Stayed yesterday with the good lady as we needed to be at the US embassy today. Booking.com was £65 with full English breakfast. Got a double room, clean sheets, comfortable bed, TV, great shower, microwave, Kettle, tea/coffee. Exactly what was needed. You would pay a tenner each for the breakfast alone and the staff, particularly those ladies in the Breakfast... More

It was a terrible experience, even so hotel is cheap. London is totally booked out, apparently due to the fashion week. The only place I found was this one after checking many other hotels before. The rooms are extremely, basic, shabby and not really clean. When you switch on the shower, it sounds like a boat's horn. Apparently they are... More

Firstly, don't be put off by the reviews shown on the internet about this particular hotel. Upon using booking.com for cheap flights and accommodation included I booked this hotel to stay in along with my boyfriend, without reading anything about the hotel before I booked it. Afterwards I decided to read some reviews and I wish I hadn't, a lot... More

I've read a couple of reviews on here that says this Hotel was dirty and uncomfortable, well I disagree. If you are looking for a luxury ensuite, chocolates on your pillow and a dozen different teas to choose from in your room, then this is not for you. If you are looking for a budget Hotel within walking distance of... More

We were after somewhere low budget and central and this hotel ticked both boxes so we were (wrongly it turned out) optimistic. On arrival we were given a key to a room which had not been cleaned, there were empty bottles and rubbish everywhere. After telling them about this we were given an alternative room which was better, only because... More

Oh geez, where do I start. Arrived London a day early, no availability at our originally booked hotel so found this, close to Paddington. It was so bad I burned 32K points at the newly renovated Best Western down the street for a 7x8 room. No fan, no AC, no protection on open windows, nasty carpets, old, worn out hotel.... More

Booked as birthday treat for daughter. It inspired thoughts of the film 'Taken' as we were genuinely scared. We locked our room door and lay awake most of the night in anticipation of daybreak! The reception was full of men all looking a tad serious, they remained there everytime we returned throughout the day... It was really disconcerting. Great for... More

Well what can I say, my self and my husband arrived at The Ventures Hotel' full of anticipation and excitement. (We had not read the reviews before hand however we booked through booking.com and we have never had a bad hotel through them before) We work hard (as do most) so we were looking forward to a weekend in London...
