Stayed here on Saturday 6th November with a friend and had an awful experience. I had misgivings to begin with because of the bad reviews on here but they are totally justified. The room was tiny and dirty with paint peeling off the walls and sockets hanging off. Also we were on the 5th floor - with no lift! The... More

I pray that I never have to stay in a hotel like this again. Due an error made by Hotel Enrico we were shunted off to this hotel late at night. We were met by a very nasty and rude old man. Our room was on the top floor - it was so dirty we were afraid to take our... More

I stayed here with three female friends. Women should not stay in this neighborhood. London is fantastic and this area is not a good representation. The room was dirty and old. The shower was broken and flooded the tiny bathroom. We were absolutely petrified as there was screaming and shouting and doors slamming until 6.30 in the morning. The price... More

Surprise me when I got there and found out not a 3star hotel as they say in the internet...but something like a Guest House from 3rd world countries, it look likes that class of accomodation we see in the farwest movies...The outside appearance it is not that bad but the...

Firstly got there, and i didn't even think i was in the UK where i was basically the only english person around that region. Staff were very rude and towards the end of my stay i would just... More

I realize when booking a budget hotel not to expect too much. However, the room was simply a disaster. The original color of the carpet was not to be determined, reception was very unfriendly not to say rude. In one of the previous comments of management I read a refurbishment took place and was completed in February 2010... well I... More

The description and photographs of the three star Ventures Hotel, London, are misleading and inaccurate. Our triple room, number 510, on the top floor was accessible only via a very narrow, spiral-type, staircase without a handrail. Certainly not suitable for my wife who uses a walking stick. She had to literally crawl up the stairs on all fours and come... More

We arrived here on our first night in London, the location was not very nice (its nothing to do with racism, but when I go to London I prefer it if people speak english rather than Arabic). We had to pay 20 pounds more than we agreed on the phone, but it was nearly 11:30 and we really wanted to... More

The hotel is really very disappointing. I made a reservation online for a double room with en suite bathroom and when we arrived at the hotel the reception staff gave us the keys to one room in which a wall about 2 meters high was all that separated the bathroom to the rest of the room (wall did not reach...
