We stayed at the Craven Gardens Hotel in May 2013. The hotel serves as a hotel and hostel. The hotel piece is more expensive but worth every penny. The services include changing the linen everyday, cleaning the room and bathroom and a free breakfast. However, this is only if you stay in the hotel part. The hostel part contains rooms... More

Stayed here with my partner in a private room and it was modern, clean, spacious with a sweet bathroom. No street noise. Free breakfast (wasn't a hot breakfast sadly), cheap beer and fast free wifi. For our last night there we transferrred into a 6 bedroom dorm cause it was close to NYE and it wasn't the nicest for the... More

I went to london with my school (SMIKS). The hotel is good if you travel with a group. The location was very good. There was a metrostation nearby. I didn't like the room, it was very small and the bed was in front of the mirror so we coudn't see ourselves. The breakfast was just toast and jam but you... More

1) There was no natural light at all 2) The windows handles were nearly all broken and made opening them difficult (fire risk) 3) If you managed to open the window all you could see was pitch black and hear the sound of little rodent feet (which we heard at numerous points through the night) 4) The light was hanging...

If this hotel cost £30 per night would probably be acceptable. Unfortunately it is 3 times that! Tiny room. Tiny bathroom. Overall in poor conditions. Don't go

It's hard to find a hotel in a place like London at a tourist price that has a hot buffet breakfast. This is the place, and I would come back again and again. I hate being forced to eat Rice Krispies and that silly salami and cheeses all these places have. Give me eggs, bacon, suasage, etc. As for the... More

We stayed here several years back, but reading the reviews I just wanted to state our experience. The hotel was small, but clean. Our room had two single beds and a desk, with not much room for anything else-but as we were there to see London and not the hotel room, that was okay. The breakfast was decent and service... More

Location was fair to reasonable - its a good 10 minute walk to the tube station, but apart from that, its well sited for walks in Hyde Park.. Rooms were well decorated and of a very good quality, and bathroom was fantastic! No views as such, we had a rear-facing room into a courtyard but its only a room to... More
