Great location, just a short walk to the British Museum & Soho! Also very close to the Tottenham Court tube stop, so it's a good base for exploring London. The staff here was so friendly! And they light candles throughout the lobby at night that smelled AMAZING! I wish I could've bought one.

Dear Katie, We are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us. Our location is indeed a great one but we also love the fact that we are not close to a main road, meaning the Hotel itself remains quiet. The candles are indeed amazing. I also have good news for you, we sell them! Would you perhaps like...

Everything you'd expect really, nice food, interior and staff. I drove and parking was a faff , the car park is down the road from the hotel ( no valet ), and is extremely tight and smells awful. No hot buffet at breakfast but food was good. My room was tiny and too hot!
