The location is excellent and accessible by all means of transport. This hotel offers basic accommodation so if you are on a tight budget it is ideal. We had two double rooms with shared facilities which are basic but clean all the time as it was our rooms. The price is almost half what the other hotels nearby charge -... More

I stayed in this hotel with a group of students from university. We booked here because I stayed there previously and was very pleased so I suggested to others. It is not as some reviews suggest - it is clean place and safe. Our rooms were warm with private facilities which were clean, the beds comfortable with clean sheets and... More

Great location, but you get what you paid for, and that is pretty much a roof over your head. Nothing here works that says it does in there brochure, the breakfast consists of Corn flakes (well they were in the early 90's) and cold toast (I didnt eat because i witnessed them scrap an un eaten piece onto a fresh...

The worst hotel I have ever been in, dirty, smelly, the only redeeming feature was that the staff were nice The carpets were filthy, the shared bathroom was dirty, tiny and smelly, the hot water is only on between 7 and 9am and 6 and 8pm! Please pay £10 extra and get somewhere else!

The Continental Hotel is a budget hotel with very low prices for Central London. The rooms are basic ( you cannot expect anything else with these low prices) but are clean. Our rooms (we had 3 rooms) were on the second and third floor, they were quiet, warm and the water in the shower was hot. The staff is nice... More

I stayed with my family last summer and also few days ago and I still find the continental hotel to be of good value. I do not agree with the comments of some reviewers they expect to receive luxury hotel treatment that's why they get disappointed. Our room on both stays was clean and the staff are nice.

I stayed one night here and it was one night too long. I know it was cheap but there is a reason why its so cheap! I was given a single room at the top of the hotel and had no help with two heavy suitcases. I slept intermittently as the bedcover I had had little black insects crawling over... More
