On arrival at this hotel (hostel) we were greeted by a very shabby reception room with ripped sofas. No hoover had been used in here and all the curtains were hanging off the rails.This hotel has the appearance of a cheap hostel rather than a hotel. The only good thing I can think to say about it was that the...

Basic hotel in a central location. Has everything you need but it is very small, could hardly move in the bathroom and toilet and the room only just fits a double bed but it was fine for what we needed. Tea/coffee replaced daily. Didn't pay for breakfast but gave us breakfast anyway, we only had it on our last morning...

Good location, very close to tube and train station. Short walk to Hyde Park. Rooms are not as seen in photos. Definitely a budget hotel. Needs a facelift. Carpets/curtains a bit grubby. Narrow stairs and no lift. We had room 303. Decent size, very small ensuite. Odd bits of furniture. Was very warm (almost too warm). Comfortable bed and clean...

Stayed at this "hotel" recently and was utterly disgusted with the state of the place! I am not one to moan or complain and having served in the forces have slept in some dubious places but I would never stay in this place again! The reception area looks like a taxi rank waiting room with a scabby sofa to sit...

I don't work for any grading council, but this hotel is certainly not worthy of three stars. The rooms are small, the shower is small and the heating in my room did not work, no blankets were provided. The hotel is tired and run down, in dire need of refurbishment. My mattress' was at least 50 years old with springs...

An appallingly shabby and tired hotel that is in desperate need of refurbishment. The dingy room I was given on the fourth floor was tiny and not particularly clean. Even though I had paid up front they had the gall to ask for £100 deposit!!! In case I damaged anything!!! Is this even legal? And the place was falling apart!...
