SETTING THE SCENE Myself and two other family members were visiting London for the weekend. As the other two were travelling down from Manchester, I looked for a reasonably priced hotel close to Euston Train Station (it is literally a 5-minute walk). Having looked at other reviews on Trip Advisor (other review sites are available) I decided that I would...

Thanks for the review. We changed having breakfast included in the rate to keep the prices low - the thing our guest survey said they wanted the most - helping us lower the room prices to pass on the savings. Also we found that we couldn't offer the range of breakfast that people now expect - that a separate business...

This is a wonderful, centrally located, hotel. The price is right! Cozy and clean, the staff are most friendly. There is computer access in the common room. The adjoining restaurant is a must for a hearty breakfast that will set you up for the day. I recommend their magical porridge!

This was a great hotel for the one night we stayed in London. It was only a short walk from the underground. Pros: Good value for money Cons: Could hear ambulances a lot of the night as the hotel is right next door to the depot. No wifi in rooms, only available in the tv room downstairs Beds were a...

I've been using this hotel ever since October and have been to London monthly. It's a good night's rest, a clean and welcoming place and very close to the city center, within walking distance to Soho, Oxford Street, Holborn and Russel Square.

Position is amazing cause you have tube at 5min (Russel Square station) where you can arrive in just 2 stops to Picadilly. Soho (for pubs eat and fun) at 15min walking, and British Museum is 5min from the Hotel and it's free for everyone! That's a Hotel but it seams more similar to a hostel, infact the room have not...

Stayed here in December 2012. Husband and I both work in London and were out for the evening so decided to stay over rather than go home. Booked by email, asked for a double room with en suite. Email reply was prompt, easy to book. Paid £72 on arrival. When we checked in we were actually given a triple room...

Picked this place as it was cheap for a private room. Got a room in the separate building (3 doors down) but this was no problem at all. Room small, but clean and shared bathrooms were also clean and had decent working equipment. Run by nice people who were very helpful and a good location of about 5 minutes walk...

This review is about perfect for us - its what we aim to say on our website. Its all about expectations. We were marked down in the review for not having a toilet in the room, but we do have ensuite rooms - just ask when booking.
