“Cheap but not cheerful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2010

Booked this hotel as I needed a place to stay at short noticeand the premier inns etc had no vacancies in this part of London. That is all that it is suitable for. The staff are very helpful but only the actual bed sheets seemed clean. The rest of the bedding, the curtains, carpet and bathroom are dreadful. The reception desk is only open at certain hours. It is cheap but not worth the money as the whole place needs cleaned and painted.

Good location, easy access to transportation, good breakfast..
Staff cooperative. Clean sheets and washroom.
I would stay there gain if they would replace old blankets and bed spreads for new ones. It was not pretty pulling an old ugly blanket over you to sleep at nights, it just did not feel good.

We only stayed here because it was the cheapest en suite room we could find in London while we were moving flats. Luckily it is also in our neighborhood in North London. If you are not from London, be aware that there is nothing "central" about this hotel. It lies in Golders Green, which is a neighborhood in North London (zone 3). It is a nice area and the hotel is walking distance to the tube.

I am not picky, but this place was so unreasonably run-down... paint peeling off the walls, old shower with chipped tile, dank smell, old shabby blankets, filthy glasses and tea cups in the room. We never tried the breakfast for fear that it wouldn't be sanitary.

Also the boiler broke down one day and we had no hot water. We were made to take all of our toiletries and change of clothes to a room in the other annex of the building (with outdoor access only). We were told by the duty manager that we would receive compensation, but never did.

Also- the internet never worked.

Seriously- pay 10-15pounds more per night and stay somewhere decent.
