do not go here unless you have sleeping tablets to knock you out! room wasn't cleaned before check in, dirty pantyhose, dirty linen, dirty bin and a horrible stuffy smell invited us into our room, and at night all you could hear was the sound of bus brakes and hydraulics 24 hours a day. they charge a 5 pound fee...

The room needed to be painted (marks of humidity everywere) and also the moquette needed to be deeply cleaned. The room smelled really bad. Very noisy as well. We paid two night but we slept only one.

Nothing wrong with the establishment, some of the other reviews it has received are a little unfair. Shared bathrooms not ideal but they're well maintained, rooms are alright, enough to keep one satisfied when they're not out in London. Tea and coffee facilities are lacking but that's but a small factor. Very good value for the area

We never saw so bad and expansive hotel. We do not recommend to stay here. Dangerous for your health! When you arrived you are welcome by smell horrible! The reception is not client oriented at all. The room and toilets I can not even describe.

This hotel is conveniently situated close to Soho. You really only rent a bed. There are no other facilities at the hotel, which is not necessary as there are lots of cafes and eating places close by. Hotel is dated but clean.
