Great location; easy to get a bus or the tube; lots of restaurants around - nice quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of London; yet close to everything. I would stay there again

The location and price of this hotel are good. Unfortunately, the hotel looks shabby. It needs painting and other repairs. The staff is helpful and you can leave your luggage in the hotel's storage room after you check out

We shared a room with three single beds. There was barely no furniture in room, no chairs or luggage racks to place suitcases. Our things

Before I review anything- Expedia pictures of the room vs the room in actuality are completely different. The standard triple room I booked (in city sleeper part of hotel) looked like it was from the 1950s, no Wi-Fi, electric outlet didn’t work, active painting and construction in the hallway. The picture of the room on Expedia was the upgraded premium triple room. Regardless initially had a terrible shock with the poor status of the room and got paint on my dress on the way to afternoon tea. Employees were understanding but no one was able to rectify the situation. When manager Bakri heard what happened, he was kind enough to upgrade our rooms to what was pictured on Expedia. He was understanding and salvaged the rest of our time in London. My family and I were very thankful for him! Stay away from city sleeper- I would rank that side of the hotel as a 1. Location of the hotel is amazing, its in central London, close to tube, British museum and convent garden. Overall bc of Bakri we were able to have a great stay after we switched rooms!

Property in a great location to get around, a little run down bathroom door would not shut and the room was just looking worn down. But good value for what we paid

Tub is extremely high and therefore dangerous to get into and out of. Bed was not comfortable. Limited number of outlets for electronic devices. Two faucets for the sink. Room doors are extremely old and battered. This hotel needs to be modernized. The one great thing was the staff. They were extremely pleasant and did their best to assist in resolving issues.
