Due to a cancelled journey, we had to book a hotel in this part of London at short notice, most hotels were booked up so we were glad to get a room here.
Ok, firstly I'll accept that it is the middle of London, so prices are going to be high and space is going to be at a premium. However, it still seems ridiculous having to pay such a high price for one night in a hotel of this standard, with such small rooms.
The hotel is really cramped, with tiny staircases and rooms which are all laid out like a maze, if there was a fire in a building like this it would be a nightmare, but being such an old building there is not much can be done about it. We were on the top floor and to get to our floor we had to pass through corridors that stank of cigarette smoke.
The room itself was small but reasonably comfortable and the bathroom was actually recently refurbished which was good.
On check-in we informed the 2 members of staff at the desk that we would be leaving early in the morning around 7am, as we had paid for bed & breakfast we asked if something could be arranged for us to have a quick continental breakfast or cereal before we left. They said it would be no problem. When we were about to leave at 7, I went to the breakfast room to grab something to eat, everything was locked away and there was nothing to eat, I went to reception and one of the guys i'd spoke to was sitting sleeping in his chair at reception; as the taxi was waiting outside I didnt even bother waking him, we just left.
Overall, I certainly wouldn't choose to go back to this hotel if I could avoid it.
