I stayed here for one night, to attend a function close by. I booked a single room, which was at the top (8th floor) of the hotel. It was hot during the day, and very cold at night, with no extra blankets stored in the room. The room was small, with two single beds, that slid around the room as soon as you sat on them. The TV didn't work. The only items they provide in the bathroom are a small bar of soap and one of the world's oldest, scratchiest towels. Hence the feeling of prison cell...
On the plus side, it was clean enough, and it had a nice view over Tavistock Square, and the location is quite convenient.
The hotel is popular with visitors from Eastern Europe, but as an expat Brit, I found it a very depressing representation of what London has to offer. If you are visiting London for the first time, I would recommend that you try and suck up the high prices of better accommodation, in order to enhance your overall experience. It's still a great city, but the Tavistock could leave you thinking otherwise.More
