This hotel is in a fabulous location - easy walking distance to three tube stations and right on a major bus line that goes to Picadilly Circus, Selfridges and Oxford Circus. Our room faced on the side street - good view and very quiet. Our stay included breakfast which was very good, with a very cordial restaurant manager who greeted us and made us feel welcome.
One major downside - the friendly manager at breakfast was the only friendly staff we encountered. The front desk staff was perfunctory at best. Also, the way the front desk is configured, no one observed guests coming in and out - could this be a security issue? We did have one minor maintenance issue – the sink stopper – that was resolved very promptly, but the gentlemen who fixed the problem was also not terribly friendly.
The internet was adequate, but you need a code to sign in each day and are limited to 2 devices - need new codes from the front desk and they seemed reluctant to hand out enough for our stay.
The room was very small - more like a room on a cruise ship than a hotel room - but storage was good. They have renovated recently and the room looked new and fresh. The bathroom was very small and we needed to maneuver around the door to get to the toilet - not a problem for us, but may be an issue for anyone who is mobility impaired (note - not a handicapped accessible room). The bathroom only had a shower, no tub – fine for us, but some may prefer to have the tub available.
Overall we would stay there again but mostly for the location - the hotel experience was really kind of average.
