I stayed at this hotel on 8th December as we wanted to be local to covent garden. They charged us £179 for 1 night without breakfast which I feel was a rip off. They obviously know they can charge this because of location! The look from the outside and the ground floor was ok but the room was tiny, my... More

Booked up to stay here as it looked nice, not the cheapest but was kind of last minute so it was fine. When we got there we were told our room was having building work done (sorry but surely that level of building work would have been in the diary well before I booked up!) was told they had booked...

We arrived on Saturday 13th sept, to be told there was no room. We were allocated a hotel nearby, the pacific, which was terrible. The price did not fit the standard of the hotel. Wish we had stayed in a b&b. No information given to us about anything. Missed breakfast on Sunday at 10am, because finished at 0900, which we... More

I went to stay at Royal Cambridge Hotel in early September based on the recommendation of my friends. The hotel was recently refurbish and the room I stayed was nice and modern . In addition, the hotel is within walking distance to Paddington train and tube station which is convenient for me. I would definitely stay at this hotel again... More

We recently stayed at The Royal Cambridge Hotel. The hotel is dark and stuff and in great need of a revamp. The rooms are very small and not very clean, our bathroom mat had mould all over it and we only had one towel for the two of us. The air conditioning consisted of one small fan. We had a... More

Booked hotel through booking.com and paid in advance for a triple room for 2 nights. Had a delay leading up to our stay so I emailed the hotel in advance to notify them we would only stay the 2nd night. Received no reply. When we arrived the receptionist advised the room was occupied by other guests and suggested we look... More

It's terrible! The rooms are in really bad conditions and the staff is horrendous. It's a NO NEVER PLACE to even pass nearby! The breakfast is all plastic. There are dirt everywhere and hoorible noise and smell. It is not worthy 3 stars...not even 1. It's low, really low service.

This Hotel was awful, dirty bed linen, dirty floors, no staff, no food. I would advise that no-one should stay here until they fully refurb the building, total waste of money, i would have rather chucked money away then stay here again. SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN.

No water on arrival. No electric sockets for entire stay. I complained to both Night Duty Staff and morning Receptionist and still nothing done. Building work carried out directly outside room. Tripping over planks of wood, plaster dust and debris plus cables and electric drills. They should never have let the room whilst this was in operation. Workmen arrived early... More
