This hotel is a great price and in a great location. Just be advised that the rooms are a bit small and not air conditioned. The staff and service are exceptional. The rooms are also clean. Exceptional location.

Fantastic location - very close to a lot of attractions in London and underground tubes. Nice English breakfast buffet and kind staff. The hotel facilities were very disappointing in almost every aspect, but it was certainly economical compared to other hotels in the area.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with group
Disliked: Amenities
Wouldn’t recommend. Room was not the same as advertised and looked more like a dorm room. Staff was slow and forgetful in supplying amenities. I got locked in the bathroom and the staff was quick to assist, but did not seem surprised that it happened. They had to break the door with a crowbar to get me out. Nice area around the hotel. However, wouldn’t book again.
