Our visit to london

We weren't expecting such a lovely room and clean surroundings for the price we were paying. everywhere was clean and fresh, towells fluffy and white and beds comfortable.
the breakfast was adequate. it would have been nice to have some meat or cheese for the toast.
it was very noisy but that is the price to pay staying in the city.
i would return to this hotel.

Perfect for a packed weekend getaway

The hotel was located almost in the centre of london near euston station which was just walking distance from the theatres and oxford street. we didn’t need the hotel to be fancy for the fact we had a busy 2 days and literally needed a bed for the night but wanted the security of a hotel rather than a hostel.
it was perfect for what we needed.
they even kept our bags on our final day when we were meant to have checked out so that we could enjoy the day without carrying our bags around.

Don't go if you are planning to sleep anytime between 11 pm until 03:00 am!

Every single night, there were people at the bar downstairs yelling and singing songs and playing drinking games (most of them were part of the contiki tours) the whole night. when you call the staff they don't do anything about it. in fact they tell u that they will see what they can do but watching from the window we didn't see anyone going up to the noisy people. we were not light sleepers but believe it or not nobody can sleep in that amount of noise. so unless u are not planning on sleeping all night don't even think about going there. you will regret it, guaranteed!

A weekend in london

Clean hotel, friendly staff excellent location for getting around sightseeing, close to tube station and a bus route right outside the hotel what more could you ask for. there was a queue for breakfast on the saturday, however it is a big hotel and it was full, to us this was not a problem you just have to be patient. there is a great choice available for breakfast. the meals in the restaurant although a small choice are very good value for money. overall a pleasant stay good value for money and we will definitely stay again

Old but comfy

At first glance the lobby is nice, the staff is friendly and helpful. we did notice a lot of litter around the floor of the bar area. the hotel is old and needs a facelift but the rooms are very clean. there is no air conditioning and you won't get the normal items in your room of hair dryers, shampoo and washcloths so plan appropriately. we did enjoy our stay though and would go back again.
