    Great location.

    Very convenient to all locations of the city. U-tube station is a 5 minute walk. Abundant restaurants including a French eatery serving delicious crepes.

    Pros: Location.

    Cons: Rooms are little dated as well as the hallways.

    Location: Located in central London. Russel square just across the street. Coventry Garden is a 10-15 minute walk. Lots of street performers there.

    Nice hotel in a convenient location

    We were only in the hotel from about 10:30 PM and I had to leave at 5:00AM. Check in and out was easy, room was comfortable, clean and quiet and it was in a great location for museums and theaters. Price was also good.
