“Bed Bugs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2008

We checked into room 208, which like the rest of the hotel, needs an immediate renovation. My wife woke up at 3am with multiple bites on her arm and face. Checking the bed we discovered bed bugs on the sheets. The hotel replaced our room, but no apologies were made. My wife went with a swollen face to an interview the morning after. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone- for an additional 30-40 pounds you can book a 4 star hotel in a better location.

Very disappointed, Don't go if you can afford more. There were no bedside tables, no dressing table, no remote control for the TV. One toilet paper roll, No marble around the bathroom sink had to put my toiletries on the toilet. Curtains in the room were filthy, and the noise from the traffic kept me awake all night.
Breakfast awful, dining room not like in the photos at all.
I shall definitely Not go there again, and I advise you to do the same!

Not a good night sleep with paper-thick wall!! You can count how many couples are doing their night-job at the same time. If you finally got into sleep, the door-banging upstairs must scared you up from dreams.....

Worse, they cheated by talking differently of their refund procedure. Somebody turns up claiming to be a Manager said you've informed by 24hrs to get refund; while other staff just casually said, "You can find the manager in morning and get your money."

So, do pay few pounds more and go to Solomon/Regal, NOT HERE!!

This is quite simply the worst excuse for a hotel I've ever had the pleasure of staying in.

The bedroom was extremely dirty, both beds were campbeds, and several floorboards were loose and in some cases missing. There was exposed electrical wires dangling from walls and the bathroom lighting was not working.

Staff were unfriendly and unhelpful and seemed to have an unnealthly obsession about the whereabouts of our belongings. I didn't feel safe here.

On the plus side, its cheap and its located near bus and tube.

I stayed at this hotel for one night only at that was enough! I was looking for a room for a few nites until i moved into my new house. This place was convenient and available so i took it. BIG mistake! The single room i had was tiny and absolutely stank of stale smoke! The flurosecent green light from the sign outside did not provide any further ambience! No help was given when asked with my luggage in fact i was told to do it myself as it was too big! Once in the room that stank so bad all my clothes now smell the tv failed to work. When i went to reception i was told that they couldn't help me until management arrived the next morning. When i did complain the next day i was told that i had been offered another room with a tv that worked but declined as it was on the second level due to my big luggage. When i responded that all rooms should have working tv's regardless of floor level i was met with silence. DON't stay at this hotel.. how it can be classified a hotel i am yet to understand! If you are looking for somewhere to stay try the Martel guest house where i went for the next 2 nite's. Clean, convenient and pleasant people to deal with.

I went with a group and on the first night of our stay (Fri. night) one room was burglarized. There was no break in, but magically the people in the room lost their money, credit cards and digital cameras. The front desk man was threatning and volatile over the situation and it was very suspicious. The hotel is running on it's last leg and there is no security. Many rooms are on the first floor and there is access from a back door. Please do not stay here....

  • Liked — really nothing
  • Disliked — There was no security and very very run down

Beware - your possessions will not be safe at this hotel. I left a suitcase at checkout and was later told I could have the suitcase but not the contents. A very hostile woman claiming to be the manager first said they had thrown the suitcase out because they didn't know whose it was (even though it had my name, address and phone on it). She then claimed she hadn't opened the suitcase, but a few minutes later she admitted she had opened it. Then she tells me they threw the contents out but I can have the suitcase! Nothing fishy there, huh?
