“Less than bare essentials!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

A single tiny room without air conditioning but clean and with two teabags and two of coffee constituting the only luxury but the location is good for The British Museum. Take your own soap and shampoo and earplugs if you want to keep the window open. Wireless is incredibly expensive but a Cafe Nero is nearby on Tottenham Court Road for a free connection and good coffee.

Room Tip: Not on Tottenham Court Road side

The hotel was nice. The rooms were very tiny. My single room was smaller then a college dorm room. However, the location of the hotel greatly made up for the size of the room. The hotel is near soho shopping, many restaurants, the british museum is right around the corner, and transportation is within walking distance.

I checked in to the hotel and was pleasantly surprised. The room was a generous size although very noisy. The air con didn't work and it was 28 degrees outside! The restaurant was nice but overpriced. When I was in bed I was awoken by a noise, I put on the light, looked beside me and there was a large black rat. I screamed and ran down to reception. I was on the sixth floor, how did a rat get up there?! They moved me to another room but refused to give me a refund initially. I felt stupid and cheap by having to beg for a refund! I got no sleep and the attitude of the staff was disgusting. I've cancelled my next two stays that I had already booked for future business trips. Will never stay agin. Absolutely vile

Just stayed for two nights in this central London hotel - very pleasantly surprised as many reviews are not particularly positive. Can honestly say that this was a super. Value for money experience. It is extremely reasonably priced - a factor that I suspect is often overlooked when posting. This is a price-friendly hotel the centre of London and within walking distance of The British Museum, Covent Garden and theatre land! On arrival we were offered executive room upgrades and the check in clerk did a good job of putting our party together in facing whilst upgrading. The upgrade included an upgrade to our breakfast which was included in the price - a decent cooked breakfast in the restaurant downstairs where the staff were really friendly and courteous - no request was too much trouble. The rooms did have air con and spacious showers etc - they were clean and comfortable - not huge but again - this is prime hotel space in a capital city! Would definitely stop again.

Room Tip: The roof top rooms seem to currently being refurbished - lot of building work going on up there but...

The rooms in this hotel were so small, I was there for a night and it was a warm day in London, but the room was so hot there was no air conditioning but a fan and with the heat of the room it didn't work well. There was an ironing room which was handy, reason for this was could never fit an Ironing board in the room. In the bathroom the only toiletries was a soap stuck to the wall in the shower which didn't work so I was unable to use it.
Hotel is in a fantastic location but I dont think its worth £100 a night.

Booked his hotel because of the location we have stayed there before it is very close to a lot of attractions and the tube station is around the corner. Basic hotel, charges for wifi rooms very small and very hot we could not have the window open at night due to the street noise had to put the fan on.

Room Tip: not the street side as it is very noisey
