I've checked out of this hotel within the past hour and still can't believe how bad it really is. I still feel itchy and generally unclean from my stay there! I don't expect much for £80 in London but the bare minimum is that it should be clean and tidy. When me and my girlfriend first arrived we were given... More

The company I work for had to book this for me at short notice, some of my work colleagues had stayed the night before and had cleanliness issues but I wasn't aware of this until check in, if that was the only problem I could have lived with that, but the hotel is right next to the train line and...

Unhelpful staff,dirty small room,was noisy outside with the church thats across the street ringing bells at all hours.

Booking a room in London on the cheap a week in advance never really gets you somewhere nice but this place was worse than expected. Basically although cheaper than most places I'd still consider changing money for these rooms daylight robbery. Here's a list of complaints, which is by no means compressive: 1) it's is attached to a fish/chicken/burger shop... More

We stayed here for 1 night. Very close to tube with a shop next door. We wernt aware that they took a prepayment on the day of stay meaning I struggled for cash for the remainder of my break. Rooms are clean and tidy but basic. Food was decent and just what we needed first thing in the morning. I... More

I booked to stay at this establishment as I was in London for a friend's birthday and also to have a catch up with my ex colleagues at my previous place of employment. From the moment I walked in on the evening of the 2nd September, I could see the place fell firmly in the category of functional, I knew... More

This is by far the worst place I have ever stayed and is certainly not worth the £89 pound we paid for one night. Where to start... As soon as we entered it was apparent how outdated the place is. There was also stuff everywhere empty boxes and dead plants in the corridors. When we got into the room it... More

Heard a lot of bad things about this hotel, but took the chance anyway. The bad points. Arrived at 2.00pm check-in time only to be told the room wasn't ready. Paid for the room with cash, only to be told we have no change. So went to the Salmon and Ball Pub for a drink, and returned an hour later.... More
