This hotel is amongst the cheapest in london and close to the centre. I didnt have great expectations but was pleasantly surprised. The room was nice and clean. The bed was very narrow, so i almost fell out of it when sleeping. The bathroom is shared with other guests, so therefore is not the cleanest. The staff were great and... More

The hotel wasn't that bad even though you won't be getting to a luxury place. That would cost much more though.. Room was clean and breakfast ok. If you look for a place near the centre but with good prices could be a good choice.

This hotel/B&B is family run and has a great deal of history to it. Looks lovely on the outside and the people who run it are very friendly. Inside I have to say is very 'traditional Irish'! Very traditionally decorated- something I really liked about it. My bedroom was clean and had a lovely chat with the owner the next... More

I would like to warn potential guests that Albany Hotel at 34 Tavistock Place, Bloomsbury, Russell Square, London WC1H 9RE, is a hotel you should avoid. The whole hotel is infested with bed bugs. Staying at the hotel is a health hazard. When I complained to the manageress of this hotel about being bitten constantly at night, she raised her... More

Its a small hotel/bed-n-breakfast run by a nice family. They (staff/family) really help, and accomodate the most they can. The hotel is cheap, realy cheap. It is not as bad as one would expect it to be. The rooms are very small, and the TV is from the 1970's. Bed is not comfortable. No air condition. Reasonable considering the price... More

My sister and I checked into the hotel towards the end of the first week of June. We had problems with the location of a previous hotel at south ealing and decided that residing at a hotel nearer to the city centre would be better. However, this decision would cost us painfully in time to come. Let me begin with... More

Ok, the location is fine. But... don't stay at this place! There were bed bugs in our room! And instead of removing the matrasses, they only used an obscure spray to desinfect the matrass...
