I arrived at the hotel late on the 3rd December as I was staying in London for a night for a conference on the 4th. On arrival I asked whether there was any chance anyone could bring me something up for breakfast at 7am the next morning, as I was set to leave the hotel before 7:30am which was before breakfast was due to start. I was told this was not possible as it was the responsibility of another department and it wouldn't be possible to co-ordinate. So despite the fact I had paid for breakfast I didn't receive any.
I then walked up the extremely narrow staircase up to my room on the 4th floor, which was quite a struggle with a suitcase and not much space! The room was extremely small but as I was only staying for 8 hours I decided it was fine as long as I got a good night's sleep. Unfortunately I was woken at 2am by my drunken neighbours. The walls were paper thin so I was constantly being woken up by people, as well as the sound of the pipes, which were ridiculously loud. Needless to say I had one of the worst night's sleep ever, but to make matters even worse, there was no hot water when I showered in the morning!! How can a hotel not have hot running water?! I was forced to have a cold shower which is completely unacceptable in a hotel! I then made myself a cup of tea with the kettle in the room seeing as I wasn't going to get any breakfast. The tea curdled as I poured the milk in as I later realised it was out of date!
I wouldn't recommend anyone to stay here, it was absolutely terrible. No sleep, no hot water, no breakfast and not even a cup of tea to make up for it all!
