            friendly staff and nice pub downstairs. bathroom kinda clean. cheap.

            never seen a room that dirty, hairs from previous guests in the bed and funny smell. we were expecting a "real English breakfast" but it was really poor.

          • Couple
            2.8

            There wasn't anything we liked about the hotel. The showers weren't working, the meals were 'freshly microwaved', even to the point of still being in the form of the microwave bowls they had previously frozen the food in. We booked up for two nights but left after the first one, desgusted. The hotel is above a pub who had loud karaoke on until the early hours but because it was so out of the way of anything else we had to stay for the first night. We soon went. The 'full english breakfast' was a half spoon of tesco value beans, a chewy piece of bacon and a microwaved poached egg.

            the nice pub at the ground floor , the possibility to return in the room all trought the nigth

            position is a little far from the city center,and in 4 days the room never been cleaned. sorry for my english

            The pub downstairs was OK

            Heating in the bathrooms and halls despite the good weather. probably to avoid spreading mold. Mold on the toilet paper and on the bedclothes. Smelly fridge, leaking tap for 5 days - nobody cares. When there was a lady serving breakfast food was Ok, but during the weekend ther was a guy who was serving outdated butter and milk.

            Very small room, almost impossible to move.

          • Single

            The reception lady was friendly and helpful. Although the bedroom quality leaves much to be desired, I could sleep well. There was silence almost all night, even though the hotel reception is really a bar. Sometimes I could hear people going to the shared bathroom in the night, but that was it. I had a good night sleep. And the neighbourhood is very peaceful too. It's a residential area, with very few traffic.

            It's really a good hotel for backpackers and people looking for a cheap place to stay, like I was. Just a quiet bed for sleeping and a shower in the morning.The tv had no cable to connect it to the antenna, there was a broken table lamp, inside a drawer, which wasn't removed after someone before broke it and hide it. There were some mugs over the refrigerator in the room, with some spoons, to make coffee, but they had stains on them. I had to wash them and boil them, before I could use them... The shared bathroom shower really could use a lot of bleach to remove the fungi at the bottom. Take waterproof slippers with you!

            Relatively easy to get in London if you didn't find catching two trains and walking 15mins

            Unclean small room, bathrooms and showers were kept in a poor state. No sink in mens bathroom. Rooms kept too hot, heating left on when days were above 25'C. Noise from pub below in early hours of the morning made sleeping difficult.Breakfast was sloppy, and unhealthly. No choice of cereal, fruit or non greasy food. Breakfast too short, from 7.30 til 8.30.

            Cheap, clean accomodation close to Central London.

            Lots of squeaky doors.

            It suited its purpose.

            Shower was a bit weak and tricky.

            Free and easy. Value for money. Helpful staff.

            distance from transport into London

            i like it becouse hotel was in city center

            room was desgastine very old building we cant close the window smelling offol

          • Single
            2.8

            quite quietly,

            The dowtown was a long way away, don't go out after 10pm very dangerously.

          • Single
            5.8

            The people were friendly. The accomodations felt more like camping indoors, which made me realize the value of what I already had.

            One thing would be that there were no offers of servicing the room, even if it were at an additional cost. And, there were visible signs of wear and tear to the room. Some aesthetic details could be taken care of.

          • Couple
            7.4

            the hotel was very nice and clean...the staff was kind and helpfull but the hotel is quite distant from the centre of london...you have to walk to arrive to the overground station and then 20 minutes to arrive in liverpool station where you can take the underground. the hotel close at 11 p.m. so you have the key to enter in but the overeground close at midnight so you can't be later the night! the rapport between the price and the quality is excellent...english breakfast and billiard and pub at the gound floor

          • Single
            4.6

            Awfully traditional British, for good or bad.

            Wi-fi was indicated. It did not work, to nobody's surprise. This hotel should not advertise itself as wi-fi-equipped.
