The location was, for us, unbeatable. A stone's throw from Euston Station, it would make a great place to stumble off the train and spend the night - especially if next day's destination was the British Museum or similar.
We had a room on the fourth floor, fronting out onto the main road, but noise wasn't a problem ( and I am a light sleeper). I can see how it would be noisy lower down, though. Maybe the hotel could help by providing/selling earplugs? The room had nicely efficient air-con ( unusual - I find most hotels massively overheated - this one was just right, and the air-con was nice and quiet - for once!!) We both slept well though - the bed was very inviting and extremely comfy, with loads of pillows and a big cosy duvet. The room was extremely clean, and was compact, but big enough. The bathroom was very nice - the walls were covered in coloured glass panels - very stylish and spotless-looking. The shower was nice and hot, and very powerful, not stingy like some hotel showers - with nice toiletries too!
The wifi signal was not great, but we were on the fourth floor. I wasn't too bothered, as I was only looking up opening times of stuff, but if you had to use the wifi for anything important, you might struggle a bit. The staff, while seeming perhaps a little undertrained ( new staff perhaps?) were extremely friendly and helpful and very pleasant to deal with.
The price, while not cheap, was not extortionate - all in all, I'd say it was an OK price to pay. I have stayed in nearby hotels which were cheaper, and I must say you get what you pay for. This is probably not great value if you are just in transit and want to arrive, sleep and then leave quickly - a cheaper "crash-pad" type place would be better value, but if, like me, you were going on an overnight as a bit of a treat and wanted something a bit better, this hotel will do the job. If you are concerned about noise, ask for a room higher up. All in all, I'd say this was a pretty good hotel - I'd certainly use it again.
