We booked a double room here. It was tiny, extremely hot and the window faced the window of what appeared to be the living room of a house opposite about ten feet away, so very little privacy whenever the window was open. The room could really have done with something more than a grimy desk fan to cool it down... More

We spent two nights in this tiny bedroom where you couldn't barely walk around the bed, the room was hot, with a tiny desk fan. The bed was hard not to mention sounding like it was going to break. The curtains were not fixed properly so the residents from the building next door could see in. For a B&B we... More

This place really took the prize for the worst hotel in London. Rated 4 star but the rooms are in filthy condition. The management and hotel reception are ignorant and are only interested in your money. There were incidents where hotel staff are untruthful, appalling and unprofessional. I do no recommend this hotel not even for an overnight stay.

How on earth this dingy guest house can have a 4 star rating in the city of London is beyond belief. 26 degrees with a fan in the basement! Curtains fixed both ends so you could not pull them back (not surprising with the when you see the view when you actually lift the bottom up)

I was surprise to see the hotel transformed completely under new management. I stayed four years ago and the condition was so bad.The hotel is painted all in white giving an effect of Marble. I paid £40.00 plus VAT exactly as the discounted price outside for the late walk in. A fair deal for central London so close to Oxford... More

I stay at this hotel very regularly, not only because it is convenient for work, but because the staff are polite and reliable; the rooms, although small, are clean with TV, fridge, and drinks; it is close to Baker St, Oxford St etc, and for a very reasonable price. The cheapest rooms are not en-suite. I only use a hotel... More

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I’ve booked a double room and a studio with two double beds. The studio beds were a sofa and a matrass on the mezzanine’s floor, which was very near the ceiling, so if my daughter wanted to seat on the matrass she would have to be very careful otherwise she...

I had to stay in London at short notice for a night, I was initially put off by some of the reviews but it seems they have come under new management. Before I booked my room, the staff showed me the room so I could check it was suitable. The room was rather narrow, but had an en suite, kettle,... More

upon arrival the main mission of the guy behind the reception desk was to get more cash off of me for a bigger room, little did I know when i said a single room is big enough as i am here by myself. when i walked into room 216 i was stunned, to say the room was narrow is an... More
