I had the misfortune of staying 2 nights, in the basement, no wifi, no tv, in a prison cell. I have never stayed anywhere like it and i don't even want to talk about the experience now I'm home. I think I'm suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome. Don't do it to yourself

I have only just returned home from London and stayed in the Jenkins hotel for just one night. I will attempt to give you the good and bad points so you can make an informed choice about your stay here. The room was very compact, to the point of being able to touch the wall both sides from the bed.... More

Single beds are very small. Bathroom good. Breakfast good. Receptionist was not at all welcoming when we arrived. Mismatch of furniture in room. Free wifi but had to go to hotel across the road to ask for code as no phone in room.

We booked this hotel online based on proximity to the station and the photos on their website. The rooms appeared to be spacious and clean and newly decorated according to their advertising. However on checking in, we discovered that our room was in the basement, we had to lug our own bags up AND down stairs to get there, the... More

I had a business trip in London and needed a hotel that was close to the station as I didn't want to drag my suitcase around London with me; the Jenkins Hotel allowed me to drop my suitcase off at 9am prior to official check in time. The reception staff were friendly & helpful. The room is small and clean,... More

There were some good things, honestly! The lovely ladies at breakfast were really helpful and attentive. The room was very clean and the receptionist on the desk was very friendly. Sadly, there it ends! I booked this hotel after viewing its website. It's in a lovely area, which of course can't be faulted, and looked to be beautifully appointed and... More
