Central to what we wanted... stairs were daunting especially after the 6th time.

The hotel is nothing like its pictures. We booked the penthouse. It was a mattress on the floor. The bathroom had mould. The walls had cracks. The sheets were as if they weren't washed. The room was freezing. Not worth staying here.

I like this hotel and will stay there again: my 3 priorities for any hotel are: cleanliness, comfortable bed and good shower. My room had all three, plus friendly staff. If you can't do stairs, then I don't recommend this hotel. And roadworks on Oxford Street kept me awake one of the nights, but in all, good value for money and a great location.

My one night stay was in a room best described as functional, fairly well maintained albeit with obvious band-aid solutions to maintenance issues, the bare minimum of facilities, maybe a bit of old-fashioned charm if your taste runs to Darcy Niland novels. For the price it's good value, its position on Oxford St is great if you like a bit of streetlife, and the people are very nice.
