I am writing this from the very hotel I am reviewing on Day four of my 14 day vacation to the UK. From the postage stamp sized room, to the lazy staff to the incredibly expensive on-site restaurant and paying 15 pounds a DAY for non-wireless Internet (that is no misprint), it is clearly evident the owners and management are out to maximize profit and minimize their expenses. I would only recommend this hotel to a person traveling alone, since the bed is not sufficient for two. The location to the tube is nice, but since I have checked in, I have not had a single good night's sleep. There is a major office buidling being constructed next door and with the paper thin walls, you WILL be woken up when the construction day begins or when you next door neighbor makes ANY noise. Also, the bed is incredibly hard and uncomfortable, and the pillows seem to have been made from the same material as the bed. If you are traveling alone, are on a budget, and don't plan to be in the room much (nor sleep well) then I might consider this place, otherwise look elsewhere as London is full of hotels.

It was okay for the price, but I wouldn't spend anything too past your budget for this place. The location was the best part of this hotel. The rooms were small, windy, and the maids did not do a very good job in keeping them clean from day to day. The hotel staff were pretty rude and definitely did not go out of their way to help you with anything. There was no charm or warmth to it, really just a place to leave your stuff and go. I wouldn't stay here again, but it served it's purpose while I was there.

Stayed at this hotel 30 yrs ago (different hotel name). After reading reviews, requested refurbished,inside room. Room was very clean and quiet-never heard people next door! Didn't eat at hotel due to expense, but discovered Pret A Manger nearby which had reasonably priced, good food! Tried food at a few local pubs-not impressed! Found it very easy to get around-can walk to Tottenham Court Road to catch buses, or Great Portland St. for tube. Even though you're not in the heart of London, we enjoyed the peaceful, safe area, and felt fine walking around at night!
Great location in quiet neighborhood within 2 blocks of regent's park (great for runners and strolling) and a dozen very good restaurants. closest tube stops are great portland (2 ...
Great location in quiet neighborhood within 2 blocks of Regent's Park (great for runners and strolling) and a dozen very good restaurants. Closest tube stops are Great Portland (2 blocks) and Warren Street (6 blocks) (Regent's Park stop closed thru Jul 07). Clean, modern rooms, but a bit cramped, esp the bathroom. You can brush your teeth while sitting on the toilet! Front desk forgot wakeup call. Internet access expensive at ?15. Would stay here again, esp if traveling alone
