Affordable accommodation in London. Close to Euston & Russell Square stations. Beds are comfy however rooms and bathrooms are a little outdated. Lack of powerpoints make charging a little too restrictive. Can be challenging to navigate around hotel with a very confusing numbering system. No Wifi facilities in hotel however access to london's cloud network is accessible from the pub... More

Budget hotel – don’t expect anything fancy. Rooms were clean, but quite dated. Although I was travelling with a friend, we were placed in separate rooms due to how we booked (she was in a triple room vs. myself in a double room). The section of the hotel we were in was more like a hostel – we were sharing... More

Stayed four nights here. Had given us a twin instead of double room, but single guy next to us booking in had got double room and they could not change coz he was only staying 2 nights!! Great location and is about all that is going for it. Breakfast was havoc, and uninspiring. Ended up by going to the cafe... More

This Hotel is very central. It is a matter of minutes walk to the Russell st tube station and the Brunswick shopping centre which have some very nice restaurants and the British Museum. I had seen some negative reviews on this hotel before leaving so I was a bit nervous on going but it was all fine. There were three... More

This hotel had the basics for a London trip that was centrally located to everything around. The breakfast, though rather bland, was very plentiful and filling that got us off to a good start of sightseeing. However, there could have been provided, some fresh fruit and Nutella to put on the bread. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Though... More

I've stayed in this hotel a few times now and every time I think the same think it's exactly what you pay for...a bed. It's not flash and fancy but it serves a purpose. The rooms are basic and clean and the breakfast has actually got better and there is always enough. If you are looking for a nice posh... More
