If I’m being perfectly honest I found this hotel a little bit bonkers! I booked one of their ‘post supper rooms’ on Laterooms on the very last minute at a lower price than is usually charged and I use Tripadvisor a lot so only think it is right to give an honest account myself. I’ll separate my review into both positives and negatives. First with the positives:
+ Perfect location for Leicester Square and Tube station and sight seeing; surrounded by lots of restaurants; lovely bed with good quality bed linen; rooms bright and airy; good quality toiletries.
Now for the negatives!
- No tea and coffee making facilities; no iron or ironing board; slow wi-fi; no desk space (only a small round table which serves as a desk and area for your personal effects; to close the blind on the clear glass window in the shower which looks out directly on to the busy street, I had to actually clamber into the bath. I have uploaded a photo so you can get an idea of what I mean.
I really do feel that in concentrating on the quirky they have forgotten the basics in this hotel and had they have included of these they would have quite lovely rooms. So maybe instead of making sure that the mini bar is stocked with Bollinger or that an umbrella is strategically placed on the wall a nice complimentary tea/coffee tray would be good or even an iron and ironing board!
This is definitely not a business hotel but that is probably my fault for not checking this before booking. When travelling for business, in the morning I like to have coffee and do some work before I head off out for the day but here I was up and out and camped in the nearest Starbucks by 7.30 a.m. Also if you was staying here with a friend you would probably end up either sitting in the toilet or leaving the room whilst each other showered as the bath/shower/sink is literally in the bedroom with a clear glass shower screen! I honestly felt like I was sleeping in a bathroom with a bed in it. Really sorry guys I don’t think I would stay here again.
