“POOR”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

THERE ARE TWO ROMAN ROAD ADDRESSES OWNED BY THIS HOTEL CHAIN - NUMBERS 113 AND 527
527 is situated in Roman Road Market and has not been registered with Trip Advisor by the owners and so there is not an opportunity to review separately
527 premises give the appearance of a converted pub
breakfast tables are situated by the reception desk and do not look inviting
double room immediately adjacent to reception desk and breakfast tables which have a large TV screen above them. TV being viewed by residents till late in the evening - TV and conversation noise very intrusive in double room which appears to have very thin walls
kitchen available for resident use but regularly in use by ?hotel staff with dirty pots etc in sink
double room is not ventilated - having no window or fan except in toilet - unacceptable

Room Tip: majority of rooms are possibly situated in the basement and access down here appears hazardous

The rooms were passable, the walls were scuffed, skirting boards were dirty, floor corners were dirty, the bed was clean, although the pillows left much to be desired, the paper thin walls left also much to be desired, the shower was communal between two floors, the floor itself was listing to one side. Pictures were very misleading, and how three stars are advertised I have no idea.

Two colleagues also stayed, one was in the front on the ground floor, nice sized room, one next door tiny room.

I would stay here again IF I had no other choice.

Room Tip: They don't have good rooms.

I found out at short notice that I had to work in London for a week. Hotel prices were through the roof, and this hotel seemed okay and the price was right. However, the pictures on the internet did not prove to be a true representation of the hotel at all.

The room was tiny. It looked dirty even though it had only just been cleaned. The bathroom was the size of a postage stamp! If they had showed me the room before I had made the debit card payment I would not have stayed here for a second longer than it took me to look at the room.

I went out about ten minutes after I arrived and id not return until 10pm, then I just wanted to get to sleep so that I could wake up and get out again. The staff were not overly helpful. It was noisy, It was just attrocious. There is nothing good I can say about this hotel. I would not reccomend it to anyone! The only thing that was good was the location, but that just made the whole experience even more disappointing. Being in such a great area in such a depressing hotel.

Room Tip: The best tip is to not book a room in this hotel.

We arrived in London and we didnt know where we will live, so we booked this hotel very fast. When we came to hotel staff man said us that we we must go to another City View hotel on 527 Roman Road. It wasnt very good. Room was very small and clean but without everyday cleaning. We have free wi-fi only 1 day, next time it will be broken. Really awful was at weekend. When on Roman Road street was opened market! It was very noisy and terrible. And it was a problem came to hotel at night because the door was closed and we must stayed on the street and waited when smbody woke up and opened it. We have a good friends company and if not they all would be terrible.

The room was dirty, full of ants and dangerous electricity. The shared bathrooms and toilets were filthy, disguisting with used towels by other guests and no cleaning or what so ever. Wifi wasn't working. And the staff didn't see any problem of this all. The location was good but that is the only positive thing about this hotel. We don't understand how someone can run a hotel like this!

Room Tip: I wouldn't get any room again
