Recent guest reviews
I stayed here for a week this past September (2013) while visiting London from the US. It was an excellent experience to say the least. The room was clean, very quite, affordable, the mattress was comfy, two pillow choices were given (firm and soft), PLENTY of electrical outlets, and the room size was relatively big for London. The free breakfast was one of the determining factor to why I chose this hotel. The hot buffet style breakfast include many different items that was enough to satisfy us fully. However, I would have liked to see a few change ups on the menu throughout the week. It got a little old after 7 days of the same meal, but it was still good either way. There is also a bar downstairs which was a nice touch. A few of the things I did not like was the distance to the inner city, the room key cards, the no early check in policy. To get to the hotel from the center of London it takes 45 mins which includes travel by the tube and the 97 or 215 bus. The key cards constantly needed reset/re-magnitized even though we didn't have them near a cell phone or anything. On the day of our arrival to Heathrow at 8:30am (like when most international flights arrive) the staff provided no option for early check in so we had to change cloths in the bathroom and couldn't take a shower upon arriving. We had to dig through our luggage in the lobby in front of other guests. The last thing that would have made our stay better was getting rid of the energy saver light switch. If we wanted to charge our phones or laptops when we were downstairs for breakfast or across the street at the supermarket, we had to leave a room key card in a light switch card slot. The outlets would not work without it in. This was highly annoying during our stay. Other than those few hiccups, our stay was very pleasant and allowed us to have a great experience in London
The hotel is a little far away from the center of the city, but it has accesible transportation. Our room was clean, and quiet. There is a supermarket just across the street wich is very convenient. Breakfast is included and it was excelent.
