2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel was convenient and staff nice, but the room was dirty, particularly the bathroom and the pastries at breakfast were so stale you could have built a hotel with them. Overall not worth even half what we paid.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This hotel was very conveniently located close to the London Eye, London Dungeon, Imperial War Museum and Waterloo station. Close enough to transportation (subway and bus). Very quiet in the room. Comfortable beds. Clean bathrooms. The only negative would be that the hotel needs to redo the carpets in the hallways and rooms (stains) and train a little better the reception staff (did not have dining recommendations available, had to go on the internet - which we could also do). Cannot comment on the breakfast, we opted to buy breakfast along the river Thames in front of the house of Parliament which was great.

Worst nights sleep I’ve had in a long time- the pillows were awful, lumpy and need to be replaced. No alternative ones in the cupboard like most hotels. Mattress was like sleeping on a rock, and my sons sofa bed had a 3-4 inch gap right down the middle not just the usual joint that you’d find with a sofabed. Customer service not great, emailed ahead to ask for a fan in the room, they replied saying they had air conditioning and ignored the request for a fan. When we arrived we asked again only to be told they had ran out as they had given them to other guests. Great location and easy to find, walkable to lots of places. Overall quite disappointing and wouldn’t stay here again.

Hotel had potential but too many little things took away from the experience. The shower drain was blocked and flooded the bathroom on our first day. Someone came to fix it but it never worked well. TV functions like the channel guide stopped working after a couple of days. The air conditioning unit in the room rattled when operating. Toilet paper was never properly replenished and we had to call down for more. Pillows were worn out and stained. One day the main floor button on the elevator stopped working so we were stuck taking the stairs. For the equivalent of $300 CAD/night these things should never be happening at any hotel. Really too bad because the location is great.
