After having read a lot of reviews about the hotel, I was almost terrified about having to stay at the Royal National, London. I was staying there as a teacher with my class of students aged 17-20 (I'm 53). But I would not have had to worry at all! The room and bathroom was clean enough, the sheets were clean...

The Royal National is an immense hotel factory with so many visitors, that it is impossible for the employees to welcome these friendly. So they simply do not do that. The hotel is mainly used by schools for London trips- and for the kids it will be OK and fun, and probably the breakfast is for them too early to...

This hotel is okay if you are on a tight budget but be prepared for a sleepless night. The hotel is used by lots large groups of young travellers from all over the world and seems to be permanently noisy. The rooms are not double glazed so if you are on the main road you hear the noise of traffic...

Stayed at Royal National for 3 nights in February 08 as part of a package we booked through British Airways. Was shocked that British Airways would back this hotel - it was a nightmare! Barely could call it a hotel, it was much more like a hostel. The average guest age was about 21, and we spent the entire night...
