Morgan Hotel Review

Don't expect many bells or whistles in this former Georgian townhouse, but the sunny, attractive rooms overlook the British Museum. Some of the guest rooms are quite spacious, some have floor-to-ceiling windows, and some overlook the museum. The little apartments (£165–£265 per night) give you a bit more space to move around in and have a tiny kitchen. The small, paneled breakfast room downstairs can rightfully be described as "cozy," and the family that runs the place could hardly be friendlier.

    Morgan Hotel Review

    We feel completley at home when we stay here and have been doing so for a number of years. The rooms are extremely well kept and quiet(those in the annex are our favoirtes). The owners and staff are helpful, efficient and friendly. The breakfasts are very good. And the location next to the British Museum and close to the theater district, with a bus stop practically at the front door, is excellent.

    Excellent stay in London, I'd return

    The hotel is centrally located on a busy street literally over the side wall of the British Museum (the walk to it is about 2 minutes, tops). It was about a 5 minute walk to the Tottenham Court Road tube stop (and Boots and some theater) and 10 minute walk to Holborn tube stop. I had a large single room with a queen bed for ?85 a night. This included a full English breakfast of cereal, yogurt, fruit, eggs your way, bacon, sausage, tomato/mushrooms, coffee/tea, toast and juice.

    The room had two layers of windows, which kept the cold air and the street noise out sufficiently. The room was also sufficiently warm for an unusual cold snap the city was experieincing. I was hesitant about a room overlooking the street like that, but really didn’t hear the traffic at all at night, also did not hear any other guests other than when they came and left their rooms nearby.

    The bathroom is small but very clean. I had no problems at all with either the shower, the hot water or the toilet as others have mentioned. The bed was new and comfortable and clean as well. There was secure wifi in the hotel that I think I would have had to pay for but I picked up the free wifi from the Radisson across the street no problem. TV in the room had about 5 channels. The hotel is secure, with a locking front door that only guests with keys can access.

    There are no elevators but the staff helped me up and down from the second floor with my luggage, as well as out to the corner to meet my taxi when I left.

    There are plenty of pubs and a Starbucks around the British Museum. I had lunch at The Plough, which is nearby, one day and it was really very good.

    No complaints at all from me and I would return in a heartbeat.
