“Outstanding service, beautiful rooms and fantastic location!”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

Stayed here for a romantic few days in Decemeber. From arrival to departure all the staff were friendly, helpful and personal, sorting out anything we asked for. The room was lovely, we asked for the open plan bathroom/bedroom although it may not be to everyone's taste! Chinatown on your doorstep and a short walk from Piccadilly and lots of the main theatres. Breakfast was lovely and so were the cocktails in the bar - although book if you want to get a table there on a weekend evening.

The only negative was the slight noise made by the fan next door; we were told this on arrival and also that it was being looked into,it didn't affect us very much anyway! Will definitely look to stay here again.

Firstly the positives , Hubby booked this as a surprise night away , amazing location especially this time of year . Polite staff on arrival , clean quirky room and comfy bed . Slightly surprised by bath openly next to bed but as a married couple that wasn't an issue !

Negatives , no hot drink making facility just an over stocked over priced mini bar . Our window was over a very noisy kitchen extracter fan that was extremely loud even with window shut . Phoned down to be told that it was the building next door and they would see what they could do , they never contacted us back or answered phone when we re rang . It eventually got turned off after midnight and came back on ... Loudly .. At 5am !!!

Breakfast was rather chaotic taking over 25 minutes from ordering for porridge to arrive and a further 5 to get the fruit that was meant to be with it , that turned out to be 6 2cm squared pieces of pear between two of us ! The rest took just as long to arrive .

On booking out we re addressed the noisy extractor fan issue to be told contact the local council ! Thanks

Fantastic location in Chinatown & only 5 minutes walk from theatreland. The room was a nice size and loved the bath in the bedroom! Staff really friendly & the breakfast was excellent; the porridge was very tasty & as for the tomatoes on toast - superb! Will definitely be back.

We chose the hotel due to its relatively close proximity to Soho where we were dining in the evening. Located on the boundary of Chinatown and very close to Leicester Square, food and entertainment choices are many and varied. The hotel's restaurant is Michelin rated.

Rooms are compact but well equipped. Sleep quality is excellent. The highlight of our stay was the superb and very tasty breakfast. Serving staff were friendly and helpful and the freshness/quality of the food served made our start to the day a memorable one.

Fantastic location right in the middle of Leicester square and off china town, friendlyand quick service at reception, they had our request for early check in which was a bonus, rooms comfortable with everything needed for a perfect stay really quiet, ample space and didn't mind the quirky bathroom next to bed, dressing gown and slippers a luxury and great flat screen tv with iPod docking station.
Breakfast was served in the chic restaurant nicely cooked and excellent friendly service, would fully recommend and will definitely be returning

Was looking for something cheap, modern/clean, close to tube station & Shaftsbury Ave. Was having real trouble getting anything suitable but this ticked all the boxes.

Excellent location and the facilities were great (air con in the hot summer was perfect!!). Really modern, clean looking room. Includes a restaurant and bar but we'd already made plans to eat elsewhere so can't comment on that.

Our room had a shower in the main bedroom/living area, which some may find odd but as a married couple didn't bother us!

Only slight negative was that there was a tiny piece of broken glass on the carpet that I stepped on but easily missed when cleaning I suppose as it was very clean other than that.

There was building work going on at a property opposite us at the time but you couldn't hear it through the windows so that was great too.

Would definitely return & recommend to others.

The room was nice but service very poor.

Breakfast was average with no buffet.

Plus, they treated my contemptuously and didn't want to assume their error as the didn't precharge in advance my credit card as it was stipulated when I booked the room. When a hotel makes an error usually you expect them to assume their error but they didn't. Finally it was a bad experience for me and I won't be coming back. So, I don't recommend this hotel.
