It is warm, clean, really friendly! Not that central, districkt is not that beautifull, but there are a lot of busses to the centre (including Victoria Station) and a straight bus to Elephant and Castle tube station from Gatwick airport. Reasonable price! Thanks a lot, your attention and humor were so needed in these rainy days in London.

I would say, I really love it, all people whose coming in here, all staff working here, even though being away from home I felt like home from home, if you understand what I mean. Place itself ticks all boxes as well, great kitchen, great showers and the pub downstairs. Spot on!

I stayed in the hour glass hotel with my partner and I loved every minute of it.
The rooms were clean, the beds were comfy and the breakfast was just what we needed to start our day of touring around London.
The best part of our stay was the bar staff. They were very helpful and polite. Lauren was the one who stood out to us the most, she remembers our names and always made is laugh when she was around. She is a real asset to the establishment.

The only downfall was the owner. He wasn't around much and when he was, he came across very arrogant. He undermined his staff in front of customers which I thought was very unprofessional.

Overall I had a fantastic time, it would be all the better if Lauren was the owner.
