- What's Included
Very handy hotel in a great area, between Holborn and Russell Square. Perfect to visit the Bloomsbury area, British Museum, Covent Garden, etc. Nice rooms and very good restaurant. Prices are correct. A good choice for business and short stays.
Nice hotel, well located, with pleasant rooms and close to mainline and tube stations. Let down by too few staff, who are also quite slow. One person on reception at checkin and checkout, making promises they don't keep and negotiating with colleagues to get rooms cleaned. Language is clearly an issue. Two people at breakfast, one to clear the tables, the other to point at the buffet. Choose rooms with higher numbers on each floor as they will be to the back of the hotel away from the lift shaft and Bloomsbury Way.
Silver card holders are supposed to be offered a welcome drink. Not here! A free dessert at Marco's Restaurant BUT only if you have a main course - swizz.Room cold and heating not working.Bed lovely and comfortable though and room well presented if a little small.Staff excellent.
We stayed here for 4 nights in early October, primarily because of a discounted rate and ratings on Expedia, but I wish we had stayed somewhere else. First, the room was just very strange. The only window was a skylight directly over the bed, so rooms above ours could look right onto our bed! At the end of the bed was a desk, too close to the bed and so for two people to go back and forth to the bathroom, desk and sitting area, we were always bumping into each other. There was not alarm clock, and the weirdest thing was the bathroom. There was only one towel rack and it was in the shower! Impossible to keep a towel dry or handy. Also, the toilet roll holder was opposite the toilet, too far to just reach (unless you are blessed with long arms) so you had to get off the toilet to get the paper. The housekeeping could have been a lot better. The drinking cups were cheap plastic ones that were never replaced, even though they were used. Any soap wrappers or soiled tissues left on tables, sink or desk were not removed either. We did not enjoy returning to our room at night because all of these inconveniences were too much!! Also, the food served at breakfast at the restaurant there was HORRIBLE. You're much better off going down the street to the many French cafes or coffee shops.
I stayed for 4 nights at this hotel on business. The hotel is around a 10 minute walk from Holborn tube station and close to a number of popular theatres. The room was clean of although fairly small, well set out and equipped with tea/coffee making facilities, an iron and ironing board and hairdryer. The bed was comfortable. The hotel has a pleasant Italian Restaurant attached and also provides room service. The food was of good quality and the choice at breakfast time was extensive. The most impressive thing about this hotel was the staff; they could not have been more helpful. They really seemed to understand customer service. Two staff really stood out in the restaurant and reception for their exceptional consideration of my needs as a guest. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to other travellers.
