“Very nice suprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We had booked into royal guest house 2 but couldn't find it. When we phoned to check location we were directed to this hotel. Having read the reviews we were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely room with a beautiful en-suite shower room. Perfect location. 5 min walk from 2 tube stations and the Apollo. Fab hotel. Would definitely recommend and use again

Room was clean, although quite small for a supposed family sized room - perhaps bunk beds would have been a better option rather than 2singles and a double. Breakfast was generous. Tube station 10mins walk on the Piccadilly line - convenient. Good local restaurants. Friendly, helpful staff. Overall good experience.

Room Tip: If there is an issue with stairs request a downstairs room

The B&B was as expected. The room and the bathroom were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was plenty. The staff was friendly and helpful. The position is a little bit far to the city centre, and the nearest underground station is at 10 minutes by foot.

booked into royal guest hotel only to be taken to sister hotel down the rd to be then told room not ready due blockage in toilet, told room would be ready by 4.30 did we want to wander round the shops - we were hot tired and thirsty and no we didn't. we also needed to get ready to go out. we were eventually given a replacement room guess where? hotel we had just come from down the road! the room we were given was nothing more than a box room with a double bed which was under the window and you couldn't get round ready so you needed to climb over to get out! and the room was right at the front looking out on the main rd - you guessed - sirens all night! oh and the pedestrian crossing! we had to have the window open as it was stifling hot which we had to prop open with a pair of shoes! breakfast - we were a bit late due to not having much sleep only to be rudely be told to hurry up and everyone to be out by 10.15 and didn't we know what time breakfast was served - sorry but we called it fawlty towers!

I booked this hotel before checking reviews for it as my boyfriend and I were just looking for a cheap and convenient place to sleep or 1 night. I was skeptical on arriving having read some of the reviews on the way to London. However I was pleasantly surprised on arrival! The hotel was clean and reception staff were nice. Room was on the small side but this did not bother us. Bathroom was also small but had a decent sized shower, something which is very important to my boyfriend and I! The location is a major advantage of this hotel. Less than 10 minutes from both Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush tube stations! Breakfast was also nice with very hardworking ladies in the kitchen! Overall rather impressed considering we only paid £65 for the night. Only a couple of minor things to note. The milk in our room for tea and coffee was off and don't ask the reception staff to call you a taxi. They won't. They'll call their uncle, who isn't a taxi driver and he'll charge you more than a black cab. But overall I would definately return!

Upon arrival we were escorted to a different hotel down the road but the gentleman carried my luggage. Excellent location. Rooms very small and we were on top floor so lots of stairs. We were happy with it. We just wanted somewhere clean to lay our heads.

I can't beleive this place survives. I've stayed in better places in third world countries! As another reviewer said i was also escorted down the road to another building (which i hadn't booked). Considering it was at 9.30pm at night i wasn't impressed.

It was a box room with the head of the bed directly under the window, minus the headboard! It was also very noisy due to the single glazing and busy, busy road. I hardly slept. One bonus was that the sheets appeared clean!

The bathroom was so small i couldn't actually dry myself without having the bathroom door open, and the skirting board was hanging off around the shower. Surprisingly the shower worked but made a noise like that of a fog horn!

Breakfast was next door in one of their 'other' hotels but by the time the morning came i couldn't wait to get out of the place. I couldn't even find anyone to complain to!

For £62 per night i would expect more. I would never stay here again.
