I stayed for a night whilst on business in London. If you want a clean room which is central for £50 then there aren't too many choices. This does the job. It's just a bed and a small cubicle bathroom but it does the job. There are absolutely no frills, not even a bedside table or shelf to put your...

I understand that this is a no frills hotel and a basic place just to sleep and for the price you can't go wrong. However, the rooms a self contained boxes with no temperature control in them, making the night we had the most uncomfortable due to the intense heat in the room. There is only one pillow per person...

Me and my friend (who was visiting from the USA) stayed in this hotel for one night January 2017 whilst doing the usual tourist-y stuff. It was a last minute booking as we discovered our previous booking, whilst only slightly more expensive despite being higher stars, wanted to charge room deposits we couldnt' afford. We chose this hotel for the...

Cheap is the only good thing that I can say about this hotel. I visited it a few years ago and it was ok because it was brand new. During my recent visit there was a strong smell in my room, probably resulting from mould, that I just could not stand. I noticed some guests in other rooms had their...

The rooms just contain the bed, a hook for a coat and the small ensuite/shower room. Our room didn't have a window, but it was still very bright with the light on. However everything was clean and fresh, the hotel was perfectly acceptable given how cheap it is for central London. Around 7 minutes walk to the nearest tube station...

This hotel is at the most basic level you can imagine. Imagine only a bed and a bathroom just like the ones on a plane.. that is it! I know is a low budget but they can at least put an ikea basic corner table to put your stuff at night. Basically you have a bed, a square in the...

Room is near the station . It just walk around 5 mins. However the room is cheap , it's not big. You should ask the reception about the window room (the window can't open )and also confirm the size room that you booked. The breakfast has 1 box each room.

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, in my whole entire life! Disgusting tiny rooms with no windows no ventilation and broken air con. Rude staff, one thin sheet to cover bed which moved and mattress was disgusting, my partner woke up in the night feeling ill from dehydration due to heat in room. Only...

I am currently trying to sleep in this hotel and all I can hear and have heard for about 3 hours is staff yelling at each other. I have had the misfortune of being in a room. Ear the staff room and it appears that the staff do not know how to communicate without shouting or yelling. I find this...
