Central, Convenient and Posh”

Very close to central locations. I would walk to Shepard's Bush Station which has the central lines and the main outskirt lines. The studio is perfect for business and single travelers. If you are looking for a peaceful and catered to type of stay, this is not for you. For me, it was perfect and they cleaned my studio everyday with fresh towels, a true plus! I definitely stay here again :-)

Our stay started not so well and was not the fault of 88 studios but we booked through an online site which requested the wrong room type. Anyway we went into the smaller room which for four people was tight. However the room was clean, tidy, and in a great location. Loved the kitchenette. The staff are lovely. Just check your room allocation when you book.

Most of the stay was fine”

The hotel was nice enough for the price, but did have some downsides. The second building which makes up the hotel is across a sometimes very busy road with no nearby crosswalk. So if you have any issues, you have to run across this street to talk to the desk (there are no phones in the rooms). Twice we were given dirty towels when our room was cleaned. Once the water was turned off for hours in the afternoon. Apparently it was planned maintenance that they did not bother to warn the guests about. The bed was poor quality and the individual springs in the mattress could be felt.

Rude Staff”

We had a triple room for myself and my 2 friends. Our room was scorching hot from the outset but we thought it would cool down. We headed straight out and came back late, the room was still boiling. We tried to get to sleep and had to ring the front desk at 4:30am as we couldn’t sleep in the 28 deg heat due to the mis functioning air con. The staff member said they weren’t an engineer and there was nothing they could do. We insisted they came to the room to investigate. The staff member arrived, reiterating he wasn’t an engineer and shrugged, “what do you want me to do about it?” in a rude tone. His attitude stunk. Over and over he said it wasn’t his fault and what did we want him to do. We said we didn’t care who’s fault it was, we just want it fixed. We asked to move rooms and there weren’t any to accommodate. The staff member clearly knew nothing about customer service and actually made us feel worse. There is no way I’d recommend this hotel if this is how they deal with a problem.

Mice & dirt under bed. When offer to send 3 photos of mice and 1 of dirt there were not interested at all. Asked politely to change room but inexperienced receptionists responded: you have to send email to manager. Faceless manager! never showed up. Booking confirmation at 88 Studios, at 88 Holland Rd. but send you across to another premises. Where on earth is this legal? Receptionists are itinerant whom tell you: doing the job for the money & that is what you get by booking with Agoda. 73 years old with 3 other people, have traveled around but never experienced such treatment & disgusting premises. We request Agoda to give us an email address for MSTAY organization. Agoda is getting bad reputation by offering such an establishment and we feel we should have some form of compensation, just alone to the fact being sent to another address. Booked 6 months in advance & could not accommodate simple request: 1 double & 1 twin room. Prepared to send you photos if you required.
