being somewhat wet weather the windows became damp on the inside
Great location, love Fitzrovia ! close to to great bars and restaurants, and only a short stroll into town
Rooms a little dated, but i see there is a refurb programme underway
We loved this hotel. The location was great, near 2 tube stations, and plenty of restaurants and pubs. The staff was friendly. The bar was conveniently located by the front door so when we came in a night it was easy to get a nightcap to take back to the room. The room service pizza was one of the best pizzas I've had in a long time. The room was comfortable and a decent size for London, enough room even for our 2 rather large suitcases. We enjoyed our and will definitely stay here again whenever we are in London.
Only 2 things I didn't like, both minor. But one is rather irritating. I wish they'd fix the shower curtain so it doesn't stick to you while you are showering. It's such a easy fix I'm surprised it hasn't been done a long time ago. The other is very minor, it's just that I enjoy watching ITV 4, but it was only available for 3 hours a night. No idea why.
The room service was quick, the delivering staff friendly & polite. The cleaning staff were helpful & friendly. The reception staff and were also friendly, welcoming and helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
About 6am every morning we woke to the noise of thousands of glass bottles being emptied from bins into the council garbage trucks. This is not the hotel's fault, but it is an annoyance.
The staff was very accommodating, particularly on checkout when our flight home was delayed and the manager extended our checkout time for an hour to allow us to stay in the room before heading to the airport. The location was within a 15-20 minute walking distance to many attractions (Churchill War Rooms, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey). There were many pubs and restaurants to choose from within a 5-10 minute walk of the hotel.
I didn't necessarily understand the need to book breakfast prior to the day. You received a discount on the breakfast options for booking early.
With a stay at Rathbone Hotel, you'll be centrally located in London, just a 3-minute walk from Oxford Street and 6 minutes by foot from BT Tower. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk.
