Uncharacteristically poor stay
The reviews of this little hotel are excellent, as is the price for the centre of London; however, I had a very poor night at the Thanet.
I was given room 17 in the basement, the room was clean if a little tired aesthetically. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of room, i was expecting a single and had a double bed so no complaints there.
When I arrived back from my evening out at about midnight I went to bed to find that the staff room next door had a television blaring out right next to my head. It took me until 0130 to get it turned down, and even then after banging loudly on the door no one came out to apologise, the volume just petered out.
I was woken up before 0700 by doors slamming and every time anyone flushed a loo or had a shower the water seemed to run down the pipes in my room, so i got up tired and a bit grumpy. Then the shower was tepid at best. I felt sorry for the owner because I had a justified moan at her and she seemed genuinely surprised and took some money from my bill.
So, this does seem like a nice hotel. It's cheap and central, but avoid the basement room at all costs. My friend slept upstairs and had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was fine.
Just needed somewhere cheap and less glam, this was exactly that.
It you want a 4star then this would disappoint But was a simple single room on top and did the job..
It was a very pleasant stay, I enjoyed it.
The site is excellent, I could do a lot by feet.
Great location for what I needed in London.
Hotel good value but feels a bit tired.
En-suite was cramped and had no extractor fan. Bed was comfy and food was good.
Thanet hotel review
I stayed for one night only but I would happily stay again.
The room was clean and very well kept. It is central to London and the price considering the location was superb. The breakfast that was included was amazing and very well cooked. Lots of fruit, cereal and yogurt to also enjoy, but the cooked English breakfast was more than I was expecting and it was so delicious. Richard the owner is a great guy, and takes pride in what he is doing and it shows. It is central to everything and only a few meters from the British Museum. Don't hesitate to go here.
Friendly and helpful staff, went above and beyond to assist me with a business need.
Whilst the accommodation is not the most modern, it is clean and well presented, and the property is in a very central location, close to the theatre disrtict (easily walkable) and close to Holburn tube. Lots of restaurants and cafes around, so although evening meals are not provided in the hotel there is loads of choice when it comes to eating out, and not far away. Reasonably priced for such a central spot in the capital.
Great value for money
Lovely welcome from helpful staff.
Comfortable night. Good breakfast. Would definitely stay again.
A good place to spend timewhen visiting London.
A great little hotel
I booked this hotel at short notice for a night out in Covent Garden.
Its about a 10 minute brisk walk away (it's not a straight road so if you don't know London I'd recommend using a smartphone satnav (set to walking mode) if you're going to walk from the hotel). The staff are welcoming, efficient and friendly. The room was small (I booked the single room) but it was very clean, everything worked properly and the bed was very comfortable. The following day the breakfast was great. A choice of fruit, yoghurts, Juices followed by a full cooked breakfast with tea or coffee. Perfect after a night out. When compared to the prices the big chain hotels were charging on the night I stayed I would recommend this hotel to friends as a great alternative and excellent value for money.
