Charlies Hotel
Ranked #420 of 579 London B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We have stayed in numerous hotels, B&Bs and hostels all over the world from 1* to 5* but this was poor. Only stayed for 1 night during olympics with a very late check in and were allocated a basement room. The room absolutely stank.... being on the ground floor with the windows left open all day (to remove the smell???) one can only assume that a cat or 2 have been coming in and spraying in the corner by the door. Either this or the toilet has been leaking into the carpet and never cleaned. The bathroom (which you could only fit in if your slender) was in serious need or restotation, with mold and tiling coming off. Couldn't wait to leave the room in the morning.

On the positive side, at the least the bed sheets were clean and the home cooked breakfast set us up for the day.

Room Tip: Avoid basement rooms if possible, especially #8, maybe others are better?

Mould in the shower. see through curtains a smell that could only be described as death. Greasy cold breakfast and not enough places for us to sit together. Awful

Room Tip: Pay a bit more and stay in a Travel lodge or pitch a tent!
