“Style over substance”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2011

If you like - or are not bothered by - a very small room (I note another comment that refers to 'spacious rooms' - ours definitely otherwise) and a revolting excess of tawdry religous imagery, and if you don't mind noise from downstairs until the early hours, then maybe this is the place for you. Certainly it is far from the standard chain hotel and, judging from the comments book, quite a lot of people like it. (Staff very friendly and the best towels I've experienced for a long time.) Breakfast was bizarre. The only eggs available are boiled (e.g. no facilities for scrambling) and are kept warm in an odd device that turns the yolk leathery while leaving the white undercooked. If you want black coffee you have to ask for it specially - 'coffee' is assumed to mean milky.

Loved staying at this hotel. Lovely staff and clean and spacious rooms. Loved the selection of complimentary teas available and the choclate and hot sauce left in the rooms. Breakfast was lovely, with a good number of options. The hotel was ideally located near elephant and castle and I would stay there again if I needed to be in that area of london. However, if I were staying in London as a tourist I probably would not stay there as it is slightly farther out than I would like (at the same time there are regular buses which run from camberwell green to the city centre).

I decided on Church Street hotel in the first instance for its relatively close proximity to Brixton Academy. The phographs of the hotel looked interesting and quirky (in a good way) and were a good representation of the room we stayed in. The room was clean and comfortable. I particularly liked the bright coloured tiled bathroom and recessed alcoves. The staff were very friendly and the continental breakfast included organic cereals, delicious local jams and pastries and a vast range of teas. A nice touch was an extensive DVD library that all guests had access to if desired. Would definitely return to this hotel as it was a great base, particularly for Brixton Academy. A unique find.

Not worth bothering with the Mexican theme when you get a much quieter more comfortable
Night in a chain. Sorry but it was not a great night
