I booked a twin room to share with my cousin. It is not even nearly big enough to accommodate 2 single beds. It may be ok as a single room or a squishy double but I felt uncomfortable climbing over my cousin to go to the toilet at night. The drawers could not be opened properly as they were too... More

If you're looking for a budget hotel near central London then you can go wrong with this place. One of the cleanest hotels in us price range I have stayed in in London. Right by Earls Court Tube and high street. My room had a lovely refurbished ensuite and lovely crisp white linen on the bed. All I needed...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in October. It was 159 pounds for 2 people to stay 3 nights without breakfast. We stayed in room 302 and although the room was miserably small and the walls paper thin I was happy that it was at least clean! The bathroom had been recently renovated and the bedding was... More

Of all the places I`ve traveled around the world this has to be by far the most shocking! Everything was wrong about it from broken beds to exposed carpet nails (see pictures) The pillows were like rocks, bathroom was tiny and the walls slimy, I`d rather sleep in the tube station than stay in this armpit of London!

Room very clean but definatly too small for two people. No lift and no air con. Very uncomfortable if you are staying in a really hot day, like us. It's cheap, ok for one night in London . Location was good,only a few minutes walk to station. Pillows were quite hard and making tea in the thin plastic cups didn't... More

The romm is in basement. This is my first time to stay in basement room in a hotel. It is definitely not three star hotel. The sidewalk is just beside the small above ground window. You can see people’s feet walking by through the little windon. It is nosiy and hot. The hotel should tell people they will stay in... More

On the positive side, the location is great, close to the tube, on the corner of a leafy square & near a clutch of shops, pubs & restaurants. The room was clean, with en suite, hair dryer, soap, clean towels & bed linen & the room cleaned daily. The staff were good & the cost cheap for London. However, there... More

The staff here, particularly Disha and Valy, should be working in a 5 star hotel - they are the best hotel staff we have ever come across! They couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome, and were so helpful at all times. The room was pretty dreadful. Drab and way too hot (no air conditioning), dirty curtains, stained carpet... More
