Best place to stay in London.

This Hotel is exceptional. The location is perfect. The room we had was fantastic with all the facilities you would expect in a 5 star Hotel. The staff were prompt and efficient with all requests. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in London and want to be near everything.

Great location but no late checkout

Central location gives access to Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square plus the tube at charing cross station. Walking distance to a lot of attractions and Buckingham palace. No late checkout means luggage may have to be stored. Heathrow airport is best approached with London airport transport at less then half of taxi can fare.

Great Location

The hotel itself was lovely, nice and clean and all we needed for two nights, staff were very helpful however the heating in our room did not work, it blew out cold air constantly and the fact we were staying there on the coldest weekend in February it didn't help!! We told the staff twice but it wasn't sorted and we didn't get moved to another room!! that was the only disappointing thing about the hotel. Would stay again as you are smack bang in the middle of all good locations... would just like to stay in a warm room next time!

perfect location - quality accomodation

We loved the location - ideal for short stay - able to walk to walk back with shopping from Covent Garden and West End theatres. Professional staff - not OTT, but very efficient. We will definitely stay there again.

Theatre break

Excellent location. I would recommend that you take an upgrade if possible. I upgraded to a queen room and this was quite small. We never managed to get chilled water for the room as there were never any disposable bottles available.

Location, Location, Location

So convenient to theatres and restaurants, tourist attractions, public transport. Staff always pleasant and eager to respond to requests. Essential to read all information about hotel. Strangely, rooms do not have fridge, but you can request one. Has a self-serve laundry room, not necessarily on the same floor as your room, and it has a microwave in it, which was very handy. Only disappointments were no plug in bathroom for hairdryer, only for shaver, no hairdryer and no retractable line for delicates to dry, but you could use the dryer in the laundry room. We were there during the Olympics.

Leicester Square, just behind Trafalgar Square. Plenty of choice. Angus beef steakhouse is excellent, a little pricey but you will enjoy your meal.

Good location but hotel need renovation

The hotel is just a minute from Trafalgar sq. The room is quite old. The toilet is hard to flush, the handle might have broken. The aircon/heater took too long to take in effect. When we ordered taxi as advised by the hotel receptionist, he booked the private hire car, not a cab. When we complaint, she assumed we know already. The issue was the private car cannot drive on the bus lane, made it longer time in peak time and the driver is not friendly at all. While waiting for the private car to arrive, we saw many available cabs. We should have just hoped into the taxi.
