Our room was quite small for 4 people.. and the bathroom was tiny. It was difficult to use it. Breakfast was ok - English breakfast, cereal or toasts and jam. Location is quite good, very close to British museum.

I stayed at this hotel for a three days work stay in London. The price is the main reason to select this place. My room was tiny. I had to close the suitcase to access the bathroom or open the door. The quality of the room equipment is also a bit shabby. Overall, I think it is a quite expensive...

Stayed here midweek for a works Xmas do. Good value? Considering it's bang in the centre of London and it's the Christmas run up, yes I would say excellent value. Clean? Yes, we arrived early and were able to drop bags off and there was an army of cleaners in the hotel. Clean sheets and towels. Bathroom was spotless, if...

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Reception was downstairs(no where near the front door). So my first impression, was how do I get in here. Once I was finally shown my room, there was a strange stale smell. Specially coming from the bathroom. The towels/bed sheets and carpet had a damp smell. The room was outdated and a lick...

Stayed for one night. Locked out of room for 30 minutes as they couldn't unlock the bedroom door!

We arrived at the hotel. Check in is down a flight of stairs. We were shown to our room in the basement it was compact. It was nicely decorated and the bathroom a good size compared to the small bed room which me and my daughter has to walk sideways to get round. The door lock was just a tale...

The Garth is so not worth going to. Good points - good location for public transportation, and the rooms were clean enough. Bad points - American baseball: 3 strikes and you're out. Beyond location, we (2 couples) rented 2 rooms for 2 nights arriving and 2 nights leaving 10 days later because The Garth not only advertised it had a...

The location was fairly central and close to a few Underground stops. Room was nice enough, but the bathroom was very small. Could barely close the door when inside. The person working was nice, but was supposed to call me a taxi for 5:00am, which apparently he didn't (at least none showed up).
