Stayed here for work. Reasonably priced and in a fairly good location. They stored my suitcase all day with no charge as was too early to check in. Not far from the tube station so quite good location. Walking distance to the Royal Albert Hall (25 mins). Had a fantastic and new bathroom in my room wth rainshower. Room itself was Ok. Tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryer etc. TV was very small, the twin Room beds were very narrow. Just about wider than a full grown man so would not be any good if you wanted some more space. Had a room on 5th floor and lift access was available. All in all for the cost was OK.
Lets start with the good part...Excellent location. Helping & Courteous staff.Nothing more than that. Yes one more, this hotel provided me my first ever bed in London.Well a hotel & its services should & must go much & much & much more beyond these 3 points to excel.But sadly it was not.First of all the location of room- which was at the farthest end of very narrow n dark corridor which was kind of scary. Secondly, room was so tiny (TINY) that it ended before it started. Hardly any place to move or even to keep luggage. Forget AC not even a fan that too when it was hot & humid in London on 17th, 18th & 19th of june 2017 when we stayed here. We requested for upgrade which they agreed on an equivalent price meaning simply double.With no option, Alas we settled for this only after been given table fan.Breakfast was below average.In all it was a bad experience.
1. No wifi in rooms- only in ground floor reception.2. When you request twin beds, you get a double.3. Poor breakfast- mostly tinned food and poorly cooked.4. Charge £5 per hour to leave a bag at reception if you have a late flight.5. Staff don't know local area so unhelpful in even being able to say where a local supermarket is etc6. Tiny room with no air-con7. Location pretty good, but certainly doesn't make up for the inadequacies.
Budget accomodation in London ... Good location for London trip. Walking distance to Gloucester Road tube station and easy access to city centre.Friendly staff.But as most budget hotels rather noisy (well it's sort of in the middle of London ... so quite expected ...), rooms are tiny. Bathroom and room were clean which after all is the most important thing. The bed was a disaster ... mattress needs replacing ...Breakfast ... well to be honest ... rather grab a croissant and a coffee somewhere else ...We were aware what to expect, so no surprises ... not our first time in a London budget accomodation so it was ok ... didn't spend any time at the hotel apart from sleeping there.
I have just returned from a 4 night stay in this hotel and I have mixed feelings about it. On the plus side, it's in a great location with a good selection of restaurants nearby and 2 underground stations (Gloucester Road and Earls Court) both just a short walk away. Also, our room (deluxe double) was clean and the bathroom, while small was perfectly adequate. The shower was fantastic with great water pressure. However, there were a few things with the room that I found really annoying and they could so easily have been fixed. First of all, there was very little space to hang/store our clothes. There was no proper wardrobe and instead a small rail over a shelf where the tea/coffee making facilities were. We only had 4 coat hangers between us and nowhere else to store clothes (i.e. no drawers). I moved the tea/coffee making tray to the floor where there was a socket as there was nowhere else to put it. I couldn't have used it where it had originally been anyway as there was no socket there and even if there had been, I wasn't going to boil a kettle underneath my clothes! While the room wasn't large, there was actually space for an additional shelf or two, which would have been a great benefit. We had a Nespresso machine in our room, which initially I thought was great but the capsules for it weren't routinely replenished by housekeeping and it just took up much need shelf space. We were also provided with a smart phone(something called a 'Handy' which we could have taken out and about with us. I didn't really check this out as I just used my own mobile phone. One other downside of the room was it was extremely hot and we didn't sleep well because of the heat (hardly at all the first 2 nights we were there). The weather was hot in London while we were there but I will never book a hotel room without air conditioning in summer again. I ended up lying with a wet towel over me in an attempt to cool down (it works after a fashion but isn't really very pleasant to sleep with a wet towel over you). It wouldn't have been so bad if the window had opened fully as the temperature outside did drop to quite pleasant levels in the evening but it was really hard to get a decent exchange of air with such a restricted opening of the window. We did have a fan which helped marginally but it was quite noisy trying to sleep with it on. Also, there was no ventilation in the shower room. There was a vent but it didn't do anything and certainly didn't extract any air (I would have thought that it was a legal requirement to have an extractor fan in an internal bathroom). So the shower room got even hotter than the rest of the room. Re breakfast - it was OK, no more nor less in my opinion. I have read some other reviews about the poor sausages and I agree that they were pretty tasteless and I think a vegetarian could have happily eaten them. Also, the mushrooms and fruit were tinned (individual pieces of fresh fruit e.g. bananas and apples were available). However, the scrambled egg was nice and freshly made and the bread was nice and fresh. I do think that there should have been bacon provided. The coffee was from a machine and was ok. It was a completely self service breakfast - guests had to collect their own cutlery, napkins etc. I probably wouldn't go back unless I was going in winter and couldn't get anywhere else. However, for this trip it was fine. My husband and I were travelling with our nephews and were looking for a triple room for them and a hotel that wasn't too dear. So it fitted the bill.
