I stayed there the first week of Aug 2014. The room had no air as most of the hotel also. If you ask for a room with air it will cost you 50 pounds more. The people were not helpful at all. Small bathrooms. They will give you a small fan if you yell enough. I would never stay there... More

Stayed here as a group of two couples in late August for two nights. The location of the hotel was perfect with great tube links. The hotel was easy to find (about a 5-10 min walk from Glouster Rd tube station.) We stayed in two twin rooms on the second floor and we're extremely happy with the size and cleanliness... More

If you stay in basement, be aware the door closing noise in the morning from the breakfast room. Everything else is ok. Clean enough. Storage room for luggage doesn't have any identification tag, therefore anyone could take your stuff. Make sure you lock it.

The Avni Hotel advertises air conditioned rooms but this amenity isn't included in advertised pricing. However, it is available for an extra 20 Euros but we didn't know this when we booked so we felt mislead. The hallways and rooms are like a sauna in summertime. We requested a fan and a midget sized one was provided. The bed was... More

room was lovely, a tad small but to be expected from budget london hotels. Staff were very friendly and there was a masive selection for breakfast. Hotel was very short walk from natural history museum but on a nice quiet street. Only problem we found really was the heat, the room had no a/c and the window had been opened... More

My sister and I booked this hotel on the day we were arriving, so we were glad to see there was rooms left! The price was great, we booked through ebookers and spent £69 for a twin room. We actually found getting to the hotel a bit confusing because the addresses either side of the hotel were on the opposite... More

Despite of the really good location and price this hotel needs a some repair and makeover. The most simple rooms are very poor and unprepared to host anyone. Teeny tiny, no air conditioner and noisy - as you listen everything (I mean everything) from the next rooms. The staff is ok mostly gentle but some of them has a little... More
