“Great Value Hotel!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

Arrived to a friendly welcome, clear and full explanation of hotel entry, breakfast times, checkout etc. ( not unlike the larger chains!!!!)
The room was clean, and welcoming, with good quality linen on the beds. This included, complimentary chocolate, soap, shampoo and a rather nice bottle of sparkling Rose wine!!!!! Along with a handwritten note welcoming and wishing us a pleasant stay.
The bathroom was compact, but clean with adequate shower, good quality towels and plenty of hot water....good extractor too, that worked......
Breakfast, although served in a limited seating dining room was adequate and served quickly and well presented. A limited selection of cereals, plenty of tea and coffee, plenty of 'self serve' toast.....one 4 slice toaster may not look like it can cope.....but......it does!!!!! A few minutes patience and everyone gets their toast......( the dining room was full when we had breakfast....and I only waited for minutes.......seriously it was stress free!!!)
We've stayed here twice now, and will stay again!,,,,
The over and above helpfulness when I realised I'd forgotten to bring some e-tickets......the staff were really helpfull ( I don't think it's a regular service from the reception) and printed them out with no questions asked and just the whirr of the printer. The hotel has two buildings, just a step from each other, so DON'T be put off by the thought.
Deffo worth a try if you like the cunningly disguised B+B....that has hidden HOTEL features!!!!!

Room Tip: No lift, but friendly stairs.....

I am shocked by some of the reviews here of the Admiral Hotel. Yes, the reception is in an adjacent building but the staff were excellent and very friendly. Our bathroom was absolutely spotless - much cleaner than the 4star hotel we stayed in the night before in Bournemouth! Shampoo and soap were provided along with clean towels and clean bedding. I agree that this is not a luxury hotel but I've stayed in much worse for a lot more money. The next time we stay in London this will be my first choice!!

Booked for several days in this hotel but discovered that the Reception is on the other building, Kingsway Hotel. We were sent back to the Admiral Hotel with the key but as soon as we entered the room, we discovered that the room is not clean and had a bad smell. We then went back to the Reception and was offered another room however as soon as we settled in the room, there is no difference with the previous room and ended up just staying in the same room. The bathroom was dated and not properly maintained and clean. You can see that the taps and shower head are dirty and there was a mold along the bath tub where the taps are. The sink in the bathroom is also broken and the stopper doesn’t work properly. Lack of ventilation in the bathroom made the situation worse after shower. The toilet was not properly clean and you can see that there were still some faeces at the end of the bowl and no matter how many times we flushed it, it’s still there and does not disappear. We were not given toiletries and had to request for some toilet papers, no shampoo or soap provided. The housekeeping either forgotten to put some or think that the half used roll will do for the day. The liquid dispenser in the bathroom is also empty.

The carpet in the room is dirty and need to be steamed clean to remove the terrible smell. We tried to open the window but it only made the situation worse as the smell spread around the room. The bed is also worn out and you can see already the wooden frame and two single beds were joint together with a screw. Their blankets are dirty and have not been washed I suppose because of the colour and smell. The bed-sheet cover that matches the curtain in bed is also dirty and need a quick wash to get rid of the smell.

The hair-dryer in the room doesn't work, the kettle is also not properly maintain and need to be washed properly. Overall the place is terrible and I would not recommend it to anyone. The only thing good in this hotel is their location.

Finally, the breakfast is just one slice of bacon, one egg, one small sausage but you have to ask to get it. The staffs in the breakfast room are nice and friendly.

Room Tip: The size of the rooms are big enough if you compare this hotel to some other hotels in the area. If...

This hotel was better than expected! The room was nice and clean, the value is ok, the location is excellent and the staff is very friendly and helpful! It's not a luxury hotel but it's a perfectly ok hotel. We will not hesitate to use this hotel again.

With a jet lag and arrived at an early morning we just want a comfortable room to relax and recover our energy To our surprise we got to carry our 2 large bags through staircase to level 3!!! Maybe I had a wrong perception that all hotels in London have lift...our first day in London ended with back spasm and cramps!!! The room can hardly fit three pax.. I am sure glad that Malaysian budget hotels are world class!!!

The hotel looks excellent from the outside but beware. The hotel is narrow & in no way spacious. The rooms are small and on six levels with no lift. The on-suite we had was very small and the only toiletries supplied for 4 people were one small bar of soap & two shampoos. The window in our room was exceedingly dirty but at least the beds were clean. The breakfast was fine but not a breakfast to remember.
Their plus point was that the owners & staff were pleasant & helpful.
So for one night's stay it was OK but any longer it would have been a problem.
