We ended up in London and found this gem. Offers a free washer/dryer and breakfast nook. I would avoid purchasing their breakfast as there was not much to it other than jams, velveeta cheese slices and butter. Everytime we visit Europe our credit card info gets stolen which is becoming very annoying. The staff at this hotel are very friendly....

Stayed for a 1 night layover. The location is very local, above a pub which in my opinion is great. Its about a 15-20 minute walk to Tower Bridge. If you enjoy walking and seeing local neighborhoods then it will score points with you. Nearest metro is Elephant & Castle which is about 10-15 minute walk. You can catch a...

It advertises itself as a pub and B&B but having visited the pub I would say it's not the most plush place to visit and it is in the middle of the Aylesbury Estate but have busses pass regularly which is convenient and the decor is more old school pub than a smart establishment. Seems to attract more the poor...

I have read a few of the previous reviews with a sense of amusement, Yes, it's clearly not located off Sloane Square, yes, it's above a local pub. None of these things should be surprising as the place shows that in the pictures. We stayed there for three nights and we were very impressed. Seb the manager is very helpful,...

Stayed for two nights in a twin room with a friend as we wanted to stay in London to do some sightseeing. The weekend that we stayed all the buses were redirected which meant that we ended up in quite an unnerving area late at night, but on our last day the buses started running properly again and the bus...

Very good and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Not far from bus station. Best price-quality ratio in London. Dark drapes in case you want to sleep in the sunny morning. There is a big kitchen with two microwaves, toaster, washing and dryer machines. Also TV, electric kettle and fridge in the room. The window is very big, a long battery under...

I've neven been there, I have to change my travelling plans and had to cancel my reservation 15 days before going. Said they could charge a no show, that would be fair but they charged the four days that i would be staying there. The least i coud do is to put a negative review on them.
