“Cheap isn't always good value”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

The photos on the website don't do justice to the griminess of this hotel. I suppose location is important, and we were only planning to sleep here, but the whole experience was disappointing. The stair carpets were very shabby, stained and threadbare. The room was similar, with poorly made beds and unidentifiable stains on the carpets, walls and bathroom tiles. Breakfast consisted of a buffet where the croissants were cold, and the coffee was like dishwater, mixed from a machine. Surly staff with no customer service skills added to the overall misery.

Everyone says hotels in London are small and old, and they were right. The hotel was small with no elevators. The rooms match the pictures they show online, however they are very small even by London standards. Hardly enough room for 3 suitcases. They did not provide the correct amount of towels, and they were not friendly about providing any extra necessities even when we asked. The bathroom was like a broom closet with hair still left on the shower wall from the previous guests. The breakfast room was in the basement and very cramped, with hardly enough seating for a constantly busy room, and was just the bare minimum in terms of food quality. It was not cheap by any means, but for London standards it was on the lower end of the price range and it is in a convenient location (easy walking distance to Buckingham Palace or Westminster Abbey and tons of restaurants - so for that reason, it was acceptable. However, next time we would definitely pay a bit more and have a much nicer hotel somewhere even closer to attractions.

Location is excellent.
Bedroom was tiny even for London standards. The "en suite" was freezing cold,due to no heating and also very small. Staff at reception unfriendly and cold. The breakfast room was too small for the amount of guests. Couldn't even get in the door of the breakfast room it was so full throughout breakfast times. Check out is 10.30 am, never experienced such an early checkout in any hotel I have stayed in around the world. £10.00 per extra hour late checkout, which had to be paid in cash to the receptionist, no receipt available.

The room was tiny (though they still managed to squeeze in a double and two single beds) and located in the basement so it had a lovely view of some bin bags and plenty of street noise. The bed was uncomfortable, there was barely room to move in the bathroom and worst of all, there was no hot water for the duration of my stay. The decoration is cheap and grubby. The best thing I can say was that the Wifi worked. Luckily though I was only staying one night because this place really is a dump.

Value for money. A small room with all the necessities, incl. an transformer so we could charge our Danish mobile phones. There was a loooong stairway (our room was on the third floor, but it seemed higher up) - no lift. It was SO close to Victoria stations (both train, tube and coach) which was really nice! I would recommend this hotel - if you want something close to public transportation and you're not planning on spending too much time in the room.

I must say I was a bit surprised with this hotel as it really exceeded my expectations. I booked a room for one night stopover in London instead of Gatwick area and I was a bit hesitant given the low rate I got it for. I must say that the room and bathroom were small, but clean. The service fairly polite and swift and the rate even included breakfast. So, if you are looking for a budget hotel in central London, this is a good choice.

Stayed there in January 2014. Good and efficient welcome. Had a family room on the third floor with no lifts but they offered to carry the luggage up. Good size room typical of London hotels. Shower was large. Breakfast was good with just what you need to start your day. Not far from Victoria coach and train station but far enough not to hear the noise. Would stay there again.
