I highly recommend this hotel for the budget oriented tourist. Not the most modern amenities but the hotel is located near the tube, very clean, and the front desk staff was very helpful when asking questions on the local community. Lots of steep steps which after a long flight and dragging a heavy bag on the tube can be quite cumbersome.
The only odd thing was having to turn in your key everytime you left the hotel, which I assume is for security purposes. After 5 PM you must pick up your key at the neighboring Phoenix Hotel. All in all I will stay at this hotel again.
