My partner and I stayed here for Valentine's night. The price we got through Travel Republic was exceptional - £165 for a night in a 5* central London hotel is extraordinary!

The hotel was excellent. Our room was very good, and the bathroom in particular was brilliant (heated floor and TV by the bath!). Throughout the hotel all the furniture and fittings were top class, and the staff was friendly, polite and helpful across the board. The bar was great, and the barman there went out of his way to recommend cocktails based on our preferences.

Overall, we were very happy with this hotel and its staff. Five star luxury hotel for the price of a standard hotel - can't be bad!
Top Tip: Excellent central London location, and particularly handy for the Playhouse Theatre.

Spectacular! My daughter and I spent one night in this beautiful Hotel. The room was incredibly beautiful and the staff professional and pleasant . We walked into the hotel via a kind smiling doorman and walked into our warm room as smooth radio played in the background! It's within a few minutes walking distance to the West End where we saw two musicals , we ate in Old China Town and strolled by the Thames and took photographs in Trafalgar Square.... Magical!
