10.0 Excellent
Pros:Stayed 7 nights and really enjoyed the hotel. Room was very nice. Bed very comfortable. The staff are very professional and helpful. Concierge desk was very good helping out with any questions. Loved location near British museum and nice area close to Oxford St. and Soho. Very close to hop off on buses for getting around to tourist sites.


9.7 Excellent
Pros:The hotel exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful, clean and stylish, it even had fragrance oils in every corner so it smelled like heaven. The double bed room was relatively small but has everything one might need. Bathroom was big, beautiful and luxurious with boutique soup collection. The housekeeping was exceptional, the room was cleaned twice a day and little treats like chocolate was left for us once a day. Loved it!
7.7 Good
Pros:Service, location, history and character

Cons:Small 'standard' rooms, only just large enough for a couple with minimal luggage.
