We stayed her for our honeymoon and I was very excited especially when we arrived in the palacial reception area, our room however was laughable! It was very small and basic, a tight squeeze, lucky we were on honeymoon! However, the location was fantastic and I can't fault the service.

Room Tip: Check room sizes if you're fussy.

Stayed here for one night as part of a show and stay deal. Had a single room. Ok it was small, but what more do you need, a comfy bed, pillow, really decent hairdryer, hot shower, working tv and decent sized kettle. Breakfast choice great, continental and full english, strong coffee. Had a lovely glass of wine after seeing the fabulous Mamma Mia and evening meal at The Ivy (see a woman who has taste) so therefore no complaints. Great walking distance to theatreland, great friendly staff. Perhaps you get treated how you treat others, witnessed appalling manners towards the hard working staff, myself and my friend would happily return, thanks guys :-)

Room Tip: We were on the third floor, hardly heard any noise

The hotel's greatest asset is its location. A minute or so away from Tottenham Court Road tube station, close to Theatreland and Tottenham Court Road for all you techies! (Hope I've spelt that correctly but you probably know whom I mean!) It is in need of refurbishment and certainly needs new lifts. We must have spent a lot of time waiting for the small lifts to arrive and considering there are supposed to be 700 rooms, the lift space is disproportionate. Our rooms were small and the shower very small. Generally clean and the staff we met were very friendly (providing they could understand English) Food was nothing to write home about and the downstairs restaurant (VQ I think it was called) was disappointing. Open to the public from the road it was too busy for breakfast. We would certainly stay there again but eat elsewhere and hope that the rooms were on the first or second floor so we didn't have to use the lift.

Room Tip: There was no air conditioning in the room which was on the side of the hotel so it would probably be...

So i checked in and the room is supposed to be newly furnished. If 80s furniture is new, i don't know. The tv is new & the mattresses at least and the bathrooms are new.
I changed almost twice my room, because the first room they gave me, the wc was filthy. The second room, the bed covers seemed to have vommit on it. I was so gross out. The manager and generally the people who work there are helpful, but the facilities are not worth the money.
The location was ideal, pick another hotel near this one.

This is our second time staying in this hotel. The rooms are very small but this time we upgraded to deluxe and for the small difference in price we had an extra seating area which made so much difference. The hotel is very clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. It was very busy but we managed to find room in the restaurants and bar. Food and drink average but lots of choice and open all day so ideal to eat before going to the theatres which ate all in easy reach. This place is so convenient to the underground, buses, shops, sightseeing and theatres. An ideal choice for a couple of nights in the city. Thanks to the staff for helping us to enjoy our stay. Will definitely be back.

I stayed here over the long weekend holidays (Easter). Despite being busy, the hotel was great and though it was small compare to many other hotels in Europe, I must say that what matters me the most was it is in a perfect location. You never lost and nearby is shops, cafes, Tube and yes great staff. However, the room amenities need some improvement. I be back
