    Staffs are friendly. Location is great. Breakfast in the club lounge was lovely. They serve very tasty traditional English breakfast.

    This is not this hotels fault, though, if Charingcross tube station would have lifts... It was a bit hard to carry my heavy suitcase up/down the stairs.

    The staff will make sure you’ll be happy in any way they can! Loved the fact that the minibar, lounge and breakfast were included at the rate!

    The environment is a little bit sketchy but it only comes out after 22:00 so I’d say it doesn’t really matter since most of the touristic parts of London are like that at nights

    Efficient reception team, baggage deposited until room ready as we were early but when we returned met by a friendly greeting from Clive and bag already in the room. Excellent sized and equipped room (although they forgot to replace the used tea bags) but very much enjoyed our stay

    Well located, many attractions near, some within walking distance. The Staff are excellent, from the moment I walked in I felt they were there for any question I might have. Hotel employee at the front desk was excellent.

    Had a problem with the shower drain, it would back up (not to the point that it overflowed), but not work properly. Maintenance attempted to resolve (2x) but it was still slow and backed up. Hotel employee offered another rm,same issue, we use the tub.Old
