I have never written a review about any of the hotels/hostels Ive stayed at before as I believe, like most others you get what you pay for however in my opinion in this place you certainly do not! I read the previous reviews about the hotel and like the majority of times wasnt put off as I know there are people out there who, shall we say exaggerate slightly and expect 5 star for 2 star prices so decided to book.
The positives- location is excellent! Great access to the tube and 25 euros from the airport. Cleanliness is good although the decor is a little outdated. Price is very reasonable, although I shall come back to that later....
The negatives- The bar in the alleyway next to rooms is ridiculously loud and doesnt shut until 5am. This wouldnt be so bad if you could shut the windows but as no fan is provided this is not an option! Therefore we spent the whole night baking in the rooms with our headphones on and even then there is no chance of sleep. Not a good nights sleep...ANY sleep! Our room also didnt come with a shower or toilet so we had to share a communal one which we had to queue up for in the morning. The staff were all polite although didnt speak any English (of course not their fault but it would have been helpful) so was difficult when asking for directions/requests etc All said for the price we paid I think we'd have been better off staying in a hostel or paying 20 or so euros more to get some basic comforts. I hope this is helpful for you readers and would implore you not to stay under any circumstances. You cannot say you havent been warned!
