Staff (reception & kitchen) was very friendly I must say, bed was very comfortable and bathroom clean (tho very small). It's OK for one night but I would not stay there more and I would not go there again. The walls are very thin, you can hear everything that is said (or done ...) next door! I had a russian... More

I booked this for my teenage daughter and friend just for one night after they went to see the Libertines in Hyde Park. It was one of the cheapest hotels close to Hyde park, though not much cheaper than others closer to HP. My mistake was not to first check on tripadvisor (how bad can it be? I thought). The... More

After reading some of the other reviews on this hotel I was expecting something truly awful. What I got was OK... Stayed in room 107, was small but had everything I needed for a week on business. Room was always clean and tidy. Some things about this place we're comical, the door keys being attached to curtain ties. The height... More
