Cheap hotel. good room. The tv was broken in our room but got fixed on the second day. location was good really close to the underground. The breakfast was absolutely terrible only bread cheese and ham. So we went out for breakfast. Would recommend for 1 night stay.
Have never felt the need to leave a review before but I was really unimpressed with this place. On arrival the hotel looks lovely from the outside but the interior fit and finish looks nothing but completely worn out. We ordered 4 rooms as was away for a family get together and all 4 rooms had same issues, freezing cold at night, only a sheet on the bed not a duvet, the fleece throw in every room was dirty, one room had a huge hole in the carpet, one room had a fully broken bed so had to be moved... Having spent a great weekend in London, unfortunately this hotel was a massive let down and left everyone knackered on the Sunday due to being freezing all night. I'd book a travel lodge over this place every day of the week!
Stayed here for 1 night with my boyfriend from Saturday 24th September. On arrival we were checked in quickly and were even upgraded to an executive double room with a balcony, what a bonus! Room was a good size clean and tidy, (just like the pictures.) The bed was comfortable and the shower was very great.The free continental breakfast was good had the basics like bread, cereal, fruit, yoghurts etc. Plenty for everyone, with enough seating! The hotel is very close to Gloucester Road tube station, with lots of places to eat and drink nearby.Would happily stay in this hotel again no problems whatsoever!
We stayed in the hotel for the night. We chose this place due to it being linked to a theatre package deal and having good reviews on trip adviser. The staff are so lovely and they have a good little cafe at the reception and the breakfast was good. The rooms were neat & clean. The only things letting the hotel down are the following - no duvet, just a sheet on the bed and a standard blanket in wardrobe like the ones that don't get washed everytime. Not a very comfy bed at all, springs very noticeable. Neither bedside lamps worked nor TV but when reported there was no one on duty to fix until tomorrow by which time we'd left anyway. If these easy fixes were put right a very pleasurable stay.
Ok so the building is beautiful the room was clean and tidy however i do think you are only paying for the location. The room lacked basic facilities such as an iron and enough wardrobe space (four hangers on a thirty cm rain) which i dont think is too much to ask when we paid £150 for one night. The room is very small and the balcony was coveres in cigerette butts. You dont get a duvet, just a sheet so it was a very cold night. Positives.... staff were friendly and the shower was lovely.
