Our experience in this hotel was positive and so we only have good things to say, our room was clean and felt safe there, the communal areas were clean at all times, the staff are friendly and helpful. We tried the breakfast which was decent and kept us full till lunch time. It is a good place to stay in... More

Five of us stayed at the continental hotel and we really enjoyed it. The hotel is situated in an excellent area, it is clean, it offers basic accommodation (one cannot expect anything more with these prices) and it has cheaper prices than a hostel, and has friendly staff. Definitely we will book again

You enter to The Continental Hotel and find yourself in Hell. Administrators are so nasty. Whatever you ask, answer is that, it is a budget hotel. But in our opinion one does not got conditions that budget hotel promised and should provide. They act the way that you feel uncomfortable. Looks like, they think that they are doing great favour...

As a former tv news cameraman I have stayed in some pretty ropey places but this hotel takes the biscuit. For a London hotel it is grubby, tacky and distinctly uncomfortable. The mattress had seen better days and was dirty. There was no plug in the basin. Limited hot water (none at all in the wash basin) . No tea... More

As this was a budget hotel, we booked the most expensive room available. The room was number 4. How it has passed any grading or health inspection is beyond us. The toilet area was disgusting. The bed was never made up, and we had to purchase towels. The breakfast room was very small and sometimes it was necessary to queue.... More
