Before we got re-located to this Hotel, we stayed at the Eurohotel, which we tremendously missed. (I have written a write up of the Eurohotel in TripAdvisor).
Closer to the end of our stay we got re-located to this Hotel. Eurohotels and Royal Guest hotels are the same chain, but just located on a different block on the same street. After being treated with kindness and laughter, we were shocked that the host of this hotel was very rude. Once we got into the hotel, he demanded payment upfront. We had everything packed so we requested to get the keys first and we will come down for payment. After we got ourselves setted on the 5th floor, we went down to talk to him. He literally screamed/argued with us like we were his own daughters. Luckily my friend has high tolerance or else I would of probably cried and left the building. Hotel Rooms are cosy, just enough space for your luggage (floor space) and the bed. It is an older building, the plumbling didn't work 30% of the time. My high tolerance friend got water completely stopped in the middle of her shower, then she had to wait 5 mins until the water got hot again. Our sink was slightly broken, one of the handles was missing. The maid forgot to give us fresh towels on the next day. They serve the same breakfast in the morning, however the cook doesn't give you choice of eggs (just scrambled).
The price is very affordable for central London location. I would definitely stay at Eurohotel again. However, if I get moved to the Guest House #2 I will try to beg to stay or go somewhere else for the night.
*A little note for first time buyers it cost 24pounds for a week pass, including the charge of the card. However, if you are just staying for a few days it is ideal just to buy the Oyster Card on its own and put money in it. The card cost 3pounds and within Zone 1 & 2 the maximum cost of travel is 4.40pounds, where one trip can cost up to 1.80pounds. So even you use the card multiple times during the day it will only cost at most 4.40pounds.
