            Arrived an hour before our check in time, but was pleased to find our room ready. Location is great.

            Room pretty small, and bathroom something of a challenge with regard to negotiating in and out of the bath/shower due to its 'compact' nature. Some of the furniture looking a little tired, and bed sheet actually torn in 3 places. The sound on the TV also died within a few minutes of turning on. This hotel is rated as 5 star, its nice, but not that nice, although to be fair, I think we were just a bit unlucky with our room. We stayed at the sister hotel just around the corner last year, which is 4 star, but I would say that was better in every respect, especially the welcome from the staff and the condition of the rooms.

            Very central location. Good breakfast.

          • Older travelers

            This hotel is ideally situated for anyone seeing a show in theatre land and only a short walk from Covent Garden. The staff were very accommodating. We were even given a free upgrade on arrival! Bedrooms are spacious and well equipped. The breakfast was delicious.

            The staff ere very polite and courteous. the food at breakfast was first class and a great deal of choice. The room was very spacious.

            The room had not been serviced when we checked in. I booked a twin room and got a double bed and a sofa bed which wasn't suitable as I was running a marathon the next day and the sofa bed was very uncomfortable and I did not expect a sofa bed for the money I was paying. I also booked a room rate that has breakfast included and was charged for breakfast on top. Very disapointing.

          • Older travelers

            The warm friendly, helpful reception staff at arrival and the breakfast staff very helpful

            We were a little disappointed at the service of the bar staff in the evening and extremely shocked at the prices of the drinks at the bar, which would discourage us from using the bar in the future, should we return, which I would consider doing. (£17.00 for 2 drinks, as well as £2.00 extra for service charge) is a little on the ridiculous side.

            A lovely hotel right in the centre of Leciester square, very close to the theatre, shops, restaurants and nightlife.

            • Average rating
          • Family with children

            The position is excellent. Considering the price range it presents the advantage of offering free wi-fi access (generally other hotels of the same level ask an unreasonably high fee for access to the Internet). It is preferable to include breakfast, which is at a discounted price together with the room; otherwise to pay £ 21 is quite unreasonable

            As most London hotels the rooms are unreasonably small, especially if you are staying in two. A five star hotel should have as first requirement an adequate living space.

            The location is fantastic, the staff is friendly and helpful, breakfast very good. Interior design is excellent.

            For a de luxe room, it was not too spacious, in particular when it comes to the bathroom.

            Staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. Very good service!

            One of the windows in our room didnt have a window paine, we said to the staff but luckily it was warm In London so didnt really affect us. May have been a problem in winter months though!

            Hugely expensive especially given all the construction surrounding the hotel. Room faced construction site. Workers began at 9:00am which was rather annoying especially given the price of room. No hair dryer in room! This is an old-world hotel, very nice staff and great location.
