Central Park Hotel@Finsbury Park
Ranked #984 of 1,081 Hotels in London
Reviewed November 10, 2009

The hotel was nice enough for the money we paid. The bathroom was slighty gross but even a slight hygiene freak like me had no problems there. The breakfast wasn't anything special, just cornflakes, muesli and toast with cheese/marmalade but filled you nonetheless. The public transportation connections were good especially the Piccadilly and Victoria lines nearby. Would go there again.

Room was very basic but clean.The staff were very helpful & pleasant. Breakfast is best advised away from the hotel, as the self service options seemed to be forever running out. That apart the hotel is a good cheap option if you basically want a room to sleep in.

Stayed there for 4 nights. Rooms are clean, towels changed daily. Breakfast OK (toast, butter, cheese, various jams, tea/coffee) except the "orange" juice - I think it's something which remained from the Bhopal Disaster... some Union Carbide well preservered hidden orange poisonous dust ...diluted with water and served now as a juice...
Reception ladies very gentle, neighborhood OK (Finsbury Park it's a wonder!) except maybe some Saturday Night local cowboys which are staying around the local pubs. 5 minutes to the tube, a couple of Liedl/Tesco at less than 200m distance...everything a tourist visiting London and only sleeping @ the hotel wants...
Definitely recommended.

When we arrived we were rudely told that the lift was broken, so we had to drag our luggage up 4 sets of stairs. We were given a cramped room which stunk of cigarette smoke and damp. There was giant black damp stains on the walls and ceiling and splatters of tea along the walls. The bathroom also had damp. There was no lock on the door, and no holder for the shower to go into. We complained to the receptionist, who rolled her eyes and pretty much looked at us in disgust, plain rude really. We were given a bigger room with more space, which was a lot better. Although this time the bathroom was the size of a small cupboard, although it had a shower (of which water only came out about a third of the holes) was rarely warm and leaked all over the floor. By the time you finished water would flood the bathroom, and run undertheath the door into the room.
The drawers in the room fell apart when we tried to put our stuff in them, but at least the TV worked. You were also only given 1 paper thin pillow each, which was quite uncomfortable.
The continental breakfast was poor. We never went back after the first morning. All that was on offer was cardboard bread, weak diluting orange, cornflakes and jam. Go to one of the all day bakeries down the street instead (:
The hotel was in a good location, in zone 2 of the underground, the nearest tube station (finsbury park) being a five minute walk away. You could also jump on and off the 29 bus right outside of the hotel, which took about 20 minutes to Leicester Square.
I wouldn't reccomend walking alone late at night in this area though, it seems quite dodgy at times. The road outside the hotel was quite quiet, it is blocked off so not much traffic goes by. Overall, i suppose you get what you pay for, but my view could have been a lot more pleasant if it wasn't for the extremely rude receptionist and the terrible bathroom.

Where to even begin...ripped curtains held together by staples. The curtains covered a giant black mould stain on the wall. The laminate flooring had incomplete gaps. The floor wasn't swept at any point in our 5 days there. Overt and plentiful water damage to the ceiling. The tea/coffee cups provided were filthy. The bathroom was disgusting with rust spots all over anything metal. The shower stall had black mould and rust all over it. There was mystery hair all over the floor and wall behind the door of the bathroom (where clearly they never clean). The staff working the front desk often told me to come back when another (apparently more helpful) staff member was there. Upon request of an extra pillow, I was given a clearly dirty one. The "breakfast" dishes were often dirty...i had to pick and choose which plate and cup I would end up using because so many weren't clean. The shower leaked and flooded the bathroom floor. When I brought this to the attention of the front desk, they said that someone would be around the following day to have a look at it. It was a problem for our entire stay.

My wife coughed the entire time that we were in our room, so as you can imagine we spent as little time as possible there. I'm assuming it was the mould that she was reacting to.

If you are looking for a cheap place to sleep in London then this place is great providing you do not expect anything special.
The staff are helpful and friendly and will take the time of day to speak to you.
We booked this place 2 months in advance so we could have somewhere to stay after watching the England V Andorra match at Wembley so as to eliminate the need to try to travel back the same night. Unfortunatly the tube workers were on strike when we went so we had to take the car. This hotel is fine for that as they do have secure free carparking at the back of the hotel whis is a big plus point for London.
The room was of a good size and so was the bathroom.
The early flatpack furniture was however well past its sell by date.
There has been subsidence in the area as the floor is not very level. The whole place could do with being painted as there are large water stains on the celing and walls.
The basic breakfast was perfectly ok as were the tea and coffee in the rooms.
We did have a good stay there though and we would go back.

I stayed here briefly on a stopover from LHR... and since it was free, thanks to a special deal on BA, I was somewhat skeptical. But, it was totally fine, and conveniently located.

I had a single, and it was a true single: single bed, small room, small bath. But everything was quite fine. I was most surprised that, although it was a basic, no-frills room, it had a mini-fridge.

It is very close to the Tube. There are lots of shops and restaurants, including places that are open late, which was convenient as a traveler arriving late.

A breakfast voucher was included (coffee, juice, cereal, pastries; additional options for a surcharge), and while it wasn't noteworthy, it was perfectly fine, but I wouldn't have paid for breakfast, as there are plenty of options nearby that would certainly be better.
