Not really sure what people are after, it's a cheap 2* hotel in a nice area of London. We wanted a hotel that didn't cost the earth, which was clean, came with breakfast and most importantly was walkable to Ally Pally - this one ticked all the boxes. Not massively keen on leaving the key at reception but we did... More

Even though this hotel is cheap and cheerful I still expected to have shower that's not right opposite the bed! No door....literally in the room you're staying! Still too expensive for what it is! Fairly close to Alexandra palace though which was our aim....

I didn't expect much for the price, but I did expect cleanliness, which was sadly lacking. The TV and Wi-Fi reception were good, but the rooms were shabby. The bedding looked like it hadn't been changed, the towels were threadbare and torn and the sullen service at breakfast left a bad impression. We didn't dare order more than toast at... More

I stayed there for 3 nights for a recent convention at Ally Pally. It was close, I didn't have my stuff stolen from the room, so my experience wasn't terrible. (You have t leave your hotel key at the desk when you leave, which made me quite uncomfortable) However, the shower and sink were right next to my bed in... More

Very basic, fine for a cheap overnight accommodation, if you get a bargain less than 60 per night for 2 it's ok but would not rush back! Breakfast held in a room like a student hall, basic chairs tables etc. this is definitely no frills hotel. There are better hotels around if you book early.

Stayed here at the end of last year for a night in between digs. Clean, safe with a maze-like layout, this was perfectly adequate for one night. But I asked to be away from the main road and the staff member who checked me in had an English problem and put me on the very noisy Queens Avenue...by the time... More

The facilities are very basic and quite frankly below par on a number of levels (kettle that you had to hold the lid down to make it boil, trickling shower, sewerage coming up from the depths, a hot rap where the whole tap twists). Beds were highly uncomfortable and you are limited to one pillow per person! Full English breakfast... More
