We were on a low budget but wanted to stay in central London, the cheapest we could find was the continental hotel. We booked for few days, everything was fine no problem with our room or anything else, it was clean. We like to thank the people who keep such a budget hotel in Central London so people like us...

We were looking for a cheap hotel and booked at the continental hotel. The room was as we expected it for the price we paid, basic but clean with basic furniture. We had also breakfast which was included and was good, if we wanted we could ask for more. It is good value.

Con's: shower was via hand nozzle with broken wall mount. The in between: continental breakfast was , no exceptions, a bowl of cornflakes, 2 slices of toast, barely toasted, butter,... More

Great location, friendly staff, clean and warm room, just few minutes walk to oxford street. Paddington train station and underground just around the corner as well as bus stops. Nice restaurants and pubs to suit all budgets. We had great experience and we will be back.

This hotel is in a nice area of london, with great access to rail/tube transport. Unfortunately, that's the ONLY good thing about it. The staff were sullen and surly, the place was generally dishevelled and rundown, and the conditions of the shared bathrooms were so bad that it made my wife cry. The carpets are worn and badly stained, the... More

My friends and I stayed for a few nights and this was absolutely the worst hotel I have ever stayed at, if you can call it a hotel. It was dirty and smelt like mildew and the staff was not friendly at all. I have stayed in nicer hostels. There was water damage on the walls and the bathroom had... More

My girlfriends and I stayed in the continental hotel in a triple room with bathroom we booked directly. We did not have any problem from the time we checked in until we left and we felt safe there, they have security at night. Our room was good and clean, the breakfast was simple but enough for us. Definitely we will... More

Last time we were in London we booked at another hotel and paid almost double money because we read the bad reviews about the continental and we were scared - this time we decided to try the continental hotel and we are very happy we did. The room had high ceiling, basic furniture, good bed, clean that's all we needed.

We took a double room with breakfast inclusive for 47 pounds. We are pleased we chose the continental hotel because we saved money. The hotel is budget B&B, clean, friendly staff and helped us with directions, the room was cleaned everyday. We will speak to our friends to use this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel in a twin room, the front desk staff are friendly people, the hotel is basic no luxuries but clean, the breakfast is basic but plenty. It is great value for money in central London. We will use from now on this hotel in future.
