Good for a base for exploring London
Reviewed 9 hours ago

Clean and well appointed. It flashy and rooms quite small, but functional with all amenities you need. Had two nights there as we had a couple of days in London eating, seeing shows etc.
Only criticism would be that they charge for water, none complimentary, which at central London hotel prices is fairly poor I think.
Room was VERY warm and air con could only go down to 19 degrees and even on full blast wasn’t very effective.
But a perfectly adequate room for the purpose and reasonably priced.

very good for price paid

Overall very good albeit lower level room (offer price) was a little dark and noisy.The staff and the breakfast were excellent and the hotel location was first class.If it is good value at a reasonable price,then this hotel (at the offer price) meets all the criteria.

We were really happy with our stay in this hotel, rooms were good although
the single room was very very small. Location is excellent right across from Gloucester Rd underground and round the corner from the Natural History Museum. It is noisy if you are in a room facing the road so take ear plugs but by far the best point about this hotel was the staff, everyone we met couldn't do enough to ensure we had a great stay
