A quiet and comfortable choice in Bloomsbury, within walking distance of the British museum, Covent garden, London review bookshop etc. Near Russell square and holborn tubes. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this hotel, booked as an integral part of a theatre visit. We were met by a very pleasant lady at reception and given an upgrade to a junior suite. The hotel room was nice and clean with a very comfortable king sized bed. The bathroom had a bath and shower. Earplugs...

I bit dated hotel with no atmosphere at all. I found the room OK but needs updating. The bar is souless - For the price i thought it was very poor value against other Central London hotels. The whole hotel needs upgrading

I stayed here with two colleagues for a company day and night out. The rooms were very good, everything you could need. Staff were friendly and helpful and the location was good as we could walk to Covent Garden and theatre land. Would definitely stay again.

The hotel is smaller than many Americans might expect. But, It is a great little London hotel with a great staff and so close to everything in the West End! The Piccadilly line at Holborn station will go directly to Heathrow.

I stayed here for 4 nights while in London for work. The hotel is just a 5 minute walk from Holborn tube station. Every member of staff I encountered were really nice and helpful.

I stayed here last night as the location was ideal, as we were going to the theatre, the hotel is clean and the staff very friendly but that's it. We were given a room at the front of the hotel, the noise was ridiculous and when you see ear plugs supplied by the hotel by your bed you know it...
