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.

Royal National

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
