It’s adequate and central but it’s tired and needs some love and attention. Not a lot of extras offered. The bar was nice for a quiet drink

Great hotel, check in went well and the staff were wonderful. We liked the bar, and the second floor has a really nice common area with plenty of seating and computers for guests. The nicest thing about this hotel was all the little thoughtful touches. The rooms (we booked 2 for our group) had yoga mats and an umbrella, and near the rooms there was a supply cupboard for guests to top up coffee/milk/bedding etc. Also there's an ice machine, chilled filtered water and recycled plastic bottles to use. We were pleased to find they have a free laundry and detergent. The negatives for us were that the bathroom is really small and we didn't have a fridge, no huge drama though. The staff were happy to look after our bags for us after we had checked out - our flight out wasn't until 21:00 so they kept our bags for us for free and we picked them up in the afternoon. The location is nice and central, but very busy.

Excellent location - super central. Good value for money, rooms are large for London, but the hotel is a little dated.

Great location, close to Charing cross and embankment tube stations and key attractions. Easy distance to Buckingham palace, Westminster abbey, national portrait gallery and parliament. Great water pressure in the shower. No view.

Aussies in London

Pros: Free washing machine and dryer -with detergent supplied -Awesome! Chilled water machine with, the water bottles to fill as you need. Awesome! Gym
Cons: Make a designated smoking area away from hotel entrance
Location: Central location -close to theaters and restaurants. Great downstairs bar
Coming to the entrance of the hotel - people were standing on the steps and further onto the foot path smoking cigarettes. We don't object to people smoking (we are non -smokers) but, it was disgusting walking through the thick cloud of smoke and was hoping it wasn't a sign of things to come. We booked and payed for our room a long time in advance (we live in Australia) so, were disappointed to be put in a room directly above where renovations were taking place. What this meant for us was, we were woken up quite early by banging and the smell of burnt timber that they were working with. We were advised that the staff would find another available room and will move our belongings accordingly We packed everything up and set out on our activities for the day. Staff moved our belongings to another room roughly the same quality although, it did not have a microwave like our first room had. They brought the small fridge from our original room to the new room which we were happy about. It was also noticed that an item that was packed on top of one of our bags was not with all our contents, we certainly were not happy about this. We phoned to inform reception staff and were told they would call us after some investigation. Roughly after an hour waiting without a phone call to our room, we went to reception to ask if the item was found. Pleasingly yes it was but, no explanation was given as to why the item was not brought with the rest of our belongings.
