Good value in London”

I read some negative reviews before booking, however I found the hotel well situated just round the corner from Goodge Street tube station, the staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was included and there was plenty of it. The room was clean, bathroom was very cramped however that's not unusual in London unless you are in a new build expensive hotel. I didn't see a lift so if you have mobility issues ask for a ground floor room, but to the crux of the matter would I recommend this hotel the answer then is for the price charged YES.

A lovely hotel in an excellent location both for London attractions and patients of UCLH, literally a 2 minute walk from the hospital. The hotel has everything you need and the staff are helpful and polite. Do not expect a 5* hotel , but it is clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful and it is a cosy and comfortable hotel.

Hotel that felt more like a B&B”

Location

On Gower Street in a row with many other hotels, this hotel is small. Rooms with own shower includes only a small cubicle to shower, and a basin. Toiletbowls are still got common sharing. However, the showerhead in our room was not functioning well and they gladly upgraded us to a triple room with no extra charge. Glad to know that the triple room consisted of proper toilet facilities as well. Breakfast consists of the standard english breakfast, cereal and toast. Simple and good stay here. They have maps and brochures provided at the entrance to the hotel.

Simple Breakfast

This is a very small hotel, room is very small especially the bathroom 2"x2". For poo poo & pee pee, toilets are located outside your room. Breakfast is ok if you're just staying for 1-2 nights. The design of the hotel really looks like English so don't expect too much from this simple hotel other than just a place to put a night.

Location

We were given a room which was on the top floor of this small hotel. There was no lift available and to take up luggage to our room was a tribulation. Also if you arrive prior to arrival time there is no set luggage storage to leave your luggage. We were told to leave our luggage in the hallway opposite the main door. Our room was very small with hardly enough room to move around. There was a small shower with little water pressure and we were required to use communal toilet. Kettle was supplied but it hadn't been cleaned out and the water inside was putrid . This is not a hotel to use if you enjoy relaxing in your room. Luckily we only needed a bed to sleep in during our stay as we were too busy being tourists
