Stayed for 2 nights 22-24 December. Paid £119 for a twin room with en-suite, which works out £29.75 per person. Cheap! Pre-payment for first night, and on arrival paid remaining by cash.
On arrival, very smooth transaction, and easy check-in. We were given a room on 3rd floor. I already knew from reviews that no lift was provided, but stairs were quite uneven to carry my suitcase.
Pictures are a bit misleading because the room in actuality was a lot smaller than the pictures you see on their website. Room temperature was perfect, warm and toasy. but it got quite cold at one point in night. I was very impressed at how CLEAN the room and bathroom was. Beds were the most comfortable beds I've slept in. Bathroom was basic and shower's water temperature was just right, however a bit slow to drain.
Didnt like the back view. And the floors were incredibly creaky and squeaky. which made me feel awkward to move around. Worse - could hear people moving above, hence creaky ceilings. Its a good job I was out for most of the day. When you go out, you have to leave key with owner and on return just tell them your room number.
Breakfast - is in the basement, not a problem but again, pictures are misleading because this breakfast room was very very small. It had about 3 double tables and 3 single tables as the hotel has 22 rooms. We came a bit later on 2nd night - and it was more busy. Was served by a curteous European woman - who offered the best hot croissants I've had. Breakfast was very basic but was sufficient enough.
Location - great, took me 12 minutes to walk to victoria tube station and about 9 minutes to the coach station. Neighbourhood is lovely, very quiet and I felt safe walking at night with my sister.
Owners - very polite and pleasant. On check-out, they looked after our luggage for whole day whilst we did further sight seeing.
Overall - be prepared to drag your luggage up uneven stairs. Don't expect to be provided with toiletries. The twin room is very small. Learn to live out of your suitcase, although they provide you with a storage cupboard. I may choose another hotel in victoria next time, but I know I won't get a cheap price like this.
Ask for room facing front.
Come for breakfast early, about 08.00.
Make sure you have a map as all...
