According to the others, it is very cheap. Breakfest is not very nice but enough to make you satiated. Small rooms but you can see the crowdfrom window.
Unique Quality: At the center, sure!!! 5 min. to Trafalgar sq. (at the station of embankment!)
The Royal Adelphi is very centrally located in the Heart of London in a small side street leading from the Strand and between Charing Cross and Embankment underground stations. Many of London's tourist attractions are within walking distance of the hotel including Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly, Covent Garden, Leicester Square, The River Thames, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the shopping areas of Regent Street, Bond Street and Oxford Street, the Galleries and Museums and of course , Theatreland.

Directions: Get off at the embankment station! walk up the street for 100 metres!! just at the right! you can't miss it!!!
I was attending a course in Trafalgar Square so I was looking for something central that didn't mean forking out an absolute fortune nor bedbugs - this can be tricky but the Royal Adelphi held the answer. Tucked away in a side street behind Charing Cross station, it is particularly ideal for Eurostar travellers as it is walking distance to Waterloo station, something that I noticed during breakfast when lots of French could be heard.
It calls itself three stars. I would give it two. The rooms were not very inspiring as such, with the usual stained carpet I have come to expect in London budget hotels, and with a hole in the bathroom curtain. However, the beds were clean and comfy and so was the bathroom which came with a tub. The room had a TV and tea/coffee making facilities which came in handy for our Lemsips this extremely cold (in both aspects) February...The room was warm enough but came with a small heater which we used when we got in from the cold to make it more snug. As we travelled with a child, we got a room "at the back" which meant that it was more quiet than some rooms were said to be. An extractor fan "disturbed" us in the evenings but was turned off at night. Breakfast was a simple continental in a somewhat cramped room, but staff was friendly and as it was still a buffet you could eat a lot of it.
This is NOT the place to stay in if you are in any way dependant on a lift as there is none and even the reception is a flight of stairs up. The whole building is also full of little staircases here there and everywhere so if you, like H.C. Andersen, are scared of hotel fires, it's also not for you although there were escape signs everywhere so I don't doubt their standards.
Unique Quality: The hotel has its own bar in the reception area which is open 24 hours a day. This means that in the evenings, this area can be quite smokey so allergics beware, but as soon as you leave the reception, there is no smoke. If you're a single traveller, this is probably an ideal place to make friends. Add to this the friendly staff who knew your name just by seeing your key even though they had never seen you before, and this gave me the cheerful feeling of a more upmarket hostel.
Directions: Just behind Charing Cross station.
