This was my first visit to the Rathbone. Reception was quick and painless. I was given a single room (507) overlooking roofs to the rear, not very exciting but at least it was quiet. The room was simple and clean but you should note that there were no tea/ coffee making facilities, which I now expect as standard. Reasonably firm bed. Shower but no bath. I was offered an upgrade to a double room with free wifi for an additional £30 but declined for just one night. The main attraction of this hotel was the price and, bearing in mind that it was London, I was satisfied with what I was given. The location is near Googe Street underground station. This is accessible for the British Museum but a fair hike for most other places of interest in London. The full English breakfast was £15 if you preorder and I thought it was a nice touch that you could book a time/ table in case they were busy the next morning (they weren't). I would happily stay here again for a short visit but, due to the location, it probably wouldn't be my first choice when visiting London for pleasure.
