Photos show more than it is

The hotel was just ok. It's close to the train station, but rooms are really small and the bathroom wasn't the cleaness in the world.

Unfortunately unpleasant

I have traveled often and never until now given a hotel a bad review. We loved the location of the hotel, and at first the staff were very helpful and friendly but as we spent time in our room we realized that the plumbing was inadequate. Not only did the toilet sound like a lawn mower but it rarely actually worked. We also had no hot water during our 3 day stay. The staff said there was someone available 24 hours a day, but when we tried to find them to report our problems we could never contact anyone. We ended up feeling very stuck. I would definitely be weary of spending your money here.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

When going through the markets shop around first! You can usually haggle!

Pleasently Surprised

After reading some reviews I was a bit concerned before arriving. Now that I have stayed I was glad I didnt cancel. The room was a good size for a city hotel. No tea and coffee facilities in the rooms but these were available in the dining room all day Staff well informed, very polite and helpful during my stay and a basic breakfast was included in the price. Will use this hotel again

Would not recomend this hotel to anyone...

Very high price inadequate to this what they are offering. Room was clean although very small. Very old bathroom without face towels (only bath towels were provided!) and hairdryer. Breakfast very basic (tosts and muesli). Wi fi access cost 9 Ł per day...no free wi fi in the hotel. Staff was very nice and helpfull and the location was very good if you want to visit London but price is deffinitely to high and the rooms have nothing to do with official photos shown on the webside....I would never give two stars to this hotel and would not advise anyone to book it if you are not desperate.
