Nice large rooms as London hotels go .decor is basic but smart .the bed was comfy and the room was clean.the reception area and bar area is pleasant and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful , with the exception of the girl who booked us In .she could certainly do to go on a customer training course.this was an exception though , and I couldn't fault anybody else. The breakfast was a triumph .cooked to perfection and I would highly recommend this hotel.my wife and I had a lovely stay and would not hesitate to return. We booked theatre tickets and it was only a 15 minute walk to Piccadilly circus and theatre land.

The top location is the only things saving this place. The whole building and rooms are so dated. My credit card was also skimmed from behind the reception desk and then the staff put through another unauthorised huge charge (that was lucky caught by my bank)
