Like many others, I found this hotel after scouring the web for a non-sketchy budget hotel in London and booked a double room and a quad room for my family for 6 nights. Though it worked out well for us, if you have high standards and are not willing to be flexible or make compromises, this is not the hotel...

We stayed here for 4 days during a trip across Europe. It took forever to find a suitable place to stay in London as most places are either extremely expensive, or cheap with horrible trip advisor reviews. In this case, the price is right, the location is fine (a 5 minute walk to the West Kensington Tube station which is...

Walking distaance to Kensington West tube station but the neighborhood made us uncomfortable. Seven doors to access our room, three required the key card. Hot beverage provided in the lobby. Not much variety available for meals nearby so eat before you come or bring your own food. Had to ask for bath towels. No hand towels, washcloths or bath mat...

This was our first trip to London, so finding a hotel was quite a feat. The thing that worried us most was cleanliness (not what London hotels are famous for). After searching through zillions of sites we decided on the West Kensington. I must say that the various reviews were quite accurate. We had a quad which was really microscopic...

After searching through dozens of hotels on tripadvisor we settled on this hotel. It was no more or no less of what you could ask of a budget hotel in London. The hotel room and bathroom were incredibly clean +++, which is my first priority. The hotel has a lift, a complimentary 24 hour coffee/tea machine in the foyer, a...

After staying in London budget hotels at least a dozen times, I've come to realize a good value & great hotel when I find one. Most London hotels are small, smelly & just a complete rip-off. But, this hotel is a rare find. 1.) VERY clean. You couldn't have asked for a cleaner hotel. 2.) Great for the budget conscious...

I've book this hotel because was one of the few hotels with family rooms. The accomodation was confortable for 5 dults, with 4 sigle and a double bed. Small bathroom with a tiny sink, bath tube and wc. For was who want to use the hotel just for sleeping I think that is enough. Cleaning and friendly staff. The hotel...

Just returned from staying 4 nights. Got a quad which was 54# per night. Was a double bed and two twin beds that were hung from the wall and lowered when needed (like bunk beds). The beds were OK.

I would like to say few things about this hotel. My sister stayed at this hotel and I made the reservation for her. I was concerned about a couple of bad reviews I saw on this site.
