“Excellent central London facility for Indians”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Stayed there in October 1st week 2013 in clean room with attached bath. Not extravagant facilities - however nice, compact one.
BF and Dinner are included in price - with both veg and non veg options.
Conveniently located near Warren street tube station.
Oxford street is at 10 minutes walk.
Dining is improved much. Service and Kitchen staff is good.

Room Tip: warm enclosure and secure facility.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I have stayed here many times. The price is very reasonable and the location, near the Warren St. Tube Station, is excellent. It is an institutional dormitory for Indian students, but also has rooms with private baths available. The place feels like student housing and is spotlessly clean, although some of the furnishings and carpet are a bit worn. My room had a large window at one end facing an interior courtyard that allowed for plenty of light. There was an electric kettle on the desk that was nice for coffee or tea anytime. Indian vegetarian Breakfast and dinner came with the room. This is a basic place to stay that's clean, safe and well located. The staff has never been particularly helpful, but always polite. This is not for someone who wants the pampering of a hotel. For me, it's a great place to base while in London - so I can go off and explore the city.

Did not stay there , but the food Indian served here is amazing !

The location is so excellent - I am sure anyone staying here has a value for money proposition.

I believe the Institution is serving an excellent cause by helping new comers and students and others through their continuing service. It is a historic place to - been in operation since quite a long time going by the photos on display.

However, the best part is to go here for an Indian meal - it costs very little and is very traditional indeed - yummy !

Good location being central but service pretty poor for the price . Photographs posted on line very different from actual small box like rooms . Stay only if you are tight on money !!
Tiny beds with too much noise from street .. Rude staff . Good at asking for payment but bad on providing small must have services ...
Was told free wifi on inquiring on phone but when arrived was asked to pay for Internet .

Stayed here quite by accident when a reservation made through a well-known booking agency wasn't. Rooms clean, not entirely new, far better than good enough. Shower had plenty of hot water. Didn't stay for breakfast or dinner (Indian meal).

Good place to stay esp keeping in mind location . Rooms are clean , basic but clean . Food served at the restaurant is simple , homely n healthy . The catering staff are very hospitable which adds to the flavour n not to forget it is v reasonable cant believe one can get authentic Indian home cooked food at down to earth rates!
