Extremely misleading adverising - smelly, dirty, beds unchanged (pubic hairs and stains on sheets), no air conditioning except a tiny window above a dilapidated sink held open with an empty cigarette packet - DO NOT BOTHER - got money back and went elsewhere

The staff are kindly and you get hot breakfast 6 days a week, the breakfast lady's are nice... More

I cannot stress enough how awful the night stay at this hotel was. My boyfriend and I had a very long, tiring trip too London and couldn't wait to arrive at the hotel. As soon as we walked in, the staff stared at us for what felt like hours like we were late or something when it was only 10pm... More

My husband and I stayed here twice in June as we were going to Hyde Park for the festivals. It was an excellent hotel, great location, staff were very friendly. In fact, we had booked to stay somewhere different but after our first visit we decided to go back to the Ventures hotel for a second time as we liked... More

The rooms are old and the whole place reeks of cigarette smoke. The hotel is in an ethnic neighbourhood and is a bit scary to walk around in at night. The breakfast included is pretty good - eggs, meat, beans, toast, instant coffee, orange juice. The hotel is very close to the edgwater metro station, which is probably why they... More

Very nice hotel, employees are willing to help and they try to answer all questions you have as well as they can. Hotel is close to Underground station which is very nice and helpful. Hotel looks nice and price is pretty good too. It was a good choice.

I stayed at a different hotel and somehow these lot got my card details, took payment and refused point blank to reimburse even though I contacted them immediately after they took the payment. Booking.com were equally as dismissive and rude and were amused by this. Avoid both.

Do not choose this hotel, if i can even call it that. The rooms looks nothing like the ads. One person at the front desk gave my mother attitude for constantly coming back and forth. The rooms were very small and it was well overpriced

I stayed in the room for about 4 days, I had no problem at all, the bed was ok so as the shower. The localization it's good,close to underground stations and from a avenue with a lots of restaurants and food options. There was also a guy very helpful at the reception that helped me to book a taxi.
