I work in the travel business and stayed in hundreds of hotels over the years. This was the first time I had stayed at any of the Shaftesbury Hotels in London and will be my last.
I was allocated the smallest room I have ever seen. Every few minutes the room would vibrate with the tube running underneath so could only sleep for the few hours during the night when the tubes don't run. I really cannot understand how this hotel has a four star rating as it has nothing to offer over than a reasonable location. There isn't really a bar as such and the reception is very unwelcoming. I couldn't see daylight from my room and there was no mobile reception so I had to keep going outside to see if I had any messages. I know that some people complain for complaining sake but working in the industry I am generally sympathetic towards problems. The price paid for the room was a total rip-off and I for one will not be staying there again.
