No shower curtain or toilet seat, no lampshade or bedside lamp, ill fitting curtains and no waste basket. It's a bed In a cold room with a loo. That's it. The room was closed to the linen cupboard and heaven knows why that had to access that 3 times between 1am and 3am.

Disgusting!! The worst part of my stay was the bathroom, the smell was unexplainable, I refused to use the bathroom at all because I new once I opened the door the room was going to fill with that horrible stink!! Very thin windows and walls so you can here all the traffic going past including the foot traffic inside the... More

You will get what you paid for.I honestly don't have an idea how that hotel is still running. Really bad experience.One good thing I could say is that staff at hotel was friendly and polite. But never again.

I awarded this hotel 3*, only due to the amenities. For the price I paid (£65) it's a 5*. I stayed in room 21, which had two single comfortable beds and an en suite The en suite had a toilet and a compact shower. The room had a decent sized flat screen tv, double wardrobe, hairdryer, large windows that opened,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as cheap but wish I'd checked out the reviews first. Only 5 mins walk from tube but the road approaching hotel is very off putting. Very unkept properties. Check in was fast and efficient and staff were very polite but the room/hotel is in bad need of a spruce up! Bed linen was clean...That's the... More

Stayed here 1 night by accident, as the hotel I'd actually booked had no room! They were pretty efficient booking me in to the last available room, a 2+1 which was clean but in DIRE need of redecoration, had no bedside tables or lamps (and no shade on the one in the ceiling). Ditto the bathroom which had a bath... More

Despite the nice looking pictures on their website, they may as well be of another hotel! This place was terrible, the rooms that were given to us were really bad. The on suite toilet and bathroom stank, the curtains were shabby and old and the room was so small it was laughable. I wouldn't board my neighbours dog there. The... More

You get what you pay for in London, and this hotel is cheap. Positives: Clean, new-looking linen. Room and bathroom were reasonably clean (within the limits possible with poor maintenance) Negatives: The part of the hotel I was in consists of poorly converted houses. Narrow stairways and corridors, small rooms, original bathrooms that haven't been upgraded for many years, random... More

Ive just stayed here for four nights and four utterly terrible breakfasts. Upon arrival my room was stinking , the dirty curtains were drawn and the windows closed. So the room just smelled. The toilet seat was broken and the loo was leaking. The light switch and power switch for the shower was loose on the wall. There was so... More

This place is appalling. Everywhere you look is poorly maintained, and not very clean. The room I got stinks (26). No smoking is a joke... This window sill is covered in fag burns. The shower is pathetic, as it's clogged with scale. The bed was just put in the middle of the room, due to the low ceiling. Mind your... More
