    Am satisfied with everything. Got a quiet room like I requested and slept very well even with windows open. There is a/c but didn't use. Room space is more than adequent for one person.

    The location is great and the rooms were impeccably clean, especially the bathroom. Two free bottles of water were provided each day, along with nice mix of coffee/cocoa/cookies.

    I had booked two rooms for four people in total. When I arrived, two of my friends had already checked in. The man at the front desk said that there was no room for me because Booked.net made a mistake. I had all of my paperwork from Booked.net so I know all was done correctly. He spent more time trying to explain how he knew Booked.net was the wrong party instead of helping us resolve the situation. Finally, he got to the real point at hand-my room, and he had found a room for me although made a point that somebody checkin in on Saturday night would have no room. My friends' room was definitely a handicapped-accessible room due to low height/small size of sink and the weird shower that was basically the entire floor of bathroom. However, the man at the desk kept insisting their room was just like all other rooms. Additionally, our room had no window and the wall air conditioning unit was not functioning properly.

    On checking in, the staff were very polite and helpful. Very smart by appearance and always smiling. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean and despite being on a main road the room was fairly quiet. The breakfast had a good variety and choice and also good value. The restaurant staff again were very smart, polite and helpful. The location was excellent as it was only a short walk to the underground and two stops to get to Leicester Square for the theatre. Also just around the corner is the British Museum, a must visit. Overall I would definitely stay here again.

    Location is fantastic as was the welcome, comfort, cleanliness and beautiful refurbishment of the hotel. We were warmly welcomed by all on arrival, this included a cleaner in the corridor who stopped to welcome us, so nice ! Our twin room was small but perfectly appointed with lovely modern fixtures, I had asked for a quiet room away from the road, this was honoured perfectly. Absolutely no negatives, loved it and would stay again without question.

    I quite enjoyed my stay here. It was quiet, clean and the desk clerks were polite. I selected the hotel because it was a good quality hotel in the location I needed and I expected good service.

    My plans changed and I asked the clerk to cancel a reservation I had in a few days' time. I confirmed the cancellation with the desk clerk when I booked out of the hotel. I was unpleasantly surprised to be charged for a night's accommodation as a no show. I was told that their policy was that their staff could not cancel on line bookings and, because I was not told by their staff to cancel the booking on line, they charged me for the no show. They refused to discuss this, claiming it is their policy even though the reservation booking only states that cancellations 'can be' changed on line, not 'must be'. Their attitude has been hostile and very unpleasant. So be warned. This hotel will hide behind their policy when they make a mistake or mislead you and you will pay the cost. Nice, easy way for them to make money on customers who live overseas and can't easily take them to court.
