Great location - small but clean

terrible experience

Me and two of my college roommates from Chicago planned a trip to visit our other roommate in London who is studying abroad there. As three 20 year olds, we were very excited to visit London and have a great time. It was not going to be a long trip, only from Thursday to Sunday but we were excited to be there. Anyways, I booked a hotel room with two beds and a sleeper sofa at the Americana hotel a few months in advance just to make sure everything went smooth. But when we arrived at the hotel, the manager insisted that because I didn't tell them (the hotel) that there were three of us for the room, the room was not available? And what he could do was give us two separate rooms on different floors and then transfer us to a different hotel the next night that was 3 miles away. I kept trying to explain the situation but he kept inferring it was all my fault; i told him we specially booked this hotel because it was only .4 miles from our friend and we would even just accept getting a cheap 1 bedroom room and two of us could sleep on the floor; we wouldn't get what we payed for but we really didn't care anymore. The manager said no because he already booked us into another hotel (keep in mind he never consulted or asked if that was okay, he told us and we had no choice). We didn't want this to ruin our trip so we just said whatever and accepted his "offer". Obviously not pleased and unhappy, they told us they will book and pay for the cab from our new hotel to the airport when we leave; we thought that was a nice gesture and made up for some of the troubles. Fast forward to the day we leave and the taxi is nowhere to be seen and we were stressing out because we were worried we might miss the flight. I called the Americana hotel and asked where the taxi was and they, in short, said "you misunderstood us, we didn't say we'd pay for the taxi", when all three of us where positive he offered that to us. I said some unpleasant things and hung up. In the end, we barely made the flight and had to pay the fee of 60 pounds (roughly 90 US$) for the taxi. Overall, it was a terrible experience and very unfortunate. I'm not sure if they overbooked the room we initially booked or what but I strongly suggest to look elsewhere. Terrible staff and didn't feel cared about; just the cheapest alternative for them.

Great location - small but clean

Apart from some rather large stains on the carpets throughout the hotel, everything was very clean. The room was small but at this price, in this location what more could you expect? It was perfect for what we needed and I would stay again. Having read the reviews, I'm glad that my friend and I opted for a quieter double room at the back, rather than a twin at the front. It isn't the busiest road in London but the buses come thundering past at all hours.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Don't just get on the tube at Baker Street... walk through Regents Park and through Mayfair onto Oxford Street. It doesn't take long and you've saved yourself the tube fare... to put towards dinner in one of the lovely boutique cafes on Marylebone High Street!

Good value for the money

Room was tiny and noisy (streetside and no AC, so had to leave window open), but OK for our needs. Bathroom was modern and clean. Great location, good complimentary breakfast, and helpful staff. Unusual in Europe that there was no electric kettle in the room, but hot drinks were available downstairs.
