Fantastic location

Posted 30-May-2016
Pros: Small quirky hotel with ample facilities, clean, friendly staff. Our room had a large balcony which was a welcome bonus and a lovely surprise.
Cons: Breakfast was limited
Location: You right in the heart of theatre land, convent garden, china town and many other attractions, fantastic!

The Library, Trafalgar Square, London

Posted 11-May-2016
Pros: The free drinks upon arrival; the eclectic styling throughout; the lovely room
Cons: The Continental Breakfast was fairly 'minimalist'.
The Library is a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of London. I stayed there while attending a conference on The Strand. It is (of course) set in a refurbished library, with quirky, eclectic styling and beautiful old-fashioned (but very comfortable) rooms.

Cons: Better coffee for breakfast.
We needed an overnight stay in central London and wanted somewhere reasonably quiet and at reasonable cost. This hotel was a pleasant surprise and ideal for our stay.

Graham and Michael stay at Library

Posted 11-Apr-2016 on Hotels
Breakfast awful. Cold croissant. No decent fruit. Poor selection. They must do something about this - they should at least provide a proper continental breakfast - you could do better at MacDonalds. Not recommended. This was the only thing that spoilt our stay - dinner in the restaurant was good.

Fun Place, Excellent Service, Great Location

Posted 12-Mar-2016 on Hotels
A great little place with quirky decor, wonderful service, and an amazing location in the middle of London. And yes, true to its name, there are books everywhere, and they let you borrow them whenever you like! A little noisy at night due to parties downstairs, but finished by midnight and honestly part of the fun. Will definitely book again.

trendy boutique hotel in heart of London

Posted 08-Mar-2016 on Hotels
trendy boutique hotel, interesting bar with library feel and lots of reading materials (hence the name). Room itself was quite small even though booked larger room online, bed very comfortable. Good for one or two nights' stay for single traveller; either on business or as a stop-over from other destinations. Very kind staff.

Great Hotel, Great Location

Posted 09-Feb-2016 on Hotels
Great location a couple blocks from the Leicester Station Tube stop and on the main strip by several theaters, a Starbucks, and Chipotle. Staff was very friendly and provided me with a complimentary drink voucher on check-in. The décor of the hotel was very unique with a spacious lounge/bar and really nice rooms. Only improvement would be to expand on the options offered at breakfast.
