Hotel disappointing, overall feel was that hotel was tired and in need of an upgrade. Have stayed in Mercure hotels before and they are usually excellent. Air conditioning units on last legs, we had to be moved to another room as first one not working. A member of staff did not seem knowledgeable in local area, asked her to direct me to a particular street and she gave me directions in opposite direction. We would not stay again

Thank you for your feedback. We have just finished renovating both our Reception area and Marco's restaurant, and our bedrooms are done on an ongoing basis, so we are surprised to hear you were disappointed. We're glad we were able to resolve your air-con problem, things to go wrong from time to time unfortunately. We do indeed have several new members of our Front Office team, and we can only apologise if you were mis-directed. We have a supply of free maps for guests, and can also print out directions from most websites upon request. Thanks for taking the time to share with us, we appreciate it.

Small Rooms

I stayed at this hotel on the 15th Jan and also 23 January. I had a very poor experience on the 15th as we had booked a standard double room and the room that we were given on the 7th floor was extremely small and would have probably have described this as a small double which I had not booked. the bathroom was also extremely small and the loo was in very small area and your knees were against the wall. I did manage to change rooms eventuall and did get a bit bigger room, however with a horrible few of a concrete wall. As I had booked this hotel again for the 23 Jan, I requested that we had a room overlooking the street. We booked in on the 23rd and to my amazement the room was of a reasonable sixe for a boutique hotel, however there again the bathroom very small and almost had to sit sideways on the loo. The window was extremely small, however when opening the curtains could not see out of the window as it was frosted. I would not stay at this hotel again as that in 2 very poor experiences. Disappointing.

Great place to stay

The hotel was a perfect location for any tourist. With buses five minutes away it was the best way to get around. The staff were really helpful and friendly and don't mind answering any questions you have about how to get to local attractions like civent garden. The room was clean and the bed was comfy though on wheels so it rolled if you leaned against it but was fine when sleeping. Overall it was a great hotel :)

Where did it get four stars?

The room was small, which is normal for London, but there was a lot of noise from the outside corridor. The staff were indifferent when this was brought to their attention. The shower would not get very hot and had a very wasteful large shower head which uses a lot of water for no good reason, and was particularly irritating as the bath wouldn't drain properly so you had to stand in cold water up to your ankles to shower. The breakfast was good.

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it. Lie most city centre hotels, unfortunately we can't offer all rooms with views, but there is so much to do in London, especially in our area!

Tolle Lage, in Gehdistanz zu Tube, Pubs, Restaurants. Sehr nettes und hilfsbereites Personal. Betten konnten entweder als Doppelbett oder Einzelbetten genutzt werden. Als Einzelbetten waren diese leider viel zu schmal. Der Wasserdruck in der Dusche liess leider auch zu wünschen übrig. Ansonsten war alles tiptop.

Hotelli lähellä metroasemaa

Pros: Sijainnista ja aamiaisesta.
Cons: Isompi huone 2:lle hlölle !
Location: Sijaitsee lähellä Russel Squaren metroasemaa. British Museum lyhyen kävelymatkan päässä. Paljon pikku ravintoloita lähistöllä.
Hotelli on lähellä Russel Squaren metroasemaa. Loistava aamiainen, ystävällinen ja avulias henkilökunta. Mutta huone kovin pieni !
