Excellent hotel, fantastic location

Pros: Location, location, location!!!! Busy high street so heaps of eating options plus a Waitress across the street.
Cons: We had a faultless stay.
Location: 200m to Gloucester Rd Tube station which is Piccadilly, Circle and District Lines so only a few stops to any major attractions in central London.
Wonderful hotel only 200m from Gloucester Tube Station. Restaurant & Bar great ambience, nice food and reasonably priced. Good sized room for inner city London. Great staff. Will definitely be staying again. Happy to Recommend!!!!

Fantastic staff

Staff where amazing. Very friendly and welcoming. The room was a let down. Could barely walk around the bed. Bathroom was only big enough for one person. The bed was very hard and had lumps. did not get much sleep here unfortunately. Great location to underground.

Very Small Room

Single Rooms are VERY small...a bed shoved against the wall, and the bathroom barely wide enough to stretch your arms.( perhaps a small refurb with less oversized furniture would help the space not feel so claustrophobic) Upgrade offered to a king bed for an extra £60 per night ( after being told they were booked out), which was strange because their website showed double rooms available. When questioned about this strangely a double room became available for an extra £40 per night. On a positive note, location is great, 1 minute from Gloucester Rd tube, and the breakfast offering has a very good selection. I would stay again, however, never in a single room!

Pros: Breakfast and staff
Cons: I booked a standard double but seemed more like a standard single with an extra bed so smaller than I expected.
Location: Perfect
Value: Affordable; The location was the best - transport, restaurants and it was extremely clean.
