First off, the hotel has a great location only two minutes walk from Euston station. If you're stay in London is solely based on location and price, this hotel is perfect.
We checked in and were given the keys to our rooms. Neither of which were ready when we went up to them. Usually you would be told this upon checking in, but at this hotel we were given the keys and only found out when we got there. One of our rooms was in the process of being cleaned and the other hadnt been started yet. We waited for one room to be cleaned, dumped our cases in and left for the day.
The beds are actually very comfy and the linen was very clean and fresh. The carpet was quite dirty, lots of hairs and fluff balls that stuck to any item of clothing that came into contact with it.
There isnt really much storage space in the rooms and there is quite alot of road noise through the night, but it didnt cause too much problem. We pushed our twin beds together but they were both a different height so werent really very good to be used as a double.
The general decor around the hotel is very tired and needs a refurb. There are toilets and showers between each four rooms, but on the last day two of the loos were filthy all morning. Other guests hadnt flushed them which meant only one loo was usable and noone had been in to check them from early morning when we got up, until afternoon when we next needed to use these facilites.
The breakfast although not fantastic, was okay and had a nice selection. The staff werent very entusiastic and the tables were quite dirty when sat down, but the food was okay.
On the day of departure we checked out and left our cases with the porter until collection later in the day, this service costs 50 pence per suitcase.
Overall, this hotel is in a fantastic location, but is poor in cleanliness and general standard. If you're on a solely budget orientated trip then it's well suited because it does what it says on the tin, but please don't go expecting any sort of luxury.
