Let me say that when I booked this hotel, I did not read any reviews, but from the on-line booking service I was aware of the shared bathrooms, the lack of certain facilities, etc. And I was travelling alone, leaving my wife behind with my family. In my 65 years I have extensively travelled around the world, including some 20 years military service, where on exersize you don't have the luxury of porcelain flushing loos, or even courtesey curtains in the shower room. I have lived in dormitories, and shared facilities.
This place is not really as bad as is (not) painted but it is not great either. But for a start, the price ( paid 55 GBP per night) for its location, is in itself excellent value for money .. two minutes from the major Underground Station, and the Earls Court Exhibition Centre.
I was put on the top floor ... a tough climb for an OAP like myself, and once installed, decided to read the reviews, and start to write mine. Well, i am going to disappoint some of you doom-mongers from "The End of the World is Nigh Brigade" that I did not see, let alone hear one miserable mouse, there was no mould nor mildew in the bathrooms! I was hopnig to find a dirty T-shirt or two, and take them home to replace those borrowed by my grandchildren, but :No".
I went to buy some WC paper from reception, only to be told it was already in the bathrooms. And I waited for ages to see who this women was offering services for cash; but she didn't show her face (or whatever else it was she was supposed to show!) either.
There was evidence of work being undertaken (in fact, the website also said so), A plumber was present with his silicone gun. There was evidence of fresh paint, and polyfilla. Vacuum cleaners littered the staircase.
I would go again, but not on the top floor, and not with my wife, that is true.
And the young lady receptionist was excellent!
