Our room stank of cigarettes. The staff were not helpful and unfriendly. The smoke alarm was covered with a plastic bag. The beds were slightly uncomfortably at best. The tablecloths in the dining room were yellowed & frayed. We payed a lot of money for this as it was conveniently located for the purpose of our visit. I will never...

Do not book this hotel. Filthy, horrible. There are no redeeming features. I spent 3 hrs looking for any other hotel under £200 but there isn't one so roughing it. I don't believe it has ever been cleaned. Dirty carpet, dirty bedside table, cobwebs, dust, dirt.

Despite being greeted by a really helpful an lovely staff member, the rooms were unsettlingly dusty and dirty. There were no proper sheets leaving me waking up on a bare mattress. Wifi is £2.50 per day per device. Good location but not worth it.

I stayed here due to having difficulty in finding a cheapish hotel at short notice and chose this particular place as a colleague recommended it. All I can say is she obviously didn't get allocated a basement room! I'm sure the larger rooms upstairs are very pleasant but the hotel owner would benefit from closing the basement level for a...

I was basically there for just one night as a place to lay my head and chose it because of its location near all the clubs and bars of central London. I didn't like that you had to constantly leave your key into reception. The room was small but wasn't bothered as it was a puffy pillow so could sleep...

We were having trouble finding a hotel where our teen age son could stay with us in one room. This was listed in Fodor's travel guide so w assumed it was ok. It was a twisty narrow staircase to third floor, with no fire escape. Three twin beds in one room. Only one of us could open our suitcase at...

Bearing in mind a lot of London Hotels in Theatre District are around £250.00 + for a double room to pay £139.00 you get what you pay for. We stayed in a room with 1 double and 1 single bed, 2 mirrors that were actually filthy and a tiny Bathroom/Shower which was about the size of a standard shower cubicle....
