“It's fine!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Yes it's basic but what do you expect for the price? The room we stayed in had two double beds and a small bathroom. The room was clean and tidy, it had tea, coffee and kettle, a tv. Needed a iron and got one from reception. I will say the breakfast is nothing to write home about but who really cares!? It's fine for one night and I would happily stay there again.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

We had to take our cases up 3 flights of narrow stairs, to the roof top attic room, therefore we were in a slanted room, was so small, the bathroom so narrow and must of been a cupboard! Our room still had a toilet roll holder on the wall, so maybe it used to be a bathroom,
The hallway absolutely stunk, our room stunk it was rank!! Stunk of damp and was really damp, you could feel it on your skin and bedding and just disgusting!! This place is a total crap hole. Double room NOT !!!!
Camp beds, TV was perched on the wardrobe and you couldn't see it properly, dining staff miserable and breakfast unedible, nobody would believe the smell or conditions, you have to see and smell it to believe it. What a dive !!!!

Booked four nights at this hotel. I visit the U.K every year and it is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Arrived on Monday 9 Sep, and the middle-aged gentleman at the reception was so unwelcoming as I walked up to him he wore a stern look & his exact words were 'What can I do for you?' Got into the room after a 7 hours flight and there was hair on the bed. The matrass was worn out and definitely needed changing. You could constantly hear the doors slam from other rooms. I will never go back to this hotel & wont recommend it to anyone. To borrow an English expression, 'it was the pits'......couldn't wait to get out.

Am I just lucky with this hotel or do people expect too much! This is my 4th stay in 2 years and I have not had any cause for complaint on any occasion. The rooms were a decent size and clean, the breakfast adequate and the staff helpful. Yes, it is not a 4 star hotel but it is very good value and my latest stay was in the best room so far - room 60.

I would not hesitate to book it again for value and location.

Specifically requested 3 single beds for myself and 2 teenage children. Ended up with double &1 single. Not a very comfortable night. Room airless in the middle of a heatwave , loud youngsters till well past 1am. Apart from that ,good price compared to the rest of London at this time of year, clean with comfortable beds. One of those places that could be excellent but falls short because it doesn't seem to try very hard.

I recently stayed at the King Solomon hotel with my girlfriend and her son, we had what was stated as a family room (Room 99), however the room was barely big enough for one person. There was no curtain covering the velux window, one of the beds was right underneath this window, this resulted in an early morning wake-up call as the the room was light-up from about 5 a.m in the morning. I asked at reception if something could be done about this, at which point the big scary owner pipped up and and had a go at me for complaining. The bathroom door did not close properly, the room was damp, there was no hot water from the tap in the bathroom, there was no fridge in the room, the net curtain was stapled and not stitched, there is a sign on the back of the door in all rooms stating that it is advisable to use the room safes provided for valuable items, however there was no safe in the room, there is also supposed to be a hair-drier provided but we did NOT have one of these either. The water in the shower did not drain away very well, this resulted in the water overflowing out of the shower base and onto the floor. This hotel is zero star rated but is confusingly more expensive than star rated hotels in the surrounding area. In the morning the big scary owner stands in the restaurant area and just menacingly looks at the guests in a "KIng of his castle" sort of way. The only reason we ended up staying here is because our original booking at a different hotel was double-booked, we only found out at about 8.00 p.m when we arrived at our original hotel and we were very tired and just wanted somewhere to stay, the King Solomon was booked on our behalf and the difference was paid for by the original hotelier, personally i would not have paid the price this hotel was charging. This hotel is in the heart of the Jewish community and therefore really caters for the Jewish, breakfast is supplied however this consists of salad, i.e. the 3 mornings we were there the same items were served for breakfast, tomatoes, tuna/mayo, cucumber, egg/mayo, boiled egg. There are over 100 rooms in this hotel and the building isn't really that big for that amount of rooms, hence why the rooms are so small, As highlighted in the title of this review "Don't Go There.......
