Reviewed December 2, 2013

I have stayed at the hour glass while working in London and I have to say that it's like a home from home the staff are always friendly and helpful nothing is ever too much trouble , thanks Sebastian and company. The rooms themselves are clean and well furnished if you don't want to eat out you can get food in the bar or you have the use of the hotel kitchen. To conclude I highly recommend this hotel and I am fairly sure you will be hard pushed to find somewhere to stay that is as much value for money as the Hour Glass!!!

I have stayed here several times over the last couple of months when working in London. Its a fairly easy walk in (45 mins) to the city over Tower Bridge. The rooms are clean and well equipped. Not en-suite but the bathrooms are good and I've never had to wait for one. No noise to speak of from the bar downstairs or the other guests.

The "Hour Glass" is a great place to stay. The people who work there are so kind and actually they welcame us at 7 o'clock in the morning. I stayed only one day but it was enought time to get personal opinion. You know, London is a big city and you can easily get lost but they helped us how to get to the airport. The room we stayed was clean and big enought. We have own bathroom. There is a TV in the room and a comfortable bed. Also you have an internet connection in the room, which was very important for me because in that way I was cheking the some very imporant things. The hotel is so quiet and nice, they have a little bar restaurant where you can go for dinner or just to have a drink. Also the hotel has a good location. In my personal opinion it is a great place for couples. It is not expensive. Actually. you pay less and get more.There are so many buses which you can get and just go when ever you want. Thank you so much for making this day so good and for helping. You are so kind people that I
If I visit again London I will stay there, for sure.

Staff allowed us to store our luggage there before check in. No noise from having a pub underneath. Large breakfast and good value for the price. Area near bus route. Staff happy to help. Comfy bed. Very clean. Would return.

It is very difficult to find a budget place with some quality in London. This hotel ticks all the boxes, it is pretty central with easy access to the heart of London. The staff is very helpful, nice, professional and very attentive. The manager - Seb will go an extra mile to provide really good service. Would definitely come back.

Sebastian, the manager did our loundry after long travel across Europe without taking even a penny, that is what i am talking about! Loved It! Definatelly will ne back.
