Learnt the long way. Unfortunately discounted for a reason. ☘️ was being smoked in the corridors and room was dirty. However, Bathroom ok and sheets clean. More of a victorian hostel than hotel vibe. Reception staff friendly enough. Didn't risk the continental breakfast

Well given the cheap price of just 66 pound my hopes weren't up anyway. However the room was literally tiny and the bathroom were a wet room, meaning if you had a shower you would have to wait ages till you could use the bathroom without getting wet. The room did have good wifi and have a TV. The location...

We stayed here for one night near Christmas as we were struggling to find somewhere to stay. On a positive note, it was close to the station and easy to find. For £60, we had a VERY basic room, there was a concealed step near the bed which was quite dangerous, a shelf falling off the wall and wires for...

As the title says, it is cheap clean and servicable. The rooms are basic but ok, breakfast is continental, but more than adequate. £7 to £12 taxi to Kings Cross though, and £15 to £25 to Covent Garden area, so factor this in when costing. Friendly staff.

Stayed here for one night on the 12th November, easy to find and close to the stations but that's about it on the positives. However on arrival our room wasn't ready, cot requested but no cot in room. We were told we'd have the larger double room because we had to have the cot in for our 3 month old...

The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, it was quiet, the staff were courteous, good wifi and the breakfast adequate. Its value for money in central London and I shall stay again. Public areas could do with attention, a new or even cleaned stair carpet. But I go to Swinton for a good nights sleep and thats what...

We were in a basement hotel overlooking a courtyard (quite pleasant). At bed time we realised the bed base in Room 1 was broken and reported this to the night manager who relocated us to Room 7 (where the base was heading in the same state direction but was slightly better). The problem is that double beds in both rooms...
