Please do NOT be fooled by the nice pictures on the website. This is truly as basic as it gets. I was booked in for FIVE nights but only lasted 40 minutes because this place is so poor. I still had to pay for one full night. The old man on the reception was very rude and obnoxious and no... More

We had a room booked at the hotel months in advance. Without so much as an email beforehand - arrived at the hotel to be told there was a "plumbing issue" and we would get a free taxi to their sister hotel. From bad to worse when we had been given the wrong address and wrong place marked on a... More

We were promised beds for 4. One of the beds for two was a sofa bed that was very narrow. Thank goodness we had kids sleeping there. The TV in the room, which was extremely small, did not work at all and the management did not get up there to fix it. There was no air conditioning, only an oscillating... More

We arrived early to check in and the staff at the front desk was great about allowing us to check in early. However, we got to our room expecting to see a match to the picture and description of a standard double as shown on their website. What we got was a room matching the picture and description of a...

Traveling with family of 4, booked two rooms. Very tiny with minimal walking space around the bed(s), but that was expected. What wasn't expected was no air conditioning. Kids' room had a window, which helped at night; parents' room was interior with no window at all -- they provided a fan but that wasn't great. Parents' room shower would collect... More

First off the rooms's tiny and the bathroom even tinier. The Windows seemed to be closed but from the noise we heard, they weren't closed a 100%! The mattress is not comfortable at all, furthermore not all the lights in the room were working. My friend and I managed to ignore most of it but after we came home at... More

Stopped here on business and was a little worried as I booked the hotel before reading any reviews. But on arrival I was pleasantly surprised. The room was a little small but that was not an issue and it was very clean. It was a little noisy at night due to the main road but that was not an issue.... More

This was a truly awful experience, and I say that as someone who travels to, and stays in, London many times each year. I had to wait over an hour to check in at the hotel, despite having a verified booking. The desk staff seemed to have no idea how to locate bookings, how to prioritise their work, or about... More

Robert Keczeli They wanted to force us to accept a significantly lower category room than booked, confirmed and – in an unusual way – pre-paid at check-in. The settlement of the problem, to put it mildly, was not so easy and took more than one day. A very unfriendly, negative behavior male receptionoist, firstly taking us idiot, gave a same... More
