The staff were friendly but the rooms were very basic with no frills whatsoever and it was like a hostel more than a hotel. Shared shower (luke warm) & shared toilet. No frills, no luxuries (like hairdryer etc) and nothing seems to be well-thought out. Building work is going on all over. I think that it really should not be accepting guests at this present time. The rooms are clean and bright but there was excessive noise from the pub downstairs and the terribly busy ring-road/flyover kept us awake all night with traffic, sirens etc due to the fact that the Victorian sash windows were sadly lacking noise reduction. The 'continental breakfast' is basically a fridge on the landing with cereal, bread, butter and assorted open jars of discount jam. The tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms are sparse: kettle too big to fill from the tiny sink. I would ask why the beverages in the rooms are sachets and UHT milk when there is a fridge and sugar etc on the landing? The crockery and cutlery on the landing was gritty with residue from building work and we had to climb over paint tins, radios and reclining builders to make it up the 3 flights of stairs to get to our room. Tariff was per person, rather than per room. All in all, I have stayed in much better London hotels for less money. Whilst it is close-ish to the 02 arena I cannot recommend this hotel due to the lack of any refinement. Perhaps when the building work is done it will be fine but I really think that the owners should think seriously as to whether it is suitable for paying guests at this time (Feb 2012). It really isn't a comfortable stay.
