Was not what we expected. Couldn't hardly close the bathroom door because the space inside was so small that there was no room for you legs when you were sitting down. Light was not working in the bathroom. Looked really unclean. There was a toilet standing in the hallway.

The "hotel" was an apartment building with 3 floors, and a shared bathroom for all floors. The bathroom was very unclean, and the toilet was blocked for our entire stay. The shower was also unclean and you had to tell the man in charge in advance if you wanted to take a shower so the water could be heated. There was no reception, they couldnt find my booking, there was no proper payment system, they only accepted cash to pay for the hotel stay. The room wasn't ready on time even though we came 2 hours after check-in began. They had lost the key to our room so we needed to wait even longer until we could go there. The only thing positive about this hotel was the location.

After staying in the hotel for two nights and get over the fact there is an unplumbed toilet as you walk through the entrance, no reception desk, stained floors and things you wouldn't find in the best western next door. You find a few other things wrong with it.. The rooms where cold. The bathrooms had a very odd smell.. The showers leaked all over the floor in the crawl space of a bathroom (which didn't have a sink because the sink was in the main room). There was no toilet roll or towels.. (We booked two rooms one had towels, one didn't, one had toilet roll and the other didn't). The lights where dodgey and flickered and had burnt out bulbs. And breakfast (as promised was brought to your room for you (which we passed upon for this reason)
BUT.... The guys where friendly (at times apart from talking in Their language to each other when checking us in) and the bed was really Soft and comfy so I had a good nights sleep, even if the bed was being held up by a paint can.
And it's close to Victoria station and Buckingham palace and if you're a walker you can walk as far as the London eye within a good time scale.

Overall it's cheap.. It's basic so if your in London for a night on a budget it's fine. I'm sure this is cheaper/better hotels.

We stayed two days in March with a couple of friends who are 2 daughters. The hot water didn't work, the electricity system was a bit dangerous in terms of safety. The rooms were very basics. LUCKYLY, the price is appropriate to the quality of the service: low.
