    Fabulous

    Availabilty of computer, size of room and decor,safe at desk. I was happy to get a ground floor en suite room since there is no elevator.

    Blanket should be replaced and covered with sheet. Stain from bedspread should be cleaned. The bathtub side was very high and required assistance to get in/out.

    Good

    Excellent location

    It's a bit 'run down'. The first room I was shown to was already occupied - the first time this has ever happened to me. This was quickly resolved. The tariff of £150 was high for a 'semi en suite'. No lifts. No safe in the room. I requested a second pillow but this was not delivered.

    The location of the hotel.

    The floor in a room is slightly tilted. The carpet is very old. The toilet is shared. No air condition. The light in a room is dark.

    Exceptional

    The Lancaster was easy to find via the underground from Heathrow. Great spot for touring London. When we arrived we had a full ensuites bathroom, a comfortable bed and opening windows. Easy to get to Fabric via taxi if your into the club scene, also easy to get to Oxford street for the shops. Clean and a comfortable stay

    Convenience of location for a meeting the following day

    Strange smell in the room and hidden plug points

    Fabulous

    The location of the Lancaster is pretty great....right around the corner from the British Museum as well as lovely green parcs...also relatively close to a Tube station. As far as the room, it was bigger than I had anticipated and even had a couch as well as the basics. Shared bathrooms clean and always empty. Reception staff are friendly.

    They charge you an insanely high fees for international long distance calls - and even wanted to charge us (astronomical amounts) for two collect calls placed...even though they were collect calls. We were given misinformation by one of the receptionists about long distance calls and ended up with a huge surprise upon checkout....if for whatever reason you need to make an international call do yourself a favor and buy a long distance phone card and use a payphone...stay as far away from their phone system a possible. We also only received one of three messages that were left with reception (we found out when we returned home)

    It is close to everything - shopping, restaurants, bars and you can go to central London by the tube with in a few minutes.

    Value for for money, nice people and central location.

    Very good

    The helpful service in getting my case to my room on the second floor, no lift and almost spiral staircase! Looking for a taxi on leaving was helpful too.

    I guess that the wc away from my room and the twisting staircase are not to my liking. The room becomes very hot in warm weather and the fan is not too good. The window does not stay open. There are signs that there should be a lock to hold the window in polace;. indeed there is but it does not slot into the hole provided as it only goes so far along! Also the plugs are near the ground; not good if you have a dodgy leg or back and therefore it is difficult to plug in an iron.. Saying this, I had to move a piece of furniture to get to the socket in the first place.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The convenience of being within walking distance of 2 main tube stations and near to Covent gardens etc.

    The stairs to the top floor were very steep and a lift would have made access less of a struggle. Had we been staying longer and taken more luggage, the 'journey' to the top of the hotel would have been a trial.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Good location next to the British museum close to Covent Garden and Soho. Very friendly stuff and very clean rooms and toilets.

    Internet access is ridiculously overpriced. No refrigerator in the room. Breakfast is quite expensive for what it is.

    Fabulous

    The staff went out of their way to help us find a location we wanted in London during our brief stay! The young lady on reception was very accomodating and had a lovely smile!

    Very good

    My room was amply spacious with nice furniture. The hotel is very well situated at the heart of London.

    Although I had an en-suite shower and wash-basin I had no en-suite toilet - rather remiss in a hotel of its class.
