A very bad experience. It was dirty, run down, tatty and after seeing my room , I paid my cancellation fee and left. The shower was in the toilet and the toilet in a cupboard. I would not recommend this to anyone and should not be allowed to run as an hotel in this area of London.

The only thing you can save from this hostel is the location. Old furniture. I would hardly recommend it. It is 1 minute to British Museum, 5 minutes to Covent Garden, 5 minutes to Soho, 5 minutes to Chinatown, 10 minutes to Picadilly

My stay in the Gresham hotel, was for 2 nights only. The hotel itself is very small, we were greeted by lovely staff on arrival. We then entered the lounge area where the wifi only works, so you cannot get it in your bedrooms etc. We attempted to go in the lift as we had so much luggage, but as... More

When reviewing any establishment we must be careful to do so fairly. When you book the Gresham you know it is two star and therefore you cannot be expecting four star luxury. The Gresham is a small, unpretentious hotel that deserves an overall rating of very good. I was welcomed at reception by a very friendly and helpful Samira. I... More

We stayed for two nights at a cost of £110. Cheap, considering the location. It is ideally centrally located. The lady at reception was helpful and it is staffed 24hrs a day. We had the option of a ground floor room so as not to lug our suitcases upstairs. We took it. The bathroom was small but the water wS... More

If you are willing to stay in a dorm then it is the place for you. Perfect location. Beds were hard. Windows kept the wind out kind of. Did not keep the sound out at all. My daughter kept saying close the window. But it was closed. Tv didn't work. No internet (wasn't advertised). It's bare minimum. All my dorm... More

Staying in Holborn

Neighborhood Profile
Holborn
Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit practically any taste or budget. With major attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House as well as popular areas such as Covent Garden and Soho all just a short walk away, Holborn is a smart base from which to explore London.
