“ugly bulding, nice room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

The hotel is located between zone 2 and zone 3, not so far from zone 1 and there are at least 3 different buses to the center on average of waiting of maximum 10 minutes.
The building is ugly but the room is quite nice, big (3 single beds for 2 persons) and clean.
Breakfast anyway is the only very bad thing: nothing at all good to eat!
Reception very kind.
So, if you have not high expectations and want a hotel quite near to the center and quite cheap you can go there.

Please don't be fooled by the good reviews.
The only one good point of this hotel - it is rather cheap.

I chose this hotel because of convenient location for me and good reviews.
It appeared that good reviews are good only because the administrator is very pleasant women, who asks guests to write those reviews because otherwise she won't get her bonus.

The breakfast was OK for me, but the choice is quite limited and always the same.
It doesn't look and feel clean. It smells awful everywhere (I tried different rooms)!!
In order to get to the city center you'd have to spend about half an hour by public transport.
Never again!

Two of us stayed for one night in a twin room. Very clean and comfortable room with a great hot power shower! Friendly, kind and helpful housekeeper. Easy to find and in a good location.

Nice place. Room was very cozy and clean. Easy to get to the city from there because it was so central. A lot of people walking at night which made us feel safe. Lots of shops which made it very convenient for us.
The receptionist and housekeeper were very friendly.

A nice place, clean and quiet. The house keeper is very kind and helpful. The neighbourhood is safe and it is only 20 minutes away from Oxford Circle by tube.

Hotel is situated in Stamford Hill, a rather multi-cultural but safe and calm area. Most rooms face garden, only the one we stayed in was fronting the main road, and was therefore, rather noisy. The room was quite spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Only problem was that we were given a smoking room (without asking for it or knowing about it), and the smell of cigarettes was quite strong.
The hotel is Jewish run (which is not a problem) but the so-called "continental" comprised fish, eggs, cereals and yogurts - no cheese and for obvious reasons no bacon ;-)
There are several direct buses leaving from bus stops about 3 minutes from the hotel that will get you to the centre of London within about 30 to 40 minutes. If you don't mind a bit of travelling, you can get this nice place for much less money than similar hotels closer to the City.

Room Tip: If you are a non-smoker, ask specifically for a non-smoking room (the one we stayed in stank quite b...
