This was a last minute booking for 1 night, just wanted a comfy bed in a clean room with en-suite and a simple breakfast, not too much to ask?? Well, where do I begin ..... the man on reception was far welcoming and tried to demand payment even though payment had already been made. The room was dirty and very tired. The quilt was stained but thankfully the sheets were clean. The en-suite consisted of a toilet that you couldn’t use and shut the door as it was so cramped. The sink was in the shower and very very compact !! The bed was extremely hard, lumpy and uncomfortable. Half the electric sockets were broken and didn’t work. The hair dryer didn’t work. Breakfast consisted of stale bread and croissants with used peanut butter and honey jars. Sadly this hotel should not be operational until it is cleaned and renovated which is quite sad as the location was great for easy access to the underground and some good local pubs nearby. Definitely give this accommodation a miss.

Dickens museum minutes away yet felt like it was a Victorian dive here. Location superb for central London and the outside of the house lovely. Inside it is old, shabby, not cared for, lacks investment, TV not on straight, cupboards don’t close, shower pod tiny and utilitarian. Breakfast very meagre. Better not to have and go to Costa opposite.

The toilet was a plastic box room with shower over the sink and no windows yellow coloured plastic that was once white. The room was grimy and dirty. The bedspread was stained and dirty. The dirt build up in the lamps was horrible. The window open onto a dirty court yard where a flat next door could look in your window. They smoked out there window which filled out room with stinking fag smell. It was not worth the money.

Me and my daughter stayed in this 'hotel' last night and it was the worst place we have ever stayed. So much so while we couldn't sleep because of the constant squeaking of our beds and the banging from the rest of the hotel, we attempted to get a room at different hotel and then we even tried to get a train home but it was too late. The shower did not work, there was no hot water and when we mentioned this we were told..'have you not seen this?' A laminated note with instructions to turn the hot and cold taps on and off to get a working shower...and advised 'it's an old building so the pressure doesn't work' (not previously seen or advised on the hotel information) Having stayed at several similar style hotels in London whose facilities were up to date and worked, this 'hotel' is overpriced and is not a hotel it is just about a hostel which should barely charge £40 a night..with working facilities. The hairdryer also did not work..the bathroom with cigarette burns and plastic with a very strong disinfectant smell..was not clean along with the room and the carpet. £120 for a twin room which was a single room with an extra bed shoved in..is unacceptable. Breakfast was a soup kitchen...piles of bread and and nothing served..instant sachets of coffee and staff doing the bare minimum. This hotel should not be on booking.com it is a con. The front door was also wide open past midnight...we felt unsafe. We wanted to complain and speak to a member of staff, however there was a note left in reception stating to leave your card there to check out, giving us no opportunity to raise our concerns and demand a refund. This place is clearly taking advantage of people.

Booked on booking.com without looking at trip advisor reviews. It was 15mins walk from where we wanted to be and cheapest hotel with en-suite I could find. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean, although very tired (think 1970s Youth Hostel) Basic breakfast (tea, toast, cereal, apples) included. Costa Coffee directly across street. Just what we wanted to rest our heads for 1 night. I would definitely go back so long as it stays this price.
