I loved the location and convenience for transport hubs. I loved the building and the room. Comfy bed as well. But, we had a lot of problems with condensation on the window sill, literally puddles of water every day and in the bathroom where the mirrors etc were steamed up most of the time the bathroom was in use.
The hotel is quiet but do avoid eating in the pub on a Friday evening as you can't get in the door for the weight of people enjoying their start to the weekend drink. We didn't pay for breakfast, we found cafes nearby that did a nice one at a third of the price.

Excellent hotel for visiting Central London - 2 blocks from Westminster and Parliment. Quick visit on a business trip and spent a few hours touring the area. The rooms are reasonable in size - for an older downtown hotel. The bathroom is large - but the shower does get on th floor - needed to use towels to keep the water down. The pub attached is very convenient and offers a nice selection of ales.

We're staying in this hotel 5/11/11 for 5 nights.
Room was clean and large enough. Manager on reception was kind and service was not bad. Also the hotel has a great location.
But some things don't let me to stay there again.
First one is door-key troubles. Every evening we had to change our electronic keys because they could not unlock the room door. I don't know now what is the trouble was but we was very annoyed.
Second one is terrible noise at night. Imagine you're sleeping and neighbor's door has breaking by hammer! The action continued about a half an hour then I waked up finally and went to ask what's happend? Yeah, stuff broke the door because neighbor couldn't enter into his room. Great?

Nice small hotel over the pub - where breakfast etc is served ( fantastic choice ). Well furnished , smart rooms with new shower, within easy reach of Paliament ( arrange a tour on a mon or tues - its free and stunning!), We walked from Walerloo ( 30 mins) and to Trafalgar square ( 15 mins) . The staff were helpful ( we changed rooms as there was a noisy air con unit below our first one at the back ), but the air con in the room we were able to turn off !
Note that breakfast is extra tho.

We chose the Sanctuary House primarily for its location, but the comfort of the rooms and the friendly, helpful staff really made our stay enjoyable. It is literally 1 min. from Westminster and 2 min. from Big Ben. The room featured the most comfortable bed we have had during several trips to Europe. The real highlight is the on-site Pub, which serves wonderful food in a great atmosphere. Stella in the Pub is a gem --- incredibly helpful with sightseeing tips, plus great service! Highly recommend.
