We booked this stay through our US AAA Travel Agent. The booking details required our flight arrival time, so we expected that the room would be available when we arrived at the hotel. We arrived to see a customer being loaded into a real honest British Paddy Wagon! It was disconcerting, but we entered the premises to discover that the... More

On arriving at this hotel, we were amazed to be asked for some form of identity as our room was already paid for and we are British with a Kent address. We had not been informed that we needed identity on our confirmation. We had our freedom passes, but were so amazed that we forgot to ask what would have... More

Very good standard of room, nice facilities and friendly helpful staff. A decent breakfast would have earned the extra star, but other than that I can't complain. This was a business trip and found the room ideal for working as well as unwinding.

From the moment we called to book at this hotel we were extremely disappointed. The staff were extremely rude on the phone, and when arriving at the hotel the floors on the room were disgusting and dirty. We weren't told any information about checking out. Really disappointing visit.

A good place to stay if you have to work in this region. I had to work at Olympia and this was ideally located. Clean, quiet, close to underground, coffee and tea always with you, Sainsbury a block away. I like it.

This rooming house called a poor excuse for a hotel. Bed was awful. You pay for parking on the street. Guaranteed, we will not be returning to this address. It is quite possible this address would not pass a fire code. The beds sagged and need replacing.

I stayed only one night and had a clean, comfortable room and a nice bathroom. There were plenty of towels, a hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The lift was modern and reliable. I did not have breakfast but it is available. The staff were very helpful and pleasant.. Good value for money.

With 5 in tow, we had the larger family room on the 3rd floor which cost £80. Rooms are small, but it is London. However beds were comfy, and shower had good pressure. Bathroom was a good size. Place was clean and of a better class of budget accomodation in London. Situated in zone 2, the place is a 5-10min... More

Good position, (close to the tube and near the city center ) and value for money. Room clean and silent and very nice staff . Nevertheless room is very small (we were 4 people) and no breakfast was possible inside. The nearest bar is 5 minutes walk distance.
