As a previous reviewer has said it is a challenge to find a reasonably priced hotel in Central London and despite my poor review in May 2010 I have stayed at this hotel at least 3 times since then simply due to the excellent location. There is a tube (undergound/subway) station at Lancaster Gate which is 5 minutes walk away and allows you to reach all the important sights of London in a very short time. Additionally, there is a bus stop outside the hotel with buses running every few minutes. Of course no one should tolerate cracked tiles/mould in bathrooms but in my recent stays the bathrooms, whilst still old sixties style, were acceptable and clean. The public rooms are as good as any 4 star hotel but the corridors and rooms are indeed worn. However, I will stay here again because of the hotel's good location.
