great location. Easy access to two tube stations. Quiet area only minutes from shops, restaurants etc. area very nice, lovely old houses. Got a reasonable rate for two night stay, given location. Hotel itself not a 3 star in my opinion, very basic. Shower small, no bath, wash hand basin in bedroom, holes in grouting, carpet frayed, blinds torn, old... More

6-7 minutes walkable distance to the nearest tube station. Very helpful staffs. I expected my room for 2 to be pretty small but no, i was wrong. Fairly clean and well taken care of. Quiet remote area. Food is everywhere, particularly Halal cuisines if you are looking for some from Malaysian to American.

Umi hotel is quiet and comfy and a big room by London standards. The staff very helpful and the coffee was great. The bathroom was clean and the water was hot. The tube station is a short walk. Great place to stay. They provide tea and coffee and tv for comfort and a handy map of things to do. Great... More

I stayed here for three nights prior to starting a topdeck trip. The hotel is quite old. Steps are creaky, floor is uneven everywhere. Bathrooms cramped. However overall its not a bad place to stay if all you need is a bed and shower. Staff were quite helpful though.

i went here for a college trip and we had 4 rooms of 4. These rooms had bunkbeds when we were 19-35 years old. Each room had something wrong with them, for example the one i was in had a shower which was either scolding hot or freezing cold. Breakfast was a complete rip off, £7 per person per day... More

Stayed here for two nights. The reception team were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very dated and basic, if you get a good rate then you are getting what you pay for. Felt safe and the room was clean. Great location

I stayed here with a student group and found the hotel to be comfortable and convenient. The rooms are adequate, with en suite facilities, a telly, and a kettle. I appreciated the extra pillow I found in the wardrobe. The accommodations are basic, but very clean. The staff is friendly and the location is great.

The hotel was easy to find, good location, in a very nice area. The down side of room 410, the bed is on a slope, very comfortable although i wasn't sure if we was going to end up on the floor with the mattress by the morning as it wasn't a little slope, floorboards are very creaky you could hear...
