Four of us stayed at this hotel the night before a show in London. It is just off Oxford Street so great location but very quiet. We got a great deal and the room we had was so spacious, luxorious and clean. Plenty of room to lounge around and enjoy the facilities. Breakfast was relaxed and delicious in a large drawing room with fire. very cosy and welcoming and no hurry to leave. We stayed i n there till gone 11.30 no problem. We would definitely stay here again and try to get a bargain deal as I think the full rate would be a bit pricey. Thanks

we were 6 adults, while searching for hotels someone told me about the Leonard hotel, i googled it and found that the location was very convenient for everyone, so i decided to do the booking by phone, the sales guy was very friendly and he made sure that everything is arranged before we arrive, we arrived early in the morning the room wasn't ready by then but the reception guy offered another temp room for the older ladies to stay in till the other room is ready.
My Mother asked for arabic channels concierge arranged for that and was fixed same day!
Rooms were very clean, friendly staff, great service, excellent location, perfect stay for families, will always be my choice and will always recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask if the rooms are on the same floor of the lift some rooms are not, for more than 3 members alway...

Recently stayed at The Leonard after an almost 8 year absence. The staff are still fantasic- warm and welcoming. Th public areas are seriously comfortable albiet a little tatty round the edges but it really doesn't matter. Rather like a great aunt's living room- warm, welcoming and reassuring cluttered! The rooms are a mixed bag when it comes to size no matter what category you choose and there is no doubt it's time for a room refurb. However, the rooms are comnfortable and clean and. everything works just the way it should. The hotel's location is perfect- 5 minutes walk to Oxford Street/Marble Arch. And the english breakfast is one of the best in London! The Leonard isn't the Ritz but it is a charming small hotel that offers exceptional value for money and delivers a delightful London hotel expereince- something that is often not the case.

Room Tip: The deluxe double room category and higher is the way to go.

The staff are lovely. This was our second stay, and the public areas are a little tired like a well worn boot. But like a well worn boot it was comfortable and familiar. Staff were great, from the chambermaid checking we had all we needed after just checking in. The restaurant, bar and reception staff were also good and helpful. Great location only a stones throw from Oxford Street....and the food particularly the breakfasts, freshly prepared are great, and served at the table rather than the usual dried out selection under hot lamps, help yourself offerings by so many other expensive London hotels.

Stayed: December 2012

We staid in The Leonard for three nights on a citrytrip to London. We booked a larger room than the average ones, for the size of the beds (we are both tall persons).

The room itself was ok, it was normal large, equipped with a (free) coffee/tea maker and good cookies. The bed had enough space, too bad it actually were two single beds set together and not one king size bed, as mentioned in the hotel accomodation on booking.com. If you cuddle at night, one of the two is always in the hard gap in the middle. There was a master chair with tabel, a normal chair, a closet, and a small desk to put and store all our luggage. The bed was medium soft and we had three (very!) hard pillows and one soft pillow.

When we checked in the room wasn't ready yet (we arrived at 11 am), but they could store our bagage untill the room was ready. Too bad the housekeeper left a little too much of herself in the room. There was a whole cloth of thick black hair in the bathing tub when we arrived, and next to the sink was a card that said "shower time", with a very long thick hair hanging over it. Yummy! It made me feel sick about the whole bathroom immediately. Hairs are a no-go in a 4-star
hotel.The bathroom itself was spacious enough, and the toilet was in the bathroom. I like to keep those things apart, but you can't have it all I guess.

There was a fireplace in the room itself, too bad there was no possibility to lighten it, or nobody at the reception mentioned the possibility of that, although it would have been a super nice extra.

Another anoying thing about the hotel was that TWO times, we were resting in our room around 6 pm before going to dinner, there was a hard knock on the door "house keeping!!!!!". The room was already cleaned by that time and both times we were undressed so we didn't open the door (and it was locked as well so they couldn't open themselves). I'm still wondering why the housekeeping wants to be in your room at 6.30 pm in the evening...

We had breakfast in the hotel once. It was fine, but the juice wasn't freshly squeezed, which I think is a must for the price of the breakfast. The staff couldn't be fast enough to take our plates as soon as one of us laid down it's knife and fork. I actually wasn't finished yet, but they didn't seem to bother.

The location on the other hand, was perfect. Marble Arch metro is super close, and it's a 5 minute walk from oxford street and some nice restaurant areas. The hotel is situated in a nice part of London city.

Overall, the hotel was good - comparing the prices with other hotels in the neighbourhood, but because of the non-cleaniness in the bathroom I wouldn't go there again.

The Leonard offers central accommodation, nice ambiance, friendly service and good food. Walk to Mayfair is 5 min and 1min to Marble Arch tube station. Because it is essentially four townhouses joint up rooms can be variable and quirky, something one finds in many London Hotels. Often they will be on the small side with an odd lay-out and bathrooms are tiny. Nevertheless, appliances and bathroom products (Elemis) are excellent and I enjoyed my stay overall.

For the price and quality of the bed you should seek something for half the price. What you pay for is the location. Sadly, because a bed is important to me and the quality of the matress was beyond AWFUL, I can't recommend this place. It's also annoying you have to pay extra for wifi. The staff was nice, but I wouldn't say knowledgeable. My room was next to elevator and you could here the clicking and pulling the chains. Disappointing

Room Tip: Make sure it is not next to the elevator
