My experience in that hotel was awful! Photos from on the web are fake! Reality is: underground located hotel, unclean and very small bath, walls painted in different colors, and the staff unfriendly! Unclean bed sheets cause me infection on eyes! DO NOT BOOK IT!!

Location extremely convenient, both to Russell Square and Kings Cross / St Pancras Station - perfect for Eurostar. Service was helpful. Room small but clean & adequate. Shared bathroom was fine. Motel was quiet.

Before even arriving at the hotel, we had called to see if they could store our luggage before check-in (something very standard of most hotels one would think). After they declined our request (should've been the first red flag), we waited around the area in one of the parks until 2 o'clock. After enter the dingy establishment, we were waiting... More

Travelled to England from Canada and booked this "hotel" online before arriving. First off, it is very cheap. For 2 people it was 210 pounds for 3 nights. Very good location, walking distance to Euston Stn. It was more of a hostel rather than a hotel. It was under construction when we were there, we were awakened by 10-15 Indian... More

2 young female Australians, we booked before we got to London. Upon first impression, doesn't look too bad, had to pay money upfront before seeing the room, big mistake. Rooms are nothing like the website, very false advertising. Ongoing renovation works, plaster falling off the walls, very dirty, disorganised, very strong curry smell. Hotel is run by a group of...

The Goodwood Hotel would be honestly better to set more realistic expectations, if it were to turn around it's poor trip advisor reviews and proactively deal with situations like mine, where we (four business people) simply just walked out of the hotel having paid £400 deposit for 4 rooms. We later went on that evening to spend £250 each for... More

On arrival I was informed our booking wasn't available due to them over booking can even though they sorted us someone where at a different hotel the whole situation was unconvinent and not ideal.i feel I won't be using this site again due to maybe that could of been the problem how the double booking took place

Stayed in this hotel last night, worst hotel I've ever stayed in, 5flights of stairs to get to the room, booked a double room and no way was it a double room, the bed was like a prison bed! Cramped for space and the cleanliness was shocking! Stay away from here!

In one word...its terrible...however, the manager was cordial. Please think twice to book at this hotel. Apparently, seems that the room rate is low but once you are there you will agree that it should be within GBP 20. The photos that they deliver is totally fake. The rooms are fit for pets.
