Guest reviews for Holmes Hotel London

Family (1)
5 out of 5
I chose this unknown hotel for a quick weekend jaunt to London because of the positive ratings on Travelocity and other sites in combination with a lower price point as compared to any number of better known and more expensive options. The hotel exceeded my expectations in every way. It was nothing short of perfect! The staff is beyond friendly without being intrusive. The accommodations were as promised and as shown I. The photographs. The bar and food at the bar were fabulous. The location is superb given the proximity to the Baker Street station and the walkability of the surrounding neighborhood. I will definitely choose this hotel on my return trips to London, never again looking at five-star places like the Connaught where I’ve stayed in the past. My single criticism is that the bathroom is tiny. That being said, it is tastefully designed, and the walk-in shower is quite nice. That’s such a small price to pay for having the so-good feeling each day just being there.
