We booked this hotel for one night after going to see Arsenal play. We booked this hotel because it is within reasonable walking distance to the ground. The reception area was quite cosy looking but the higher you climb the stairs the worse it got.
When I entered our double bedroom [2nd floor No 409] I had to have a good laugh. I have seen better youth hostels.
The decoration is about 20 years old, with some of the wall paper hanging off the wall. There are mysterious stains everywhere. The carpet is filthy and the curtains have burn holes as well as being dark brown from smoke and dirt. No double glazing along a busy road.
The rooms furniture is even better. The wardrobe is a cut and shut job assembled and painted from another old wardrobe, the chairs legs were so bend that if you sat on it you'd slowly approach the ground backwards. There is a TV with an areal and here comes the biggest joke, they have a kettle and the usual instant coffe etc but when you want to boil some water you soon notice that the only free plug hole is underneath the little vanity table, so you have to put the kettle underneath on the floor to do this...

The bed linen were fresh but not the cover, which was crap because we were cold without it. The heating can't be regulated from your room, you come in and its cold but they leave it on through the night and we had to open the window in order not to suffocate.

Bathroom is small, functional but disgusting. Not because of dirt [it wasn't dirty] but covers are missing along the base of the shower, the filling along the basin is old, dirty and brittle.

During the night you can hear other peoples TVs blearing and you get the impression that some people actually live there through the DSS.

Noisy, dirty, ugly, too cold/warm, too expensive for what it is. Won't go there again even if the staff might be friendly. I mean come on, how much does it cost to replace a curtain?
No intention by the owners to change any of it shows how much they care about their guests...zilch.

Where do I start? The rooms were disgusting (stains everywhere, dirty sheets, broken taps), the music from the club downstairs was so loud we couldn't sleep until it closed and the bathrooms were filthy.

The only good point was that the staff were very nice.

Pay a few extra pounds and stay somewhere habitable.

I will not be staying here again.

Well were do i start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We booked this dump as it was not far away from alexandra palace were we watching the darts that night.
As we walked in we were hit by the heat of the place,we were all cold so we thought lovely...
Well we shouldnt of because it stayed on all night it was just unbearable,I didnt sleep inside the bed because it looked like it could have had a good wash,so i got bit to death,covered in bites...
There was water dripping down the walls in the bathroom,mould everywere in there..the tv dint work at all...
there was dirt all over the windows and floors,disgusting..it looked like they hadn,t cleaned it in months......We had a drink in the bar before we went out,we stook to the leather seats,there was dried drink all over the seats and tables...
Then to top it off there was a polska disco in the bar until 4am,when they shut that down,all hell broke loose there was all fighting outside the place...
it was just a knightmare of a place,didnt get any sleep at all because of the polish running up and down the corridors,slamming doors screaming out,we thought it was just like a polish refuge....
If you have booked this hotel,well I just have pity for you.....
what should have been a memorable experience ended up a miserable 1. all as i can say is i'm glad my darts players won there games.....
How can this hotel offer itself as a hotel,its just a hell hole...if inspectors went in they would shut it down!!!!!!!!!!!

There is nothing good that i could say about this hotel (if you could call it a hotel)
Here is a list of the many reasons why i was NOT happy...
Outside appearence is not what it looks like from the website and first impressions, was disapointed.
The rooms it's self was filthy, dirty walls, the windows were so smeared and dirty that you could hardly see out and not only that but the window wouldnt shut properly and the sound from the street was unbelievably loud...
The tv in the room was tiny and with two buttons missing, the bathroom was a state with limescale EVERYWHERE and the cold tap was hot...
Out of the four lights in the celing, only two were working, and those were right above the bed... and blinding!!
The raidiator was stuck on boiling and with not being able to open the window at night because of the sound, it was way too hot in the room.

Not only all this.... But when it came to trying to get to sleep at night, this was hardly possible because you could hear every movement, sound and conversation of everyone else in entire building... ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT!!!

I've attached some picture of what the inside of my room looked like, its hard to get the real 'picture' of what it was like overall but i hope this gives you an idea.

Do Not Go To This Hotel..... Save your money and time and go somewhere else!!!

I've never written a hotel review before but get the benefit of reading everyone elses, so I thought I'd give a little back. I think I owe it to everyone to warn them about this hotel. I have stayed in my fair share of budget accom but this is so awful it still sends shivers down my spine.

Checked in and no curtains! Went to reception and they hand me curtains and say they are not maintenance. I have no pole upon which to hang the curtains - response 'nothing to do with us'. Eventually get an upgrade to a double room which does have a blind but the there is no latch on the window so it physically cannot be closed.

Put it like this - I never used the toilet once. I slept with a towel on the pillow and a towel on my sheets. I boil washed myself when I got home. This is like SAS Are You Tough Enough but with diseases. You truely are better on the streets.

Giving this one star is really over hyping it.....

I stayed in this hotel on my 30th birthday I was going to the West End to watch a show.
We arrived at about half 3 and was given our key to room a 3rd floor room, we wasn't offered any assitance with our cases. We eventually climed the steep stairway and entered our twin room. The window was open, being held in place with a piece of wood balancing on the wooden frame and glass of the window, it had been raining and the window cill was soaked in rain water. I had to use one of there towels to soak up the water before it leaked all over one of the beds that was right under the window. There was a small portable tv in the room, but the ariel had one of its antenna's snapped off and was very sharp, and the ariel didn't pick up much signal, so there was any point of using the tv.
The carpet was so filthy we didn't dare to walk on it with our bare feet, we could feel the carpet was sticky under our shoes. We arrived back about 11pm after our show and all the bars smokers were out the front' stood underneath our window that we had to have open as the radiators were on full blast all night and in such a small room it was so unbareable, the noise from the smokers, music form the bar and the traffic noise was unbarable and we never got any sleep. In the morning we couldn't stand being in there any more we were out by 8am walking as fast as we could away from the flea pit. I can't believe that the staff and management would sleep in one of their rooms so why do they expect paying members of the public to do so???? I am just so glad that I never had any of my children with me. From the dirty filthy toilet, to the thick cobwebs and sticky carpets I warn you all to stay away, I would rather sleep on the streets with the homeless then stay in this hotel again....

Stayed October 2007
