I have stayed for 10 days in this hotel and it was a pleasant stay. Its not a fantastic hotel, but I don't have many things to complain. The price was reasonable and the location was excellent (near several tube stations). My room and bathroom was cleaned everyday and there was free wifi everwhere in the hotel. They serve a... More

Hotel was well positioned for tube stations. We stayed in the family room it was clean , spacious,comfortable includes a microwave and fridge. No complaints would definitely stop there again as a base. Value for money.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel from 15-19 September 2014. Their rooms are basic, the double bed seemed smaller than a normal queen size and our room was on the first floor. There is no ceiling fan in the room and no air-conditioning either. We slept with the window open. This hotel does not have a lift so... More

We spent 2 nights at the hotel and in general were okay with the service we got. Staff was courteous. However the room was rather disappointing; the walls had stains from earlier water leaks, stained pictures hung crookedly on the walls, and the toilet had trouble flushing. In terms of the hotel location, it was perfect! It was literally a... More

Biggest mistake to stay here. I actually booked it by mistake. I have never seen such a filthy and nasty dwelling. It stinks and there is no sense of hygiene. Just traumatizing. Run as fast as you can.

My brother and I stayed at the Ventures for one night. He booked the hotel through booking.com without looking at the reviews. Once I saw several of the reviews my expectations were to say the least low. In the event the room , although small, was newly painted and clean. The bathroom was quite large and clean with a good...

Let me start by saying this hotel was booked in error... I am not stupid, I can and have read the myriad of horrific reviews about this hotel. The knowledge that this was going to be bad did nothing to pacify me upon arriving at this derelict, miserable, filthy, cold, smelly, dank hole of a building. Please stop referring to... More

Very basic, in a poor level of repair and not very clean. Rooms were cramped, dingy and furniture broken. Staff were fine. Not a pleasant place to stay, not very secure. Can be very noisy as many walls are very thin.
