Okay so this isn't 4 star luxury, but it is good value for money! We stayed for 4 nights in 219 which was right at the top of the building, a lot of stairs but hey we are young and fit! The room was just what we needed, we had plenty of space, a comfy bed with fresh clean sheets,... More

I feel that the other reviews of this place are a little unfair. I stayed here two nights and was impressed by both the price and the cleanliness. The hotel was recommended to me by a friend who described it the same way I would: basic, clean, cheap and central. It does not only have great tube links but is... More

I agree with sirjoker's review in every respect: 107((http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g186338-d568185-r194955148-City_View_Hotel_London-London_England.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT I was staying in the room 107 too. The only good thing about it is the vicinity of the bus and underground station. Unfortunately, my friends booked and payed for B&B in advance for 2 nights without reading the reviews. The breakfast is inedible. They serve neither English nor the continental... More

We stayed at this hotel without reading any of the reviews, if we had read the reviews we probably would not have stayed there. We have to say that we definitely agree with most of the reviews already written , but we also think that it was fine for the amount of money we paid, room was very basic but... More

Worst hotel ever!! Do not come here in any circumstance. Guy doesn't know how to speak English. I could have paid the same price for travelodge which was 30 seconds away for a better service and room. The bed was very itchy and I kept waking up due to the noise and smell so I decided to leave. 3hours spent... More

Stayed here in March and really disappointed. Breakfast might as well not existed as they tried to pass off a slice of warmed stale bread as toast and nothing else. The best thing about this place is its location in comparison to the tube station. Bed bugs, broken sockets and light switches, and windows with pains of glass missing are... More

I read some of the reviews on here after booking, and was, quite frankly, terrified. However was going on a hen night which was already expensive and didn't want to spend money on a place that I was going to be in for about 3 hours. Actually it was ok. It looks a bit like Bates motel, but I found... More

Don't go here if you can't sleep through the noise of trains: they run right past the building and there can be a lot of rattling. Accommodation is pretty basic, but was clean. Breakfast is lacklustre: only cereal they seem to have is corn flakes, and every morning they got our order slightly wrong. Room is pretty small and doesn't... More

As someone who has worked in hotels for a very long time I was appalled at the standard or should I say lack of standard at this hotel. It seems very odd that good reviews have appeared immediately after I gave a critical analysis to one of the family owners who also work here. Non smoking rooms, No signs in... More
