I've been staying at this hotel since 2011, returning every year for the snooker at Ally Pally and whenever else I'm in London. It's a perfectly good budget hotel - when staying somewhere new, I always ask to see the room before checking in, but haven't needed to do that here for a long time, as I've always found the...

In a great location as muswell hill is great and walking distance to Alexandra palace for world darts. Hotel looks nice from outside but rooms old and run down. No ensuite shower and common toilets have no locks. Also a lot of noise as you can hear people moving about. Breakfast ok. Would definitely go back to muswell hill but... More

Well where to start, booking in we were asked if we would like to pay by cash or card, which was a little unsettling considering it was paid for online. The receptionist was very rude and had poor spoken English. After the initial argument we got the keys to a very disappointing room....old, dirty, cold and noisy (the walls between... More

Location is ok but that's all good about this place ! The rooms are small , old and stale smelling. The water you can't use at the same time so no sink and shower - very cold takes time to heat up ! Reception very rude and inconsiderate for visited friends. Would say stay away !

Very run down hotel. Stayed in a double room for 3 nights. Room was too warm. Curtains were falling off their railings. Tea/Coffee making facilities in the room - hotel only supplied kettle, 2 mugs and 2 spoons. Window was broken in bathroom so when you were having a wash you had the joy of looking into someone's kitchen. The... More

The room was so dirty, smelly and shabby I couldn't bear to be in it. Me and my partner did not stay the night. When they advertise a room with a shower they mean just that!!! It is right there at the end of the bed!!!! Even though the location is good it is not worth the trauma! The toilets... More

I was looking for cheap accommodation near to the Alexandra Palace as we were going to a gig, and although I read some of the poor reviews on Tripadvisor I still decided to risk it. What a mistake. Although the staff were fairly friendly and helpful, this was the only positive from our stay. The first sign on walking up... More

The staff were very friendly and welcoming, our room was spotless and there was nothing to fault, you get what you pay for and i was more than happy with my stay. The hotel is a short 15 minute walk to Alexandra palace and... More
