Goodenough- don't believe the photos
Staff were great ; location and area too. Problem was the condition of the initial bedroom which had been fitted on over the courtyard view which i had paid extra for and no longer existed - the room was like a cell!!! ( i had to upgrade despite paying very high rate compared to chains in same area ) Second bedroom which was very large and bright was in need of an overhaul as it was very tired.he bathrooms were excellent in both.

Comfortable stay in Bloomsbury
We booked for 2 people so unsure why the sofa bed had been made up. Bed was comfortable and breakfast in the Grand Hall was OK.Price a little bit expensive for London mid-range hotel.

London Theatre break
Our stay in London was excellent made especially pleasant by the hotel and its staff. Our only criticism was the lack of a mirror in the room. There were mirrors in the bathroom but none in the room. Our friends came with us and their room and experience was as pleasurable as ours. Thank you we will definitely recommend you to others

ovely safe and comfortable base.
I love staying here as the hotel is comfortable, secure and quiet. This time my room was lovely, though my only gripe was a rather hard mattress.

Poor 2.0
Bizarre experience - awful room and rude staff
The room we were given was shocking. It was in an odd outdoor basement area, with a courtyard around it and glass windows in place of walls, meaning the only privacy was via the shoddy curtains. The room itself was basically identical to student accommodation. Two uneven and uncomfortable single beds pushed together to make a supposed double, no thermostat, a tiny and highly claustrophobic bathroom, a shower that took a full three minutes of running until the water warmed slightly, obvious paint patches on the wall and frankly a very depressing and utilitarian and ugly vibe. On complaining to the staff member on duty, we were met with belligerence. As I described it as student accommodation, he got quite irate and informed me that they DO have separate student accommodation (!) but that it wasn’t anywhere near as “nice” as our room, and rather rudely invited me to come and see their student accommodation to compare for myself. Add to this the bizarre fact the breakfast was supposedly served in another building which was across the square, I would advise against this place. For the same, not insignificant amount of money, there are thousands of decent hotels in London - with polite staff and a thermostat.
