I quite agree. My wife and I used Endsleigh as a home from home for 
years. By all means, as Louis says, ask for a room away from the street 
and, preferably, up a couple of floors. There's a small shopping centre 
a couple of blocks away in the direction of the Russell Square tube. 
And, of course, the British Lib is three blocks away.
