    Very smart hotel just seconds from Trafalgar Square - situated behind the National Gallery, which was ideal as the reason for staying was to be very early in the queue for the Leonardo exhibition. A very good deal, considering the price of all the other hotels in the area - and I was amazed at how large the room was.

  • Family with children

    Air conditioned room. Very near to Leicester Square, Soho, Piccadilly Circus, China Town, Trafalgar Square. The room is too small for twin bedded room.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    We needed a really early start to queue for the Leonardo tickets at the National Gallery, so you were perfectly positioned for us to get out by 5.30am. We took it in turns to pop back to the hotel to eat breakfast, while the other kept the place in the queue. We were successful - got tickets and thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition. We would definitely use your hotel to do the same again if we needed to.

    The location and helpfulnes of the staff.

    It seemed to be a game with the cleaning staff abou where if at all they wouldput the secod towel.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    great location

    had requested rooms to be close together and on as low floor as possible due to fear of lifts! this was requested 2months in advance at time of booking and also by direct contact with hotel by phone 6wks prior to arrival where i was assured "wouldent be a problem! we were offered 3rd floor with some considerable distance apart so ended up on 6floor"not very convienient" to have rooms closer together!

  • Single

    Location - staff friendliness and clean

  • Couple

    Good Location, just far enough from Leicester Square not to be disturbed, Room small but clean and functional. Perfectly adequate for a weekend break.

    Shower and water temperature need to be hotter.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    There was a problem with the booking but was sorted out quickly. The location is fantastic and near to everything.

    The bar was very noisey and with the rugby on the tv people not staying at the hotel were catching and getting drunk. Would be better if the tv was removed and the bar accomodated the people staying at the hotel more than outsiders coming in.

  • Group of friends

    We were upgraded to a junior suite as have to add an extra bed. We has to move to another hotel just down the road.Staff has been very helpful. Just love the location as it is bang in the central London

  • Couple
    7.0

    Excellent location right in the middle of Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, and Picadilly Circus. The room was very large compared to other European hotels.

    The "king sized" bed was NOT very comfortable. You can feel the springs when you lay down. It was actually two beds instead of one king sized bed.

  • Single
    8.8

    Straightforward, convenient and friendly

    Staff forgot the morning call (mentioned at the time)

  • Couple
    9.0

    -The location of the hotel was fantastic, very close to the Piccadilly Circus underground station, Piccadilly Theater, and most important Cinnabon! -Our room was great. A large corner room with lots of windows, a large bathroom, a view of the National Gallery and the morning sunrise. And, this was all in a standard room. I look forward to staying again in one of the higher class rooms

    -Our room was a little tired (slightly peeling wall paper, chips in paint on the windowsill) but not enough to turn us off

    Friendly staff and great value for its very central location

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The staff and service was wonderful. The large rooms and proximity to major museums.

    This time the towels were in the bathroom - much better.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The location was excellent however the hotel left much to be desired especially for the price paid.

    The bathroom was tiny and my knees touched the wall when sat on the loo. There was no shower in the morning due to maintenance problems but we were offered no recompense. At breakfast the staff were all trying to do everything leading to some chaos, visitors not getting coffee, noone to seat people when they arrived and the buffet not being topped up. A lack of coordination and demarcation of roles.
