Found the hotel on booking.com as a last minute stop after we had stayed at a the hotel previous thoughts and due to go home but felt we hadn't see enough so decided to extend trip. - coded Check in system confusing but fine. - no lift but it wasn't a bother - room spacious enough with all the basic...

First off let me start by saying it was adequate and did exactly what you would need from a small hotel. Just a couple of issues though. There was a strong smell of sewage that emanated from the en-suite every so often and the shower took an age to get hot. Seriously, turn it on about 5-10 minutes before you...

I was staying here for a 4 course in Covent Garden, for the price, I was pleasantly surprised, the bed was REALLY comfortable and although very small, the room had everything I needed. It's location, a two minute walk from Russel Square tube, is fantastic and there's every sort of shop you can need very close by (Brunswick Centre) -...

Stayed 2 nights. Rooms are small but very clean. Perfect location for Leicester Square. If you just need a room to sleep it's great. Walls are thin & had to put up with a couple having a very loud argument but nothing the hotel can do about that. Plenty of shops pubs & cafes close by.

We read the reviews but gave them chance They gave us different room on top floor Filthy, smelly disgusting! Nobody answered phone , we moved hotel. They kept our money! Not even an apology or move rooms We took photos cos we couldn't believe it. The lower rooms probably better hence some good reviews

Lots of negative reviews on here and I'm glad I didn't read them ( or show my other half!) before I booked it. For central London on a Friday night around Christmas this was great value for money, clean, comfortable, and the locking system worked fine. Don't expect a concierge or any glamour and you won't be too put out,...

There was no receptionist or porter to check me in. There was only one bedside light that didn't work. The tiled floor had a hole in it stuffed with paper then taped. The furniture and curtains were cheap and poor quality. The walls were paper thin. I was woken by the couple in the room next door making a terrifically...

small but clean room, towels not brilliant and dirty windows. View was dreadful overlooking back yard. very steep stairs (we were on 3rd floor). wish I had done a bit more searching for a better place. A key code is needed to enter the building, but I had not received an email containing this until I chased them for it.
