My wife and I were looking for a hotel centrally located in London without being too expensive. We ended up booking at the Rathbone because at the last moment we noticed that they offer a discount and free wifi when booking direct, so they ended up being the cheapest hotel compared to others we were considering. Room sizes looked reasonable...

I have stayed at the Rathbone a few times after nights out in the West End and it suits me perfectly. Clean and tidy. Haven't tried the breakfast yet though. I like the lounge near reception too. Generally a very welcoming and well run hotel.

This was a nice clean hotel just on a side street off Charlotte Street. It was surrounded by pubs and restaurants which had a really good feel. They were all very busy but there was no trouble at all. The hotel was quiet too. No restaurant in the hotel but they offer a 10% discount card for several restaurants near...

Comfortable rooms in a great location. Friendly staff too. Main complaint is that the rooms look a little tired and the shower was very poor. Aside from that would I recommend but watch out for wifi fees if you don't book direct - thankfully we did but otherwise charges are scandalous for this day and age.

I stayed just one night and had a late arrival so can't comment on food. Welcome was good and room clean, warm and relatively quiet for London! Room I had was looking a bit tired but the towels were lovely and fluffy and the breakfast was plentiful with pleasant staff.
