From the minute we (my father and myself) arrived I felt that I had chosen the best possible hotel for our one-week London stay: very quiet, pretty street just a minute walk away from the underground by which within 30 minutes we could reach anywhere we wanted to go. The hotel is in a late 19th c. building, very pretty inside and outside, very helpful stuff, the greatest breakfast to start the day with, light, comfortable rooms, very good wifi!!! Plus, for us, the price for it all was a lot friendlier than many other hotels we had checked. I can only recommend it to everyone!

The hotel is in a nice area and very close to a metro station, though for bars/restaurants you’d need to explore a bit further. Overall a quiet area, nice old building and very reasonably priced for London! We were very happy with our stay. Obviously it’s an old building and not in pristine condition, but overall still very lovely
