I have arrived at this guest house late after midnight. Excellent check-in service done quickly and efficiently by a friendly lady receptionist. The room is simple but very clean and tidy. Bathroom and shower were very clean. Very good value for money and I will definitely go there again.

I tend to go to London for the night quite a lot, so I don't usually bother with fancy accommodations. Usually, the cheapest and decent I can find in Greater London since I spent most of the day away and basically I just look for a place to sleep, in non-shared rooms. I must admit that the actually hotel being... More

I walked down the 4-5 blocks and got checked in, The room was nice, everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. There... More

Just what we needed a bed tv and coffee for a night stay over in London. Everthing was nice and clean. Well prosented and maintained. Not far from Clapham Common which was a nice walk and town, great places to eat and underground was easily accessible.

Handy to pass the texaco/co-op on the way to buy water as no kitchen facilitiess in guesthouse. Guesthouse was ROASTING- radiators on full blast and as you... More

very good. the room is so clean. And the toliet is also clean. But the room is a little noise. And the receiption is better closer to the room to collect the key. The price is cheap. The important is that the transfer is very convince to go to the centre of the London. I like this hotel.

The room was good, spacious and with good beds and a nice bathroom. The house as such appear ed rather run down however . From the outside it looked very tacky, with teared blinds. The room was also quite noisy in the sense that it is a lot of traffic outside and whenever people moved upstairs it sounded like they... More
