Me and my mum stayed here at the weekend in a twin room. It was a very small room but had everything that was required and was really clean. Surely most people who come to London don't spend much time in their room? Everything you need is there for a fraction of the price of most London hotels. It's easy... More

Very small rooms. At the reduced rate on LateRooms we got what we paid for and it was handy for where we wanted to be. This establishment (it's not an hotel) has no kitchen facilities but there are plenty of places for breakfast within a stone's throw. The rooms are not very well ventilated so an open window is a...

Room was clean, staff was helpful. However the room was quite warm and stuffy even with the windows open. This is to be expected in an old house converted to a hotel. Would use the hotel again when attending another London comic con.

I stayed just one night here. It was ... ok. Great location - walking distance to the tube station. The room I was in smelt a bit like stale smoke. They really need to replace the carpet in the hallways, as it looks gross (though it was vacuumed etc). Missing a couple of minor things like complementary biscuits and a... More

We had stayed at this hotel before and felt fine about booking for a second time. Our problems started before we arrived when they pre authorised 2 nights instead of one. When we arrived to pay we couldn't because of this, two nights payment were being held by the hotel. Paid the first night in cash. The room we were... More

We have stayed here before. It is a very basic efficiency room. Similar to a guest house or the Pensiones of Italy. Pros: Clean. Walking distance to Olympia Exhibition Centre. Also walking distance to pubs, grocery, and Tube station. Cons: Very basic. No A/C. The WC/Bathroom is so tiny that you cannot hardly turn around. Overpriced. Overall: When we travel... More

Recently stayed here whilst attending a weekend event at the Olympia. Very convenient location for the Olympia as well as cafes and convenience shops. The room was fine; bed was a little firm and carpet pretty dirty but nonetheless there was little disturbance and I had a good nights sleep. Staff are friendly and allowed me to store my bag...

Let's face it: for 80 quid (pounds) I wasn't expecting much. Just a room and a bed, TV, free WiFi, some hanging space, a shower, toiletries (no, just a shower/shampoo dispenser - almost empty), a small working area (with a most uncomfortable seat) and a tea making set firmly fixed to the wall. Well, that's all you're getting. This place... More

I took photos of my room. Someone described them as "looks pretty soul-less". Just about sums it up. I've never actually stayed in a room where the toilet is in the shower tray before (yes it's THAT small!!). I get that you're a budget hotel but at least chuck some colour on the walls maybe? And put a fan in... More
