“Cheap, clean, & conveniently located”
This was the cheapest hotel I could find in London. It was a very reasonable walk to Victoria Station (though, we took a taxi before we got the lay of the land and it was 5 pounds well-spent considering the luggage). The younger gentleman on the staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and en suite as promised. It was small, but the beds were larger than twin (not terribly comfortable.) There was tea service and a TV in the room, though I never turned it on. For the money, it was exactly what you need if you want to be near central London. Very satisfied. Oh- Breakfast. At 2.5gbp, it was cheap, but just continental. If you want something substantial, go out.
“Fine for budget”
I had read the reviews from other travelers about this hotel so I had very low expectations. The location was great but note that it is much closer to the Plimico Tube Station than Victoria. Since I recently had knee surgery I asked if I could have a room on the ground floor which they were able to give me. The room was extremely simple but clean. Make sure to bring soap as they don't supply but I did get two towels (which other reviewers said they only got one). The people at the desk were very nice and always were exactly to the second to give us our wake up knock. Overall, it was much better than I expected. I didn't take the breakfast (per other reviews) but there are lots of places to get food nearby. For the price, convenience and location it was perfect for us.
“An Inexpensive Place to Stay”
Our room was very small and the shower did spray all over and make the floor wet. However, our window did open. We were on the first floor, the included breakfast was cereal and juice which was fine with me. I did not expect luxury I chose for price. the host was courteous. The location was good and above all it was inexpensive and quiet. I would stay there again if price were my main concern.
This hotel was nice for the budget traveller because of its close proximity to many of the main tourist sites and also because of the friendly staff. However, you need to be prepared to have problems with your room. Our toilet didnt flush, we couldnt use our shower (we had to use one on the next floor up, in the hallway), there were beer bottles and cigarettes on the balcony and one of the armoire drawers was missing the bottom. It was a quirky hotel, but only fun if you are willing to work with the numerous minor complications.
“Just as a rest stop”
Yes it was run down, but for the price you can't beat it. The worst thing was no phone. The host was very gracious and accomadating. We over slept and missed breakfast and he opened up the breakfast room for us so we could eat something before we left. If you are looking for luxury this is definetely not the place to go. If you are just looking for somewhere to rest you head while you enjoy London then its ok. The room was very basic. I almost wonder if the pictures are actually of a real room in there. Also, excellent location to walk around. good luck.
“Go only if you don't care about cleanliness”
I was appalled at the state of the room I was given. I had to close my eyes while in the bathroom because it was so dirty. The room itself was also quite a disaster area. I wasn't too sure about the sheets and blankets they had. It is a youth hostel. You get what you pay for. The only good point about the place, was the people who worked there. I had an early train to catch and no watch, the owner personally came up and knocked on the door to wake me up. Very nice of him.
Hotel did not clean room during entire stay. They only gave fresh towels every 3 days and breakfast was not included. The shower had no hot water until our second day there. Only good thing was that it was in a wondeful location in London.
“You get what you pay for”
Think of this hotel as a hostel with private rooms and private bathrooms. For the location, the price isnt' bad, but if I ever return to London I'd rather stay in a hotel outside of central London and use the wonderful public transportation system within the city. The staff is nice and friendly, but don't expect any help getting a taxi or carrying your luggage. Also, the rooms were dirty, the double bed was two twins pushed together, the shower was basically a hole in the bathroom floor with a curtain on one side. There were no telephones in the rooms. It was just a place to sleep after a day of sightseeing, which I honestly didn't mind too much but my wife wasnt.
“It was ok at first”
Once we got to the hotel we had to be transfered to another one across the street because all of the rooms were filled even though we had a reservation. The staff was very nice, I will give them that. This hotel would have been ok for about 3 nights but we were there for 9 and the cramped space with no air conditioning was a bit much. Also since we were in London, everything basically closes at 5 so you will end up spending more time in your hotel than you think.
For the price it was alright. It was a bit small for a triple. If all you need is a place to sleep it worked out fine. Would go back if I was on a tight budget for a trip.
