Me and my sister booked this hotel for our weekend break to London. We got there and took one look at the rooms and left. We ended up cancelling our reservation because of the very low standards. The Bathroom was grimy, there was what seemed to be a metal scrap yard on view outside of the window, the curtains were...

I stay here in room 37 Ist floor in April 2009. The staffs' English was not 100% but were very friendly and helpful. The room was a bit of a surprise it was very old probably 80s decor in real need of TLC, but spotlessly clean. The sheets for example were sparkling white. See my photos for a better idea....

For the rate of about 55 pounds a night for a private bath we were not expecting much. However, the toilet barely worked, forcing us to use the one downstairs. The floor was dirty and there were some disgusting stains on the sheets. It was not possible to adjust the heat in the rooms and the front desk would not...

We weren´t expecting much for the price but nothing could have prepared us for what met our eyes. To begin with the manager wanted us to pay in cash even though it said clearly online that they accepted creditcards! We had to ask for towels and our TV was broken.
