        What a great improvement to have the ugly red paint removed! The updates to the rooms is outstanding! Beautiful decorations and splendid mattresses. Very pleasant updates! The desk staff were professional and welcoming. A change from other trips. Glen, the bellman was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He saved the day! The housekeeping people did a great job keeping things clean and in order. couldn't be better!

        While the dining room decor is splendidly updated and the manager is quite helpful, the food needs quite a bit of work. The English Breakfast is, as always, a disappointment much is uneatable unless one is fond of tasteless, cold bacon and sausage. The eggs at least taste like eggs, but stone cold as is the toast. Thank God the cold fish in water are gone.

        Super location easy to walk or get tube. Within walking of a few tube stations to avoid the inevitable train hopping. Hotel rooms could be updated, but grand and definately would stay here again. Super powerful shower.

        Continental breakfast not adequate for a hotel - could easily be improved. Toast cold and like cardboard. No yogurt for fruit or serial.

      • 1.4

        Close to tube station. Rooms clean. Staff very friendly. Very good breakfast.

      • 1.8

        The location of the hotel was perfect for a visit to Covent Garden or Lester Square. Room and bathroom were very nice and clean. Great deal.
