    Staff friendly

    The noise! - Room was next to lift shaft & sounded like a tram was passing next to my head whilst trying to sleep. Cleaners started hoovering room above at 8.10am on a Sunday morning. 'Double' room was two beds pushed together with huge gap down centre of bed - extremely uncomfortable!

  • Family with children

    I loved the old world decor and architecture of the Hotel very much. The location is also excellent because it is not far away from two underground stations, bus stops and several museums. There are also a lot of shops and bistros/ restaurants within walking distance.

    The hot water for the shower had to be switched on after we arrived. The electricity to our plug points tripped because someone wanted to use their airconditioner next door. The staff was very helpful in attending to both problems.

    The staff were excellent. Very helpful and always smiling. Bedding and towels were very clean. Ideal situation for Wimbolden and the city. Very nice area of London

    The lift was out of action for the whole of our stay. The staff were very helpful but it still meant an unpleasant climb esp as my friend and I had bad knees and other health problems. The first room we were given didnt have a window and a huge step up to the bathroom. The carpet was very stained and there were no accesible pointsfor any electrical appiances. For the kettle we had to use the extension cable with 4 sockets and place it on the chair as the kettle cable was too short. This was extremely dangerous esp as it was meant as a family room.. We asked to move to another room which was better but on the 3rd floor and the TV didnt work . The porter couldnt fix it ans said he would look at it the next day but we were leaving| I will be writing to headoffice as I feel we should have been offered a discount but we realised the staff we unable to offer this.

    The location only.

    It was not the standard advertised. Paid extra for de luxe room bed was hard, zip and link uncomfortable. Only 1 bedside table and lamp and air conditioning a hose stuck out of the window

    The reception staff were very helpful and polite. The room was ok and the bathroom was clean. I did not expect the standard I received for the money I paid so it was a nice surprise.

    The bed was a little uncomfortable and the pillows were lumpy but overall it was good.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Very good and friendly service. Room spotlessly clean. Very good breakfast for £7. Good value at £99 but a bit run down for list price of £200. Old fashioned a/c in bedroom. Bathroom tired. Excellent quiet location

    Location, service

    Room (408) too small, it should be illegal to permit hotels to offer such tiny rooms especialy to relatively big guys like me! Also, despite the extremely limited space I had an airco unit and an extra heater so that it was impossible to stay in the room and rest. And the bathroom was freezing. Needless to say, I had to position myself sideways in order to get into the shower. It was all mini size.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Staff were polite and friendly. Room was clean and of the expected standard. Breakfast was good

    Rooms a little dated, shower not very good. The taxi I ordered via reception which was very expensive when compared to a black cab to cover the distance! Nice car though!

    Breakfast facilities were good.

    Friendly reception; excellent position; convienence.

    Small single room; low-pitch sound in early hours.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Location was great. Baggage storage convenient. 24hrs good.

    Rooms smaller than I thought and it was noisy.

  • Older travelers
    3.2

    They moved us to a less noisy room for the second night

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    comfortable and clean and good value for money when discounted

    the shower took over 5 minutes to warm up and if you chose to have the breakfast then have the continental as we had the full english and was well overpriced at £!2.00 and was quite poor quality.
