“Location and Value for Money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

We found the location excellent, a lovely tree lined oasis, you feel you are really in the heart of London - between Trafalgar Sq and the river Thames. Literally 5 mins walking distance from Charing Cross Station. From arriving to leaving the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was on the eighth floor at the front with an extra large disabled bathroom. We were not disturbed by any noises during the night even with the famous pub opposite which closed around 11.30pm. The bed was fairly comfortable with very clean bedding. The towels were replaced every day except Sundays. Extremely good value for money

My single room was comfortable with one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The ensuite was small but adequate and the towels were changed everyday. I can thoroughly recommend this venue as it is central for so much sightseeing. I was able to walk to theatres and galleries with ease and cross the river to the South Bank. The kitchen was well equipped with free tea and coffee. It also had an ironing board and iron for use. There is a lift which makes life easier. The staff were friendly and very helpful. I will go back again and would highly recommend this accommodation. First class!

Room Tip: Near top of bulding and near a kitchen.

This is a student dorm in London School of Business. Only offer for visitor accommodation during school holidays. I was there for a week during September and enjoyed the proximity to many attractions.

Traveller must note that this is not a hotel and only a dorm. Rooms and beds are comfortable but carpet needs good cleaning. Major down side is the toilet, which is a portable toilet fixed inside the room, and rooms were cleaned only 1 day for the whole week we stayed there. Facilities include laundry, shared kitchen, left baguage service.

Overall, great location (right next to trafalgar square) and good price.

Excellent location as a base for exploring central London. Basic accommodation, but dry, warm and quite clean (well, apart from the carpets). Don't expect luxury at this price but well worth considering if, like me, you are appalled by London hotel prices.
Apparently it was built as the Victoria Hotel and was the first hotel visited by a member of the Royal family.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the building on a higher floor to get some light, a bit of a view but...

This beautiful building is just off Trafalgar Square, so a fantastic location to explore London from. If you like luxury hotels then this is not for you, but if you like clean, comfortable, friendly and value for money accommodation you should give this a try.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper ask for a room away from the road, they were very quiet.

Just off Trafalgar square, the location of this simple and clean property can't be any better... The rooms are VERY basic and it does feel like a college dormitory: cheap furnishings and so-so beds... but who cares? It's very cheap for the location, there a clean towels and sheets provided, in a secure building. For the price, I would definitely stay here again.

Excellent location and very helpful staff. Beds comfortable, room fine though bathroom very small. Wouldn't want to stay around property, obviously not comfortable hotel, but I expect most people want what we wanted -a convenient base. It's location is excellent, and despite this generally very quiet there. Am planning to go again in the future
