Good hotel
Great hotel, central location within walking distance of all attractions. Rooms are a bit on the small side but clean and warm with a good bathroom. Staff customer service excellent

Great location
Great location for exploring London, in close proximity to Covent Garden, Leicester Square and the West End. Although, this hotel does not have parking facilities there is secure car parking within walking distance.

Great location but just OK hotel
It was in a great location but I thought the rooms could’ve been remodeled especially for the price we paid… $340 a night is very expensive to not get breakfast and have a very dated looking room.

Bad service
Management did not respond to my concerns. I requested face cloths but had to ask twice the first day, the next day i had to again make 2 requests but still no face cloths. I responded to a survey indicating my issue and all i got in response was an email apology asking if there was anything they could do to make my stay better...yeah...face cloths! Still didnt get them. I was also questioned by the seever i the lounge when i entered after going for a walk as to my being a guest and what room i was in, they then asked my name and at that i became perturbed. Enough already! There has to be a better way to keep unwanted people out of the hotel than by peppering guests with questions. The room also had no luggage rack, naybe thats an american thing. To these issues management offered nothing other than an apology. Amazing. The place also loooks better online than in person.

we had a complimentary room upgrade and also after a problem with no hot water had breakfast added to our stay so all in all a good hotel with good service and good location for Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Oxford Street. Would happily stay again 🙂
