Went there for Christmans, and it couldn't be better! The hotel is near from a bus station, that connects directly with Angel Station, where you can go to anywhere in London. The Staff is prepared to help guests for questions about the city, tips and others aspects. The room was warm and very confortable, even during the winter. The neighbourhood... More

I have just returned from a 1 night business stay with a colleague. The location was perfect for us as we were training in Berners Road. The hotel is fine for this purpose, rooms were clean, (we stayed in rooms 101/102), lovely bathjroom, room nice and bright, with Indian feel. This is not a luxury hotel (hence the price), or...

Not really as marketed. It's basically a budget hotel transported out of somewhere like Victoria or Euston and plonked in Highbury. Friendly enough but you can't call it boutique. I'd like to see by what definition it is that. Not all that easy to sleep either; quite noisy.

Never stay here. It's awful value for money and you'll be angry for ever! Bad service, awful room and bad food. The location was good because of the wedding but that's it. My husband is still spitting feathers...
