My experience with hotels in London is actually quite limited, as we’ve never actually ‘vacationed’ here. But the Charlotte Street Hotel is one hotel we’ve become very familiar with over the years as its located literally next door to my husband’s office. It has become a go-to spot for breakfast/lunch/coffee/tea/drinks, etc., and is where many of our friends and colleagues have stayed when visiting.
The hotel is small but charming, the staff always friendly and the location could not be better — Charlotte Street is lined with one good restaurant after the other, and is located just north of Oxford Street and Soho and within walking distance to many of London’s tourist attractions.
The hotel’s rooms are not big, but the Junior Suites and the Penthouse are definitely big enough for extra beds/cots (at no extra fee). The rooms don’t have kitchens, but all the rooms have minibars and the hotel offers 24-hour room service. They’re happy to have families and children stay with them, even offering kids a welcome pack upon arrival. And I was just there over the Easter weekend, and they had organized an egg-hunt in their library for all the kids staying there — cute!
