Stayed here in September 2013 with my boyfriend. When we first got there our allocated room was awful with stains on the walls and the floor outside the window was covered with tab ends, plus our bed was just 2 twin beds pushed together. I went to reception and asked to change and they did it straight away with no... More

The reception staff were helpful and friendly, and the location of the hotel is great, just 5 mins walk from the nearest tube station, and close to central London. BUT..... The hotel is a tired old terrace building, the paintwork needs attention, the sofas are worn and scruffy, the lifts are a bit rickety with the old name of the... More

I have stayed here many times over the last few years on visits to London - because of its location, it's fairly good price (considering the location), and because I know I won't be spending much time in the room. I have always found the staff friendly and helpful, but the rooms vary depending on which part of the converted... More

Just a one night stay in June 2014, picked for the good location six or seven minutes walk from the nearest Underground station. Fairly quiet location, despite needing the window open for ventilation on a warm night. Payment on arrival, but despite saying that they accept American Express was told that they did not any more, as the hotel is... More

This hotel is absolutely dire in its customer service. I booked a room for one night for when I needed to be in London for business. I'm a busy man so I booked it online. Come the day before I looked for the email confirmation and could find none. I then emailed them about this and they took nearly the... More

This hotel was really handy for all that I needed to do last weekend but, aside from the main reception, the hotel is looking seriously dated. Our room was clean (ish - we found a pair of socks under the curtain) but the shower's grouting was ugly and the sink was out in the main bedroom which means you can't... More

If you looking for a comfortable bed to sleep on, this is NOT the hotel to choose. Nothing but thin fabric between you and bear springs. Most uncomfortable night, until I slept on reception lounge. Staff ignored my request to swap mattress. Be warned, check out the bed first before you confirm your booking. This hotel is also not maintained,... More

Not the most luxurious hotel in London but not the most expensive either! Hotel is generally tired but acceptable, a fair price for a hotel in London. We had a superior room (406) which was a good size but unfortunately there is a ventilation duct outside the window which was noisy all night, went off at about 7am finally -... More
