A fairly average hotel in London, I would give 2.5 stars if I could. Used to see a band in Alexandra palace for a night, the room was spacious but old fashioned and not particularly clean. The shower room was small, and a bit of a sturggle for my 6 foot partner. However the shower was efficient, so no real... More

Booked this hotel as it was cheap, wasn't expecting much as have had a lot cheaper before, this however takes the biscuit, admittedly on booking my room I mistakenly thought that as it said "shower" I assumed it meant bathroom, nope,no loo, If I was young and able bodied to keep going up and down the stairs then maybe this...

This hotel is cheap so I didn't expect much more than a place to sleep at the end of the day/night. As my expectations were not high and taking into account the reviews I had read on tripadvisor the hotel was pretty much as I thought it would be. the place needs a serious tidy up. the carpets in our...

Alright, so for sixty five quid it was never going to be great. On the downside there is the following: 1. Bed springs sticking in your back 2. Filthy dirty 3. No hot water 4. Lights in room and corridors didn't work 5. Stinks On the good side: 1. Checked in at 3.15am and out at 5.45am. Only two and... More

So booked this hotel before I read all the bad reviews here. And what can I say? Let's start with some positivity: it wasn't AS bad as I thought after I read the reviews. Our room was clean, just like we booked we had our own toilet and shower and they were fine. If you have already booked don't worry,... More

After booking the hotel I read the reviews on here and I was worried to say the lease. I'd like to say the staff were polite and very helpful :) The room was large, we had an en-suite room. The bed was comfy. It wasn't perfect but it was clean and had what we needed. For the price we really... More

We have stayed here a couple of times now when visiting London. The hotel is about 10 to 15 minutes to the underground so doesn't take to long to reach the centre of London. We booked a double ensuite and have been happy with the quality clean rooms every visit and the breakfast is ok for the price of the... More

The ensuite bathroom again was very large but the shower held up by a shoelace? We also had staff knocking on the door at 1am asking us if we used... More

And it was exactly what I expected. The room was small but clean. There was a kettle, sink and tea making facilities. The only issue I did have with the room was that, whilst there was a centralised heating system there was no dial on the radiator so it was on full blast all night & couldn't be stopped -... More
