Location is brilliant, easy walk to Covent Garden, Leister Square and Oxford Street. The hotel itself is excellent. Our room was a great size for 3 people. We loved that there was a separate shower to the bath, also the free mini bar was very handy. Our room had access to the Amba Lounge, where we had breakfast everyday day and afternoon drinks most days. Roxana is the Amba Bar was so lovely and chatty, she did a fantastic job.

Great hotel in the best location in London. Smack in the middle and above a tube/rail station. Made getting around extremely easy. The room was spacious and well appointed and was the best one of the 6 hotels we stayed at in the UK, Poland, Vienna and Rome.
