This hotel was perfect for our city break. In terms of location, we couldn't have found a better hotel within our budget. Located two minutes walk from Lancaster gate tube station, it took us only 20 mins to get to the hotel from Victoria station. The central location meant we could get to all of the city's most famous attractions really easily using public transport. The big bus tour has a stop just around the corner and we were able to purchase our tickets from the concierge.
The staff were extremely pleasant and although we had to wait a couple of hours before checking in we were able to leave our cases with the concierge and grab a spot of lunch in Hyde park while we waited :)
The twin room was small, basic and very clean. Not a huge amount of room but was absolutely fine for us. After a busy day of shopping it was nice to be able to relax in our room with a nice cup of tea and Downton Abbey on the telly! As the hotel was on a busy road we were worried that there may be noise from the street below but as our room on the 8th floor this was not an issue.
We did not opt for breakfast in the hotel as we felt our money would be better spent treating ourselves to nice breakfasts and brunches elsewhere. However, I managed to catch a glimpse of the food on offer and there looked to be a nice selection of croissants, fruit etc. We ate in the hotel bar one evening opting for the traditional fish and chips which were delicious! The hotel had a good deal where fish&chips plus a glass of wine or pint of draught beer cost just under £13. Well worth it!
I would definitely recommend this hotel and would certainly stay here again myself.

The hotel is perfectly located for a trip to central London.
The rooms are however,tiny, functional, clean but nothing special and definitely not to the standard of Irish four star hotels. The interior of bathroom could do with a revamp job.
I would recommend this hotel specifically for location, the rooms are well below the equivalent Irish four stars, and just maybe not worth the hefty price tag.

Probably the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in!The bathrom was really pokey too and I could hear ever little noise in the rooms either side. I have no idea what warranted the four star rating! The reception area is nice enough but the bar prices are extortionate - £10.80 for a double vodka and coke but it is a good location.
