Reviewed 8 July 2013 via mobile

On arrival we we found the receptionist very charming and helpful, the hotel itself is very much in need of an up date, the entrance is very dated and untidy, refurbishments were taking place while we were staying, this did not cause us any inconvienience but had to step over the workmens tools and packs of wall tiles were stacked up in the entrance which really shouldnt have been there, the room was very old fashioned but the bathroom was beautiful, these were clearly part of the hotels refurb, which is long overdue, had a nice stay, comfy bed , good breakfast, polite and friendly staff, and cheap. All in all a very very basic hotel, would stay again

***WORSE HOTEL IN HISTORY***

There is no porter on site, the staff don't even stay on the premises soon as the reception is closed, in a emergency you had to ring a mobile number!

This hotel (the word hotel there is over used for this place) I think a tramp can live in better conditions. This place should NOT be open. All visitors need to keep away.

We were in the basement room, we had no sleep whatsoever as a couple of guests decided they wanted to stay in the sitting area for all guests till 4am talking really loudly/screaming/laughing! We then couldn't sleep because of the live cockroach roaming about (pictures to prove) And this is the area where you would eat your breakfast in the mornings!!!
Instead of replacing the broken blind, they have put scrunched up napkin paper to fill in the gap. A very dangerous open end cable tied up on ceiling of bathroom.
All walls damp and mouldy. The beds need to be tipped away, the springs are non-existent, full of bed bugs as my friends back is covered in bite marks. Refused to sleep with there duvets as they smelt dirty (dark patterned 80's duvet covers, cover up all multiple of sins) so we suffered being cold with just the one white sheet.

We stayed because we had no where else to go, my friend was heavily pregnant and we wanted to sleep! To which we didn't even get. We left the hotel at 6:30am as couldn't stand it much longer.

Something better will come up, be patient and save your money.

Room Tip: Save your money and go else where. Wish I booked into a hostel as they looked a lot cleaner.

Stayed here for one evening when having a night out in South Kensington. Although the location is great, the hotel itself is shocking and probably the worst place I have ever stayed. It was like a hostel or children's home. Scruffy, worn, smelly, outdated and generally very very unpleasant. My husband wanted to sleep in his clothes it was so bad. Check out was at 10am on a Sunday which was pretty inconvenient, however we couldn't wait to leave.

My room was for one person but contained 4 beds. It was large and cold. The receptionist when I checked in told me to leave the portable heating on all day even when I was out the room so it would heat up the room. The second day of my stay i at least had a warmish room, however whenever I left the heating on afterwards the cleaner turned it off and I would return to a freezing room again. Despite asking the eastern european cleaner, who spoke no english, to keep it on I returned each day to it switched off. The room wasn't the cleanest but the bed was comfortable. The breakfast room was small and cluttered and the choice not the greatest but for the price in London I have had worse.

Room Tip: make sure you ar not in the basement

We were here for 6 nights and the stay was almost perfect. The hotel has an amazing locations.The room was clean, very cosy and comfortable, with beatiful view.The bathroom facilities need renovating, but they were also clean. The breakfast isn't too much, but just enough.The only problem was that, one of the bathrooms on the upper floor had a plumbing problem and we were woken up ,every morning in 7 o'clock by strange noises.
Perfect olace, especially for that price.

Room Tip: choose floor second or above

inside the building is very old, there are a lots of crooked stairs, no soap in the toilets, noisy wooden floor, very poor breakfast (no biscuits, no yogurt, no fruits). it looks more a hostel than a hotel. for young people or students is fine, NOT for families.

More than pleasantly surprised by this place, given the reviews, but what do people expect for the price?! £55 for a twin room, it was clean and in a really nice location (to be honest when walking from Gloucester road tube station we thought we must have the wrong place!). No problems getting into the shared bathrooms, which were clean and the showers were great. Staff were very helpful, particularly when it came to storing our luggage and collecting in a rush on the way to the station. Breakfast room is very small for the number of guests but easy to make your own breakfasts and there was someone there to wash up. Would stay here again, easy walking distance to Hyde park, etc.
