Eat somewhere else!
The food in the Chinese restaurant was appalling - worse I've ever had. Breakfast was very messy. A manager was clicking his fingers whilst telling staff what to do and then he put a ile of clean dishes on top of spilt breakfast cereals and spilt milk. Looked very unappetising even though it tasted very good.

Overall the hotel was good. The walls were very thin in the room as we heard our neighbors “ringing in the new year” in their own special way (if you know what I mean).

Nice Hotel for the Price Paid.
The Copthorne Tara Hotel is a great hotel for the price you pay. The staff and service are professional and personable. They have a variety of food on their menu. The rooms are clean and have the basic amenities. My only issue with this hotel is the elevators. I've stayed at this hotel for four times now. Every time we are there one of the elevators is being repaired. Another one will go down at least once during my stay. This is not normally an issue, but the hotel caters to the tour/travel groups. This last time, it took about 30 minutes to get an elevator that was not full.

Great value 4 star but tired
I’ve stayed many times at this hotel. It’s great value by London standards and located conveniently for the underground, busses etc. in one of London’s better neighborhoods. On this occasion I had a semi renovated room, some of the rooms I’ve been assigned previously were tired at the very least but on this trip the room was ok. By London standards the rooms are a good size. At its price point the hotel is a good choice, it’s basic so don’t expect too much but relatively clean and reception staff are efficient, I will stay here again.

onvenient location, but just below 2 star quality
Location and close to metro station. Wall was not sound proofed. I could hear noice amd voices of next room. House cleaning people will just open the room door at any atime if the day with just knicking the door twice and immediately opening the door without givig enough time ti answer. Ciught me in the middle of changing my cloth. Very embarrassing situation. Made complaint to the front desk , since they kept doing almost every day. Mattress was very hard. No heater temperature control was available. Beds had wheels which kept moving.
