Fantastic hotel - great location”

Great location, service

i enjoyed my stay at the rathbone hotel. it was located in a fantastic area close to everything and the service was lovely. the breakfast each morning was lovle too. the only down side was that the rooms were a little small with older style decor (but i understand that this was quite traditional english charm). i was travelling alone on business so this so this did not bother me at all. the service and location really made up for that. i had a wonderful time. next time i come to london, i will stay here. i would also recommend this hotel to anybody.

Great Hotel, Great Location, Great Staff ”

Quick check in, friendly staff, well decorated.

we arrived at the hotel , to be welcomed by the friendly receptionist, quick check in, and a free complimentary upgrade to a suite!! which was extremley kind of the hotel. so we went up to our suite, entered the room and it was amazing! modern decor, led tv in the front room, with nice furniture, sofa and an ipod dock. bathroom was a little small, but you dont need a massive bathroom in a hotel. bedroom was beautiful, massive, comforatable bed, lcd tv in the bedroom and a mirrored wall. all in all we had a fantastic stay at the rathbone hotel and will definately be coming up again very soon.

Charming hotel in central location”

The only two negatives - noise from the surrounding pubs, and the fact that there are no power points next to the bed. Otherwise I really love this hotel and will stay again. Rooms a decent size compared to other chain hotels in the area (Mercure, Radisson) and it has a lovely retro kind of art deco feel to it. The bathroom was newly renovated and really nice. The continental breakfast was great, really high quality ingredients, and the full English was magnificent. Staff really nice and friendly. As this is close to my London office it will be by go-to from now on.

Quaint decently located hotel”

Great service staff

The hotel is quite small, but the rooms were very decently sized for a reasonable price. It is located just off Oxford street which is one of the best destinations for any avid shopper. It is also within walking distance of subway stations from the red and black lines. The service of the hotel staff was also above average, willing to provide advice on how to move around nearby and they even wrote a note welcoming us on our honeymoon when they found out about it. All in all it was a good experience and we would recommend it to travelers to London on a budget.

Staff helpfullness, location and definitely location

Good, we discovered an area of London we didn't know and have now grown to like. Also very well located for eating (1 min walk) and shopping (Oxford Street is 5 mins walk) and British Museum (5 mins walk). We'd stay at the hotel again, but would look for a better price next time (we stayed over new year and it was expensive).

You will never regret when you enter the lobby”

Location. Lobby. Convenient

When me and my brother check in to this hotel, we didn't expect much as lots of people said London's hotel is tiny. But came to our surprise, the room is rather the right size, bath room is clean and bright. The bed was comfortable and shower was good (felt like being moisture after the shower). Hotel is close to bars, restaurants, souvenir shops... we have no problem hunting for foods and Underground is nearby too. We got a one day pass for Tube and is so convenient to go every where. since there are lots of pubs there, be warn that mid night people still partying and drinking. This is my kind of hotel and I enjoy the stay very much. will sure stay in this hotel next visit if the rate didn't raise too much.

Central location, the room was large and the bed comfortable. We had a window in the bathroom, which made it feel homely. The staff were really nice and helpful. Only down side was a delivery one night for the pub over the road, but we find in London we always have some sort of noise with bins or deliveries, as that did not spoil our stay.

We stayed for three nights in a front room on the fifth floor, it was quiet and comfortable, a little on the small side but clean and well equipped. The staff were very attentive and helpful, which was a big plus. The location is excellent... on a quiet street but where the adjoining streets come alive at night, close to all attractions and easy to travel anywhere else in London.

Pretty nice hotel - good value for money”

Location, the room, price

Booked and stayed for two nights at a Junior Suite and the stay was perfectly good. The room was perfect for a short period (i.e. 2 nights) and the hotels location is amazing. Walking distance from most attractions around Soho and Mayfair and circa 30 min walk to Harrods - which is decent for London. Did not try the restaurants but there were many nice bakeries and restaurants in the area. Overall highly recommended!

Room was pretty old and slightly smokey smell

Rathbone Hotel is right in the middle of Charlotte street, which is a fantastic spot to stay in London. Away from the crowds but just minutes away from Oxford St and Tottenham Court Road. Charlotte street itself is a great place to dine and drink. Hotel however was old and service was un-friendly, with staff who were fairly disinterested in helping or ensuring your stay was good
