Everything is just awful. I won't recommend this place with this place. Besides the breakfast is good, the bed the toilet and the place is old small and not clean feels bad and dirty and it had me a worse moment and terrible memory in staying this place.

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...

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...
