Good location near Russell Square & Euston, mile or so to theatreland. Entrance and lounge/bar/restaurant look nice. Reception service not actually rude, but not welcoming or interested. Room was disappointing for the price, small, no view, and a bed on castors that moved when you sat on it! Bathroom however was better sized and clean. Breakfast was good, and public rooms quite nice to sit in. Not sure I'd go again, but expect most similarly priced central London hotels may be little different overall. If staff had been more helpful though I might have tried asking for a nicer room.

While numerous reviews have been written by others already, we wish to emphasize a couple of points. If you are most interested in wonderful London and simply want a decent place to sleep the "Tavi" is your place. Very, very few hotels are as well situated to the Tube, Central London and amenities in the neighborhood as this hotel. Remember, this is London where everything is expensive. The Tavi is very popular with Europeans and Brits not to mention others. Not many other places where you can get a double with breakfast for 80 quid or thereabouts. We have stayed at this place numerous times over the past 20 plus years and will continue to do so in the future. Modest but perfectly fine.

I've stayed in this hotel quite a few times now as it's cheap for central London and the location is handy from the mainline stations. Overall it's great value. There is plenty of room from improvement though - it's a noisy hotel, the breakfast can be poor (although you get plenty of it!) and the decor is a little dated. However at £64 a night what do you expect? The Presidents (owned by the same group) down the road is a little better.

I stayed here with friends, purely for convenience, as we were booked in to bloomsbury lanes which is in the hotel basement. For the money, the hotel is fine. Reception and bar downstairs looked very promising, but rooms were totally disappointing. Need a total overhaul to be frank. They blanket/bedspread combo had seen better days, to put it mildly, and the room was very small, and boiling hot. We were told not to open the windows as it was windy. Hmmm. The television in our room didn't work.The bathroom was tiny also. The shower was scarily strong and hard to get the right temp. The towels provided were thin, tatty and far too small. There was no hairdryer or shampoo provided, just nasty budget soap. Staff on Reception were pleasant enough, and breakfast was adequate. All in all, it was fit for our purpose. Don't book it if you plan on spending much time in the room.
