Decent hotel-great location
Clean, small rooms. You don't need a palace- you're not going to be inside with so many top spots well within walking distance. Friendly staff, cheerful and professional. Decent breakfast- loads of places to eat nearby. Drury Lane's got the bars, the British Museum's got the culture. Not cheap, but worth it.

Fair 4.0
Substandard, wouldn't recommend
The location of the hotel and the shower head were both great. Other than that, though, I wouldn't recommend this hotel. Our room was up and down stairs and up and down again, so if you're carrying luggage, you need help and also help navigating to your room. The room must have been situated too far away from the router to get wifi as there was no signal at all. For us, this is a must have since we don't want to use roaming data while traveling out of country. We had some difficulty with the lights, and the front desk wasn't helpful other than asking if we had inserted our card (of course, we had). We later found a switch beside one of the beds that had to be switched on for two of the lights to work (the others worked without it, so that seemed quite random). The room was tiny, which is expected in London, but they had crammed so much furniture into it that it was difficult to get around the bed, especially if you had to get up in the dark in the middle of the night. As problems popped up in the room and when we needed to have our luggage carried out, nobody was answering the phones at the front desk so we had to navigate our way there to speak to someone personally a couple of times. After staying at other, similarly priced hotels even more central in London, this was definitely substandard. The manager (Sylvia, I believe) was very nice and offered us a complimentary breakfast, but it was really too little too late.

A reception queue due to a problem with previous family but ours was easy and quick. Room comfortable though no milk left and had to ring twice for supplies to arrive. Fine otherwise.

Very good sized room which was a surprise for a London hotel. Helpful staff Good lighting in room. Only complaint was the bathroom was exceptionally cold despite an electric towel rail which made no difference to the temperature of the bathroom (unfortunately)
