Wasn't expecting much already, it's a room at Sussex gardens, close to Oxford street any other famous sites, but it was below expectations, traffic noises , bad breakfast , the worst was one of the staff was asking some personal questions, totally non professional act , but still if u r looking for a moderately cheap room for few nights...

Stayed here with my sister for 2 nights in November 2016. We needed a fairly central base and didn't want to pay a fortune so Ventures fitted the bill. I'd read some reviews before, mostly negative so I was expecting the worse. Staff were pleasant on arrival. Our room was very basic with a double bed and a small toilet/shower...

The room I booked was a twin + single with en suite bathroom when taking grandson sightseeing. On arrival at 1730 on 26 Nov 2016 I was told the room on the 5th floor was not en-suite but there was a toilet/Shower room just down the hall. Where else could I go at that time on a Saturday evening in...

I booked the hotel for one night for myself and a friend. I explained that my friend was disabled and asked for an accessible room. When we arrived we were told our room was on the second floor. I re-iterated my instructions. They then gave us a basement room - not easily accessible. We were told that they are busy,...

Our room 402 was cold and the Bed linen was minimal. We asked at reception for another blanket and were told that the room was warm enough and therefore we could not have anymore, and it was made plain that this was not a discussion. The radiator was never on. Tried this venue as was cheap for location, lesson learnt...

...staff were friendly and accommodating. As noted in other reviews, physical condition is poor, shared toilet and shower down the hall was unexpected. Breakfast was hot and filling. Convenient to Tube stations. Glad we were only there to sleep.

The room at the hotel was quite good as the bed was very comfortable and there was a tv, a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities and also all the rooms are en suite. The breakfast was good and you get a full English everyday apart from sunday when they just do a continental breakfast which is included in the price....

The ceiling in the bathroom looked like it was melting because of mold and paint falling off. The shower was like trying to get wet in light rain. Paperthin walls, radiator didn't work (it was freezing cold) and pretty dirty. Not worth it.

So I don't tend to write reviews, however this one deserves my time and effort as it's been given some very negative comments and none are close to the truth. Yes, it needs modernising as it's very basic and you can hear the traffic outside, and they could offer more at breakfast as I wasn't able to eat certain foods...
