Review of Americana Hotel

One night stay at Americana
We stayed at the Americana as our first night in London after an allnight flight. It was very cheap for the location. A very nice neighborhood close to fantastic Regent Park. The location and price made up for most of the bad things about this
hotel. The front of the hotel and desk area are very nice. But the room was pretty dingy, the walls scuffed, dirt in the corner of everything, dirty carpets. The bathroom was nicer it felt as if it had been remodeled but they didn't touch the bedroom area. The shower was really good. Lots of very hot water and plenty of water pressure. The shower was the cleanest part of the rooms so that was good! There was a very small tv attached to the wall, like in a bar. The traffic noise outside on the street was very hard to get over. They had a very nice little automatic coffee/espresso/hot chocolate maker downstairs in the lobby which kind of made up for the dingy room. But unfortunately in the morning when I really needed the coffee I came downstairs to discover it was broken. The guy at the front desk when we arrived was very helpful, but the guy at the front desk the next morning was not. When I asked if he had any alternative to the broken coffee maker he pointed me to some dried coffee flakes. Then he gave me some very vague directions to coffee shops in the area. I wouldn't stay here again, but if you were looking for cheap place in that neighborhood it might be ok for one night if you don't care about cleanliness that much.
