Hotel facility need to be updated
The hotel location is good. However, the hotel facility all looks old and tried. I booked the hotel for 7days, the first night I found the room (104) I given was without any central AC, and it seems they already knew that and could do nothing that night because they fully booked as I was told, and promised me would give me a new room next day. The guy from the front desk give me a fan Instead. Next day, I was able to get a room with AC unit installed above the door. The AC works, but as I noticed the shelves of the closet were covered with dusty and it hadn’t been wiped for a quite long time. They didn’t change our sheet for once during our stay. Also, the last night, I was found the shower faucet was malfunction and unable to adjust water temperature which is extremely hot. Called the front desk again at 10pm and finally got the issue solved around 11pm which made me extremely tried and frustrated since we had a early flight to catch on next morning! This hotel really not worth the money ($250/per day) I paid for.

I wanted to love it...
Great location. Bar staff was very friendly. Room was available early. Down hill from there though. Air conditioner was broken. I asked the front desk twice to look at it after we checked in. No one came either time. I called and asked reception once and housekeeping twice but no one came. The second time I called housekeeping they told me that maintenance had left for the day. The front desk then offered to changes rooms and provided a fan. Air in that room didn’t work to well but the fan helped. We made a lot of attempts to order room service but no one ever answered during operating hours. Restaurant seemed to always be closed during operating hours. So much potentially. Great location, building, and bar staff.

Good location. Decent free WiFi. Nice restaurant. Reasonably close to the Holborn Underground (Central & Piccadilly lines). Short walk to the restaurants, bars, and shops of the Seven Dials district. Good bar with good drinks and tasty bar food - an excellent spot to have a drink while using the WiFi to catch up with emails and messages from back home. Rooms are smallish, but certainly adequate.
