Had a lovely stay with my husband for our anniversary even got free upgrade on our room. Staff were pleasant and polite , did find when we come back in the evening from being out for a quick drink the drinks were more expensive in hotel than out and about in London and the lady serving was a little blunt and abrupt but other than that we had a nice stay.

Stayed here for the night with my wife when we went to see a show in London. The location of the hotel is great as it’s a couple of mins walk from both Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square and also Covent Garden only about 15 min walk away. The staff were helpful and we were checked on easily and quickly. However based on my room I would not say this is a 4 star hotel and did not warrant the price we paid. Our room was of an average size for a London hotel, however it wasn’t particularly clean. The nets that hang at the windows we grey where they clearly hadn’t been washed for sometime. The bedside tables were chipped and one of them had some sort of major damage which resembled a burn of some sort. The internal double glazing steamed up within mins of being in the room and water just ran down the inside. The air on/heating in the room was broken (spanner flashing) and it was either really cold or really hot. The general decor was tired and paint pealing from some of the walls.
