I was looking for a cheap hotel for a night when in London for a training course and tried this place to find out what it was like. I can recommend it if money is the most important issue (as it could be for a trades person working away from home). The accommodation is basic, like a pod or cabin... More

Staff were quite rude on arrival and didn't seem interested - we left our baggage as room wasn't ready and we were going into London so adv we would be back late. When we returned the gate was locked and when someone answered adv that we were staying and again quite rude when asking for details. When we got to... More

Stayed here a while ago with a friend, got to the hotel late at night via taxi from the tube which was about 10 minutes walk and the taxi man charged us £9!!! Disgrace. Front of house staff was kind of rude arguing with me that I didn't pay for the hotel, which I had. There was only one plug... More

We had a bad experience. Room was clean only on the first day and staff was not friendly. Price was OK but the stay was not comfortable. We even thought of changing the hotel but due to paucity of time we did not changed.

The name really does say it all; budget. Rooms are very cheaply furnished; very bare bones and starign to show their age. This goes to the extend that all you get is a small bar of soap; no shampoo or anything. The whole room stank of cigarettes in spite of the hotel saying it's non-smoking. The bed smelled bad, there... More

I still have a locker room whiff in my nostrils whenever I think of my two-day stay in this hotel. OK, it's budget but for £99 a night I'd like a little fragrance thrown in to the deal. The room was like some sort of futuristic prison, devoid of furniture other than a hanging rail for clothes and the bed.... More

For a budget hotel the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Furniture is basic-bed, desk and hanging rail-but adequate for needs. Price is per room so if 2-3 are staying it is very cheap-not so much for the lone traveller. Plenty of free on-site parking as a bonus

The good points first: the beds were nice and comfortable, clean and each bed had its own light which was a good touch. The room was quite warm but there was a window which we opened, I personally had no problem with the noise of the traffic outside. The blind successfully blocked out most light. Bad points: the toilet. It... More

Awful hotel, please avoid at all cost! I stayed here for 2 nights and would not recommend this hotel at all, especially since it is not the cheapest!
