Perfect location with comfy rooms!
Location, Customer Service and Room Comfort
Colleague and I stayed at the hotel for one night and we had a pleasant stay. Room was tidy and comfortable, as being in the very central of London I wasn't expecting a large room, my colleague was saying her room was a bit too small, but I had a bigger room so I don't have problems with the size of the room, but if I had someone else to share room with, the space might be a bit too tight. Room was really clean and bed was comfortable. Although my room was right next to the main road but it was not noisy for me. Customer service was great, and in fact I actually booked the wrong date for both of my rooms and they managed to solve things out for me without any hassle! Staffs were all friendly and helpful! Location is the best thing about this hotel, with China town right just across the road and Soho behind, it's the perfect location for any visitors to stay. I was shopping down Oxford Street and can always drop off bags and then go back out without have to travel far. I was party out until 3am and didn't have to take cab home or had to travel far, I could just walk back to the hotel and crash in to my bed, I had a great time in London and with this hotel! Price is not cheap but it's not super high compare to other premium hotels around the area.

Worth for money
Good location, near tube and fast check in and out
Room is not spacious somehow for just a night there, it's worth for money. In the centre of Chinatown,London where surrounding by many shops & restaurants and attractive places are within walking distance.

Easy access theatres, shopping, sightseeing
Position, cleanliness and friendly efficient staff
My friend and I were on a 3 day break. We wanted somewhere as a base that was within easy access of theatres, sightseeing and shopping and was spotlessly clean. This hotel filled the bill in all respects. The room was on the small side, but hey ho, it's only somewhere to sleep and for London prices you can' say it's expensive. The bed was very comfortable but I found the pillows rather hard. The hairdryer is a full size one, not one of the usual travel type ones usually provided. The only slight downfall was the noise at night but because of the hotel's position this was to be expected. They do provide earplugs if this would inconvenience you.I woke up 2 nights about 2 am and all was quiet. The reception staff were efficient and the concierge a very willing helper. You are also able to drop your luggage off earlier than check in time which was really helpful on our first day and on the day of departure too. Altogether a good experience. We will certainly stop again on our next trip
