Booked here for a couple of nights but had to leave it and find other accommodation. This place really is the pits and I'm no stranger to staying in dumps. The room was filthy and the carpet was covered in toe-nail clippings. I would rather sleep in my car.

The only thing I can say is it was cheap. With that said, I would rather sleep in a tube station (it's cleaner)! Shower dirty, room dirty, wifi not reliable, dirty sheet for a curtain. Hands down the nastiest place I have ever stayed.

The room look like its need a good clean. The carpet look really grubby. There was bits of furniture that was incomplete from the wardrobe just hiding behind the bed. There was cups for tea and coffee but no kettle. The unfinish wardrobe had not even 1 coat hanger.

On arrival I was asked to pay for the whole week which I did after a long day on site. On arrival to our rooms we found them to be absolutely disgusting. We decided to have a drink in the bar where a fight broke out and men were hitting women. Things were going from bad to worse. I asked... More

The rooms and bathrooms were clean enough, fridge in my room, TV working, and who knows what the breakfast taste like since I could swear that the bar tendresse told me I had till 9 30 am and she was wrong. The bar seemed sweet with mixed age locals. Nice walk from the transpo stations. Make sure you know your... More

We were attending a gig at Olympic Park which we knew would mean we would be checking in at... More

Complete garbage. Do not stay here. One of our rooms had a shower in it however it did not drain. Did a little fishing with a coat hanger and caught a large wad of hair. The complementary cups in the room had a pube in it. The room refreshments consisted of a lone tea bag that wasn't even packaged. Word... More
