We stayed here for three nights in August 2012 and can summarise our stay as follows:
Our Double Room was small but clean. The bathroom was the size of two telephone boxes but (unlike Dr Who's Tardis) was really small. The shower smelt musty and was mouldy and not a pleasant experience at all. The drinking water tap is separate from the main water system. All very dodgy!!
Our room overlooked Birkenhead Street which is close to Euston Road/Pentonville Road. The noise was terrible all night long with police cars, traffic and youths shouting outside. Not very nice at all.
In terms of catering, I am embarrassed to say that visitors to Britain must think we are all terrible cooks and that we hate our food. The toast was un-toasted, the 'juice' was actually like orange squash (i.e. weak), the bacon and sausages dried, the ketchup watered down and the tea/coffee showing no signs of taste of flavour. We saw most other guests turn their noses up in disgust at the breakfast and we ended up buying a decent breakfast elsewhere. This was rounded off with the very unfriendly attitude of the kitchen staff Yuk!!
And finally...The cost: We felt that we had been robbed for the price we paid and would only recommend this hotel to our worst enemies. Our advice: Avoid like the plague.
