The hotel is in an excellent location. The hotel is an older building that is very well taken care of. Across the street from the metro (tube). Within walking distance to lots of places to eat and shop. We were a family of 4 (2 teens) and the kitchenette room was perfect. The sound proofing was excellent, we didn’t hear any of our neighbors. The self service laundry here was amazing. The double bed was super cozy, made it hard to get out of bed early in the mornings. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Positives: Few steps from Trafalgar square. Historic awesome building. Negatives: no fridge in a room, the breakfast is exactly the same every morning with only mediocre selection. No international (US, European) power outlets in the room but adapters are kindly available from the reception desk.
