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

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • IrisGefenShave : Tel Aviv, Israel
great location

We have been there for 3 nights on November 2016The room size was ok. We had twin room, and another room with extra bed. The rooms were clean. Small TV, but we didn’t need it.no refrigerator in the room, and my mom needed it for her insulin. So we made a request in the reception, and in one hour they brought us a small refrigerator. We also forgot to bring adaptors for the electricity, so they have a service that you can borrow adaptors for toy mobileBreakfast was simple - butter and toast. Milk and cornflakes/. You can pay 5 pound in the dining room and get English breakfast.The dining room was not so clean - but it was enough for us/We recommend it especially because of the location near Russell squareMany bus lines and near the tube station

As good as it needs to be

Affordable, crowded rooms, not necessarily the cleanest. No one stays at this hotel because of its comfort level. If you are going to London to see London, this room will be just fine. Check out the pub on the main level!

Good value deal

The location of the hotel is very good. My room was very clean and well maintained. Because of its sheer size the corridors can be very confusing, but all floors are well serviced by modern lifts. The buffet breakfast has a wide variety of choice. As with most buffets the heat of the food could vary. At the walk in price of £98 or the internet price of £88 the hotel was not good value. I would, however, return if they repeated the offer I had of three nights for the price of two.

Worst experience

The staff is not welcoming, arguing in front of customers and get annoyed when you ask questions. There was an elderly couple who didnt speak English as their native language. They lady at the desk told them to step out the line and make up their mind; they just wanted to check inThe room is small and very dirty, you can see black spots of dirt across the room. The covers they give you at night is an old blanket much like a teddy bear fur with a thin linen cloth blanket underneath. The bathtub has probably never been cleaned. The one night I tried it I could feel pieces of dirt on my back when I leaned into it. The ventilation is also covered i dirt. You can hear people breathing in the hallway through the door.The WIFI keeps disconnecting and you have to sign in over and over again. One morning we got companied by housekeeping at 08:15. After telling him 4 times that I didnt want any cleaning at this hour he got mad and slammed the door. I mean we are on vacation I would expect to get some extra hours of sleep.The checkout is at 11 AM and you have to pay to keep your luggage at the hotel, and again the man who is in charge of the luggage is not a happy man.First and last visit.

You get what you pay for......basic!

Room okay, but for three people in one room there were only 2 plug points.otherwise clean and comfortable. But as for the breakfast. It was like a very noisy school canteen, queuing to get in, queing for food tea and coffee, queing to share tables. Breakfast was ok, but the tea and coffee were dreadful! As I said.......you get what you pay for!
