Genuinely helpful service with a smile, excellent breakfast at only £12 pp. Convenient location within walking distance of Covent Garden, theatres and shopping. Spacious room which was adequate. Bathroom towel rail was not working but they fixed it immediately.

Very pleasant stay. The room service food was delicious and the young man who delivered it was very polite and professional. I didn't get his name - he was tall, slim and possibly Eastern European. Excellent service!

Poor 2.0
Let down
Very disappointed with our room. The hotel looks nuce but my room was supposed to be delux but in fact looked cramped and very tired with chips out of furniture, worn out seat. The bathroom was freezing because the towel rail didnt work, which aldo meant damp towels the next morning. The window must have had a gap as sll you could hear was whistling wind through the night and the air con unit makes a lot of noise. Overall a bit gutted as i'm not well off and thought I'd paid a good price for a great hotel. I was wrong.

Lovely Place
Great hotel, friendly staff, only drawback was, what can only be described as a repetitive washing machine type of noise in the room (422). Wouldn’t hesitate at staying again, just in a different room.

Good Rooms, Good Location, No Good Breakfast
The room was comfortable and spacious, in a good location and the price was very reasonable. however the attitude of the gentleman on at night when we returned from the meal was quite impatient. The breakfast which £12 each and had clearly been out for a while and the bacon was quite hard because of this.

Satisfactory but small rooms
Hotel and service was very good but i did feel the rooms were not as advertised and pretty small. Great location for everything i wanted to do.
