    This is a small, boutique hotel in a good location. Due to their anniversary special, the rate was reasonable. The room size for one was adequate but could be cramped for a family. My stay as Hotel Rex was pleasant.

    Very expensive, and disappointingly small unkept room. Musty smell throughout. See pictures and judge for yourself if this is worth £257 a night! I would not recommend this hotel especially as there are many much better hotels in the immediate area.

    Lovely old/refurbished hotel near Union Square. Very friendly staff, delicious small menu dinner in the "Library"/bar, and a terrific show with Wesla Whitfield & Mike Greensill in their Celebrity Showroom.
