Just came back from a 5 night stay at tune hotels, in Westminster. These are my thoughts:
The hotel is located literally across the road from Lambeth North Tube station, which is on the Bakerloo line. This is the main reason why I choose this hotel, apart from the low price. Lambeth North is only a couple of stops away from Waterloo, Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus. This means you 8 minutes away from Central London.
Be warned, THE ROOMS ARE REALLY REALLY SMALL. So if you’re going to be 2 in the room, please ensure that you feel TOTALLY comfortable with the other person, the bathroom door is white transparent, and the double bed is a small double bed so you will be quiet close to each other. But it’s ok if your fine with living in a room which is 9sq meters. However, on the positive side, the room was immaculate clean and brand new.
The bed was really comfy, and the hotel is quiet. You will hear no noises in the corridor that will wake you up.
Reception was great, there is one particular receptionist called Elly if I remember well, she was really sweet and helpful. Also they cleaned our room for free mid way of our stay, which was a nice touch.
There is no breakfast available, except for vending machine with Snacks. BUT! there is a small grocer right across the road (cost cutter) and SPAR a little bit further down. Also, there is Costa Coffee right next door for some fresh coffee.
Since we were not in the centre of London there was no night life at all (as expected), there isnt anything to do in the neighbourhood except for an Italian restaurant called Cotto which is OK. But this isn’t really an issue with tube across the road.
Just beware of the extra costs such as early check in which was 15 pounds (not too bad). 10 pounds for internet for the whole stay and 2 pounds to use the safe.
We paid 35 pounds a night, which is a great price for central London. I personally think it’s REALLY WORTH IT, if your ok with living in a really confined room then GO FOR IT!
