This is not a hotel for any kind of special occasion. The promotional pictures are very outdated. The rooms are small and airless with a tiny sink. You have shared baths (with showers over them) and toilets. Our sheets, pillow cases and towels were very clean, but the quality of the sheets leaves your elbows and heels sore if you... More

When we missed our last train and my phone battery was dead we went round all of the hotels and this was the only one with a room free. It was grotty, dated, and over priced even considering the location. I certainly wouldn't recommend the breakfast either. With some advanced planning there are better hotels in London for the same...

I could go on and on about the many imperfections of this hotel - the general worn out feel, the shabbiness, etc - but frankly if you expect anything else for the price then you need a reality check. I paid £59 for a bunk room, including breakfast. The beds were comfortable, the staff pleasant and the breakfast was delicious.... More

Booked this hotel for a nearby conference in June 2014. The hotel is a short walk from Russell Square station, and had a quick check in process. The corridors are decorated in an old 80's style, and the rooms are sparsely decorated. I had a single bed, desk, chair and sink with two lights. The bathrooms are shared between corridors.... More

This hotel has been our London budget hotel of choice for the last 10 years and we enjoyed returning here July 2014. It is the budget option in the Imperial chain of hotels and can be booked from their internet website. For an astonishingly low price for London (we paid 66 pounds for a double room for two), you get... More

Nice hotel have stayed on several occasions but a shame the pub as gone and is now a coffee bar as was looking forward to a pint and it was the cheapest pub in London so disappointed that it was no longer part of the hotel. Please bring the pub back

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a whole week. The room was fairly clean, no odd smells, the beds were very soft, and we could feel the springs in our backs when sleeping. Not that pleasant, but it was a good nights sleep anyway. No loud noises, except when guests slamming the doors in, which happened quite... More
