You buy two old houses and you get 4 star hotel with small rooms, really steep stairs and breakfast room far too small for all guests. What you will get for breakfast you can smell long before you will get to breakfast room since kitchen was never meant to be here. On arrival our room was dirty (sticky floor in... More

We stayed in this hotel for my birthday weekend with friends. The location is good and the rooms were nice but the service could have been much better. The receptionist watched us struggle with our luggage instead of offering help. My friend went to check in and finally agreed to paying on departure like every other hotel. On check out,... More

Hotel is in good location, just few min walk from British Museum, and if I add a well working wifi and comfy bed - that's all I can say that it's good about it. Unfortunately there are more negatives rhan positives. For sure it's not a place for people with claustrophobia. My room was the tiniest hotel room I've ever... More

We requested a room move due to the first one being extremely dirty, lots of hair in the bed, dead flies in the light fittings and badly stained walls and furniture and even the ceiling had a dead fly quashed on it! The second room was just as dirty but the bed appeared clean with a new mattress. The manager,... More

Stayed at this hotel on 7th September following a late booking on late rooms, room rate including breakfast was £65.00 for a single. I have read the reviews prior to my visit but given that I was visiting for a meeting the following day, for this rate I thought would give it a try. Given that the location of this... More

Great location. Booked when we couldn't get the hotel we wanted. A little pricey for what you get. Small and quirky but reasonably comfortable. We had room 5LG (lower ground cellar room which looked cave-like!) and booked the small single room for our 21-yr old daughter. Hers was basically a storage cupboard turned into a bedroom. Don't book if you're... More

This hotel is in a fantastic and safe location. Hotel has great street appeal. I was traveling solo at the time and my room was no larger than a shoebox, room only for the bed and the suitcase. Basic cleanliness. There was nowhere in the hotel to go and sit to read, watch television or have a cup of tea.... More

After reading the reviews I was 50/50 about how the hotel would be. However I was bitterly disappointed and at the end of our holiday it was not a nice ending. Firstly the person on reception was the least helpful and welcoming Ive ever had experience of, alittle bit like he was doing a favour letting us stay. When I... More
