I came to London for interview and stayed in the continental. The hotel is basic just as what it says on their website so do not expect anything else but it is clean and friendly place. In the morning I had also breakfast which is free and is sufficient. The continental is a good base for London.

The continental hotel is located in a quiet area. We had three rooms nine of us, the hotel is clean, our rooms were bright and the beds were clean and comfortable. The breakfast is included and is good, the staff is friendly. Certainly we will return in the future.

Our stay at the continental hotel was positive. It is a clean decent budget hotel, many convenience stores nearby, restaurants and pubs. Our room on the third floor was clean with comfortable beds, it was not noisy so we slept well. It is a good place to stay.

We were looking for a cheap hotel in central London and found the Continental.After reading some negative reviews we were apprehensive about booking in this hotel. My friend insisted we should go ahead and book as it happened previously with another hotel because of the competition - it turned out to be nothing near what the negative reviews suggest. Our...

I stayed for 2 nights over the weekend with a friend and it was absolutely perfect for our needs! Ok the building requires a bit of TLC but the room was clean and tidy and our bed was made up in the morning! This is a budget hotel so if you want travel lodge standard this isn't the place for...

I stayed with my family in the continental for 3 nights. After reading some of the reviews we thought we will have problem but everything was fine, no problem. The staff is friendly and helpful, the receptionist gave us free maps of London and told us all the information about the hotel, the room was clean. We recommend this hotel.

We had a nice stay in the continental hotel for few days everything was good from the quick reply to our e-mails when we made the booking to the bedrooms themselves. They were clean and big with windows looking the front garden. The complimentary toast, jam/marmalade,butter,cornflakes, tea/coffee, milk was enough. We will stay again.
