Location brilliant. Not too far from two decent tube stations. A reasonably priced car park within walking distance provided you do not have any heavy luggage, although this could be dropped at your room... I am afraid it stops there. We (me and my partner) did arrive slightly before the standard 2pm check in time. Initially was told room wasn't ready but would look after luggage so car could be parked. Then was told room was ready. Then was told it wasn't, and finally informed room 3 would do. All this going on whilst stood on the landing. After being told the room was ready, on first impression it was basic but adequate. Due to having things to do almost immediately, we didn't inspect too much of the room. On coming back, we soon noticed the cleanliness wasn't great. Now normally I read reviews and wonder why some can be bothered. Especially to write the finer details, but I do feel, this time, compelled to do this. I pulled back the duvet to find the sheets covered with hairs, (not all necessarilly head hairs either). There was blood on the curtain and the noise on an evening and a morning isn't ideal. For the room we stayed in, it is stud walls so you can pretty much hear everything going on next door. I do mean everything.
I understand you get what you pay for, and understand that a guest house differs from hotel standards, but to me, this was below par. As I paid £129 for 2 nights. The deal was purchased on Living Social and stated a bottle of champagne and chocolate would be given on arrival. This was actually a choice of red or white wine and a bar of chocolate. I decided not to mention this to the staff as no one ever seemed to be about to speak with. I chose not to eat here as I felt if the food were as shoddy the room, I wouldn't take the risk. So no food review.
In conslusion, I don't think its the most ideal guest house if your a couple, but might suit a few lads on a night out in the countries capital.
