I'll be polite, This slum was a dirty horrible nasty ripped carpet stained walls grubby mess. The sheets and towels were clean to be fair, but whoever is in charge of this place should be locked up and sentenced to life.. in the Gresham Hotel. Horrible. Don't get me started about the traffic noise either...

I'll be very brief on this one. This is the kind of hotel you're sorry you have booked, the moment you step inside. -Terrible Service -Doubtful cleanliness -Always-on heater ( It's useless to ask receptionist how to switch it off) -Super uncomfortable (and hot) rooms

I have stayed in many hotels in London but this is the worst yet. I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom. There were no sockets in the room so couldn't charge mobile. Bathroom was filthy as was the room itself. Carpets falling apart. Fire doors propped open. Shocking that this place has not been closed down.

We have just returned from a one night stay at this hotel. 7 people in 3 rooms alloted in the annex just a little further down the road from the main building. I have to say having read some dreadful reviews I was really worried. 1st impressions old and grubby from the outside. Bedroom small and very basic, but on...

I booked this hotel as it was the cheapest that came up when looking for somewhere. My son had an appointment at Great Ormand Street so we were only staying one night. I had read the reviews but thought it couldnt be that bad! The staff were friendly and helpful. We were on the 3rd floor, no lift! The toilet...

this hotel is outrageous , Too bad I didn't check the reviews earlier. Dirty hall with foreign front desk people who didn't know a thing about anything. Small, dirty room, no shower... had to walk to another floor to wash myself, and cold water.. i don't understand why don't they close this place. It's actually dangerous. Location's the only plus.

I picked this hotel due to it's location and price. The booking procedure on booking.com was quick and simple. On arrival the receptionist was friendly enough and gave us directions to our room. I was surprised to find out it was back out the front door, turn left and 20 yards down the road. We were directed to The Annex....

The best feature, with regard to this hotel, is by far its location. A few minutes’ walk from Tottenham Court Rd tube station and the busy Oxford Street as well as being just around the corner from the British Museum. Having paid £40 for a room I was not expecting much in the way of comfort if I’m honest and...

I chose this hotel due to its location and value. Check-in was swift and staff friendly. There are no lifts, so I was offered a first floor room (originally would have been on the 2nd floor), so that was helpful. I wasn't expecting much (having found no positive reviews anywhere), but found the room to be clean, as well as...
