Stayed here for 1 night on the 7th of July in a triple room and was pretty happy with the overall standard, but wouldn't want to stay for more than a couple of nights. Yes, there are bad points to the hotel, but let's start with the positive things: The beds and carpets were very clean and the tea and... More

Do not book a compact single if you are over 5ft 2 and womans size 14. The bed was very comfortable and all the fittings in the bathroom were of an excellent standard but of necessity - compact - hand wash basin is that - about the third of a size to normal. Room/housekeeping was very good and the standard... More

SHOCKING !!! booked a room £75 for 1 night, I thought not too bad, it said that it was a cabin room so I expected something small but NOT A 6ft long room by 5ft wide box !!! The en-suit was the size of a double wardrobe. It's a good job that I'm not claustrophobic as I would be having... More

I tried this hotel because the price for two nights was attractive. I regretted it as soon as I arrived. The single room was just thirty inches wide, apart from the area where the single bed was, under the window. There was nowhere to put anything apart from a narrow shelf above three wall hangers. It was very warm and... More

I needed a cheap place to stay for a night in London, and although the reviews were less than favourable, I found the experience to be fine and pleasant. I had a tiny room (cabin size), which was fine by me since I am small myself, with my own bathroom. The bathroom, although tiny, had modern facilities, and was in... More

I travel widely throughout the world on a regular basis. This is by far the worst hotel I've stayed in. They misrepresent their advertisement of 4 stars. I've stayed in 3 star hotels in India that are better. There is no air conditioning in the middle of summer. They have a crappy wi-fi connection. The photos of the rooms and... More

Having to spend a couple of nights in the Metropolis for work I researched the options and this one came out best for price and location whilst providing en suite facilities. Anything cheaper and you're sharing a bathroom. So, on that basis, this hotel is good value for money. But, be prepared for when you open the door to your... More

I knew London prices are very high, and when I booked this at a what I thought to be a reasonable price, assumed things would be just okay, I knew I'd be out and about most of the time. Well, if you're a big person, or overweight, or claustrophobic keep looking, at least DON'T choose the single room! I'm none... More

We wanted a night in London, close to theatre land, so that we could easily walk back to the hotel after the show. Having been put off rather by the ~£300 per night prices some hotels in the area charge, we found the Bloomsbury Palace Hotel at just £155 for B&B. First off the good points, excellent location, friendly and... More

I booked this hotel for my mum, coming to visit me with a couple of friends. I choose it because I was looking for a nice place, easy to find and going around, so they could be slightly independent, with a decent size of rooms and a nice service. This was one of the cheapest, even if rather expensive, roughly... More
