We have just stayed here for two nights. We read the reviews before booking but thought it was worth the risk as there were as many good as bad. Ignore the good ones. So the good points first. It's close to the northern line so is a great base for sightseeing in Central London . The area seems nice enough... More

This hotel was comfortable and clean. It is in a great area and was relatively close to a tube station and great bus access. It is old and probably needs a freshen up. No air conditioning - and we happened to get to london in a mild heat wave! (Not the hotels fault!) it had a weird smell always present... More

The advantages first. Great location. A 5-10 minute walk to nearest underground station, in London center in less than a 1/2 hour. Neighborhood around hotel has lots of restaurants, cafés, shops... Staff very friendly and helpful. The disadvantages. The hotel is in need of a major renovation. Everything seems old and worn out. While I didn't find it disgustingly dirty,... More

The star rating is WAY above similarly rated hotels in London. Run down rooms. Broken tile in the bathroom. Mold in the bathroom. Beat up furniture. Peeling wall paper. Ripped and stained carpets. No air conditioning (avoid in a heat wave.)

Sorry but this hotel was not cheap at £149 for a single room without breakfast. The carpet was dirty and stained. The bathroom fitments were disgraceful. There were dirty plates in the corridors left from the previous guests. Curtains were off the rails, coffee table was badly stained, wallpaper coming off the walls. Plumbing noisey, I could go on and... More

We came here after I had to have surgery in London during Wimbledon. When we arrived we were dismayed to find that we would need to be transferred to another hotel due to the busy period, but after consulting the staff of my condition they immediately gave us a room and were very helpful and friendly to us. The room... More

After reading reviews, we were cautious of what the hotel was like, however upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised. Hotel staff were lovely and the rooms - though dated - were not an issue at all. We booked a room just to stay in, and as we knew we wouldn't be there much, we didn't want to pay extortionate prices.... More

Clean, well priced and great location - I don't get why it's being rated so low when it's a pretty decent place! Yes, the rooms are a little dated but come on, for what you pay it's not gonna be five star height of fashion! People expect too much these days. Room was clean with comfy beds and staff around...

Me and my friend thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Although a bit dated, we felt it gave the hotel character. We did have problems with the shower as we struggled to turn it on and off. After calling reception the man on reception came up to help. The beds were so cosy and comfortable. Got the best nights sleep ever.... More
