Reviewed 17 September 2013

I went to London for a little bit of business, and a little bit of pleasure. The Staunton was in the perfect place for both. I found an awesome Greek restaurant right around the corner, the location was perfect and within walking distance of three tube stops, and the friendly family owned atmosphere was welcoming yet extremely efficient.

I don't know if I will ever stay anywhere else.

The hotel is within easy walking distance of central London and can be reached from a number of different tube stops (Euston Sq, Goodge or closet is Russell St). It is an old town house (maybe two) and has compact, clean rooms with lovely ensuite bathrooms. There was an ac unit and this helped for a comfortable night when it was unusually hot. The staff were very friendly and happy to help out with advice and printing off boarding passes. The breakfast was a buffet with a hot menu option at no extra cost. An altogether great find that I will certainly be using again next time I visit London.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back as I think the road is quite a busy one and I think might get noisy. The back...

Staff was really friendly.Perfect for walking distance to shopping and all main areas and if you didn't want to go to far there were lots of pubs and places to eat just a stone throw away . The room was really nice. The breakfast was nice. Will Definitely be staying there again

We picked this hotel based on the location - close to the Dominion Theatre. Turned out it was also very well located for the British Museum. Room was comfortable. Bathroom just had a shower and was small but clean. Breakfast was good and we easily got a table in the restaurant.

Just back from a Friday/Saturday weekend break in London to watch Mama Mia (would recommend) Stayed at the Staunton Hotel which was brilliant. Don't understand some of the recent reviews about the hotel. Take it from me I am very fussy about where I stay and this hotel was great. We stayed in Room 303 on the 3rd floor and was a triple room. There is no lift but we just got on with it. The reception staff were great and very helpful. The room was spotless, warm but once we used the air conditioning it was fine and that did help. Shower was great. The mini bar was well stocked but we didn't use it since we had bought our own alcohol. Sheets were clean, no holes and the mattress was very comfortable. When we went down for breakfast we had to wait but that only took around 5 minutes because the dining room is small but once seated breakfast was lovely (and I don't usually do full English breakfast). Would recommend this hotel, however if you struggle to walk up stairs this is not the hotel for you unless you get the first floor. Even left our suitcases when we went out shopping on the Saturday since we were catching the train back at 6pm. Looking at going back again in the next 3 months

Room Tip: We booked the triple room (303) since there were 3 of us but its on the 3rd floor and there is no li...

Grubby hotel
Scruffy staff
1st room given on ground floor smelt of sewage
Next room on 3rd floor, no lift, no assistance with luggage
Room badly decorated, mattress ancient, holes in sheets, room very hot - could not sleep air conditioning ineffective
Bathroom - well really shower room - poor decor but shower worked which was quite amazing given everything else
Paid way too much for this at £189
