My family of 8 visited London for a week and needed to travel on a budget so we booked this place mainly for the price.
Reception was helpful. They took care of our luggage when it arrived late from the airport. The room cards would reset every night, but they tried their best not to inconvenience us. As we came in from a long day of sightseeing, they would quickly reactivate our cards.
The rooms were basics. Carpet floors looked clean and vacuumed. Our room had 4 individual beds with heavy white comforters. I can imagine the comforters are great for the cold weather but we were visiting during a heat wave and ended up sleeping with just the sheets. The rooms got a little stuffy in the afternoon. There were no AC units but they did provide us with a room fan. Towels were replaced every day and folded into a design and placed on each bed. A nice touch.
The hotel was about a 45 minutes commute to downtown London using public transportation. We would take the 432 bus line to the Brixton tube station every morning. We didn't mind the commute. Area is very sub urban, with all types of people, families, young, and old. We felt very safe. There was a Sainsbury down the street. If you walk down to Westow Hill there are plenty of restaurants and stores if you need anything.
The best and worst was the breakfast. We were excited about the breakfast the first few mornings but it was the same thing everyday. After a couple mornings we got tired of it. Breakfast is served at a banquet hall two flights of stairs down from the lobby. Breakfast consisted of toast with jam, cereal, your choice from the hot beverage machine and orange juice. If you wanted an English breakfast, you had to pay extra.
Overall, we got what we paid for. A no frills hotel, which we used just to sleep and get ready. I recommend it if you are looking for a place to just sleep and do not mind the 45 minute commute.
