Reason for rating: Good: Extremely central location Close to the British Museum and a whole host of other attractions. All extremely close by. Staff very gentle and helpful. Timings of hotel reception is fine and provide a key to the main door in case you're late in night. Bad: No lift. Perpetual repair it seems. Honestly, the under repair sticker...

I have been there in October for four nights and I had bad expectations but I realized that the B&B was really good. The room (for four) was clean and spacious, the shared bathroom was really clean and they offered a good breakfast with several types of cereals, toast, sausage, eggs and bacon, tea or coffee and jams. The staff...

Me and a friend stayed here for 6 nights. The room was small but very clean. However we were not aware that we had to share a bathroom with other guests. The shared bathroom was always very clean which made it alright. Included breakfast was nice, and the staff were very attentive and friendly.

The hotel was only five minutes walk from 3 different tube stations. Check in was quick and easy, the receptionist was super helpful showing us where to go etc. The room was quite dated but who cares when we got it so cheap and were only sleeping there. Everything was clean and towels were clean too. Breakfast was usual English...

First on arrival you find the front door is locked. When you do finally book in, you travel up very creaking stairs to find what is called a double ensuite. It was but tiny! Bed against the wall, no net curtains which means the building opposite can see right in! I think the room had been recently renovated but whilst...

This is a typical B&B located next door to British Museum. The room I got had a shared bathroom, but it was pretty decent. Good for those willing for a cheap and still good accomodation in central London.
