Beautiful old style hotel near Trafalgar Square
I ordered our 6 day stay at this hotel online. We were travelling with our 13 year old grandson and reserved a large room with kitchenette and a movable partition between our bed and the sofa that opened up into a double bed. I was so pleasantly surprised when we came into the room and it was exactly as shown in the photo--very large, lovely well appointed kitchenette (microwave, ceramic hob, fridge, dishes and cutlery for four, toaster, dish rack, towels and more). We were greeted upon arrival by Maria at reception who was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The style is old world--19th century, but very well kept and with all the needed conveniences. We were on the second floor and there is a large lounge there with free computers, newspapers every day. The hotel has a free laundromat (though we didn't use it, but this is great), a gym, a restaurant. The only complaint we had was our attempt to eat at the hotel's pizzeria and after being seated we were ignored completely by the staff--so we left. The location is terrific, right next to Trafalgar Square and the Charing Cross Underground station. There are a few restaurants on the street. We would definitely recommend it to our friends.
