                  8.2

                  All staff were very friendly and courteous.

                  Just one small comment - on arrival and going to our room, there were a couple of trays in the corridor waiting for collection. (uneaten food etc). They stayed there a couple of hours. We thought it looked a little unsightly and, perhaps, should have been taken away with a little more haste.

                  extra charge for espresso at breakfast??? not good! at least for italian customers

                  Very comfortable and well appointed. Superb location on the edge of theatreland

                  It may be personal tastes, but the room was a bit characterless and "travelodge" style.

                • Couple

                  Location to attractions

                  Our room was dirty it had chocolate stained sheets under the pillows and scum all over the sink when we arrived. We found empty crisp packets under the chairs in the louge area and empty chocolate packets under the pillows on the bed which had stained the bedding where it had obviously not been changed properly. If it were not for the fact we didnt check in until late we would have complained about it but it was late and we were tired so we just tidyed up ourselves and made the most of it.

                  location very good,city centre and close to underground station,clean, quiet and comfortable rooms.

                  Liked the style of the hotel and liked the comfort of the rooms

                  Cold bathroom

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  Staff very helpful, room was a good size and clean, having room service and a great resturant and bar area, and location for what we wanted. Food was exceptional

                  Time it took to remove an incorrect internet charge from the account was unacceptable when in a hurry checking out. Would be great if they provided free internet

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  Comfortable. Lovely breakfast. Quiet compared to previous hotels in London

                  VAT was not shown on my original booking. This is misleading. When I went to check out it was added. Not very happy. I feel this is misleading.Plasma TV a bit temperemental.

                • Older travelers
                  6.6

                  The location is good for sightseeing, bus stop right outside the hotel. Very good breakfast

                  We were at the front of the hotel--there are building works being carried out which start early in the morning. There was constant noise in the bedroom all night from the air-conditioning system and the vent in the bathroom. We ate in the hotel on our first evening and thought the food was not of a very good standard, very expensive drinks.

                  Lovely welcoming staff, got a lovely reasonably priced upgrade to include breakfast. Held our bags on day of departure after checkout so we could enjoy the last day. Lovely room, big comfy bed with plenty of pillows. Bathroom with large shower and separate bath with shower over both showers rainfall style very powerful. Breakfast with wide selection beverages and toast served to your table, buffet food. All staff friendly and helpfully.

                  Enjoyed the whole stay from check in to check out.

                  Excellent location

                  A bit on the pricy side - particularly when breakfast is extra.
