Basic, but adequate, with a good desk (often missing in hotel rooms) and excellent breakfast

Beside lamp didn't work, heat was extreme so couldn't sleep. Bathroom: Light didn't work and there's no window!! The shower room was *absolutely* disgusting!! and I say this having stayed in pretty awful hostels! Shower covered in empty shower gel packets (15+), toilet roll, hairs, and generally dirty. Seriously, it hadn't been cleaned for days. Rude staff who used tinder whist I tried to check in. Amazing location but I would NEVER stay here again. Honestly, the worst place I've ever stayed!


Very Central, in walking distance to lots of the sites and shows. Self service breakfast was good. Very clean and staff very helpful.

Breakfast was good with wide variety of selections. I was under the impression that wifi was only in limited areas, but was pleasantly surprised to have it in the rooms too. As a whole, the rooms and facilities were clean and simple. Location was great with walking distance to tube station and other tourist attractions. Overall was great, but not ideal for meeting people since the rooms are private individual rooms and there are no areas to lounge around.


I stayed twice in High Holborn. Once I was given a perfect room, with very clean bathroom outside. The other time the conditions were a bit worse. However, both stays were very good. A lot of privacy in the room, perfect space to work and rest. Quiet. Rich breakfast. Perfect location. 3 mins walking distance from the British Museum, pubs around, underground station, Sainsbury's, buses, etc. Everything that you need. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED!
