3 out of 5

Very good location, close to Piccadilly circus, Leicester square and chinatown. Close to train stn. Comfy rooms and clean bathroom but no minibar! Bought some drinks and food thinking there would be a fridge to store but to no avail... Unless you were in a suite. When we asked to use the microwave we weren't allowed. When we called reception to find out particulars eg best way to the airport and how to get to the underground station and length of journey etc the receptionist was not familiar and said he would get a colleague to call us back. We waited over one hour and had to call reception back as we did not hear from them. Mind you this was past 11pm so it's not like it was a busy time for them. Wifi was expensive-10pounds for 24 hr. Cheaper to use outside and cheap food outside for brekky as well.

Location couldnt be better, the room however was very uncomfortable. Tiny for a double, a 4 foot 6 inch double crammed into the corner you have to be a contortionist on one side to get up at night and go to the bathroom. Very hard lumpy mattress well past replacement date! Bathroom amenities one soap one shower gel one shampoo, for £148 a night ! expected more. Doors from other rooms do slam shut very loudly and shake the room,after a long day sightseeing been woken up at 1 the 2 in the morning is annoying.

Service staff tried hard to please after a couple of minor issues but the issues shouldn't have happen in the first place. Fine for the price I got it at, $120 usd.

I was only coming through London for one night for a meeting. The hotel was perfect, location, room size, and staff attentiveness. A great value for the money.

At the moment this hotel is discounted at least 30% due to refurbishment works at the hotel. I chose the hotel originally because of the location. It's a great location next to Trafalgar Square for exploring central London. On checking in, I was informed that there could be noise in the day during the refurbishment works. To be honest the only works I could see were going on were in reception and I could not hear anything from the hotel room. The rooms have recently been refurbished and are very nice and clean. The executive room is a good size for central London with a very large double bed. Very good value. The staff were friendly and efficient. I will recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable hotel in a good location.

I chose this hotel for its location, however on arrival I was disappointed as the room was very small and the sir conditioner made too much nosie to be able to sleep with it on. I travel a lot on business around teh world and sadly I would not recommend this hotel
