I stayed there a year ago so my review is writing with much gooder eye than it should be.
The bad things-
-The bad is awful (i stayed in a single room) and it's tiny and the mattress is really bumpy and the thought i had the first night was "how would i stand it for 8 nights?!" well, it's get better after one night (lucky back)
-The shower reminded me the worst facilities (and even there be sure you have place to put your soap/shampoo).
Really uncomfortable and skimpy, and the fact it was all small made it worse.
-Breakfest, my friend did and enjoyed it +/-, me not so much, i barely ate it, very basic toasts (you need to wait some time to get) jams, cold boild egg, horrbile orange juice from a box (like in all london). i recommend order something small in the burger king near by or somewhere else- much teaster :)
-Ladies- you will need to ask for a air dryer- and hope it's not all used (??) i got it a few hours after i asked for it but they needed to check if they have a spare one..
-pretty noisy from out side if you are staying in the new year like us.
The good things-
-24 hours reception
The bottom line is i won't be back to this hotel, i think you can get more in the same amount, it's poor and it's supposed to be for a 2 stars hotel.
The mattress and lack of thinking of more basic stuff really lower the rate for me.
But it's not the worse and the good stuff covers more or less.
