A one night stay........ Bedroom surfaces thick with dust/dirt; filthy shower fitting; washbasin overflow black with congealed grease; a TV the size of a PC screen from 20 yrs ago; loo roll left inside its plastic packaging in the window ledge (ie, nobody had bothered to put it on its holder); a dreadful ring-wired mattress that must have been 20+...

On arrival and departure there was no porter to help with our luggage and locating our room was a nightmare as it was more like a maze than a hotel. The bathroom was not so clean, no fresh toiletry was provided through out our stay of 6 nights except for towels which we did not require as we had travelled... More

a hostel not a hotel, rooms very poor with musty smell, the only thing nice about this place were the staff on reception, the breakfast is passable, the waitress and cook need to tidy themselves up, looked like they were dragged off the street after a night on the beer

This place did the job for an overnight stay whilst attending a gig at Alexandra Palace. The location was excellent and the fact that it has free parking is brilliant. We arrived early and couldn't check in so we went for some lunch and came back after check in time and still couldn't check in so we weren't impressed with... More

My husband & I stayed here for two days, we planned a spot of sight seeing in London Town and a visit to Alexander palace to watch the red bull soapbox race, the hotel was just round the corner which was great, plenty of shops, pubs etc around too if needed. The hotel itself wasn't as bad as some have... More

Stayed here for one night in May as was seeing the Prodigy at Ally Pally. Which was only a 10 min walk. It was cheap, the beds were clean and had free parking. That's about it really. Avoid breakfast at all cost, value beans, bread, sausage served cold. Wish we had gone to the cafe around the corner.

I called the hotel as arriving into St Pancras, and the guy on reception was very helpful into how I arrive there. The reception area was nice, nice lounge, the guy gave me my key, and i was checked in,... More

I booked to stay at the National because I wanted a room, nothing fancy, close to Alexandra Palace. My only other requirements were be able to get a good night’s sleep and to be able to have something to eat for breakfast. After choosing a single room with shared toilet, and given the price, my expectations were not high. Unfortunately... More
