Served a purpose, but no more

1. Lost my reservation; long wait at desk; their computers ridiculously slow and it took over 30 minutes to check in. 2. Staff needs to learn what hospitality really means 3. hairdryer in room never worked and must have been 20 years old. 4. It does now have in-room wifi, thankfully 5. it was clean 6. bathroom shower fixture broken and hand-held shower clip kept falling off. 7. Location close to tube is good and there are good pubs and Waitrose in the 'hood.

location good, average room

Location is great, however room as small (clean) and very limited amenities in the room. Make sure to ask for a room not facing the road, as the window sealing is poor. Not for a family.

needs and is doing an upgrade

nice location, helpful staff, clean, comfortable rooms; but at the price it needs the upgrade it is undertaking. Currently, wifi is in lounge only (which is poorly appointed), TV includes four or five channels with poor reception (no cable) and breakfast is disappointing. But the staff really is good, and clearly the hotel wants to be better. more than adequate for leisure traveler, not ready for business customers.

Great Hotel

It was great! the only missing thing was free wifi in the room. Instead, I had to go downstairs to get it.

Noise, no air, 2 star hotel advertised as 4 star

Hotel advertised as 4 stars, but no ware close. Check in to a dingy poorly maintained room with no air conditioning and very loud busy street. Over 80 degrees in room with window open. Hotel staff’s only assistance was directions to a convenience store for ear plugs. Front desk clerk finally apologized, but said nothing could be done because they were over booked. Would be impossible to sleep there, had to leave hotel and pay through the nose for an actual 4 star hotel. Hotel later charged for 3 nights.

Basic, cheap room

There are 18 rooms on each floor (that's a bit of a misnomer - my room was on the half floor between levels 2 and 3, which led to some humorous banter with other patrons about looking for John Malcovitch#. My room certainly didn't look anything like the photographs. The room was small, plain and unventilated #which was a problem the first two days when it was hot). Access was by a lift and two staircases - not good for someone who has any accessability issues. The bedding was past its "use by" date by a substantial margin. The bath was...compact...about what I had on the A380 I flew in on the way to London, with the addition of a shower stall too small to bend over in (which led to a few comical moments of trying to pick up soap with my feet). On the good side, the staff was generally friendly and helpful, the breakfast competant and reasonably priced (although no variety) and the location was quite good. Good value for the low price - but select this one only if you aren't planning on spending anything but sleeping time in your room. But four stars...not for my room.
