“Very expensive for the poor quality”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013 via mobile

I went there after a long drive from Scotland expecting to find a nice clean 4 stars hotel.
The place was easy to find but once you step inside of it you think it's an old students hostel those you see in movies spooky and scary with rates of £5.00 per night and like 50 share the same toilet.
Only one person at the reception desk and it was very hot. AC is expected by nature in any 4 stars hotel.
Check in completed I got my room keys it was in the third floor. Took me some time trying to figure where the lift which wasn't there any and I had to walk up the stairs to find my room
The room itself was very small very smelly and very dirty
Have a look at the pictures
There was lots of blood marks on the bed sheet
Shower head was broken

I went downstairs to complain found the reception closed as it seems I was the last victim to check in

Stayed the night trying not to touch the blood stains and couldn't sleep

In the morning made complaint and the reply was expected for rubbish dustbin dirty disgusting hotel like this offered me free upgrade when I book again with them
My reply was hahahahahaaaaasaasasa


Please never book this hotel ever if you want to enjoy your trip.

it's a very clean and confortable studio apartments. The rooms are really small but enough to stay few days (we stayed 9 days). there is no lift, but is ok for Young people. very close to a bus stop and overground station. the hotel is located few meters from the main road, so there is not much noise and is really good to sleep. the bed was also really confortable. the internet connection the worst that I ever tried (I've used better connections even in Peru!!). I would come back again. It´s a good value. All the staff was very kind. we couldn´t call to chile through room phone, we had to use Skype but was difficult due to bad internet connection. we had a great stay.

Looking for somewhere to crash then this is perfect. Close (within 15 mins) to 3 tube stations.

Along with the usual tea and coffee facilities there is a microwave and a small fridge. Near by is a Pizza Express along with other restaurants, in the morning there's a lovely cafe.

Room and bathroom is clean and comfortable. The rooms aren't huge but if you're just sleeping that's not a problem.

Only downside for our visit was that one of the cups were filthy. Something we didn't discover until the morning.

Branded a 4 star hotel and it does have the usual facilities tea/coffee, iron, safe, flat screen TV, en-suite bathroom but has a very 'basic' feel to it. Room, wardrobe and bathroom very small and surprising there was no carpet. On the plus side it's in a quiet area and very convenient for Olympia and Kensington High Street.

Don't stay here - go back to lastminute.com & book a 'Secret Hotel' , they seldom let you down. Rooms tiny, no carpet - you hear everybody walk . Bathroom a joke & fridge literally the size of a shoe box . No lift. Two feet between bed and wall & bed small!

The rooms are tiny & I mean tiny. Small bed & no room for your luggage. The bathroom is a joke more like one on an airline .

It's a terraced house that 'brands' itself as a 'hotel' . You compromise everything to stay here & gain nothing .

Great little hotel, just a few hundred yards from Olympia/Kensington High Street. Very quiet street, you wouldn't know you're in London! The room was not big (hey, it's in London) but very well appointed, with microwave/fridge/sink, OK for simple meals or microwave dishes from the local supermarket(s). My only criticism is the hard laminate wood floors, which were noisy/creaky, I felt that carpet would have been much nicer, if harder to maintain. For this reason alone they loose 1 star from an otherwise faultless 5 star rating! That said, the location is great, with buses and tubes near by. We will definitely stay here again as it's so convenient for Olympia, Kensington High St, The Albert Hall etc. Some great restaurants and pubs nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel (ours was number 5) are even quieter.
