“Gigantic Room”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

Amazingly large room on the top floor with 2 beds and a sofa. The breakfast is not as good as the windmill hotel in the same group but perfectly acceptable.
Good modern tiled toilet and shower, very clean and with complimentary toiletries.
Service very polite and smiling staff nothing was a problem.
Convenient location with bus stop outside and train station a few minutes away.
Good value for money.

Room Tip: Higher floor seems to have less traffic noise.

When arriving at the hotel te service was brilliant, polite and friendly. We had food which was superb, it's not often you get an amazing meal for a good price. Unfortunately the room ruined the whole experience. It was quite dreary, the decor was standard and quite dull, no colour in the room to lift it. Oh and the bed, now thy was horrendous, it was like sleeping on a concrete slab with only a sheet and a cheap thin blanket. I kep waking every hour as I was so uncomfortable, the bus and train seets were softer than the mattress in the hotel.

I stayed in a twin room of this hostel, which was clean, had very comfortable beds (but definitely on the soft end of the spectrum) and a good powerful shower. The room is directly above a pub and looks out onto the busy Grosvenor Road — and so can get noisy with traffic passing 24 hours a day. Beyond that is a terrific view of the river, this place really is right on the Thames. So, THE GOOD: nice river location, decent comfort in tall, airy rooms, friendly staff, free WiFi, easy transport links (get the #24 bus from Victoria or Pimlico tubes, stops right outside the pub and runs 24-hours). The NOT-SO-GOOD: no toiletries beyond loo paper so bring your own; this is not a peaceful location (but you kind of get used to the traffic noise); poor breakfast, really just the basics of coffee, corn flakes, muesli (looks like the cheapest available), sliced loaf and a toaster, plus "fruit juice" that tastes like watered-down J2O to me. All enough to get you started, but breakfast definitely not a "feature". In balance, residents get free hot drinks and soft drinks from the bar at any time. I paid £75 for the ensuite twin (room #2) via LateRooms.com which is good value for central London twin ensuite on a spring weekend with all day drinks and breakfast. When I checked in the grump on reception wanted to charge me £90 so had to correct him, so I guess that's their rack-rate for the room.
