“Almost perfect for my needs”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

This hotel was great, easy to find, central, friendly, clean, affordable and the shower was great! My only comment is regarding sound insulation - not great, unfortunately there were young girls who were noisy (just giggling and laughing) until after midnight in the next room but one knock and they were apologetic and quiet. Had to be grumpy as had an early start!

The location of the hotel is perfect if you are travelling into London by train. For the price I paid my room did the job. Overall, the hotel was neat and clean with friendly staff. My room was very small but neat. The ensuit was cramp but clean! Would stay there again...

Excellent location for the money. Not in the centre of town but the near by tube station (kings x) will take u anywhere in about 10-15mins.

As the price implies the room we stayed in was small and basic but was clean and cozy. The staff were also very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again

I only stayed one night in this hotel but the biggest compliment I can pay it is that I've booked to stay there again in the near future. The room was small but as the plan was not to spend too much time there that wasn't an issue. It was clean and tidy and the bathroom was what you would expect. For £55 for the night it was excellent value.

The only negative was that the matress was a bit too soft for my liking and so I didn't sleep as well as I could have but that was a minor point.

Easy check in, pleasant staff. Very small rooms, but what do you expect in a budget hotel in a capital city. Tea/coffee facility provided, also hairdryer and TV, bedding immaculately clean and the benefit of an equally clean en suite (with the smallest hand basin I've ever seen - but we had one!). Strange system of stairs A to E, no lifts so if you have mobility problems I would advise you request a room on the ground floor, steep stairs to the rooms. Room keys are left with reception each time you leave but it is open 24 hours so no worries if you're late back. My one concern is lack of fire exits, the fire alarm went off while I was there and everyone had to make their way out through the same corridor to the assembly point at the front of the hotel, luckily it was a false alarm. Room also very warm and as there was a storm in the night, rain came through the window onto the bed so I had no choice but to close it and suffer the heat, great in Winter though I expect. Within east walking distance to Hatton Garden, about 20 mins and if you carry on you can walk through Holborn to St Pauls and then on to the Tower and Tower Bridge.

Room Tip: Hotel in a side street so no road noise front or back of the hotel but ask for a low room if you hav...

I spent 2 nights at the Wardonia hotel. the room was very clean , and although the bathroom was small it had large shower. The staff were friendly and very helpful ,and it is well situated near train stations . And there are plenty of places to eat near by . I would definitely stay there again, when visiting London .

Room Tip: If you have trouble managing stairs, choose a ground floor room as there no lift , I was on 3rd floo...

My single room was compact but well equipped and clean. I would definitely stay again. I chose a top floor room to avoid noise which worked but the stairs are hard work with a large suitcase (no lift).
