Reviewed 25 November 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights from Nov 5th to 10th. The room with a double bed was small but adequate with nice bathroom/shower and desk space. The location is without any doubt, excellent - close to buses, underground train, and museums. The check in was quick, and the staff was very friendly and courteous. They gave us map and directions without any hesitation. The continental breakfast in the morning was excellent. We recommend this highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Eden Plaza, as we were watching the wimbledon final the next day. The taxi driver drove us down a brilliant road and arrived at the eden plaza. The room was clean, but quite small. However a big room wasn't necessary for our stay. The breakfast was tasty, but not much on offer. Yet overall it was a great stay

I booked a single the Eden Plaza on an internet special,specifying a four-star accommodation. The hotel is straightforward to find, well marked and on a major intersection across from the museum. There are many good restaurants nearby and the Tube is within easy walking distance. The staff was friendly and check-in was handled well. however, parking was a surprise: I was directed to the nearby Union Parking lot (the hotel has no parking of its own) which charged 50 gbp for overnight parking, close to the discounted room rate!

The second surprise was the room: as a single room,it was scarcely bigger than the bed. It was clean and had a nice view,well appointed with free internet, coffee-tea service, safe, and a firm comfortable bed. The bathroom was very clean and modern,and the shower had excellent pressure and hot water. But you basically sit on the bed to work at the desk.

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room, plan ahead for parking

Stayed at the Eden Plaza as had tickets for the Albert Hall. Ideal location, 10 minutes walk approximately. Also restaurants and pubs nearby, Gloucester Street had lots of choice.
The hotel itself was contempary, clean and all that was required for 1 nights stay.
The room was a little compact but this was not an issue, main thing is cleanliness was good. Bed was comfy also!

Room Tip: The hotel is on the corner of 2 roads and traffic noise is noticeable in the morning but its obvious...

Pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Nice clean room with a view of the museum from the Window. By London standards it was value for money. Breakfast was basic but fine and the shower had good water pressure - something that always annoys me when it's not good. All in all for the price and the location I was happy compared to other hotels I have stayed in in London.

I have never had a smaller room, even in the cheapest of b and b's or hotels that I have stayed in. The bathroom was a nice size, and the shower was good, but the bathroom was grubby.
The double bed was pushed against a wall, so if you needed to get up in the night, it disturbed your partner. The bedroom walls were dirty with coffee stains on them. The walls are paper thin, making it very noisy. The staff were friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast cost extra, and the meat and cheese were poor quality, though you could eat as much as you wanted.
Not enough hanging space for clothes if you were staying for more than one night. The wi fi was advertised as free, but actually cost £5 per day.
Good location, but wouldn't want to stay there again.
