If you want just a cheap bed for the night and are not to bothered about the standard of your room, then this hotel is for you.

Required a hotel near to Union Chapel to be able to stay after a concert, 20 minutes walk away and very reasonable price compared to other hotels. I had a single room with TV, tea/coffee making facilities and a private toilet / shower and towels. The room was clean, the staff were friendly on arrival and the continental breakfast the... More

Although only stayed one night found staff very friendly and helpful. The room had all we required. Towels, tea coffee etc. The nearest tube is about 15/20 minutes away walking, but we are in our 60,s. We where in a very quiet part of hotel at side, be careful as there is a step which requires information about to avoid... More

Genuinely appalled at the lack of compassion for fellow human beings at this establishment! Booked a room yesterday lunch time for my mother who was having an operation at a hospital 10 minutes away, around 6pm after said operation, it became clear that my mother was not physically able to get to the hotel. Contacted the hotel to explain and... More

Room was small, an without air conditioning. Opening the window made sleeping almost impossible because of the noise, so I wouldn't recommend it during hot summer. On the other hand it's not bad for that price.

Very clean, nice people, small room, breakfast only sweet but enough food and fruit. Although we came there earlier, we could have left our luggage at the reception and go out. Definitely recommend if you´re looking for something trustworthy and clean for a shorter stay.

For the money, not bad at all. I was on the ground floor close to the office, dining room etc, so it was quite noisy. Room was very small though it was just a place to sleep, so I can't really mark it down for that.
