The Church Street Hotel is like no other in London. The eclectic décor - think Mexican day of the dead meets an Almodovar film set - the windy corridors and individual rooms always provide a smile. Its great to stay somewhere in London which isn't a cookie cutter business hotel or a cheap, grim corporate bed for night. Its a while since I've been here and there seems to have been an expansion - the next door Angels and Gypsies restaurant was full on Saturday night but we got a table in the downstairs Communion Bar serving the exact same food which was great - inventive Tapas (rabbit, albondigas soup). Three real standouts - the crackers on the cheese board, the Gambas and the mushroooms. Fantastic. Saturday nights also has live music from T-Bone Jerome and his backing band - a great funky/jazz ensemble - very tight and fabulous in a bad taste replica of a chapel. Excellent. After dancing the night away, lurched upstairs to comfy bed, quiet room (despite being at the front of the hotel facing the road). l'Occitaine toiletries and complimentary green and black's chocoloate and chilli relish. It really is different! Staff are friendly and informative. Highly recommended for a funky stay in increasingly funky Camberwell Green.

We stayed at the CST for one night and have decided it was ok. Good things: the complimentary bits are nice, hotel looks nice from outside, room size good. Bad things: lumpy uncomfortable pillows, shower could do with an update, so many stairs and most importantly, no drinks-making facilities in the room. This makes no sense to me, as first thing when we woke up all we wanted was a cup of tea in our bed clothes. The hotel should provision for both in-room and lounge-area drinks. The cost seemed pricey too.

Also 2 further things that have resulted in this ranking. One is that when we left for the night reception asked that we leave the key with them.... I have never heard of that before! Seemed very odd! The other is that the staff could be more willing in terms of offering to phone a taxi for you... They weren't particularly hot on customer service.

I stayed at the CST last night and it was fantastic. Superb service, great food (all sourced from quality producers), great atmosphere and lovely rooms with funky decor. The complimentary hot sauce and Green and Blacks chocolate is a fab touch. The L'Occitaine toiletries demonstrate the understated quality of the place.There is a relaxed atmosphere, which makes a pleasant change, and the honesty bar is an automatic winner with me! I have stayed in many hotels, for work, and this is my new number one which I will selfishly keep a secret! I was upgraded to a deluxe room which came as a lovely surprise. If you like something a bit different then you can't go wrong with the CST. I will be returning very soon.

We arrived late for a brief one night stay. Our daughter was in labor as we arrived from US and wanted us out of the house! (Baby born while we slept.) In spite of the hour (11pm), the clerk was cheerful and helpful. The room was large and had wifi (since our UK phones were not active, this was very helpful to find out that the baby had been born so we could go back to our daughter's house!). The bed was solid. The bathroom was huge! We did not use the tub/shower but everything was clean and the towels were soft and fluffy. Each room is different and the decorations are different in each one. The room had everything one expects from a hotel and more! The next morning, we ate breakfast at the restuarant downstairs which had a nice cold breakfast for 5 pounds and hot breakfast for 9 pounds. We were able to top up our phones and take the bus home rested and refreshed.

Room Tip: Ask the desk clerk.

Camberwell Green is over a mile from the nearest tube station, but there are frequent buses from just outside the hotel to the centre of London. The area is a bit downmarket, but the hotel and the attached restaurant are absolutely fine.
I had a single room, in which the bed was adequate and the walls were a bit too thin. I also had to share a bathroom, which will be a problem on some occasions, but wasn't this time. Both the bathroom and the bedroom were spotlessly clean. The room was on the small side, but adequate.
You get a bottle of water, a bar of Green & Black's chocolate and a little pot of hot sauce??? as a welcome gift, and some good quality toiletries are provided, along with a proper full sized bath towel. There is a communal 24 hour lounge area with free tea and coffee and an honesty bar providing a good range of high quality (and pretty expensive) booze. There is also free WiFi. There is an extensive DVD library, with players in every bedroom.
Meals are taken in the attached Angels & Gypsies tapas restaurant. The continental breakfast was excellent - proper freshly squeezed juice and smoothies, delicious bread and cakes.

I hunted on the internet for over an hour for hotels in London within my price range, and this one was significantly cheaper than anything comparable, no doubt because of the unfashionable location. I recommend the hotel and would stay there again, hoping that that I wasn't next door to someone noisy...

Room Tip: Be aware that some rooms have a shared bathroom (which is very clean, but involves a hop across the corridor).
