Well, where do I start?
Firstly, I booked to stay over night in London for my partners birthday, somewhere in Victoria, local to the tube station, as well as the Apollo Theatre. The Belgravia Hotel came up as the cheapest option, unfortunate to me, there was no photos of the hotel, except the image of the outside view. Such a low price, I thought "Brilliant!". Later to my surprise I had no idea it was a Hostel, may I add I have no problem with it being a Hostel, but the fact of false advertisment.
On arrival at the Belgravia 'Hotel' we was greated disgustingly, no manners at all. I felt as though I was walking through a playground whilst walking down the corridor, pram, bed quilts, the whole lot just left in the middle of the corridor. After being given our key, we was not told where I room was, walking up the stairs, well there is no way to describe it other that FILTHY. The floor was not even, cracks on every wall and stairs, the place could do with a lick of paint too. Once we final reached our room, we was greeted with a nasty smell of drains from our bathroom. Damp over the walls, cellotape hanging from the curtains poles, a TV which did not work, cracks up every wall and a bathroom which, realisticly could not even fit 1 person in. Sink and shower taps hanging off and a shower head which did not fit or stay up. There was a little bit of space to walk from the bathroom to the bed, where myself and my partner was basically climbing over each other. The bed cover was covered in black lines (evadentally had not been washed properly).
Lastly, I could not help but laugh, on our way out of the hotel I picked up a leaflet of the Belgravia Hotel, inwhich a photo of what our room should have looked like... Shocked. They look nothing a like at all, looked like a completely different hotel.
The hotel may be cheap, but there is no way on earth I would EVER pay that less again and have to stay in somewhere as atrocious as that. Be away!
