I’ll not be “ruskin” back again, the facilities are outdated, the rooms are bare and offer no comfort, the lift is for luggage only as it breaks down regularly so pray you’re not put on the third floor lol, breakfast is lacklustre for the amount you pay per person, very outdated for the modernity of London. However, the staff are helpful and there is wi-fi.

I am so disappointed with this B&B. On top of being super outdated, it doesn't even have what it is essential facilities for a modern city as London! I would not recommend staying here. The only good thing is the location and the staff is nice.

Tiny room. Bathroom and toilet down the hall and no working lift. Staff very helpful. Needs a refurb badly. Really good location at the side of the British Museum. Breakfast was fine. Possible to leave your bag with them to collect later in the day.

Staff has a confrontational attitude and is generally unhelpful (exception made for Joanna who is very friendly); facilities are old, appalling and poor; the level of cleanliness is very low and the comfort is fictional: for instance, the free wifi provided is only available in the lounge and not in the guests' rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms don't have A/C and hence are way too hot in Summer.

In the first place the location is just epic. In the centre of London, it is just amazing. Everything is just a walk away, literally everything London. With that in mind the price is actually good. The bathroom is a shared facility. Keep that in mind. You may be rushing to use it, or encounter a line. The beds are old, but comfortable enough. Bedding is clean and has no smell not stains. The service desk is friendly enough, but with the typical in-your-face brash British style. There is no 24 hour desk. They will, however, keep your luggage if you arrive early. Breakfast, which is extra, is a nice traditional English and serving staff is friendly and efficient. All in all not for a long-term or even whole vacation stay, but nice for one or two nights at most.
