Great location, easy check-in.
Bar selection limited and drinks overpriced. Bellman also inflated cost of Healthrow Express and cab to Paddington Station in an effort to sell car service to Heathrow.
This hotel is in the heart of London. If you stay here you are close to everything. I was only in London for 2 days and wanted a Hotel that I would spend minimal time on travel getting to London's main attractions. If you are on a budget this hotel is one of the best available. If is a bit dated but I was in London to see the sights so I did not need my hotel to be state of the art.
If you are traveling in the summer be aware that this hotel has no air conditioning. At least the room I stayed in had none.
One of the best locations in London for Tourists.
Small rooms, not many amenities.
Perfect location for tourists Good for the price
I wish they had a shuttle from/to Heathrow
Excellent location, very friendly staff, nice clean rooms.
This is the best location in London, steps from Covent Garden, an easy walk across the Waterloo Bridge, convenient to theaters. Thanks to recent renovations, rooms are contemporary and comfortable; staff is friendly and helpful. I have been staying here off and on for more than 25 years!
The food continues to be marginal at best, and not a good value for the money. Fortunately, there are many good and reasonably-priced restaurants nearby.
I liked the location, and the clean, bright room that had good bathroom space and a reasonable work surface. Similarly priced rooms in London are often very cramped and/or quite worn down. a really nice (and necessary, in our case) feature of the room is the sliding solid wood shutters that completely seal off outside light. This was my third or fourth stay at the sph.
The weatherstripping around the windows was completely shot and ineffective, so if we had the shutters open, a powerful draft whipped through the room. There was a cold snap in London at the time, so the result was that we couldn't open the shutters and curtains to enjoy daylight. Also, as our room was over The Strand, it was very noisy at night. However, I would definitely stay again
the hotel is so close to the theatres on the Strand and Covent Garden, it makes it so convenient.
There was nothing I didn't like but thought the £8 charge for an ice bucket from room service was a bit steep!
Staff was really friendly and ready to help.
location was excellent
The room should be renewed as soon as possible. They sold the London of map. It should be free of charge.
Very central location, good value for money
The room was just big enough and was practical. The bathroom was excellent. TV was provided.
I would like to be able to make more than 2 cups of tea or coffee! I take sugar and that was in limited supply.
