St Giles Hotel (London)
Advantages: Location - close to TCR tube station
Disadvantages: Tiny rooms, shabby
Location is probably one of the (only) postives of the hotel its right next to Tottenham Court Road train station and close to lots of attractions.
Checking In/ Out
Because of the large amount of people staying at the hotel checking in and out can take a while. We were lucky that it took less than 5 minutes , however a lot of tours stay here and if you arrive at the wrong time you may wait 30 mins plus if a party of 50+ people arrive before you.
Very small for a double room. The bed took up most of my room, then the remaining floor space was taken up by my small suitacase. There is a desk in the room and a hairdryer, which takes about 3 times as long to dry your hair than a normal hairdryer. The bathroom was tiny. I'm very small and I found it quite a squeeze moving around in there when getting out of the shower. The room was clean though but I heard 2 other couples complaining that there room wasnt at reception!
I booked a double room for myself and my partner and for two nights we paid £180 so £90 for a room per night. Pretty standard in my experience of London hotels for what to expect and I defintely think that the £90 is based upon the location and not what you get once inside of the hotel.
A busy hotel so expect some noise from the number of people that stay here. You could stay at a lot worse places in London for the money but on the other hand you could stay at a lot better for the price too. Its ok for one night and somewhere to just use as a crash pad but if you are wanting to spend time in the hotel then dont stay here
Summary: Ok to spend one night here but probably no more!
