Golden Star Hotel
Ranked #471 of 566 London B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Good - 5 min walkable distance from the tube, affordable, easy procedures and easy access for everything till late night as well.The Asian caretaker guy had been very polite.

Bad - No balcony,TV, ironbox, hair dryer and breakfast as advertised. The Asian caretaker guy was very welcoming and polite but unfortunately he was not clean at all. He had come to show us the room in between his cleaning duties. It was evident that it was not the fault of the workers but of the owners who do not seem to be bothered of what was going on there. eg. A big LCD TV but no channels at all.

I believe the place belongs to an Indian. 60% of the 1.8 billion population of India is under poverty. That means no clothes, food etc. As an Indian myself, I feel ashamed to see that inspite of having been blessed to own such a beautiful spot in the heart of London, it is not being maintained in a proper way. Its a shame!

i will recommend this hotel only to Asians who are on a low budget and intend only to have a place to sleep at night. Europeans will definitely expect higher standards than this!!!

Very very basic. Very noisy. Paper thin walls. Location was good enough but doesn't make up the difference. Suppose to a certain extent you get what you pay for. If you want a proper nights sleep, this is not the place for you. Service and food is woeful too.

the room was dirty. the tv did not work and the bed was very uncomfortable. breakfast consisted of an overdone boiled egg and some cold toast delivered to the room on a tray. even for that price i would expect cleanliness.

Although situated in a good area 10 minutes from Victoria Station you are best off going down and walking around as plenty of hotels in area. Had know knowledge of my booking when we arrived. Did not try the breakfast owner/cook put us off, room was clean but bed was uncomfortable & had a small heater that was left on all night to heat room. Wireless is only available at the entrance to the Hotel/Hostel not in the rooms!!

The location of the hotel is great, close to the train, bus and tube stations. However, I had a disappointing time staying in the hotel caused by the low level of cleanliness, facilities (water heater did not work, tea maker was not available as promised) and management. Be prepared to have a very basic and not-so-clean room that suit only for rest at night.
