                        I liked staff. Friendly

                        Needs to be renovated, especially floors and carpets

                        The location is very good and that is the only one advantage of this hotel.

                        The room is very poor equipped, the carpet is old and dirty, curtain with holes on it. The bathroom is terrible, with old tiles and dirty shower curtain. You can hear the noise from other rooms, there is no staff on the reception. The dining tables are not very clean and breakfast includes 3 kinds of corn flakes, milk, yogurt, juice, coffee, toast, butter, cheap marmalade and chocolate cream. Value for money is very law and I would strongly recommend to avoid this terrible hotel.

                        Close to the tube station

                        Upon arriving at the hotel there was no staff present, we had to use the phone on reception to call for someone as a sign on the counter informed us to do. It took 15-20 mins for someone to come and register us. It took a further 10 mins for the woman to find our reservation which she tried to tell us wasnt there! In our room were two ledges, above the door and bathroom, which had not been cleaned at all. There was dust, dirt and builders tools laying on them. The carpet in our room hadnt even been hoovered for our arival which u would expect when check out is 10am and check in is 3pm. There was a choice of cerial or toast for breakfast, although no fridge so the milk was left out on the table during breakfast from 7am till 9.30am. There was no ketel, only a machine which made badly tasting coffee. We were woken early in the morning by drilling noises. There is no phone in the room to phone reception to complain, and there was no one on reception at all. Infact after being checked in we saw no staff at all for the rest of the day, night and next morning!

                        room was a reasonable size and bed was quite confortable.

                        plumbing was very noisy, curtains didn't fir the window, but worst thing was the breakfast or lack of it. Some white sliced bread in a bread bin not in wrapper, by a toaster, some large bowls of cereals, tea bags which tasted like they were made from florr shavings. The woman who should have been helping or serving just topped up the things then sat down on a chair and read a book, not explaining to anyone where things were and what to do.

                        Good location, close to metro and a number of attractions. Breakfast included, but it is minimal.

                        Extremely uncomfortable bed - hardly slept. The bathroom was always stinking, no ventilation, whatsoever.

                        The location of the hotel is great for EasyBus and London Stansted Airport, Few good pubs with nice food around (Allsop Arms, The Volenteer) with normal prices. Price for the hotel is good, staff helpfoul. Bed is Clean, Hot water in shower plenty. 10 minute walk to Oxford street, 3 minute walk to Baker street tube station, bus station. Taxis and buses drive by hotel all the time. Hotel is in very good position in London.

                        Carpet... Old, dirty. Floor is old, not leveled, cracky wooden. Room was cold. Bed old not comfortable. Internet access sometime works, but mostly it doesn't. Poor breakfest. Very good hotel on pictures.. but when you come there... the state od the hotel is very very bad. Very old building, smelly, noisy... (all of minuses of the hotel, the staff is trying to fix, but hotel must be demolished, build new and with all brand new stuff in it) If no money and need to sleep one night is OK (just OK)... For vacation, or more than 2 days in hotel.. Not recomend

                        The only thing I liked was the location in Central London and close to the Tube station

                        The hotel is in need of total renovation, everything is quite old and outdated. There is no real "staff" taking care of the reception. They do not have electronic access to the credit card system. You have to pay everything at check-in. The bathroom is cramped and toilet does not always work. No TV nor telephone in the room.

                        The only thing about this hotel that I didn’t dislike was the location. Situated in central London, just off of Baker Street means it’s very easy to get almost anywhere in the city. Plus you’re only a two minute walk from the nearest tube station.

                        This hotel is grimy and in some places just plain dirty, the staff are immensely rude and because this hotel is situated above an Indian restaurant it does tend to smell in the evening. Payment has to be made up front (even when paying by Credit Card) which makes it difficult if you want to change your booking i.e. leave part way through your stay. There is a sign in the reception that says that any complaints to the manager should be made in writing, which means that you can never get anything resolved during your stay. We tried to spend as little time as we could in the hotel because it was so bad and we wanted to have the absolute minimum amount of contact with the staff. Because of this we never had breakfast in the hotel (so that’s s

                        The location of the Hotel was great.

                        It was a bit grubby - ok if your'e used to camping, but wouldn't recommend it to folk who prefer something a little more luxurious.

                        The location was great

                        Was expecting basic but hotel rooms were very shabby with threadbare carpets, torn curtains, very few facilities no tv & a kettle no one would use.
