We were shocked when entered a room : no working tv, shabby floors , walls, frames,carpets, beds - everything you looked at. I... More

We had great stay in the continental hotel. The people are nice, the room was clean and warm during the night, they cleaned the room every day, the breakfast is free. The hotel is basic but clean, the carpet in the breakfast room, in the reception and the corridors looks fairly new. The position is excellent there are many shops... More

We stayed over the bank holidays in the continental hotel. Our quad room was clean and big, the linen was clean and the beds comfortable. It is manned 24 hours so there is security, the staff is polite, the free breakfast start 7.30 in the morning and it is good. Overall our stay was good.

My first impression was the worn carpeting in the reception area, and it seemed like the edges of the carpeting were quite dusty. On the plus side, the room was cheap, the manager was patient when my card wouldn't swipe, and he later allowed me to leave my bags at the desk while I was out taking pictures. But either... More

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...

Four guys we stayed in one room, the hotel is cheap but clean, the people are friendly and help when you ask them, you have also complimentary breakfast with the price. It was recommended to us by other friends who use this place when they go to London. The area is great, where will you find in central London these... More
