So, we prepay via Expedia, for three nights. Cool. Show up the first day at four in the afternoon. Normal working hours, yeah? That's what we thought. But no receptionist. Had the same problem as everybody else- nobody answered the phone, et cetera. No keys for us in the flower pot, either. Ended up going in through a fire escape... More

Don't be put off by the horror stories. We stayed at the Central for 2 nights at the end of November. We paid £106 for 2 of us. For £26.50 each per night we had a large room, twin beds, tea and coffee making facilities with plenty of tea/coffee, uht etc. The sheets, I believe, were either laundered or boiled... More

I booked this very last minute on a Sunday morning for a stay the same day. When I arrived the hotel was locked, I tried the number stuck on the door which was switched off, so I left a message. I waited 20 minutes then called the number on my booking email which took me through to a central res.... More

Kind of mixed feelings regarding my recent 2 night stay. At the end of the day it is pretty cheap for London, Zone 3. Room was big enough for the 3 single beds. A wee bit grubby but the sheets were clean on the bed. My mate looked for somewhere to hide valuables and came across a pair of ladies... More

let's say that the hotel's infrastructure needs to be improved. The hotel wasn't dirty, but just in very poor shape: rusty fixtures in the bathroom, hot water for only 3 of the 7 days I and my 13-year -old daughter stayed in the hotel (granted I was refunded £70 of the £540 I paid for the week stay), torn and...

This Hotel is an absolute disgrace, not only is it dirty (see pictures) but presents a risk to those who stay there. We found fire doors propped open using fire extinguishers and the extinguishers themselves were out of date. The last test date on the ones we saw was 2006 which is illegal and asks a number of questions about... More
