“Great location”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Stayed here in April. Chose it for its location only ten minutes walk from the Dominion Theatre. Our room was in the basement so there was no view, but we only needed the room to sleep and shower so it was ok. The breakfast was wonderful.

So if you want somewhere central (near British Museum), it's ideal.

Immediately upon entering our room, we noticed how neat and nice everything was. While the room might be smaller than you might find at accommodations outside the London area, it was perfect for two people and wonderfully maintained. The breakfast served in the morning was filling and delicious- my first taste of a full English breakfast! The location was also convenient to many restaurants and attractions and a 5 minute walk to a tube station. Makes an excellent base for exploring London and would recommend to any looking for a great place to stay in London!

Not a good start when I arrived and was told abrubtly to wait to be booked in. However the room was big for a single (room 8) and the bed comfy although the bathroom was rather on the small side. Nice view from window and very quiet for central london apart from creaky floorboards. Lovely breakfast and friendly staff after initial impression if rudeness. Would definately stay again.

I now regard the Thanet as my home when I am in London! The atmosphere is warm and the ethos caring - the owners and staff are lovely. The bright flowers outside are so welcoming too, and you can admire them while eating your delicious breakfast.

Stayed here for six days with four grandchildren - three teenagers and one young adult. Had two three-person rooms. Hotel is located on quiet street in good neighborhood. Five to ten minute walk to British Museum and several tube stops. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. Many good ethnic restaurants nearby. Breakfast was great, with excellent service. Owners and employees were very helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here in early August. It was a great place to stay for a family. We had one of the family rooms on the first floor which was convenient since there is no elevator to the upper floors. The room is small by American standards as is the bathroom but perfectly manageable and typical for smaller hotels in Europe. It was pretty hot in London when we were there but luckily our unit did not get too hot. The included breakfast is excellent with hearty fare. The staff is very accommodating including letting us eat a cold breakfast early when we had to leave very early in the morning one day. It's about 2 blocks from the Tube (the Holburn stop on the red line). Keep in mind there is no elevator.

Room Tip: the family room on 1st floor near the back is quiet, avoid front of hotel which gets street noise. B...

Location - 15 mins walk away from St Pancras train station, few mins walk away from British Museum and Russell Square underground station. Approx 15 minutes walk away from Leicester Square. The Original Tour Bus stop on same road as hotel (Museum route) ....very central location!!

Hotel - check in quick and facility to leave cases before and after checkin / checkout. Room very clean,comfy and quiet. Everything you need after visiting the buzzing sites of London. Breakfast...very tasty, suits all tastes and diets, though service a little slow as all tables were occupied.

Would definitely go there again when visit london. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family. :)
