No complaints about this hotel the staff we encountered we very friendly and helpful and we were able to check into our room early which was very much appreciated, The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk from the tube station. Bar prices very reasonable as well. Would definately recommend this hotel,

We stayed here December for a couple of nights, the hotel is modern quiet and comfy. We stayed in room 112 it was a good size with a nice bathroom with shower. Great location with underground 5 minuets away. Breakfast was typical continental but you could pay extra and get a full English. If I was visiting London again I... More

Stayed 1 night at this hotel because of its close location to Olympia, did not expect to be so impressed by the standard and cleanliness, the shower was great! Small but adequate rooms, tastefully decorated. The outstanding customer service of the Manager and his staff was really impressive. Nothing was too much trouble. A really well priced hotel for it's... More

Stayed 3 nights and loved this hotel. Very convenient location on the high street. We did a lot of shopping and it was in a nice spot to catch the tube. The manager, Liman, was excellent!!!! I had a change in plans and called him from the US and no problems whatsoever. Wish all hotels had a manager as efficient... More

As the title!! I booked this a week before our stay on 18th December and was pleased with the cost of £84 for a double. Upon arrival it was a pleasant surprise to be upgraded to a junior suite. The location was perfect for our trip to Olympia. Room was very clean, beds comfy, windows you could actually open and... More

You don't expect much for this price in central-ish London, but this really exceeded our expectations. Perfect for our evening at Albert Hall. We were upgraded to a slightly bigger double, still not huge, but if all you need is a place to crash out after a day of theatre/shopping/walking/etc then it's perfect. Clean and tidy rooms, cool wallpaper, free... More

The rooms are small but who cares. For the price and location, it is worth it. Very clean, super shower, adequate breakfast. I would definately go back. I have stayed in lots of London hotels and this one is a keeper.
