Dreadful hotel. Dirty, no service, avoid at all costs. Location is surprisingly nice, but the hotel is so underwhelming that it does not justify going there. OK, it's cheap. But there is a minimum level of comfort that a decent human being expects. And it is not there at Clearlake hotel...

Cheap hotel but very smelly and dirty hotel. This hotel is owned by a family, they have no staff to provide the service. We stay in hotel 3 nights and 2 nights in the appartment. I dont want to stay in this hotel & appartment again. we dont recommend this hotel.

We booked this as we just wanted somewhere to rest our heads in a good location. Whilst the location is fantastic, we would actually rather sacrifice this than stay in the hotel again. Even after reading the other reviews, we booked thinking "how bad can it be?" Well, it was worse! Nothing has been decorated or maintained for DECADES. The... More

Two years after our last visit this hotel has certainly deteriorated. There is little really that I can say other than we won't be going back. It is a great pity because it is in a great location and the price is really good but this was not enough to save it!

Do not stay here - the whole place is symptomatic with decay.The facilities are out of date and well well worn. I do not know how the staff cope. They are friendly and kind but I think this is out of embarrassment more than anything else. Go somewhere else - you know it makes sense!

We had the large 2 bed/2 bath apartment on the top floor. This place has a nice location, but come on! So not worth it. It is disgusting, disgusting, disgusting! The carpet is worn through in large patches to the bare floor beneath, everything is dated form the 60's and doesn't seem to have been cleaned since then. Front desk... More

We made a reservation for a studio apartment but upon arrival were told that it wasn't available. instead we got a bigger but neglected basement apartment. The windows opening to a closed yard, a dead cockroach in wardrobe drawer, locked doors leading nowhere - it was unpleasant to say the least. only good thing - the bed linen were clean.

We found the Clearlake to be a good budget hotel. Its true that it is shabby but we found it to be fairly clean and you couldn't ask for a better location. We have been to London many times and we had always stayed on the other side of Hyde Park so we were pleasantly surprised by the easy access... More
