We arrived at the hotel at 8pm after attending an all day music festival to be told that our reservation had been cancelled because our payment had not gone through. We had reserved the room on our credit card which unfortunately got stolen during the trip so we had to cancel the card. We had thought that the room was...

We stayed on two separate occasions. The first time the bedroom was impossibly small for a double bed but the ensuite bathroom was good. On the second visit the room was a larger one but the ensuite bathroom was miniscule! On both occasions we found the facilities clean and adequate, the beds comfortable and the noise levels reasonably low. There...

This is NOT a hotel it is a B&B so I will not rate it as a hotel. Booked a double room and was given a room you couldn't swing a mouse in never mind a cat. The smell of raw sewage from the bathroom was stomach turning and if you could stick it long enough to have a shower...

This trip was booked for me and my girlfriend. I was about to go away to Fiji on an expedition for 3 months as a volunteer research assistant - I had to attend a briefing in London. We arrived at hotel to be told there were no doubles available and they took us to the room which was basically a...

Clean hotel in ok area, close to tube stations. Service at reception slow (receptionist was new though I think...) and key cards had a habit of not working (not good when no-one is at reception!). Room small but clean, and perfectly ok for a nights sleep.

This is the fourth time I have travelled to London, and all four times I stayed in a different hotel. I was very disappointed with this particular hotel. One of the main reasons I chose this hotel was the fact it had WiFI but the Wifi connection was horrendous. I had to purchase a pay-to-go broadband modem in the end...

We had a room for 5 adults and location wise it is OK about 5-10 minutes walk from the tube station. There is no breakfast included but there is a free coffee machine downstairs but the guests. The rooms are clean and new but our sink was partially clogged and the bath area had no shower curtain which made it...

Hotel/guest house was near to underground station, clean, recently refurbished. Staff very helpful & friendly. Rooms small but adequate. Hotel is ideal if you are just looking for a clean bed for the night. Area initially intimidating, but incurred no problems walking around with a young child, though very noisy on Saturday night but then it is London. Overall I...

I needed a place to stay for one night in London. Not looking for anything luxurious, finding somewhere cheap was my main goal, hence I stumbled upon the Kensington West (under the confusing guise of the "Olympia Rooms" - but is the same place!) on laterooms. Trust me - for 45GBP (double room) you will not find anywhere as clean,...
