Stayed for one night to watch a football match arrived about 3 pm the staff were polite and helpful, rooms could do with an overall. Never tried the breakfast as I had to catch a train. On the plus side it was close to train station pictures from room 18

the hotel is in great location in London but the road noise was terrible we couldnt sleep for 2 nights and it is very very dirty, there is a very short kind of wardrobe no lifts and very narrow stairs, it says breakfast included the breakfast was horrible and it is an open place so if it is cold you get frozen and the breakfast man doesnt even speak english so hard to communicate with.the bathroom door doesnt close at allllll, very dirty tiny showerroom.very dirty sink. in terms of money it is cheap. very friendly stuffs as well.

Not very well looked after. Bedding appeared clean but nothing else was. Floors and walls were grim. Shower goes red hot and freezing cold, the head constantly dropped and moved and the shower tray leaked out into the bathroom. Toilet seat broken, bathroom cabinet broken. Glad we were only booked in for 1 night. Quite noisy on a night until early hours. Friends room had blood in the wall. Only good point really was that it's handy for Ally Pally but there's probably a whole load of other places you could stay.

I don't know where to start, so the beginning will be the good place. We arrived at the very conveniently located hotel and was greeted by the manager on reception. He took my payment (before I'd even seen the room) and then handed us a key to room 27. We stepped into the room to be greeted by a clearly dirty room. The bed had been slept in and there were towels and sheets on the floor. We returned to reception to a very apologetic manager who advised he had given us the wrong key and handed us the key to room 26. We entered here and found a made bed, however the bathroom light did not work. We returned to reception and the manager followed us into our room and proceeded to assist by touching the sensor in the bathroom with a stick. This was the extent of our misfortune only on the arrival day, it continued. Our nights were uncomfortable as the bed was hard and the pillows were thin and not supportive (there was only 1 each). The first morning we followed the signs to our 'Full English' breakfast (see photo of the third day breakfast, even after complaining to the manager). We were greeted by a member of staff who asked if we would like to eat. Upon confirming this he returned to the kitchen and came back with greasy scrambled egg, a tomato and a slice of toast. We were not given any choice, asked if we ate bread etc. I paid for a cheap hotel and therefore only expect the basics but even these were not present. After our first day exploring the city we returned to our room and found it had not been cleaned whilst we were out. The bed was not made and the cups we had used the night before were sat dirty. Someone had clearly been into the room as the towels were folded on the end of the bed, but I do not believe these were fresh towels but the ones I had placed on the radiator this morning. We complained to the night porter who took our cups and washed them for us. There was no apology from him. The following morning we did not want to go for breakfast (due to the poor performance the previous day), this is a good job as the sockets in our room were not working. This was due a tripped electricity board, this was a fault in the kitchen we were told. This morning I had requested a hairdryer (as I'd been advised before arriving there was one) and was handed a hairdryer from reception. This was unable to be used due to the socket problem, however it had clearly not been PAT tested. The manager asked if he could bring an expention to my room for the hairdryer from part of the hotel that had power. What an absolute farce. Before leaving for the day I spoke with the manager to explain how the basics I expected were lacking. He thanked me for my feedback and assured me our room would be in a much better state when we returned. We returned, the bed was made and and the cups were clean, I don't belive anything else had been cleaned however as the bathroom floor still had something on it that was there when we arrived. There was also an apology bottle of water and chocolate bar for each of us. I could continue, but you've certainly not made it this far I'm sure. We stayed in a terrible hotel and do not plan to return.

There's nothing good to say about the hotel. Find another one. Small smelly and noisy rooms and bathroom . Very narrow stairs, no elevator. The breakfast is basic and in a different place. Not recommended at all

Because I booked a trip to London last minute I had limited choice for affordable accommodation in the range of 50-70 usd. I booked this hotel and while the room was ok the breakfast was very poor showing and the service too.

Easy to find and close to train station breakfast was nice but limited as what they had no sausage bacon or orange juice, friendly staff but there English wasn’t great noisy as the walls are rather thin some good places to eat a short walk away make sure you take cash to pay for your room as well

Don't expect luxury, you get exactly what you pay for. If you want a bed for the night and a shower in the morning this is the place for you. It's stops away from the Ally Pally and over the road from Harringay station so perfect for my visit. It wasn't anywhere near as bad as i was expecting after reading these reviews, I don't think the negativity is justified - its just very basic. I thought the shower was very good, I've paid more for a room and had a worse shower. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful, wished us a great evening at the gig. I'd stay here again next time i go to the ally appy

I knew I was booking into a budget hotel but what I didn't count on was the noise. Whilst booking in I was asked to pay cash as the credit card machine wasn't working, this meant that I had to walk to the high street which was quite a trek to find a cash machine. Whilst searching for a cash machine (Sainsbury's came up trumps) I found somewhere to get something to eat (McDonalds). When I got back to the hotel I was looking forward to watching a bit of telly before going to sleep (I had been up since 5.00am travelling. Room was basic, double bed, very firm mattress, two very flat pillows and duvet and a floor fan. It became apparent why I would need this as due to the really loud music from the bar below there was no way I could have a window open. No remote for the TV, I had to ask twice before they found the right one for the TV and that was in another room, apparently this room had two remotes!!!! Couldn't get any hot water in the sink although the shower was nice and hot. Two towels which were small. Room appeared clean but then I didn't have the energy to poke around too much. Unfortunately my room was at the back on the property over the courtyard of the bar next door. Music went on until very late and was very loud so encroached on the volume of the TV. In the end I gave up and managed to doze until it stopped and then fell asleep. Next morning I was looking forward to my breakfast which had been advertised as continental. I followed the verbal directions to find where breakfast was to be served and couldn't believe that I had to go along a corridor to a fire escape, through this down the metal stairs to the bar below. I was met by a nice lady who asked if I would like the full breakfast, not one to turn down a proper breakfast I said yes please. Coffee was served first, this was absolutely disgusting, really strong and tasted awful. The breakfast arrived, I was so shocked it didn't occur to me to take a photo. Two slices of bread which had just been shown the toaster, baked beans, 2 fried eggs and some sort of sausage. One taste of this led me to believe that there was no meat involved, it literally dissolved on my tongue. None of this was edible so left it and had a cup of tea in my room before packing up to leave. On a plus note though the staff were very friendly and courteous. I definitely will not be going back to this hotel.

A two star hotel with no pretensions to be anything else. Nice enough room, very comfy bed, fan and small heater in the room allows you to adjust the temperature to your needs. Breakfast is served in a wired semi outdoor dungeon, the day I stayed the chef, who is also the waitress was late, and when she did arrived she served other guests ahead of me even though I was there first. If you just need a place to rest your head in a convenient location for transit into central London this is it, but you won't be writing home about it.
