Basic room and general decor throughout is nothing special. The room itself was in need of some tlc (cracked tiles for example) and the sink was so small you couldn't fill the kettle in it. No air con in the room, so it was boiling hot. Fine for a single nights stay but I wouldn't return for anything longer.
We chose here for the location and the price. Being one of the cheaper options in this area definitely made it more desirable, it was ideally located for our gig at the Dome in Tufnell Park. Reception were out having a fag when we showed up so we had a little wait. Boxes everywhere & they're obviously doing work on the place. Room was adequate, very dated and old bathroom with good working shower & noisy fan. However, we didn't need to stay here for longer than it took to get ready for the gig. We returned late to a boiling hot room, it was a balmy night. I was pleased to see the window opened fully which you don't get in many places anymore so was ideal to cool the room and get a good breeze. Breakfast was a bit of a joke for us, we ended up with tea, warm orange juice and burnt toast, there wasn't much on offer, all food on offer sweating in a hot conservatory with a mardy faced employee not particularly caring if we were there or not. I would only return for convenience of location only and a bed for the night, I'll save the brekkie for somewhere else!
I chose this place to be close to an event where I was going. The staff was great, place is clean but basic and ageing. Great connection by bus, 10 mins to St Pancras and 5 to Camden town. Breakfast was included but basic (no coffee). If you're just looking for a bed and a shower while visiting London, this will do.
Came for a hen weekend. The room was ok although the toilet didn't flush properly so that was awkward! Continental breakfast consisted of cornflakes or musely (with warm milk as it was left out on the side) a plate of sweaty ham and cheese. And toast. I thought continental was fruit. Yoghurt. Croissants etc. And it was served in a sweltering conservatory. I certainly wouldn't come back.
As a regular visitor to London for business purposes I found the hotel was a good fit for what I needed. It was clean, comfortable and close to where I needed to be. I do intend to use the hotel again in the future.
Honestly would have left but I couldn't find a room anywhere else. This place fools you with a nice lobby (that's still being built and had boxes everywhere) but I really think this used to be a bedsit place or similar as it's rooms are atrocious. Something is being built outside but no idea what that was. There were hand marks as well as obvious old smoking stains on the walls too. Everything in the bathroom is rusty, toilet is chipped, taps and shower are either lukewarm or scalding hot. Heated towel rack doesn't work and is loaded with rust. Stained pillows and duvet. Creaky old bed that moved constantly. 24 hour reception includes the staff sleeping on the sofa and being annoyed if you wake them up. Reception desk lady very frosty, no info about anything given. Never again...
Took shuttle more than 30 minutes to pick us up. The place is only a 5-10 minute ride from the airport. Rooms are very small but have everything one needs. TV runs as slow as molasses, it takes several seconds for new channel to come on or menu to pop up. Pick up shuttle person never talked to us on the way to hotel, just had loud music on. Breakfast was ok and served fairly quickly. Bad pop music was playing overhead, not sure we need that kind of music that early in the morning. Our room faced the main road so it stayed quite noisy during the night. Our ride back to the airport was on time, the driver this time was much friendlier. Convenient hotel if you are not in a rush and are spending a night near the Gatwick airport, cheaper than the airport hotel.
Just got back from 2 days staying at this hotel it advertises breakfast but it’s not a fry up it’s sort of a continental type breakfast and they use paper plates and paper type bowls to use for cereals and plastic cutlery and No tea or coffee !!! These are just some of the Photos of just some of the things in our room in which we paid £214 for 2 nights (cannot load the rest of the photos for some reason )we would of refused to pay but money was taken before we seen our room also we would of refused to stay but we would of had to pay round £90 to cancel so we felt trapped as that would mean lose £90 plus we would have had to find another hotel at sort notice we did say about the breakfast etc but we felt we were just fighting a loosening battle and didn’t want to spoil our trip away ..will leave it to you to decide if you stay at this hotel ....... Photos are ...broken toilet seat ,dirty woodwork ,no door on wardrobe,shower tray black mould,broken floor tiles ,dirty stained seat,chip plaster,dirty tile grout ...photos I cannot download but will try again ...broken basin shelve just sharp broken brackets left screwed to tiles ,holes in tiles on wall were something was taken off,
A very good hotel and very reasonable price for london travelled down for the england game and stayed for one staff very friendly hotel very clean and tidy rooms very spacious with ensuite close to camden town underground station to get into central london will definitely be staying again next time we come down to london its not the ritz but a very clean and nice hotel fully recommended if you don't want to pay the ridiculous prices hotels in london charge see you in june for the next england game and the autumn internationals for the rugby as well very satisfied customer
Unpleasant stay for various reasons. First issue - card key for the door didn’t work, meaning we had to ask reception for a master key any time we wanted to go into the room. This was inconvenient, we were told it was 24 hour staff at the desk - we came back from a gig and had to knock the door for about 20 minutes before anyone would let us into the hotel. Second, room wasn’t particularly clean, it was dated and the shower in the bathroom was rubbish. Tiny tiny bathroom. third (and most disappointing) was that I booked a room and was charged £120, my friends had the exact same room for £90 - I asked why I was charged £30 more and the receptionist said they would sort the issue out. Upon checkout the new receptionist refused to refund me and I had to get him to call the manager, who also wouldn’t issue my refund. Wouldn’t stay again, rip off prices for such a dated room. Unfriendly staff, rude and unhelpful.
