A few online reviewers complain about the noisiness of rooms facing Gower Street, but otherwise guests praise the property as a reasonably priced jewel in central London. Full-English breakfasts are included in the rate. Single, double, triple, quad, and quint (5-person) rooms are available.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes, in the public areas and most rooms.

Thanks for Sharing Reader Adriana saluted this hotel that's located next to pretty Regent's Park because it offers "more of a local atmosphere than other better known hotels" and because it has rooms "large enough to accommodate" parents with two or three children comfortably. She liked the "hearty English breakfast," which is included in the price, and the conveniently located major subway station nearby.
