Well what can I say, my self and my husband arrived at The Ventures Hotel' full of anticipation and excitement. (We had not read the reviews before hand however we booked through booking.com and we have never had a bad hotel through them before) We work hard (as do most) so we were looking forward to a weekend in London...

We ve been there for four nights while a short trip. A friend booked this place via booking. And there the references haven't been that bad. But after these four nights I can only confirm what others said. But the location and its connection to public transport there is not much positive to find. Old and shabby rooms. Dark and... More

We chose this hotel because of its central location but our room was very dirty, electrics (in the form if an extension cable on the wall) didn't work and the bedding was insufficient. There was no mattress cover and the sheet was so thin you could see the stripes on the mattress through the sheet. We chose not to stay... More

This has to be the most awful hotel I have ever stayed on. This hotel is rated as a three star on booking.com I wouldn't even call it a one star. It's intimidating, dirty, massively over priced, dangerous - doors don't close - electrics are hanging off the wall - 2 star rating for food. All I can say is... More

After a 14 hour day of graft I checked into The Ventures Hotel anticipating a warm shower and comfortable bed. I turn the shower on to be greeted by freezing water, hoping it would warm up I left it running... half an hour later - still freezing. I went to reception to complain where I was met by another guest... More

This hotel is extremely misleading in their booking pictures. The website looks like an acceptable budget hotel. But I'm unsure where those rooms are... The room is tiny which gives you the pleasure of sleeping next to an empty fridge. The bathroom is so dirty it almost looks like it hasn't been cleaned. The hotel stinks of cigarettes and the...

Over priced hotel in ok area. Small rooms, and that's ok, if the room is clean. Our rooms were dirty with big hand prints on the walls and the light switch was brown instead of withe. No toilet paper in the bathroom and only one, small towel for two persons.
