Booked this a year ago for my hubby taking part in Ride London 2014, but they sold the business and the new owners did not know about our reservation. Rooms were grubby and very small. The blinds on the windows were too small and the light shone through about 4 inch at each side. The flooring was dirty and smelly,... More

I was terrified when I read reviews people had left here, and honestly didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised, though. The staff greeted us with huge smiles on their faces, they made us feel very welcome in this large, slightly scary city. Our room (for 3 people) was exactly what we paid for - honestly, where would... More

I stayed in the Kings Head Guest house from 14th-18th July 2014. After reading some of the reviews on this website I really did not want to go and stay there- however upon my arrival I was given a warm welcome be staff who were continuously kind and helpful throughout my stay- my room was basic but for the price...

Do yourself a favor and avoid this place if possible. Although it is quite close to Stratford station (about 10 minutes walking) and the wifi connection is OK, those are the only good things of this place. Our room was so small that we couldn't barely move. Our bed had BEDBUGS on it (yes, you've read it right) and it... More

This place is a dump-do not stay here. The room was dirty, smelly, small- bathroom had no shower curtain, no rug- They had a gate on the back window in the kitchen- scary staircase to go up-had to double lock the door downstairs and had to move a table for extra protection on the main door-

Ok, let’s be clear from the beginning. If you are a solo traveller or a young couple who just needs a cheap place where to stay not too far away from the city centre, this guest house is ok. Otherwise, avoid it and don’t even think about it. The rooms are small and not quite clean. Additionally, you will easily... More

The hotel is about 20 min from the Stratford station which connects to central London, however the room was old and dirty, toilets had the seat broken and there was no wifi. There was this hotel wifi signal but our phones never got it, and the people from the hotel told us it was because we had Lycamobile (um I... More

Dirty, room barely large enough for a single bed, made to be a twin, can't swing a cat. The shared toilets are 1 bathroom on each floor, all so dirty I have gone without a shower in fear of coming out dirtier than I went in. A little bleach costs hardly anything, and would go a long way to make... More

Stayed here with a friend in October 2013. This place needs a lot of help. I'm very low maintenance and regularly stay in camps, hostels, budget hotels with shared bathrooms, etc. but a minimum of comfort is nevertheless expected. My complaints: 1) Wanted to take a shower my first evening but there was no hot water in the building. The... More
