Stayed here for a week while visiting London from the U.S. Loved the hotel. Loved the location, we were walking distance from so many great places! The bed was a little harder than I'm used to and the room a little smaller than I am used to but overall we still slept well.||Staff was friendly and housekeeping was on point, we were very happy with the service.||Breakfast at the hotel was OK but I would recommend going to one of the many restaurants nearby instead.

I love this place. The room was huge by London standards. Everything was clean. We went in winter, so it was very cold, but our room was nice and warm. The towel warmer in the bathroom was a nice plus. I appreciate the free mini bar. I didn't have to constantly worry about going out to buy bottles of water. It is located right next to a Costa Coffee and in the middle of tons of shops, restaurants and fast food places. Everyday, before we would head up to the room to end our day, we would check out a few of the shops nearby. It was also super easy to get to the tube or busses as there are stops in Piccadilly and at the square. Thank you for a great vacation!
