Let's start with the positives- the bed was a clean , small double bed. It was ok just to get our heads down after the theatre. The bathroom was pretty clean. There was tea and coffee, hair drier and iron. The rooms were tiled, so easy enough to keep clean, however,combined with the stud partitioned walls it was very noisy....

The room is small and disgusting, my bed is on wheels and moves every time I sit on it, cracks on the walls, radiator hanging off, smallest bathroom ever, view of an old topless man smoking out his window. The room and the bathroom are smaller than my bedroom at home. I would hate for anyone to stay here. It's...

Didn't even make it inside the hotel as, based on inconsistent information provided by Expedia and the hotel website, they are open a total of SIX hours (if that) of the day. Yes, the hotel hours of operation, shared only on the door of the hotel (printed on a piece of paper with incorrect English and written in adjustments) are...

Where to start. Firstly they didn't respond to an email query I had about leaving bags, ignored my first call and only text after my second call. They took the payment early (not on arrival). The room was dirty and damp, had cobwebs everywhere, the window didn't open, the room was in the basement, fire doors left open everywhere and...

Stayed here as a late Valentine's Day treat. Room size was impressive. But that's about it. The bed was the loudest bed ever! Just sitting on it made it creak. There were two TVs in the room which was nice. Bathroom was nice and clean. Modern rooms but very narrow stairs to get to the room. We stayed downstairs so...

Room B may be big but that did not make up in any way for the state of the room. It was dirty, cobwebs on every wall, damp in the corner, part of a condom packet behind the sofa bed, dust in the cupboard, grime on the iPod dock, scum and mould in the bathroom. We asked to be moved...

I came here with my daughter (who bless her, had booked this accommodation for us herself for an overnight stay before a uni interview). Like other visitors, I had briefly googled it to check what she had booked, and noticed it was 4-star rated so felt reassured. On arriving, it is quite clear that this is NOT the case and...

I stayed in the hotel for three nights. The room was even big for London standards, it was modernly decorated and the bathroom was also quite good. There was a water heater and a big window looking at the inner court. The only pitfall for me was that it was located 10 minutes from the tube station, as I expected...

Tiny room. Pillows smelled weird. No double glazing on the windows. Busy road. We could hear every sound from the street below as if our windows were open. Toilet seat was broken. Shower took ages before heating up. Kettle looked like it needed a scrub so didn't touch the tea/coffee. Just a bad experience altogether. Will not be going back.
