Cute, great location!

We love trying hotels that are small and more boutique, vs a chain hotel brand. This is a sweet, but small property. Our room was very small but served the purpose of being near the British Museum and other London attractions that are not too far away. The dining room breakfast was really great. Huge spread and choices, and really good coffee. The beds were too small. Not a traditional twin. I would stay here again. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

Average central London hotel - recently refurbished, no gym

Stayed one night for work meeting held at hotel. Interior is all recently refurbished and decent standard, small inner courtyard room was well appointed with nice rain shower. Room was very warm - even with air conditioning on full. Good wifi in room.

Breakfast was decent spread, nice tea and coffee and hot buffet. Disappointed with limited options for lunch for our meeting though - odd selection.

No gym - which was a shame, but it's 5 min run to Central YMCA which has pay as you gym.

Highly recommend!

Excellent hotel, clean and very comfortable beds. Warm and welcoming, professional staff, all around great experience in one of the top locations in London. Safe, quiet area but walking distance from Oxford road, Leicester Square, and a lot of London’s great restaurants. We’ll be back for sure!

Perfect hotel for theatre trips, the British museum is very close too. Room service isn't ridiculously priced! Room was superb and the breakfast was as well with good vegetarian choices. Excellent hotel.

Very convenient access since only a few blocks to the British Museum and Holborn Station, and bus stop is just in front of the hotel.

Hotel itself is a bit old and you cannot avoid stairs to access to some of rooms, so you might be struggle if you have suitcase(s).
