3 reviews of The Astor Court Hotel in English
The location was good
The receptionist was rude and disinterested. I went to the aid of a woman with a child and pram trying to get through the awful narrow double door entrance as the receptionist totally ignored her struggle.
Check-in took 45 minutes as I apparently hadn't paid, though this was not indicated when card details were taken and the booking made on the internet.
The room was freezing cold as the window wouldn't close.
The toilet was separate from the bathroom, had no heater, window blind or sink and had a noisy chain flush.
The room was intended to be double to sleep single. The two single beds were pushed together which would have been ok had one not been 3 inches higher than the other. The bed had a few sheets and a musty, stained blanket. I was so cold I used all the towels and my coat on the bed and went to bed in my clothes
The only place I could get a phone reception in the whole hotel was on the outside step or hanging out of my window.
The shower was one of those cheap, connected to the taps jobs, so it took 10 minutes to get it to an acceptable temperature. and the shower head was so covered in dirt/limescale that the spray went in every direction.
The furniture and decor were... interesting. Certainly in need of a drastic upgrade and a re think of the lay out.
No air con or other form of ventilation; this was irrelevant however as I couldn't close my window.
The inability to close the window meant I could hear everything outside, including the work going on in the building site close by
The hotel is clearly sat on top of a tube route as the building rumbled and groaned every few minutes. For ground floor residents this must have been a nightmare
The person above me got up and walked around their room for 30 minutes at 4.15am. How do I know this? Because their floorboards creaked so loudly they woke me up. The same happened again at 6.15 so I gave in and got up.
This was a horrible experience all round and I left for a seminar having had very little sleep. I would NOT recommend this hotel and will NOT be returning to it myself.
An odd little place, not what I would expect from a hotel, but with a seperate bathroom, cupboard and toilet, it was interesting! The bed was in an alcove therefor was quite cosy, and the TV had loads of channels, although a bit too far away to read for me while lying in bed :-) It’s a little dated, with the swivelly chair being too low for the desk, but it was clean and warm, and the bath was HUUUUUGE! The lift had 2 doors, one on the outside you operate yourself, but it only goes between the room floors and the lobby, not into the basement where the food is served. Definitely NOT one for the wheelchair users or infirm! Each room also had a doorbell outside! Perculiar!
The staff were polite, and the breakfast was ok, but with fake coffee and few choices of juice or cereal, I would put that aspect on a par with a Holiday Inn Express.
I would stay there again as it was a short walk from Great Portland Street and Oxford Circus underground, and there were quite a few restaurants around including a very interesting French place called Villandry. I ate at Chez Sainsbury’s this week though.
The location of this hotel couldn’t have been any better, around a 5-10 minute walk from Oxford Street and Regent Street!
The rooms were better than expected. With a bathroom, separate toilet, two twin beds, wardrobe and sitting area.
The reception staff were very helpful and provided us with tourist information ie maps and brochures etc.
Continental breakfast was served each morning ie toast, croissants, cereal etc.
Overall the hotel is great value for money and in a perfect location (especially for shopping!)
