If you book a double room at this side, it's not a double room but a dorm room! If you don't mind a dorm room which is very small (but the cover and the matraces is compfy) you get a hostel in the middle of London, next the the Themse.

the hotel is very dated. No lift and we were given a top floor room. bathrroom at times with no water and no light at one of the toilets. It should have mentioned in their website that this hotel is not suitable for families with young children. After checkout I left the luggage in the luggage storage room I was suprised to see a metal stool put upside down with the metal stand which is like a star shape pierced through my luggage and ripped through our luggage. Had a word with the staff and mentioned on the health and safety perspective it was dangerous and can harm people while retrieving their bags. Later I came back to collect my luggage and no action has been taken and the metal stool was in the same position. This place is no go for families with very young children

Be wary of the dorm rooms”

Such a promising name and a great location but this place is only ideal if you need a bed, if you need a shower or to open your suitcase then go elsewhere. The rooms are tiny with nowhere to put bags, the hallways are tiny, the toilets are tiny. If you have luggage then the dorm rooms will not work well, there is nowhere for them to be opened other than on your bed. Compared to other hostel style places in the capital it is expensive but the location is top class and the staff are nice. Those with a suitcase should avoid.

Convenient location and very nice staff”

located right in the city centre, easy to get around, safe and clean environment

The hotel is located on Strand, next to the Waterloo bridge. This is a hotel for people who want a place to sleep and browse in the city instead of expecting a luxury accommodation to enjoy staying in. As soon as you walk down the street, you ca find yourself navigate to London city without trouble. The closest subway is Temple but Covent Garden is also just 5 minute walk. It means if you come from London Heathrow Airport, you can get on Piccadilly Line and get off at Covent Garden, or change to Victoria Line and get off at Temple. There are also many major bus stops on the same block. For the facilitates of the hotel, don't expect much as this place is a budget hotel. Only basic rooms. When I was there, the shower rooms on my floor are out of order, I have to go to next floor but it did not bother me. There is one room with single shower and another room with a shower in a big bath tub. They look pretty clean, but I just didn't dare to try to take a bath. The hotel have a lounge area with fast wifi but not in the room area. But this is good enough and the lounge also served drinks with a small amount of charges. Every staff is super nice and helpful whenever you have any questions. For the price that is a good deal in central London.

Inexpensive, although you get what you pay for. Tolorable in small doses. ”

It was certainly inexpensive & in a great location. The staff were always helpful. Still, it wasn't as advertised. There was free Wi-fi, but only in the common areas. It doesn't extend to the rooms. The rooms had excellent closet and storage space, & a sink for washing. Unfortunately there were no private bathrooms. One has to exit their room to use a toilet or shower. Struck me more as being more a hostel or dormitory than a hotel. I especially did not care for climbing up a full foot up into the shower. The walls are quite thin & you can hear everything down the hall. No lift, stairs only. There was regular breakfast consisting of cereal, coffee, tea, toast, jam, honey, & pancakes. I just wish they could include scrambled eggs at least. But if you're a young tourist & will be out all day, the Strand Continental is a great place to spend the night. And you can store your bags away after check out-in case you want to do last-min sight-seeing. It's tolerable-just don't stay a week.

Location, freindly staff

I've stayed at The Strand Continental 4 times now and I have been perfectly satistied everytime. The location midtown close to soho and West end is perfect for the theatre loving kind. The hotel might be more of a hostel-kinda-like, but it covers all your basic needs and even include breakfast if you don't feel like going out. I like it there, the staff is friendly and helpfull, the pricing is cheap and I will continue to stay at the Strand until I win the lottery
