Great Location, but No Heat
The Mercure is in a great location close to the British Museum and two tube stations. We walked almost everywhere. The first night there was no hot water and the heat never worked throughout the trip--in January. They gave us a space heater, which helped, but it's kind of ridiculous to have this issue at these prices. As every review has mentioned, the room was small, so small it was hard to get our luggage out of the way. That said, the hotel is clean and modern, the staff is friendly, and the wi-fi is good.

Hotel staff very friendly
Hotel staff could nit have been nicer, our front desk go to person was Nickolay. He was very helpful and concerned. The condition of the hotel was good, not high end in the bathroom, but fine. We had a small refrigerator which didn't work as well as I might like. Tea and coffee available. The breakfast staff was a bit pushy. The hotel brochure said that breakfast was served until 10:30 but they were put out when we arrived at 10 and another group at 10:15 were told basically sorry, not sorry, we stopped serving 20 minutes ago. Just a communication issue needing to be resolved I think. The area is great, you can walk to several of the theaters (about 20 min or so). Lots of restaurants nearby as well.

Convenient & Charming Hotel
Love this hotel! Located just a 10 minute walk from the British Museum. The on/off sightseeing bus stops right in front of the hotel. I will say that next time I book there I will ask for a queen bed. The double was a bit smaller than expected by US standards. Great breakfast, we had it included and I would certainly recommend. The staff is very accommodating and professional, we found them to be more than helpful. They arranged transport to the airport which was 60 pounds, half that of a taxi. The area is full of great restaurants to enjoy and the theater district is about a 25 minute walk. We consider ourselves fortunate to have chosen this hotel and will be back again.
