Access with an emailed code for the door. En suite was clean and tidy but room G is a bit noisy being by the front door and with rooms above. All round, a good hotel and does the job. There is a Sofa in room and tv so a good size. Power shower is nice and always had hot water

I was disappointed with this hotel. The bed had a massive dip in the middle and the TV needed to be re-tuned. I also asked for a bedroom without too many stairs but was put on the top floor. When something goes wrong, there is only a mobile number to call. The hotel is only staffed from 12pm to 6pm....

My boyfriend and I stayed here Friday and Saturday night over the bank holiday, and after reading some reviews on here I was slightly concerned, but it wasn't necessary as I had no issues whatsoever with this place. It was tidy, modern and in an amazing location.. 10 minute walk to Euston, 15 minute walk to Covent Garden and Russell...

This hotel was booked pretty last minute by my partner for a one night stay in London to see a show in Soho. Checking in was very quick and easy as this was all done via email. The keycard for the room was located in a coded box just inside the hotel after we gained access via another code. Much...

First off let me start by saying it was adequate and did exactly what you would need from a small hotel. Just a couple of issues though. There was a strong smell of sewage that emanated from the en-suite every so often and the shower took an age to get hot. Seriously, turn it on about 5-10 minutes before you...

I was staying here for a 4 course in Covent Garden, for the price, I was pleasantly surprised, the bed was REALLY comfortable and although very small, the room had everything I needed. It's location, a two minute walk from Russel Square tube, is fantastic and there's every sort of shop you can need very close by (Brunswick Centre) -...

Stayed 2 nights. Rooms are small but very clean. Perfect location for Leicester Square. If you just need a room to sleep it's great. Walls are thin & had to put up with a couple having a very loud argument but nothing the hotel can do about that. Plenty of shops pubs & cafes close by.

We read the reviews but gave them chance They gave us different room on top floor Filthy, smelly disgusting! Nobody answered phone , we moved hotel. They kept our money! Not even an apology or move rooms We took photos cos we couldn't believe it. The lower rooms probably better hence some good reviews

Lots of negative reviews on here and I'm glad I didn't read them ( or show my other half!) before I booked it. For central London on a Friday night around Christmas this was great value for money, clean, comfortable, and the locking system worked fine. Don't expect a concierge or any glamour and you won't be too put out,...
