As the title suggests this hotel is not what you would call "nice" but it is very close to stamford bridge and so we chose this one. The rooms were very small, and you couldn't move about inside, but we didn't spend much time in the hotel (2300-0900) basically just to sleep and shower. We paid just under 160 €... More

Room had stains and chips all over then walls. Sheets were dirty and had hairs all over them. The shower was broken as was the tv ,only sound came out of it. Would not go back if you have any standards do not stay here!! Terrible nights stay. Even though it was cheap it wasn't worth what I paid.

Well it was clean and the girl on reception was friendly and it was £16.50pp for somewhere to sleep after going to Stamford Bridge. Unfortunately the bed was really uncomfortable and there is lots of external noise. Basically you get what you pay for but I don't think I'd stay again.

Friendly & helpful staff. Room a bit small and old but love the location - 3 mins walk to the train station. The TV was not working for our 3days 2 nights stay there. Complaint made but was still not attended to when we checked out. No wifi in the room. Wifi only available at the lobby on ground floor.... More

For a very cheap booking, the hotel isn't exactly going to be high end. It was basic, and I think the price we paid reflected that. The location was great for us, as it was a minute walk away from the underground and if you carry walking along the main road the hotel is pretty much on, there are several... More

No sink plug and luke warm "cold water". Windows to celler room broken and rotten. No wifi at all (maybe they havnt paid the bill). Noise... More
