        Poor!”
        Hotel was extremely dated felt like a through back to the 90’s. Rotten bathroom window, chipped paintwork, unsecure bedroom door, dated decor, fake tiled ceiling that you get in an 1960’s office (which all were loose) terrible slow lift that’s tiny! A Xmas party that went in till 1am that sounded like it was in room next door, staff completely uninterested and couldn’t care less. Could go on and on it’s awful! Stayed here before about 4 years ago and it was ok then not now, would pay a bit more next time and stay at double tree or grange Holborn down the road!!

        My wife and I stayed here and loved it. The highlight was really the incredible staff! They consistently went over-the-top to ensure we were happy (whether it was to help us call a taxi, dive directions, etc.). I would stay here and recommend it to friends just given how great they were.

        Fair, clean, comfortable room”
        Cozy room, clean. Central location. Shower was good. Bed was comfortable. Front desk staff were very kind, friendly but not knowledgeable. I asked two questions and, for front desk staff, I received less than satisfactory answers. 1- I asked where to grab a hop on hop off bus and i was told just down the street there are a bunch of sellers - that was inaccurate. and 2- I asked how to get to gatwick via train and the front desk staff had no clue. To be fair they googled it for me and printed the directions, but initially had no idea.

        Good Location.... Otherwise Rather Disappointing”
        Location for Euston Station and West End is great as all withing 20 mins walking distance. However rooms are very disappointing and rather tired. Very squeaky floor boards, cheap fittings throughout en-suite and the door looked like something out of the 60/70's only cheaper !!, The flat-screen TV is very old hat with no channel info or programme guide, Mould in the shower and a shower tray that overflows and taps that are deafening when run . Pictures of the room on the website seem to be significantly larger than what you actually get. Breakfast is a whopping £12 per head. We have stayed here several times though but not sure we will again and would not recommend it to anyone I liked.

        A well-informed staff to assist a first timer traveler that drives into London would be a good impression on the establishment including on vehicle drop-point (for luggage), parking and congestion fee (in London). I was circling the neighbourhood searching for a suitable parking and/or parking arrangement, with minimal information provided by the staff. Apart from that, the service by the Hotel is excellent.

        Not worth for money, tiny rooms, staff needs a bit of a smile on a face.”
        Rooms are tiny. The tiniest you have seen probably. Double room, and we couldn't walk with 2 suitcases in there, and I'm not mentioning other bits and pieces on the floor. The bed is tinier than a double one. Felt like 2 couches joined and could just barely fit 2 people. No aircons, no scales at the reception. Staff wasn't friendly and we have dealt with at least 3 different people. Location - is alright, about 15 mins walk to Covent Garden and an underground near by as well. If it is on a good deal I might consider for a short stay, otherwise it's a no come back.

        Very friendly & welcoming upon check in, but this is an old unloved hotel which thistle have put new curtains on. Room was unbearably hot upon arrival & even after turning the radiator down and opening the door to the cold en suite it didn’t get to a comfortable overnight temperature. Not up to the thistle brand and needs a thorough refurbishment to warrant over £150 a night

        The location is good being just 5 minutes from British Museum and less from Russell Square underground. However, the room was small with just a double bed. The shower had seem better days with not more than a trickle to wash and little control over the temperature. The room could do with modernisation and in my view is not 4 stars. The staff on the other hand were accommating and helpful. Overall, a disappointment and quite an expensive one

        Noisy ”
        Although ear plugs were in the room, it was incredibly noisy. This was due to the room being on the main road side in addition we could hear every footstep from those in rooms above us. We were in room 302 on the third floor. We asked the bar staff what time they closed the bar before we went to see our show, their response was 12 (midnight) so when we arrived back at the hotel at just gone 11 we were very disappointed to be told the bar was shut. I'm annoyed because we figured a night cap into our plans. Had we known they would shut early we would have stayed out and grabbed a drink elsewhere. Bizarrely enough we were able to order drinks via room service!

        Location, Staff, cleanliness
        The hotel was in an excellent location whereby stores, restaurants, grocery shops were just outside the hotel entrance. We did not dine in the hotel because of that. everything was within walking distance. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room and the bathroom were clean, but the room was very small and the beds as well. We really liked our stay in the hotel but I believe its overpriced considering its a 3 star hotel and the very small room.

        Perfect location”
        Clean room, helpful staff, good location to get around London. Small room and extremely basic, which for the price you pay is a little too basic..
