In a place where I'm booking a lot of low cost low quality hotels in London at the moment, and this was the one I "chose" this week. Whilst I am now used to these places, and I know you generally get what you pay for, this one really was one I wouldn't recommend. In reception a lady slept across... More

keep away from this dreadful hotel unless you like peeled wallpaper in the hallway, loose laid ceramic tiles in the bathroom and water fountains from the connection hose of the shower. The 'manager' was very unhelpful as was the 'owner' who didn't like me pointing out all the faults and showed us no sympathy.

Do not be fooled by the word "Hotel" in the name of this Kip. This place is a half step up from a skip. How kips like this are allowed to operate is beyond believable. A reception desk held together with box tape was not a promising sign on entry, the double room was arrived at via a network of... More

I wish I could give less than one star. This is probably the worst hotel experience of my life. I paid 130 pounds for two nights during June 2015. Very poor service, No refreshments in the room, not even a cup. No tea bag, coffee etc but a kettle only. Noisy and awkward - in the basement with a window... More

At £44 for a single room, you're not gonna get much cheaper for a "hotel" in London. Although I think the word hotel to describe this place is a little optimistic on their part. The room was minuscule, in itself not a huge problem. The room backed in to the main road so it was very noisy in the room.... More

This "hotel" is a complete dump. Best recommendation is that it is next to a tube line and has a breakfast thrown in. But the rooms are shabby, the shower is in (or actually on) the toilet. No in room facilities. The fire alarm went off at 6am in the annex, and whilst waiting in the cold I noticed a... More

The room was booked as it was the cheapest option available. But only and only book if you have no place to live. The rooms were right next to a rail track and when a train was passing it seemed that we were in an Earthquake Zone. The hotel's lobby is also the living room for the owners family along... More

I booked to stay at this hotel and cancelled my booking without charge. This was through booking.com. I then realised I had been charged for the stay and upon getting in touch with the hotel, they refused to refund me even though they could not evidence how the 'second' booking was made. Shocking service and clearly just a bunch of... More

We arrived at the "Hotel" and were told to wait in a lounge area which was also used by the workers children. we waited for about 40 minutes until our rooms were ready. when we got up to the rooms they were clean enough so no problems there. we looked out of the window to check out any view but...
