We stayed at the Gloucester because we needed to be close to Harley Street and not as a tourist. This is a typical London terraced property within walking distance to Marble Arch and Oxford Circus/Street. Check in was very simple and this hotel owns the property next door which is used in conjunction with the main hotel. Our room (No.25) was next door and although we only booked a double we were placed in a room with a double and single bed. This did make the room feel quite small and although it was clean it did seem to look a bit tired. The en suite had a corner bath which again was clean but tired looking. Our room had an air conditioning unit which was free standing and the outlet was through the window. Hence no windows could be opened and we had to have the unit on all night which was very very noisy.
Breakfast (in the basement) was a surprise as we only expected a typical continental breakfast (a full English was an extra £3.00 each) however, there was scrambled eggs, omelettes, cold meats and cheeses, fresh fruit and various yoghurts.
I rated this hotel very good purely on the price we paid and the location. I am not sure that I would spend more than 1 or 2 nights. The staff were very helpful too. Whilst there is free wifi in the rooms I was unsuccessful in managing to get any even though I tried on 2 phones and 1 tablet. In fairness to the hotel I did not speak to reception about this as we were only there for 1 night. The tea and coffee facility was exceptional, generally you only get a couple of sachets of coffee and tea bags but there was about 5/6 of each.
