    We enjoyed our weekend stay here very much. The hotel itself in on a quiet street, about a 2 minute walk from the British Museum. We found the walk to Covent Garden and St Martin's Theater to be very easy. Inside the hotel is immaculate....More

    Stayed in January for one night theatre trip. Hotel very pleasant and staff excellent. Breakfast very good. Left pair of reading glasses, which were sent on immediately upon discovery. Recommend this hotel

    We stayed here for two nights, our room was on the top floor, very simple but very cosy. This is a quaint friendly hotel with lots of character and charm, as it's an old (but very well maintained) building expect a few creaking floor boards...More

    There is no parking right outside the hotel, but there is underground parking available approx 3 minutes away from the hotel. If you show them your receipt that you stayed at the hotel, you only have to pay £15 for 24 hours... More
