“Friendly staff, tiny room, crap bed and bathroom”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Myself and 2 mates stayed for 3 nights over the weekend 6th-9th of July in a tripple room, well the room was on the top floor, the stairs aint for the faint hearted either !, it was a doubble room, with a tiny single bed pushed into the cornor of the room. The single bed was very uncomfortable and if you turned over, you would fall out of it ! The double bed was big and with the single bed, there was very little space in the room. The ensuite was tiny and not adequate for the size of the room, the soap provided left a sheen on ur hands and was manky to be honest. the towels were changed only one day out of 3 and the beds were made the same amount, and sheets not changed.
The guy on reception when we checked in was friendly and accomadating, the breakfast was over at 9.30am and was minimal, 2 slices of toast, ceral and coffee/tea. The dining room was tiny and you were pretty much on top of each other while trying to eat.
There was scaffolding work going on when we were there, didnt hear anything because we were in the back of the guest house, thank god we wernt in the font of the house. Also, you couldnt call this a hotel, its a b&b at best, cheep and you get what you pay for.
On our last night, as the sugar, coffee was not repleneshed in the room, we asked for some sugat and coffe, the miserable guy on reception, on the Sunday, gave us out a saucer with a mean amount of sugar and coffee sachets !
Would not recomment this or stay here again.
The location was fine, 5 mins walk frm the tube, shops and fast food outlets near by. About 15 mins on the tube into Piccadilly Circus.
Love london and it was World Pride weekend so had a great weekend, but the 'hotel' was crap lol, stay clear !

Run by a rude family who's only interest seems to be in getting your money and getting you out. I was there for 5 days, at 10:55 am they came knocking on my door telling me it's time to check out. When I asked for 15 minutes to finish packing, they started rapping again ten minutes later.

There are much better value options, even in London.

this is the kind of hotel that you get for what you pay.
Don't expect great decoration or great room or bathrooms.
Good for one night stand

Room Tip: tka one in the back of the building the front has a lot of traffic and noise can be an issue

Terrible, would not recommend this hotel whatsoever. We were put in a very bottom floor below ground level, it was dark, and totally unwelcoming. Our wardrobe in the room had a handle missing, displaying two very sharp long screws. The walls were disgusting and the paper was falling off. There was a wonky rusty old fridge which was not clean enough to store anything in. The whole place was very unwelcoming, it was that bad that we couldn't stay. We spent an hour in there before having to book a room at a different hotel because of how unwelcoming and filthy it was. Absolutely terrible.

myself and my girlfriend stayed here second may for a night,after a rather hastily planned trip to the capital to watch my beloved chelsea fc.the hotel is in walking distance of the ground wich is all we wanted it for.the room was basic but clean all we used it for was to change shower and sleep.we had to much fun planned to spend all our time finding fault with the place.what do you expect for sixty pound a nite in a two star establishment.the staff were polite and the place was clean.thats all that mattered to us.if you want luxury go somewhere on park lane.if you want a cheap place to stay then id recommend this plaae.i would have no issue returning here on our next trip down!

Only the location makes this hotel anything like value for money. It is not that cheap but it is quite central and a short walk from Earl's Court. The rooms and breakfast are minimalist and we got woken first by the TV coming on at 0600 and then by the pounding of footsteps overhead. Couldn't get away fast enough.

Terrible! do yourself a favour and stay elswhere! the breakfast is a joke 2 wafer thin slices of toast and coffee if you can squeeze one out of the pot that the staff push you out of the way to get to! Absolute dump . cold water and blocked toilets and 2 single beds pushed together to make a double!
