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.

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

Cheap & Cheerful

Stayed here during marathon weekend and it's ok, we got it at a good price on Super Break including train fare. Yes the place could do with a tidy up, the decor is a little tired and dated. But the room was comfortable and the breakfast was ok. The staff were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay. At the end of the day you get what you pay for.

Not the best of stays

The only advantage of this hotel is that it has reasonable prices for the location (minutes from Russell Square Metro Station). But I've stayed previously in Premiere Inn, and would recommend it over this one by all means!The staff is very rude (especially the Philippino lady at the Breakfast Hall, and the probably-Slovakian barmaid in the lounge bar)- Long queues at the Breakfast Hall (can't believe such a huge hotel has only one area for breakfast!)- English Breakfast is paid extra!!! (and you don't even get real bacon)- Beds in the room are on wheels, like in the hospitals- No hair dryer, no WC brush- Can't mix hot&cold water - seperate faucets- Everything very dated (TV especially), even though clean

Social visit

Awful... Dirty.. Grubby.. Noisy... Large groups of students. Long queue for breakfast.. The dining room was like a large transport cafe.. Plastic chairs.. No comforts... Eating was no joy whatsoever.. Felt sick.. The lady behind the breakfast counter. Very rude to people. Never again. The worse hotel I have ever stayed in.

Clever choice!

The most suitable place to stay if you're on business or city break, the tube station is just 5 minutes walking from the hotel. Spacious and clean rooms, standard amenities, yet, ladies, please do not forget your hair dryer home because you will not find any. Otherwise, you will find a rich and delicious breakfast. Additionally, close by the hotel you will find a supermarket and a little square with various shops, cafes and restaurants.
