Chose this "hotel" due to the close proximity of the meeting location I traveled to London for... And due to booking.com reviews saying the place was clean. Well, even by London standards, definitely NOT. My room was on the 2nd floor and the first thing I noticed was that there was no towel provided. Oh wait, opening the closet it turns out there WAS, a dirty crumbled towel lying on the floor among a dirty crumbled duvet. Below heaps of cheap hangers attesting to former guests' shopping sprees at nearby Primark. After asking I did receive some clean towels - but the state was questionable. I have to state that the actual sheets & pillowcases on the bed appeared to be clean, but the cover and the duvet cover were both badly stained ranging from fresh to old crusty ones. Next, I was looking forward to having a nice warm bath after an exhausting day - well, forget it, as in Room 9, there is no plug to stop the drain. So then I decided to go for the shower and I wish I hadn't: the water pressure is non-existent, definitely not helped by the extensive limescale throughout. The water is either burning hot or freezing cold and it took about 30 minutes to rinse the shampoo out of my otherwise short hair. Yes, I did try the sink, but it is too small to fit anything under the taps - even a water bottle - let alone your head. The bath floor mat is really grubby and dirty, and since I forgot to bring slippers, I had to sacrifice a towel to walk on, including on the carpet in the room, as going by the state of the place I would not wonder if it never received a proper hoovering, let alone a good deep clean. Who knows what will grow on your feet if you choose to walk barefoot. The sleep experience? The bed is old and the mattress saggy, the room was very warm so I kept the window open all night, which gave me the pleasure of hearing all street sounds, as well as smelling the occasional cigarette smoke (either the nigh staff or another guest hanging out the window on a floor below). In addition, I was entertained (not really) by listening to the snoring of the guest next door, as well as the broken-loud murmur of the dated (but otherwise good sized) fridge in the room. The good thing? The hairdryer. Dated but powerful and dries your buff fast. So, to sum it up, yes, the location is okay and central - but for 65 quid a night I would have been better off going a bit out of town and finding a cleaner and better place - London has MANY little treasures on the affordable side, if you're willing to travel a bit farther. Otherwise, this place is a rip-off and a big NO.

This unexpected little hotel of choice was an unexpected find on the search engines! The room was a nice sized room but it just needs a rethink of design. Although it is lovely to have a large household size fridge in the room, but next to the bed is not a good idea at all especially with hygiene and safety. The En-Suite bathroom is tidy and good to use and easy to maintain, but I think a better colour scheme would be good. The reception was good and the staff were good as well but with the very limited opening times of reception (Between 8am and 10pm) you had to make sure you visited the reception in those times. When booking a taxi it was very unclear in confirming my needed 4am taxi as they did not make it clear and after a period of time I double checked and they wasn't sure so I cancelled it as I wasn't confident of the time I asked on day of check out. However, apart from those, the room in general was very good and spacious for a single and the price was very sensible, given the fact that just two minutes walk would get me to Oxford Street and Hyde Park! Especially for the Winter wonderland event, it is a great safety bolt-hole at night and very easy to reach underground trains to everywhere else. The reception felt homely and welcoming like a good B&B type of accommodation and good information of to do in the area. Although I rated it average, I would use this hotel again on the basis of location and sensible pricing.

It's a basic hotel but in a great location. The room I had was clean and cheap. Breakfast again was basic (cereal and toast) but was delivered to your room. For less than £50 right next to Marble Arch I've got no complaints.

So just had a interesting stay here. Firstly we arrived here at 11.45am we didn’t expect our room to be ready and it wasn’t so we just left our bags. Arrived back in the evening and was given keys to room 6 so off we went to find our room, firstly the door was unlocked, secondly the “big light” didn’t work and thirdly some body else’s belongings were already in here. Went back to reception explained the situation and Eva the receptionist just laughed... gave us new keeps to Room 5 this was our room but again “the big light” didn’t work again so after fighting our way through darkness I found the small bed light. The room was a ok size but was dated there was flashing fairy lights out side the bedroom window that was on 24/7 so we felt like were at a 90s rave with out the drugs..... the bathroom was tiny and I felt cleaner by not having a shower then actually having one. The bedding smelt like it hadn’t been washed in a long time and the cups provided were dirty.... After a broken nights sleep down to a noisy main road and flashing lights breakfast arrived which consisted off a small box of cereal and lightly toasted bread.... Won’t be going back here again, good location but didn’t feel safe. Pay the extra stay somewhere better!!!

Very good location only classed as basic but they accommodated me as I booked a room but my daughter found herself needing a wheelchair fore weekend rang them they found me two singles on ground floor for same price brought us a small breakfast in morning too room,when we wanted it the access has three steps up luckey my daughter got out of chair I lifted the chair up very close too ever thing and bond street has a lift too street not many tube have lifts in London you don't realise till you try it London with a wheelchair only thing with my room toilet way upstairs

stayed overnight for a Ruts DC gig at the 100club. Hotel is in good location 30mins walk to club or 5 mins to marble arch tube/buses easy tyo get where you want to go. £50 for Sat night included breakfast (juice/cereal/toast) brought to my room on a tray. Hotel is tired but fine so really can't fault it for the price. Girls on reception helpful and pleasant although English not their first language so not too confident. Stayed in room4 which was small but comfortable enough, bit of noise from adjacent rooms at times but not really a problem. Sink & shower in room shared toilets across corridor, clean & tidy. If you're expecting 5 star then what are you reading this for?! Would recommend and defo stay there again as price and location difficult to beat. Does what it says on the tin. :)

Only a 5min walk from Hyde Park which was perfect as we stayed in London for a trip to the Winter Wonderland. The room was basic but clean and fairly large, also a breakfast was included in the price (which was a nice surprise). The kettle didn't work but was replaced on request. Overall a perfect place for a cheap stay if you don't plan on spending much time in the hotel.

The hotel is a great value for money because it's located very conveniently - close to the Marble Arch underground, and there are a lot of buses around the corner, including the airport terminals to Luton and Stansted. The room was cleaned every morning, and it included a TV, fan, and coffee maker with instant coffee and tea bags. The wi-fi was good and free of charge. The staff was very kind and even offered a free breakfast (very modest, though). I'll visit again.

We arrived at this hotel to be met with a receptionist who was not very friendly at all. We were second in the queue dreading to be seen next having seen how she had treated the people in front of us then when it was our turn to be checked in the lady started to talk to a gent behind us and did not acknowledge we were there. Finally we got checked in and given our room key and got settled in to a room with a double bed although booked a twin room. After 30 mins we then received a phone call stating we were in the wrong room and we needed to change. The room we were then sent to literally had 2 beds and a shower no toilet facilities and not very clean. I understand for the price you shouldn't expect much but in my opinion you should at least have a clean room and friendly service which this hotel was lacking in both.

Great central location, as close to Marble Arch and Hyde Park. The room is small but gives personal space. Very friendly service. Might not be suitable for everyone as the toilet is on the first floor.
