Fair Enough we've only paid around £100 for a night in London but this hotel is something else. Tiny rooms, even smaller showers (with some very questionable substances like rust and soap scum all around it) and not at all friendly staff. The rooms barely have any reception at all and you have to pay for wifi. Overall, the location... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during Wimbledon. The main reason was the location. Location: Close to the Earls Court underground station, shops, cafés. Price: £120/ night for double bed, not worth it. Room: Very SMALL. The 2 of us had to walk sideways & struggling to find space for our 2 luggage. The "double" bed was more like a... More

There was two of us. We arrived to a clean, cheap room. Working TV etc. No complaints, we only stayed one day which worked out £15 each!!! in London and not a hostel! No complaints. Would recommend it if travelling on a budget.

I booked at this hotel before reading reviews on here and after reading them was absolutely terrified at going... Firstly let me say getting a triple room in London for £90 isn't easy and we are a young family so are on a budget we were only staying 1 night so took spate sheets and pillow cases as most reviews...

This hotel is probably typical of hotels in this price range. We barely managed to squeeze 2 people into the room with our luggage. The breakfast was very skimpy and no coffee in the lobby area for early risers. The toilet didn't flush the first night and the hair dryer never worked. However the staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

Oh my, what a let down. I had looked on the web but what I got in reality was nothing like their advertisements. We wee 3 adults in a supposed Triple Room. How they managed to get 3 single beds into this room I don't know but they did. We couldn't move around, the room was stifling hot, they had... More

Yes, I had read what other people had written - but not before I booked the hotel... Positives first: we are a family of four and there are not too many hotels offering familyrooms and this one was quite good size. We actually had pretty good wi-fi the hole time, which was important to our 17-year old at least... We... More

I had read the reviews of this hotel and was expecting the worst. We had to find the cheapest hotel we could find in the area as we were students visiting for an event being held at earls court. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the station and restaurants and a 10 minute walk to Earls court entrance.... More

Having read mostly bad reviews we were expecting the worst. Fortunately it was better than expected! We had 2 twin rooms, one large on the lower ground floor, one cramped on the 2nd floor. The furnishings were basic but clean and the beds quite comfortable. The hotel has several steps at the entrance and no handrail. The breakfast rooms can... More
