me and the boyfriend stayed here and found it to be ideally located to everywhere we wanted to go. rooms were quite small but had everything youd need for a weekend break, staff were friendly and helpful.
within walkin distance of many bars and restaurants and also tottenham court road station.
will definitely stay here again.
This hotel fulfills the most urgent needs for a stay in London. A bed, a bathroom (both very tidy), breakfast and , best of all, the Tottenham Court Road station just some steps away.
The staff is friendly and helpful.
The Hotel itself isn't a nice sight and the rooms are tiny.
The price is ok for a place in that location.
And there is Selfridges just across the street.
great location for an evening or weekend in London.
about 2 mins away from Tottenham Court Road tube. and similar distance to Oxford St.
Hotel wise you couldnt have asked for much more.
Check in was quick and easy, hotel room was small, but i was staying on my own so i was expecting it.
TV in the room, along with a lovely hot shower.
Breakfast was really top notch and you could really fill yourself up here with a mix of english breakfast and continental.
totally recomend this place for a couple or a single person staying in London overnight for a show or for the weekend shopper

This hotel is ideally located for a stay in London. It is located a few minutes from Tottenham Court tube station which is ideal to work your way round the city. The hotel isn’t expensive for the area in which it is located and you can often find last minute discounts. The rooms are quite small although contain everything you need and are very clean. The reception staff and concierge are very helpful should you need anything during your stay. The restaurant and the bar are ok although we tended to go out as everything was so nearby. Would stay at this hotel again.
I have stayed at this hotel a number of times through work, the hotel is a decent option if you need to stay in central London and can’t break the budget. The hotel is next to Tottenham Court Road tube station so it is easy to navigate around the city from the hotel. Soho and the west end are within walking distance of the hotel. Reception and the bar areas are good and drink prices aren’t too inflated. The rooms are very small but clean, for the price I don’t think you can complain too much about the room size. Staff are friendly.
I didn’t think this place was too bad at all for the money, particularly considering it’s location on the corner of Tottenham Court Road.
The room was small, but more than adequate for an overnight stay and it was clean, modern and comfortable. The only down-side was that we went in July on a particularly hot weekend and were torn between the having the window open with the continuous heavy traffic all night or frying.
Would go again.
The location of this hotel is fantastic. Just a 3 minute walk from Tottenham Court Road tube and therefore within walking distance of The Dominion Theatre and lots of shopping and restaurants.
Underneath the hotel is the largest sports and leisure facility in central London (25 metre pool and 50+ gym machines etc) with access for guests at only £4 per stay.
It is quite reasonably priced (especially if you look up the special offers available on a lot of “cheap room” websites) and has a couple of restaurants and a great bar - Lazy Dog Bar open til quite late (1-4am) most nights depending on number of customers in.
The service this last time I visited was 20times better than before. The reception staff were efficient and professional. The bar staff and concierges were great, very friendly and helpful.
The cheap/normal rooms are pretty cramped and a bit scraggy. The decor is a little under par in these rooms and the bathrooms not that great, with pretty useless, wimpy showers.
The newly built executive rooms, though, are quite good. The bathroms have a cool, sleek design with a great walk in power shower. The bed was quite comfy and the decor unobtrusive. Considering the fact that my room was directly over Tottenham Court Road the sound dampening was brilliant.
They do have internet connectivity in the executive rooms (they supply the cable): ½ Hour - £3, 24 Hours - £10 and 1 Week - £20. There is also wireless and a couple of internet kiosks available in the lobby.
The self service breakfast, however was very disappointing. Very school canteen like. The first morning I was there I gave myself half an hour before I had to leave, but the queue (yes, queue) to get in to the dining room was so long it would’ve taken 25 minutes just to get in. The next morning I gave myself an hour and even then, it took about 40 minutes all told. Usual English breakfast selection (not great quality and luke warm) and sweaty, tasteless cheese slices and that square, watery “value cooked ham” you get in cheap supermarkets. The bread rolls were stale and the croissants were cold. Tea, coffee and milk came from vending machines and was passable. The white formica tables were very close together and generally seated 8 so you had to push past people and tread on toes to get sat down.
They do offer a secure room behind the concierge desk in which to leave your luggage after you’ve checked out if you want to go sightseeing/shopping and don’t fancy lugging your bags around with you.
All in all, well worth it for the location, but unless it’s included, don’t bother paying for the breakfast option, there are plenty of cafes in the area where you’d get a better deal.
