Maybe the bed is not very comfortable and tv quite diff to use, but breakfast is rich and unlimited so it's perfect to visit London all around for the whole day without needing extra food till dinner The man welcoming you is very helpful and kind and we've appreciated the available free baggage deposit and the 24 hours reception, in...

I can't say too much as the police are looking into this matter - but the proprietor was very dishonest regarding money and became instantly menacing when I disputed it. I felt threatened and suffered an injury - completely unprovoked. The establishment is seedy and I felt very unsafe. Avoid at all costs!

The man wake us up at around midnight knocking to our door and claiming that we were supposed smoking, he forced me to get out of my bed and make him understand we are not smokers and of course we were not smoking. Never heard before!

We booked 2 nights through booking.com several months in advance and then added another two nights (also far in advance) also through booking.com. Our communications with FCT prior to arrival were good. We arrived late in the evening, as communicated to the owner, and our first impression would have had us running to another establishment if we knew of any... More

Do not consider booking at FCT bed and breakfast in London. We booked 2 nights with them in June 2014 several months in advance thru booking.com. After booking they came back later asking for a 10 per cent advance which we did comply with. They never actually posted the 10 percent however. Suddenly 2 days before our arrival they e... More

It was nice staying with this price. Friendly workers, the hostel was really homely. Really good location. Breakfast was quite poor, but edible. It was nice, that they did our bed and left everytime a clean towel. When we checked-out, they let us to leave our luggage in the hostel, because we wanted to explore the city. Later me and... More

I stayed in FCT in January and the room was completely freezing. I asked the owner to turn on heating but he was not helpful at all and I had to sleep with my gloves on!!! We would have changed the accommodation but we were on a low-budget holiday and had no extra money for a replacement hotel. Maybe in... More

I stayed at FCT for four nights in December 2010. B&B is in a good location, just 20 minutes outside of city centre by tube (Zone 2). Staff were polite and friendly. Breakfast was standard. The area the B&B is located in is a bit grittier than other more glamourous parts of the city, but it was quiet (even for... More

We stayed in FCT Bed in July 2010. Before the trip I was in contact with the hotel by email and they answered always very quickly. It's very cheap hotel compared to it's cleanliness. The staff is great, very helpful and nice! Breakfast was good, bread, cereal and coffee/tea. Some fruits also. The location was great, easy to reach with... More
