Our Opinion
A basic hotel offering good value for what you pay. Lots of tour operators (Contiki, Globus, etc) us this hotel as the starting point for their tours, as a result this hotel is very busy, especially in the morning and evening when many tours start and end. Lots of triple rooms (3 single beds) available. Bank machine and foreign exchange available in the lobby.

Overview
This hotel is ideally located in the heart of London, next to some of the city's greatest attractions. Visit the British Museum, go shopping on Oxford Street or take advantage of the many pubs and restaurants in Soho. The hotel's 1630 simple and comfortable rooms are mostly furnished with twin beds and offer a coffee/tea tray. The property provides many services including three bars, three restaurants (one buffet-style), a coffee shop, a bar open daily until 2 AM and a souvenir shop. It also offers private parking (fee) as well as a health centre (fee) with a pool, sauna and whirlpool. A safety deposit box is available at the reception for a fee. An excellent value in terms of quality and price.

Location: British Museum, Oxford Street, Soho.
Subway: Russell Square

Basic budget hotel which should be cheaper!

We booked a double room online for a 2 night stay. We were told there were no double rooms available on arrival and could only be given a twin room. Not a great start! We managed to just get there before a huge crowd of students, which seems to be the main guests of the hotel. This means it is often noisy, I woke up on a few occasions to people shouting in the halls and also what sounded like someone being sick in a close by room. The rooms are cold in the cooler months so we had to turn on the radiator which made a constant loud noise. The rooms are very dated and in need of a renovation. Only soap and towels provided in rooms so don't forget to take your own shower gel and shampoo. Continental breakfast wasn't great with only a small selection of cereals, bread and tea/coffee. Not even fruit which was disappointing so we bought our own from nearby shop and ate out the 2nd morning. Staff aren't the friendliest and could do with smiling.

Very noisy. Budget with great location.

The hotel is not god. Was there in 2013. Not bad location. Poor breakfast. Basic rooms.And very, very noisy!Noise insulation is just awful! Our room was on the 3rd floor and it was like that you are sleeping on the bus station. The windows overlooked the courtyard and buses with tourists were parked there all the time.

Weekend visit

Stayed here at the weekend, Friday and Saturday night.We had two family rooms consisting of a double and single bed - each room with two adults and a child.Room fine - clean, comfortable, basic (but it is a value hotel). Tea/coffee provided, tv, only bars of soap in bathroom which is very basic but we always take own.One room was on road side where there was some traffic noise but this faded as background noise and you expect this in a busy city.The other room was over the square/courtyard area and that room was very noisy with noise from the two bars and hotel smoking area until early hours. Windows are only single glazed so that doesn't help.The breakfast (Inc hot breakfast) was included in our price and was very good. Lots of choice and nice.There is also a bag store for arrival/departing days which is handy, and the staff were mostly friendly/helpful.

Good budget hotel

Rooms basic but fine, pillows not the best! Good restaurant/breakfast. Rooms overlooking cortyard can be very noisy due to bars below, & windows not being double glazes. Think roadside rooms are quieter. Hotel is very busy with foreign students & coaches coming & going. OK for a budget hotel stay.
