We stayed there for 4 nights and the only positive thing is its sooo close to the center. It is even not worth to use tube if you dont go very far outside of the most touristic places, london eye, picadilly, covent garden etc. But (They were old Indian people) the staff was not helpful. There was no lift and... More

I know it was booked via budgetplaces, but the Hotel was in really bad conditions. Bad bed, curtain not properly fastent, toilets not working all the time and very bad breakfast. It was placed close to center, but I would have paid a little more to have stay in something just a little better.

Clean bed and sheets, stayed in a 3 bed dorm room. Shower area was fine but the toilet was quite cramped. Location is a plus. One downside is the number of stairs I had to walk up to get to the room, 6th floor and I broke into a sweat even in the winter. Well, for 22 pound a night... More

The location of this hotel is excellent, right on the Strand and perfect for visiting the West End! The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the hotel is excellent value for money! The bathrooms are also clean (although, the 6th floor toilet door didn't lock properly) and well situated on each floor. The only drawbacks to this hotel is that... More

For my first time in London, from a very small town, I needed somewhere to stay that was accessible to my meetings (reasons for being in London). At £20 for a shared room I thought it was good going, but you really do get what you pay for. The reception staff were rude, make you feel small and liaise in... More

Pros are: the excellent position just a few minutes away from Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square; the rooms are warm. Cons are: the doors slam all the time, night and day - you can be careful when closing them but they slam anyway because they are are wooden and too heavy; poor quality breakfast (toasted bread, hot/cold beverages, butter,...

the accomodation is very basic, but the location is excellent on the Strand and great for the theatre or anywhere else in central London ... Charing Cross and Holborn are near. However, the best thing about this hotel, except for its location, is the India Club curry house upstairs (where the hotel's breakfast is normally served). Although the restaurant looks... More

Do not be fooled by the photo!! The hotel entrance is a small door way between shops and leads up stairs to a reception area. The room stank of stale cigarettes, the shared toilets were unclean, the whole place was very unpleasant. We returned to reception 5 minutes after checking in and handed back the key - the receptionist was... More
