The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was generally clean. I think the reviews differ depending on the room they were allocated. You can hear the people next door and also those with rooms next to the elevator may suffer. Breakfast was good, though it could have been better. The location is central and convenient, especially if you travel... More

The room and the breakfast were the worst we have experienced, and because of that we would not stay there again! The tiny basic room was in the basement,, the window looked out on a dumping area, it was a hot night, but we could not have the window open because we were worried about rats. The shower was very...

Stayed here for £80. Great location. Nice receptionist booked us in and was helpful. The room was a bed not much more. What else do you need in London? Breakfast was toast cereal juice coffee tea croissants and was ok. The only down side there was food on the walls the fitting were not great. Was good for a base... More

This hotel was a huge disappointment, please don't waste your money on staying here.The room that we were allocated was tiny, filthy and cold (this may have been due to the MASSIVE HOLE in the window which was cover up by a plastic wallet).The furniture was broken and falling apart, the table in our room was being held together by...

Walking into this neighborhood I thought wow.....but arriving at the hotel was a disappointment. It looks old and rundown. The room was very small with just a bed and a tiny table, that's it. Although it was clean everything seemed held together by duct tape and nails. Smallest bathroom I ever saw, bumping your elbows while washing your hair. The... More

The hotel room was very tiny (even for a European hotel room). There was no AC and the fan they gave us was about 6-inch diameter. There were only two working plugs in the room (and one was for the tiny fan), the others were broken/cracked or didn't work. The beds were awful (basically just springs). I put my backpack... More

The hotel is located in one of the nicest areas of London. It is very close to Paddington station ( Zone 1). The rooms are small and not fancy at all.The lift was not working, and we had to carry our luggage to our rooms on the third floor! But if you are planning to stay in the city center... More

Absolutely atrocious. I know you get what you pay for (£76 in my case for a single en-suite), but these guys push it to the max, take your money and run away screaming with laughter. To name but a few things: * no working lift, a room on the fifth floor and two EXTREMELY heavy suitcases. The unhelpful and surly... More
