“Believe the bad reviews!”
Reviewed 27 November 2011

The bad reviews had got me ready for this in advance, but actually getting there and into my room was beyond anything i could have prepared for. No windows, black mould on the walls, blocked sink, constantly dripping shower, stinking room/corridors, incompetent staff. Stayed for two nights, did not bath or shower as i just could not bring myself to get in! The sink was unblocked, they covered the mould with a curtain! and refused to reduce the price............its not cheap in any event. On the plus side; 1 Its central; 2 Breakfast is ok....just; and 3 On Sunday i went home.

Room Tip: Try and find one without mould!

My break was booked through National holidays and this is the worst hotel I have every stayed in.Our room 529 had mould on the window sills, cracked window, rust on the celing in the bathroom, bare wires out of switches, dripping taps.A faulty telly. Torn wallpaper, and the curtains looked like they had seen a washing machine.
The swimming pool we did not use as the tiles on the floor were dirty.The fitness room you needed a peg for your nose as it smelt of sweat.
The evening meal was hot and adequate .And breakfast was hot and plenty of choice.
The whole hotel dated wants a totally redecorating and new furniture.
I will NOT be staying here again.

I think the hotel is in a great location as i stayed here a few times with my only reason to rest my head after work or a night out and for prices around £29p/n i would much rather pay that than £129p/n!

I think the food is terrible as when i stayed there i dint feel too well afterwards and this is on numerous occasions!

Stopped at this "hotel" (if you want to call it that...) Fri - Sun. Refused the first room as it had no window, the bathroom stunk of urine & the ceiling had black mould caked all over it. The replacement room at least had windows, although filthy. The tube had gone on the CRT tv, dripping bath tap, loose wires coming out of a socket, wallpaper peeling off...need I go on??

The only slight positives - food adequate & bed fairly comfortable. This won't, however stop me from booking a Premier Inn or a Travelodge next time at a fraction of the price.

it really is in a great spot, oldham street is on your doorstep and we walked back from oxford street at night in 30 mins or so. and we did get an early deal, which meant it was cheap, although non refundable. the hotel itself was fairly grim, a room without windows, that was really overheated meant it was not a comfortable night. even if i was wanting to be in the area and to save my pennies, i cant imagine what would make me pick sasha's again.

Where can I start about this miserable excuse for a hotel. I'll start with the gubby exterior that leads on to tired lifts that haven't been refitted (or serviced by the noises) in a very long time. This is an omen for what is to come when you get to your room!!!

So you arrive at your room, the first thing you are greeted by is a massive stain on the carpet. Upon looking further you notice graffiti on the wall, stains on the chairs, stains on the lamp, mould in the bathroom and wires hanging out the lamp.

As if the room wasn't bad enough it enjoyed a nice view of the cooler/aircon system vents on the roof.

I can't express just how minging this place is, so I'll let the pictures do the talking. If I had one thing to say it would simply be "don't do it"

Room Tip: Go to another hotel, simples!
