlon attractions are within easy walking distance.The room was very clean,and had a nice bathroom.The bed was very comfortable,although as our room was facing the road,the windows had no double glazing so was fairly noisy during the night.We popped into the Mask Bar(within the hotel)for a quick drink,and was horrified to be charged nearly £20 for 2 drinks!!!Much cheaper elsewhere!The breakfast was really nice,plenty of everything,with excellent service.The staff in all were fantastic and friendly.On leaving for Paddington to get the train home we caught the Number 15 bus,£2 each single fare which dropped us right outside the train station.Great trip too through Regent Street,Picadilly circus,Oxford Street ect.In all a great stay and we would probably consider staying in this hotel again.
