What do you need from a hotel when you visit a large city where you priority is what you find outside the hotel? A bed, a shower, may be a TV. Continental Hotel near Paddington gives you that – and nothing more. What you save on the room you can better spend on extras in the city itself. There are...

I stayed at this hotel with a couple of friends for my friends birthday. The place was cosy and the staff were really great. They shows us a few local places to grab a drink and some good food. The room was good and big and over looked a nice park / green. We were on the second floor so...

We were two in a small room with a double and a twin bed. The room was relatively clean - though very worn. The bathroom/shower requires flexibility to use; it is just plain tiny. The bedding is thin and the 1980s-era small color TV received maybe nine, useless channels. But why are you watching TV if you are visiting London,...

I had to look for a cheap hotel in Central London as friends had to come over from Spain and wanted to be close to me. I made inquiries on the internet and in person, and decided to book them at the continental hotel although the reviews I read were mixed. The hotel is decent and well maintained the room...

Stay away from that hotel! Anything is better. When I stayed there, the walls were covered all over with black mold. I asked for a different room and got one with only a little bit of black mold. The staff was extremely rude. There was no breakfast. When I asked for the breakfast that was supposedly included, one of the...

I stayed here for a couple nights as I was doing a job in town. It's a nice place with nice laugh I didn't have breakfast as I left before it started. Next time I'm in town I'll definition again. Best cheap hotel I have stayed in.

I knew in advance that this place wasn't going to be great considering how much i was paying, but i stayed there 3 nights a week for ten weeks while whirling in London. On three seperate stays i was eaten alive with insects and left with rashes and red blotches all over me. Eventually when a bug crawled up the...

We stayed here last year and the experience still feels like yesterday, quite literally, I still feel the crawling where the weird and very persistent rash was that I got as a token of our stay. On the first night I woke up to a mutantly large rat forcing entry into my handbag for the bag of nuts I had...
