We booked a family room of four. Awful! The room was clean… BUT: 1) it was tiny (which is normal for London); 2) it was stinking (we couldn't succeed to have this horrible smell going away, even by opening the windows); 3) it was noisy (we had to sleep with wax in the ears… but even so we could hear...

Hard to find fault with this hotel. Staff are non-existent. There are no lifts (good luck with anything over 20kg). The rooms are student dorm like. The beds are old and uncomfortable. .... But the price? And the placement???? A quarter of ANYTHING in the area and the area is one of the best in the world, so... suck it... More

You get what you pay for in inner London. Rooms are small and pokey but clean enough. It's the location that makes it worthwhile. Overall, a good choice for the budget conscious traveller who wants to be close to the action

Fantastic location, close walk to a lot of main attractions and to a tube station. Good wifi in bar. Very basic, shared bathrooms and not the cleanest - asked for the bins to be emptied 3 times and this wasn't done. Bedrooms clean and functional. Would recommend for someone on a budget holiday but don't expect luxury!

So let's put this into perspective first - this isn't a 5 star hotel, it doesn't claim to be big and luxurious. What it does claim to be (and what it is) is a cheap, basic hotel in the best location. London is a huge vibrant city with so much to see and do and this hotel is in the... More

The room and the bathrooms were clean. The common area had WIFI and was very comfortable. The only thing was the room smelt like smoke (don't know if from the previous guest smoking or smell permeating the walls). Despite this I would go back again because of the awesome location! Walking distance to London's main icons, right in the middle... More

Stayed with 2 friends in one of the 3 bed rooms on the fifth floor. Room was clean, tidy and had enough space for us to all get ready at the same time. We were not bothered by noise and although there were people in the bedroom beside us, we did not hear anything past 11pm. Paid minimal price for... More

It looks better from outside than from inside. Breakfast is a courtesy rather than a speciality, but there are many places to eat locally. The location is excellent. Decent value for money, make sure you get a room on the top floor for a view to impress.

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighborhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
