Nice location and hotel, but make sure you are not on the basement level. The bathroom was damp and smelly. Also the desk was pretty dusty, and some kind of goop on the nightstand.

Good hotel but way to expensive for what it offers. Our room was good but the bathroom was way too old. Flush did not work properly (you had to pump to get it flush) and tub did not close and open properly.

The only problem was that my (single) room was on the ground floor and when people were leaving with all their luggage very early in the morning it was very noisy.

No elevator and we had 57 steps up to go to our room. Nice and friendly staff and the location was perfect. An advice: eat breakfast out somewhere.

This is London, and given the impossibility of booking good accommodations at a reasonable price, this was a find, especially for the Gower Street area.

This was the nicest hotel that I have ever stayed in. The room was very nice and clean. The staff was great and very helpful with anything that I needed. The room came with free wifi as well as a free large bottle of water, which in london anything that is free is hard to find. I found that the location was perfect for the money and there was small shops, retail shops, food and other amenities located near by. The staff at the hotel were very kind and they treated everyone with respect and attention. Overall if I ever come back to London I will without any doubt stay at this hotel again if I have the chance to.
