Pros

  • Modern, refurbished rooms with ample natural light

  • Free in-room snacks and bottled water
  • Ethical standards including sustainability and eco-friendliness
  • Hotel supports student education in the developing world

Cons

  • Views of walls or neighboring buildings in many rooms
  • Small, basic lobby with no lounge space
  • No bathtubs
  • Some noise from the Tube

Bottom Line

Originally a student accommodation in the 1950s, the ethically conscious 100-room Wesley hotel is a small, independent upscale property proud of its sustainability focus and social awareness. Some of the decor in common areas reflects a functional mindset, but rooms are modern and minimal with ample light and nice touches like flat-screen TVs, kettles, and big bathrooms. A quality breakfast is cooked to order and there's free snacks and bottled water, but some guests complain about noise from the nearby Tube.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

A modern, minimal hotel

Originally a value accommodation offering security and comfort to foreign students, the Wesley is now a modern, minimal hotel with bright rooms. A large-scale £3 million refurbishment transformed the rooms into sleek, modern spaces but the lobby is small and basic with no space to lounge. The on-site restaurant and bar is a comfortable gathering place that serves dishes made from organic, local, and fair trade ingredients.

 Location

On a side street, near a major London transport hub

The Wesley is near the Euston and Euston Square Stations (and also prides itself in being down the street from the official filming location of the BBC's "Sherlock" series starring Benedict Cumberbatch). This side street may not offer much in terms of dining or shopping, but being close to three different tube stations provides easy access to greater London.

 Rooms

Modern and refurbished

Rooms at the Wesley have been refurbished and are now modern spaces with generous natural light. There is free in-room snacks and water along with flat-screen TVs, electric kettles, and big contemporary bathrooms. Some rooms are on the small side, but the sleek design with wood floors has an uncluttered feel. With a location so near several tube stations, some guests have complained about noise.

 Features

An organic restaurant and bar

The Foundry Restaurant has high ceilings and an atrium style layout that lets in significant natural light. This restaurant uses fair trade ingredients and sources produce locally and sustainably. There is also a full service bar. Business travelers might be drawn to the 15 available meeting rooms.

 Bottom Line

Originally a student accommodation in the 1950s, the ethically conscious 100-room Wesley hotel is a small, independent upscale property proud of its sustainability focus and social awareness. Some of the decor in common areas reflects a functional mindset, but rooms are modern and minimal with ample light and nice touches like flat-screen TVs, kettles, and big bathrooms. A quality breakfast is cooked to order and there's free snacks and bottled water, but some guests complain about noise from the nearby Tube.
