Because our room had enclosed atrium on both sides, it was virtually silent — assuring a sound night's sleep. There's even a jewel of a bar downstairs. The location...

Overall a fantastic experience. Walkable distance to the theatre and offered a great nights sleep in a lovely room. The price isn't just reflected on the facilities, it is the service provided as well. All staff were polite and courteous from check-in to check-out.

We've stayed at this hotel before and this time it was a Christmas present to ourselves. The hotel was beautifully decorated and the staff as friendly and welcoming as always.

Stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year. The hotel itself is well located, within 100m of the British Museum and Tottenham Court Station. The hotel is well furnished, room was clean as was the bathroom. There were some good features in the room two, including the heated floor and bathroom mirror. But the servicing was all over the...

This is the third Doyle Hotel we have used and like the others, it is run extremely well.
