Saint Simeon
Ranked #727 of 1,077 Hotels in London
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We talk about London where all rooms are small and pricey. Considering this, Saint Simeon hotel is a perfect budget option, clean, with very helpful staff, next to Picaddily, District and Central line, nice breakfrast for english standards with plenty of fruit.
The only inconvinience is the room size, for those who can afford a bigger one, and the distance for those who want to go to East London for business or pleasure.

There is no doubt this is the best area of London that I have stayed in for such a good price. It is a bit of a mish mash inside with the interior and the room I stayed in had a shower but with no where to hang up the shower head. It seems the house has been converted with as minimal as possible, alot of blocked off doors etc. The breakfast is good and plentiful. You have to say no thanks. Its not top quality food but still good. I found my room clean. I have never stayed in a hostel but it has that feel. The staff were very friendly. I needed to go to London on a budget and this allowed for this.

This is a very friendly hotel with a great location, 3 minutes walk from Goucester Road (Piccadilly Line tube station - directly Heathrow airport line). The managers are a bulgarian friendly family.

Please don't look for luxurious or spacious rooms, but they have TV... Great for budget vacations, when you are looking for a space to rest yourself after a day long walking in London.

Breakfast is OK. English breakfast, assorted fruit, toasts, cakes, coffee, tea, ...

Please, bring soap, shower gel or shampoo, or you can buy it at reception.

The hostel is very close to the underground, located in a nice and quiet neighborhood with many shops, bars etc. Clean with very friendly staff. It serves terrific breakfast! Variety of fruits, milk, coffee, tea. You can choose the type of your breakfast; either intercontinental or English. The room was rather small but it was ok for us. Re quality sleep...Some of our pillows were so much used that had knobs...Mine was new, I guess! To sum up, it worths its money.
