    The ensuite room clean and quiet. To their credit my room was upgraded to an ensuite immediately upon me complaining of the issue. The staff were friendly and helpful.

    I was extremely disappointed to learn that there were communal toilets. I was informed of this after the booking had taken place. I immediately thought to raise this as an issue. Breakfast was rather bland compared to Travelodge for the similar price.

    I have been staying at the Lancaster with reservations re the winding stairs and the lack of en-suite (this is due to both the building and the cost of everything).I Arrived to find that I had been upgraded to the Portland which is an hotel which has microwave facilities, with a sink, etc. Of course en-suite too and a lift - the Lancaster has no lift. It was excellent but had I known I could have organised to bring something for lunch/breakfast, after concert meal whatever but there was not time to get these after I had booked in. Very nice though and I wish I could stay in another of the Grange Group's hotels in future but too pricey over all.

    Of course, being a self-catering hotel, there was no dining room and therefore breakfast was at an hotel a few doors away - glad it wasn't raining!

    We actually haven't had the opportunity to see the rooms in the Lancaster hotel due to a system issue. After a short wait (15 minutes) and as the IT system was down for some reason we were upgraded to the hotel on the other side of the road: The Clarendon Hotel which was a 4* hotel. Rooms were very spacious, very clean and confortable. Everything was fine. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel either as we found a place right in the park around the corner which was offering it for half the value.

    Very good location in the center of the city with good access to tube and buses

    See-through shower doors, noisy building and expensive internet access

    I liked the location, the room size was excellent and quiet, bed was very comfortable and staff were tremendously helpful andi woould have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel to friends and clients alike.

  • Group of friends

    The staff was very kind and nice and the location was about 5-10 minutes walking from the center

    We paid 90 Gbp and we got nice room but and there is a big but the toilet was outside the room for us and for a few more rooms together that means we didn't have private bathroom and the shower was in the middle of the room with nothing to hide it so if you get a shower who else in the room can see u, and if someone opens the rooms door he can see you too. In addition there is no elevator there are stairs and a bell boy that can take ur things

    Good downtown location.

    While there was a local parking garage, the three different hotel staff indicated the garage provided a discount payment if a receipt of hotel stay was provided. This was not true. Also, the garage operators attempted to make me pay the 27 pounds twice. I had to argue with them for 15 minutes to retrieve my car with only paying once.

  • Single

    I liked the way in which the old building had been adapted to a high standard. I liked the room and its attention to detail including the hidden kettle and tea making equipment and the various lights available. I liked the fan having been made available to get the air moving as when I used to live in Bloomsbury there was a certain stillness when traffic was rumbling not too far away which could be uncomfortable when it was hot. I liked the staff and their helpful first introduction to the hotel and offer to carry the bags . all in all a very welcoming team.

    I was of the view that a more varied breakfast menu including kippers and a few unusual dishes would have added to what was a good and adequate spread of food. I was a little surprised that breakfast was extra.

  • Single

    The hotel was in a very nice area and the street was quite considering it is in London. The Hotel is in no way modern however it is very clean and a nice environment. Any one put of by the shared toilet dont be, they are very nice, large, clean and well decorated. Generally considering the price I couldn't have asked for more.

    The only negative is that the plugs are inconviently placed and there is no lift. However this didn't bother me and I'm sure the staff would have been more than happy to carry your bags.

    The room was big

    There was no WC in the room and it was shared with other 2 rooms. Internet access was horrible. There was non fridge inside the room. The price, compared to the service, was high.

  • Older travelers

    The high ceiling

    The hotel is worn, dirty and it shows. I believe that you will draw a crowd you really would not like if you do not upgrade the hotel.

  • Single
    5.0

    The location and some of the staff were very pleasant.

    There was no lift. When I asked for help to bring my bag up stairs the conceirge aid he was too busy and it was the guest's reponsibility. On reflection of his rather brash statement he then added that he might bring it up for me later on which in fairness he did. It was old, dirty, the carpets were grubby and the paint work dirty.

  • Single
    7.0

    The convenience - it was within 5 minutes walk of my business project. Reception was efficient and pleasant.

    The lack of an en-suite toilet and the W.C. was not next to the room.
