What they call Hotel on this site, it's actually a self defined B&B, you can read it on the big sign out of the building (though I didn't really see a breakfast in the morning, I think it was just coffee or tea, but I never stopped to look at it). The place is small but well kept; a big...

I chose to stay one night at this hotel, in early August. It was a little tricky to find my way, but I chose it for the reasonable price.... It is not a very distinguished hotel, but for those who find dorms juvenile and better hotels too expensive this is more than enough. It's bugdet, plain and simple. At first...

The room we stayed in was nice, but Alina Pintilie was the most accommodating service professional we have ever met. We travel all the time and were very impressed with how attentive she was to detail. Our room stayed perfect throughout our stay from clean sheets, towels and not a spec of dirt or dust in our room. It was...

I meant to give a really good review. The location is good, the room was clean and in ok condition and we didn't have any problems. But I had an early morning flight and wanted the reception guy to help me decide how best to get there on time. He was looking in Google maps, so I KNOW he had...

We booked this stay through our US AAA Travel Agent. The booking details required our flight arrival time, so we expected that the room would be available when we arrived at the hotel. We arrived to see a customer being loaded into a real honest British Paddy Wagon! It was disconcerting, but we entered the premises to discover that the...

On arriving at this hotel, we were amazed to be asked for some form of identity as our room was already paid for and we are British with a Kent address. We had not been informed that we needed identity on our confirmation. We had our freedom passes, but were so amazed that we forgot to ask what would have...

Very good standard of room, nice facilities and friendly helpful staff. A decent breakfast would have earned the extra star, but other than that I can't complain. This was a business trip and found the room ideal for working as well as unwinding.

From the moment we called to book at this hotel we were extremely disappointed. The staff were extremely rude on the phone, and when arriving at the hotel the floors on the room were disgusting and dirty. We weren't told any information about checking out. Really disappointing visit.

A good place to stay if you have to work in this region. I had to work at Olympia and this was ideally located. Clean, quiet, close to underground, coffee and tea always with you, Sainsbury a block away. I like it.
