We wanted a cheap place to stay but not too far out of Central London. The room is basic and probably as small as it could be, but clean - which is something I value more than extra space. The only thing is that the shower is fixed in such a way that it soaks the floor, but it was...

I have been there just a few weeks ago. Great location, next to Kensington Olympia Galery and next to tube station (3-4 min walking). Also, a lot of shops and restaurants around. Very helpful reception staff, always willing to help (thank you Maria). Room was average: small bathroom with shower, hot water and good water pressure, small tv. Radiator wasn't...

The hotel check in was straight forward as we had already prepaid some months earlier. WiFi connection was ok but not great for...

Okay so I get that it's a budget hotel but I would still expect certain standards. Stayed here to visit London with my wife and young boy. Firstly We had to ask for another room because the room we were given originally reeked of smoke. The window was wide open in the room so the hotel obviously knew it stunk...

The room (for three) was fine although very small. Why I want to share my poor review is because the personnel was extremely unhelpful and at times rude. As we shared a room amongst friends, we asked for a single duvet as we only got a double duvet in the double bed we shared. We asked several times for this...
