    Small but comfortable

    Extremely tidy, practical, and functional. The staff bend over backwards to help with any little thing. The location can’t be beat — I walked to the British Museum in under half an hour, and just around the corner to Her Majest’s Theatre for Phantom. My room was quiet and windowless but I’m fine with small spaces; if you’re not traveling alone, you may feel cramped.

    There wasn’t a thing I didn’t like about this hotel. When I return to London I’ll book it again.

    Great location

    Awesome hotel in the cut of the busy Times Square area of London. Easy to get to by train from the airport as you just take it to Picadilly Circus station and walk 5 mins. Near all of the action and nightclubs. Clean. Great free wine and cheese happy hour. Wonderful gem of a hotel.

    Rooms are fairly small which didn't bother me as I am a single small female traveling alone but its not suited for couples or bringing children. Its a closet sized room.

    Too expensive

    Small rooms, but location ok

    It's not a room. It's a pad. But it's ok. The location is awesome.

    Great location, although comically small

    Perfect location; close to most things, and close to transportation for sights further out. Clean rooms and accommodating staff.

    Rooms are so small you will laugh. If you are traveling with someone else, you should be lovers. If you aren't, you will be by the end.

    Good value given the location

    Beds were very comfortable The 48" flat screen TV was a nice touch The design was nice Definitely a place to stay for short business travel or vacation, given the good location in Piccadilly. The complimentary wine n cheese every evening was nice and my group enjoyed it Located close to many many tourists spots, most with in walking distance or short bus ride. Staff was excellent and very attentive

    There is only one small lift and often crowded, therefore had to wait for it to come back down empty or you just took the stairs, a minor complaint, but would better if they had two lifts.

    Great Location & Staff

    The staff was great, especially Henri & Theo. The staff always went above and beyond to assist us! Location also was amazing; right next to Picadilly Circus, Trafalgar Sq, Leicester Sq, close to Parliament Sq, and Buckingham Palace.. Very centrally located

    The rooms were very small, but it worked out really well for us since we were there only for 3 days. Didn't bother us at all.

    Tiny rooms/bed, good location and nice wine and ch

    The location was great and the first time I stayed the hotel was cleaner. The room is really basic but bed was comfortable. I would never stay here with a second person. The room is good for 1.

    The have a small check in desk in the middle of the cafe which was crowded when I arrived. I have had to wait for longer than 10 minutes to check in and check out. They seem a little disorganized at the front and could use a proper reception area.

    Great location. Wine and cheese hour was a nice bonus

    TINY room. Barely enough room to move about. Shower head kept moving, it was like showering with a moving sprinkler. Water got into the room as a result because it was so small. The photos are misleading!!

    This is a no-frills property that trades off services for location. Smallest room I have ever stayed in over 30 years, 100+ properties and 5000 nights. The double room was 10x10 (feet) with no phone or closet. No laundry or room service Wake up service is a knock on the door. NOT FOR BUSINESS USE

    The location was excellent. The design and materials of the room are modern and quality. It was very clean and there was a clear focus on quality. The towels were as soft and huge as any hotel I've been in. the TV was huge relative to the size of the room. The bathroom fixtures were all very nice and the toiletries were also nice. If you are willing to trade a lot of space for a lower price (well, lower price for London) then this can be a value. It's also good if you plan not to spend much time in the hotel as it's comfortable for sleeping.

    The reason the rooms are affordable is because the rooms are tiny. Seriously in your bed spans the whole distance of a wall. There is no closet at all, and unless you get one of the larger rooms you'll have to put your luggage on the floor as there are no luggage racks. That's a bitt of a challenge because the "floor" is really the walkway from the bed area to the bathroom so you'll be walking around your own luggage. If you are a business traveler and need desk space it's very limited or absent. I had one room with a very small desk and another where I had to use the nightstand as a desk. The rooms are relatively dark even if the windows are open because they open to a narrow light well/courtyard. Perhaps there is more light on higher floor levels.
