Lift was rather small, just big enough for two people and their suitcases. But at least there was one. The next day we were going to Paddington Train Station, a fair distance, so we asked the hotel to call us a taxi. That was an ill-advised idea. Firstly, there are black cabs outside the Bloomsbury so there was no need to call one via the hotel. Secondly, I believe the hotel and cab company were in cahoots, as we had to wait an extensive time for the cab, which was not a black taxi, and then had no meter but a tv screen obscuring where the meter should be. We were in the cab for over half an hour going who knows where, before eventually arriving at Paddington Stn, with a £25 fare to pay! We later learnt that that journey should only have been around £10 at the most, as we did it twice more in the same day using black London Taxis to visit London Zoo (also near the hotel) and then back to the Stn before our train left. This was a shame, as it has tainted our view of the hotel, which was actually a pleasant stay for someone on a very tight budget, and needing to be as close to the venue of my night out as possible.
Location was excellent, right in the centre of London, perfect for walking to and from Hyde Park, Soho, British Museum and other such places. It is opposite the Bloomsbury Hotel so very easy to find.
