    Location of the hotel very centrally located. Equipment, bar and service were very good.

    Unfortunately, the air conditioning didn't work.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    the rooms were perfect size for a city hotel and nicely decorated. Air conditioning worked well and the beds were comfortable.

    Breakfast was good and sufficient, but unorganized. Upon request, you could get everything from the menu, but it seemed to us that the staff served breakfast for the first time in their lives.

    Idealy suited for our romantic trip to London and visit to the Theatre

  • 8.8

    Location is excellent in Central London, between Westminster and Victoria station.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well serviced. We ate in the hotel both nights of our stay and were happy with the service and the food.

    Drinks seemed rather expensive bit I should think they were on a par with most pubs in London

  • 8.8
    Great

    The hotel was in an excellent location for seeing major tourist sites, staff extremely welcoming and helpful, older but comfortable, small room but clean and adequate, had a safe feel, very quaint, could walk everywhere to tour london easily from the location.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Comfortable, clean room. Good bathroom/shower facilities. Adequate storage for clothing. Perfect location for sites I wanted to visit. Restaurant attached made life much easier.

  • 8.2
    Great

    The staff and manager were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the pub attached to the hotel.

    Our air conditioning was not working in the room.

    Perfect

    Very quiet room as requested. Wonderful location--tube station a couple of minutes' walk away, a block from Westminister Abbey, Parliament, etc. Breakfast was very good!

    The toilet malfunctioned and, in spite of the staff's efforts to fix it, it never did flush properly.

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    The room was comfortable and they offered excellent services for the money, including room service (dinner and breakfast) and laundry services. This is usual in london in hotles at less than £200 a night.

    The building next door was under constuction so the room became very noisy from 6am, with trcuks and skips, and then builders started at 7am.

  • 8.2
    Great

    The staff was very cordial; the building/ architecture was beautiful and well-kept; our room was very comfortable; the location of the hotel is fabulous -- so close to Westminster Abbey and Parliament, and several good restaurants, the bus line, etc.

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    Sanctuary House is a beautiful little boutique hotel with lovely clean rooms, helpful staff and situated close to St.James Park Metro on the Circle line and a stones throw from Westminster Abbey. A great location for seeing the major sights of London and walking distance to Trafalgar Square. Our room on the top floor (5th) was very spacious and I would recommend to request the top floor. Loved it!

    The Hotel was great but trying to find places to eat was difficult if you didn't want pub food. The pub downstairs was good for breakfast but too busy and noisy at night to eat dinner there.
