I am just back from 3 days spent in London at Cedar Guest House. I started to look for a budget hotel from 21st of October and even if I contacted more than 50 facilities, I did not mamage to find the suitable one. Then I received the answer from Cedar; rooms were available and I could book online. I tried to, but it seemed there was no availability. By mail, I received confirmnation the rooms were booked. I was very suspicious both because of the online missed booking and because of the negative reviews I read here and on venere.com.
Arrived at Cedar, there was the risk the rooms were in Cedar as well as in Ivy, Alexander, Annexe and Holly (all on the same street and owned by the same person) because I did not manage to obtain this info before. We checked in at Holly (payment has to be done at arrival) and then moved to Cedar where rooms were. Rooms were very very small and very poor at first sight. We were a little bit shocked at first but, as soon as the first night passed, we started to appreciate the place.
The room was old and with some dust on the floor but the rest was fine (clean linen, functional ensuite toilet, hot water functioning as well as the heat system and the TV and fridge). It is not true the fact I read here, that trains announcements and noise could be heard clearly. My room was on Hugh street and I can assure nothing was udible altought railway was near.
Another great aspect was the location; Terravision bus from Stansted leaves you 3 minutes walk from the hotel and the room is 5 minutes walk from Victoria station.
In conclusion, if need only a place where to sleep and have a shower, Cedar is the place for you.
