As a last minute booker of hotels and regular London visitor on business I see a fair number of hotels. This is the second worst hotel I have ever stayed in. ( The Gresham in Bloomsbury is still most rubbish hotel in london ) Where do you start with this hotel? Every thing about it is poor. From the beds... More

Honestly this hotel does not even deserve one star, it was that terrible. Firstly the entrance was really hard to find & had broken steps to the reception. The girl at the reception looked like she'd rather be working at a cow farm shovelling manure. Secondly there is NO LIFT!!!! Our rooms were on the fourth floor and the schlep... More

The staff are friendly and it is in a great location the rooms are clean very bare, like a uni dorm room and for £60 a night it was pricey we got a travelodge but this hostel was the prefect location! Stairs are a killer after a heavy night out but it was a good time

A friend and I were just visiting London for a day and wanted a place to stay near the Thames. The Hotel Strand Continental was okay. We stayed in a double room on the fourth floor. The room was clean and big enough for us to hunker down if we wanted, though we spent most of the time out and... More

Without any doubt the worst hotel in the planet. Luckily we decided to leave before even using the facilities. The place needs lots of attention and care, for what it is and unless if you enjoy misery, don't go there. We checked in and out in less than an hour, we knew that it's non refundable place so before wasting... More

Stayed at the strand continental mid July 2014, we had a 3 bed room on the top (6th) floor, I consider my self a pretty fit person but wow, those stairs killed me. Room was very small and the shower and toilet was grim. The location is excellent and overall it is good value. Breakfast was cereal and toast, basic... More

Hotel Strand Continental is very convenient, £50 for a single room including breakfast. Location is great, very central, walking distance to Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Holborn. Staff very nice, polite and helpfull all the time. Hotel is quite, very relaxing. Breakfast room is very nice, with nice view on the strand.

Booked this hotel as only needed somewhere to sleep over for a few one night, and although I knew it would be basic I was still unprepared for the level which I found. My single room had one very creaky single bed (little more than a camp bed) on which was a duvet and one very thin pillow, a desk... More

Room was on the 6th floor with no lift. Whole place smelt of curry..which is great but i don't want work clothes smelling of it the... More

We stayed here because of the location and it was such a mistake! We had all our electronics stolen from our LOCKED room, and we weren't sharing with strangers! I would treat this place with serious suspicion considering the room had not been broken into-
