Basic is one thing, but this hotel is not even classifiable as basic. It was like something out of a horror movie. No one ever answers the phone, no one on reception. Creepiest place I've been ever, torn carpets, really dodgy cellar to get drinks/ breakfast. The doors in the room shake as though someone is trying to get in... More

This B&B was a pleasant surprise. After reading reviews here we almost cancelled our booking, luckily we didn´t. Our room was clean and big enough. Great location, comfy beds, clean newly tiled bathroom. At this price one can´t get a better hotel in central London.

On arrival I was pleasantly surprised as the decor was lovely and it looked clean (!) however as described by others there... More

We arrived at about 6pm on a Saturday, and waited 15-20 minutes in the lobby after being told by the young man behind the desk that he'd be right back. Once he'd returned and dealt with two vocally unhappy customers, he gave us our keycard and directed us to our room. He was friendly but clearly left to manage the... More

Stayed here for one night, January 10th 2014. To be fair, the receptionist was pretty good, he was polite, explained everything and made us feel very welcome. Also, the hotel is in a reasonably good location, and we easily found places to dine in the evening. Unfortunately, the actual hotel is looking very tired indeed - the carpets are visibly... More

I went on a 2 day drama trip to London with my school and I had the worst holiday ever. Everything about the hotel made me sick and I am not exaggerating. The wallpaper and carpets were peeling, all the bedding was stained and I am not even going to talk about the bathroom because just the thought makes me... More
