Arrived in the evening, very dark and uninviting. Reception not very welcoming. Room was in the basement, very noisy down there. Fire escape out the window was blocked, room was like something out of a horror film, TV didn't work. For the price and location though it's what you would sort of expect. Saving grace was th bed was actually comfortable and sheets very clean. Got a good night's sleep and that's all we needed it for.
Great location for the pice we paid , the room coul barely fit 3 beds , but they placed 2 single beds plus 2 very uncomfortable beds , the room need a refurbishment same the carpet, if u want early check in u need to pay 20£ for the wifi is an extra 5£ wooowww
Had to book this last minute as my airbnb cancelled without explanation. Both price (£100 for a triple room) and location were excellent. Right near all shops, tube station etc, and also a very short walk to Freddie Mercury's old house which we did.
Other than that, it really is quite poor. Receptionist wasnt there, so we had to wait for 5 minutes. We arrived at 12, only to be told check in wasnt until 2pm which is fair enough. Twice I was told the room is ready, for £20 I can let you in now if you like, but I didnt want to pay an extra £10 an hour. Asked him if I could leave my bag, he took it off me and charged me £5. Never ever been charged for this "service".
Room itself wasnt great. It was small and had a tv. Beds were comfortable. The double bed didnt go all the way to the wall because the radiator was in the way, meaning you were constantly losing your pillows down the back. The bathroom absolutely stunk due to the vast amount of mould on the ceiling. Shower was fine, handle was hanging off.
I wouldnt stay again unless I was desperate.
Once we read experiences of other guests, we have to agree with most of information. So first of all - staff was helpful and smiling, whatever we needed, and they were able to help, they were more than happy to help, no complaints here. Slightly worse was quality of accomodation. Noisy fridge, mold in the bathroom and noise outside also (the street was under the reconstruction - nothing to do with this hotel, certainly). We got room in the basement, so the noise was quite big, also this hotel has laundy carts parked right in front of this room, so you can imagine the noise once the laundry is louded to the truck. Furnishing remembers better times decades ago, but the housekeeping was daily cleaning and we had the hotel just for sleeping, so it was ok at least for the awesome location (the subway is few blocks away, main street with all shops, pubs, etc. is fust a few meters away), which has pleased us. So generaly speaking - if you look for any kind of comfort, go elsewhere, if you need cheaper room to sleep in, you can consider this hotel as an option. One thing is for sure - next time i will ask for a room on some upper floor, not in basement, once i would decide to go there again.
My daughter & I arrived in/around 10 p.m. after an early 3.30 a.m. start, 7 a.m. flight & 3 engagements in London. Room was barely bigger than the double bed &the furniture was tired.
I suggested that my daughter keet her socks on - the carpet has seen a lot of traffic.
The bedding & towels were pristine. I was too tired to check the matress (having read previous reviews).
The bathroom was clean but cramped. The shower stall was a good size.
At the price we paid I didn't expect toiletries. I wasn't disappointed ;)
No air con. Room very warm. Didn't dare to chance leaving our window open as adjoining wall stopped at window.
Rear room. Quiet.
Great nights sleep.
"Thank-you madam " on ch. husband had me second guessing my decision after having read reviews & I tried to cancel. I had chosen a non-refundable option.
I'm glad that we stayed here.
It served our purpose very well.
We didn't eat dhere, it wasn't in our price.
DON'T stay here if you expect luxury.
Ideal for a base only. I felt safe.
5 mins from tube & load of shops and eating options.
In our 2 days in London I noticed that this tube station is a change -over station to lots of different lines/locations.
