When you first arrive, you ask yourself why anyone would put a hotel on this road? The area is terrible. My initial view of the hotel itself was good. The room was clean and there is a large TV with all the freeview channels. However, when you look closely around the room, it has obviously been built on the cheap. The bathroom door didn’t close (so wouldn’t lock), wires hung down under the sink, the shower was held to the wall by sellotape, the shower tray was leaving the wall, skirting board broken, holes in walls etc. The corridors have cheap wooden floors so you hear everyone walking about and leaving early in a morning. To say this is a fairly new hotel, it is in need of a big renovation. All the staff are Indian and were polite towards me - no problems.
The room was on the 3rd floor, I asked for a quiet room and was given a room near the rear - very glad I did - Old Kent Road is just a constant stream of sirens from emergency vehicles and very busy traffic. Nearby is a Tesco, cash machines and lots and lots of takeaways. It is a 15 min walk to Elephant & Castle tube station, but if you get a 21 bus from outside hotel, it is about 10 - 15 mins to London Bridge.
I didn't have the breakfast at £10 - better to get one from somewhere else and save money.
Overall, a half decent hotel in the middle of a dump, but a short journey to Central London.
