The room itself was exactly what we expected... very small with only a bed and toilet/shower cubicle. We've stayed in rooms like these before (very similar to Generator Hostels) but never experienced a room so hot!! There is no way to control the heating in the room and has to be done by the front desk.. I don't believe the...

When booking a hotel and when you actively opt for a hotel that cost in the region of £170 for a 3 night stay in the city then you should be prepared to get what you paid for. This is basically a no frills box in amongst a load of other boxes with the kind of bed you asked for,...

Firstly, the room was so small it was ridiculous. There was no natural ventilation or light. The blind was broken and couldn't be adjusted, it was down fully the whole trip. In hindsight we should've checked out and found somewhere habitable. It's cheap, but OMG the amenities are so lacking.. I'd never go back, the website shows some great rooms...

Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. A lot of reviewers were complaining about the size and I thought - well you only sleep there so what is the problem. When I actually saw the room I understood. it was like a cell - too claustrophobic. Nowhere to put your things. No way to open the window and let the...

Room was a windowless box with a dirty floor. The box contained: two hooks on the wall, a waste basquet size of pen holder, one ceiling lamp, two separate beds that weigh tonns (too heavy to move together) and A/C that didn´t work. Bathroom was 1 sqm with a mini-size sink, toilet bowl, a shower with low pressure, a shower...

The room hasn't got a window, but at least it is clean. The room was not very big and there is no such thing as a wardrobe or chair. At least there is air conditioning in rhe room ( ours was not working properly though). For a short trip to London, this hotel is fine.

Great start, arrived and were ignored by staff for a solid 10 minutes. There wasn't actually a stair option to our room as the fire door didn't have a handle on it, so during a fire r.i.p to us. Window was the size of locker, could literally see the man in the office block opposite us working. No wardrobe, literally...

The rom had no windows or ventilation. Several guests opened the door into the hallway to get some air in to the room. It was not possible to get the temperature in the room below 27 deg C, so it was really great that it was only cold water in the shower so we could cool off... The room was...

It has just cost me £17.70 to cancel this booking within 24 hrs of them getting my request , (the reason for cancelling was family) .So be careful of booking this place as they will still have 2 weeks in which to fill my booking.
