We booked this hotel as a room to stay in while we were at a wedding down the road. This is the worst place I have ever stayed (and I have traveled to quite a few countries). The problem with this hotel is that it costs £120 for a room - so you aren't talking cheap - but looks like... More

Staff were friendly and helpful, room was small but what we needed, we only used it for a base, could have done with slightly larger shower area as more of a cabin feel to it, and facilities could do with refurbishment in the bathroom too, little smell of something in there, apart from that it was good and clean in...

This is what I describe as place that provides a roof over your head. Most guests seem to be tradesmen working in the area. The bedroom/bed were compact but clean. The shower was not much more than a dribble in a small cubicle ( there's a joke there somewhere!). I have used it twice when staying overnight to see bands... More

Stayed here for one night last weekend. The hotel is located down a back alley of a broken down building, view of all night noisy garage, curtains stunk of smoke, broken shower rail, plug sockets went off at night... Stay somewhere else.

We arrived at the hotel at 14:10pm, but the rooms weren't ready. Asked to wait in a dim lit room whilst the rooms were finished. After 20 minutes one room was ready, but we were asked to wait another 20 minutes for our room to be ready. Went into my relatives room, only to be told the toilet didn't flush,... More

Stayed here this weekend- whole hotel stunk of curry. We found a condom packet on the floor and pubic hairs in the shower! The hot water was not consistent so it was either cold or boiling periodically and you had to jump out quick as it was so hot it would burn. Staff were unfriendly did not apologise for the... More

The location for access to central London and all the tourist attractions , is excellent ,just a quick bus or tube ride. The staff were very friendly and helpful we would definitely stay again on next... More

We stayed here after a night out and didn't expect much. We booked a family room which came with a double and 2 single beds which took up almost all the floor space. The shower room was the tiniest I've ever seen but did the job. Unlike some others we did have a problem finding it, tucked away down a... More
