"Expensive hotel in the center" Grange Holborn Hotel (The) Tip by Djinn76

Grange Holborn Hotel (The), London: 1,903 reviews and 10 photos

I've stayed twice at this hotel so far, each time for business!
Thanks god, I was not paying by myself, it is bloody expensive! Even if the hotel was good in general, I found the ratio price/quality a bit disappointing.
The room was big but filled in with two huge double-beds, staying there alone, it was not making too much sense to me...
...not much space left for the armchairs and the small desk!
Comparatively to the room, the bathroom was really small but the minimum was there...

Couple of magazines were available, always useful when you have to take your lunch alone in the restaurant!

Quite amazing, there is a swimming pool as well but I haven't got the time to enjoy it!

**update** NEVER AGAIN!!! I was supposed to stay there a third time but they overbooked me!! They downgraded me to a second class hotel in a nearby street! I have been dropped in a dark tiny smoky room in the basement!! According to the taxi driver, I'm not the first one!!

Unique Qualities: The restaurant provides good food at a reasonable price!

The hotel is perfectly located, right in the center, really close to a tube station.
