On both visits, Mr Monkey stayed at the Tavistock Hotel, on Tavistock Square. When he leant out of his window he could either look at Tavistock Square, which was dark, or along the road towards the BT Tower, which wasn't so dark.
You can read about the Tavistock Hotel at the London Imperial Hotels website.
