What was L'Hotel has been rebranded, and given a makeover and change of style; but it still remains one of London's best kept secrets.
It's under the same ownership as the prestigious Capital Hotel, almost next door - but to call this a B & B, is misleading; to describe it as a French-style 'Pension' gives a fairer impression.
Individually-designed bedrooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated in a crisp, modern style, with solid designer furniture. Very comfortable beds have hand-made mattresses.
There are a few suites, if you need a little extra space. All have plasma screen TV's, comprehensively-stocked mini bars and en suite facilities with deep tubs and hand-held showers. No room service apart from breakfast, which can be taken in the bedroom or Le Metro restaurant below.
Internet access via a modem, but no Wi-Fi as yet.
You can receive preferential access to an exclusive health club and gym.
