A bit pricy considering what type of room you get, but I suppose it is because of the location. It is walking distance to the main underground lines and some of London's main attractions. Breakfast included in the price is standard English breakfast so don't expect something too fancy. A continental breakfast is available on request.

Ok, the rooms are really small and tiny and, at least in mine, even moving inside was really a problem. But where you can find a really large room in the center of London at a fair price? The bathroom ensuite was ok. The location is excellent. It is next to the Tube station of Goodge Street, not far from... More

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
