3/5 Okay

Traveled with family and small children, Traveled with family
Liked: Staff & service
Most staff brilliant - very friendly to me and my young child. A few less helpful. Requested a bed change or some sheets to change it myself when my child peed the bed - asked two different staff - but wasn’t done. Booked a family twin room but got a double - not enough room for us. Ideal for a crash space for a night away, but didn’t work for me bringing a child for 4 days. All that said, friendly staff.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I’m not sure who is giving this property 5 stars, but this street and property are extremely run down. Everything is stained and scuffed. The carpet has what looks like old gum worn down into it. Only plus was that the staff were nice. Bathroom was clean, but again, worn down.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Great location (five minutes from Kings X). Really good internet speed (genuinely surprised....nearly as good as home). Guy on reception was great; friendly and efficient. Room is good size, bed is comfortable. Only thing I'd advise (which in fairness is fairly common in London hotels) is pack some earplugs. The walls aren't the thickest and some of those on my floor felt that chatting in the hall at 4am was a good idea. Not the hotels fault but a useful FYI for you.
