My self and 2 other Fridays stopped here for one night in a triple room although the rooms are not the biggest it was absolutely spotless the beds are extremely comfortable the shower is hot and powerful only downside was the WiFi was rubbish but that wasn’t really a problem and I do think the check in time should be an hour earlier than 2pm as we went upstairs to go to the toilet and had seen a triple room had just been finished cleaning by housekeeper and it was the room we were put into but in all like the title highly recommend, lovely staff and fair price

May I say this has to be the worst hotel in London ,so bad don't were to start ,after check in we wanted room for three adults be lucky to fitt one person in ,such a dump dirty and outdated ,beds bad and room a joke ,tv the size of a iPad ,had booked in for 4 nights had to check out on first night and find alternative accomodation in that area ,do your self a favour and stay the hell away

Stay for night I was stranded in london everything is very basic staff are friendly west end is close by with bus ride so if u go for night out .victoria train metro and bus all accessible with walking distance good value for money for central london

For 330 pounds for 2 nights, we would have hoped for just a few more square feet, but I guess that's just London pulling our money out through our noses. Our room was a bit of a squeeze for 2 adults and a 10-year-old. However, it was clean and the bathroom looked like it had just been redone, though we could barely turn around in it. The bed sheets were too small and didn't tuck in underneath, so they got all scrunched up in the night and we wound up sleeping on the bare mattress. The TV and wifi worked well, and it was quiet. We were very glad to have a room on the ground floor so we didn't have to drag our luggage up the stairs. Breakfast was decent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The desk is open 24 hours, and they ask you to leave your key. The location is perfect, just around the corner from Victoria Station.

It is a decent enough hotel. Rooms are a bit small but ok for a night or two. Good enough position. The thing that let it down was the breakfast. It offered a continental breakfast when booking but is was toast and cereal.

Booked on the day needing somewhere to stay while having emergency treatment at St Thomas's Hospital. The room took some getting to having climbed three flights of stairs when not very mobile. Luckily we only had to go up and down once. The room was on the small side but very clean and had everything we needed. The man on reception was very helpful, finding extra pillows and booking a taxi for the following day. The breakfast was an added bonus. Would stay there again.

I have stayed with a friend over few nights in this hotel. Perfect location, walking distance to Victoria station and some sightseeing landmarks. While the location is great, the rooms are tiny, not suitable for 2 people to share. If you get a room quite high up, then you have to take all the luggage yourself and stairs are very steep. You can hear everything at night. Staff is friendly and breakfast was very basic but nice.

Stayed for one night this week. Friendly staff at reception. Perfectly adequate room size. Spotlessly clean. Bed fine, if not the most luxuriant mattress I've ever slept on. Bathroom also good and clean, but pressure on shower could have been better. Major downside was the heat, which is admittedly not something you'd really have to consider in a budget London hotel as normally would not be a problem. They have a wall mounted fan which helps a lot, but does not solve the issue, and opening the windows just lets a lot of noise from the road in. I would look for a room to the rear in ideal circs. Would have liked access to some ice but I guess it's not that kind of place. Even London water tastes better when cold. All in all, given price point, this is pretty good value.

The hotel is 3-5min walk from Victoria station which is a great option if you get to London from the airport by coach or train. It's close to Buckingham palace as well. Overall, great location. However, the staff wasn't very friendly and helpful. Only one of the receptionists was very kind and willing to help, unfortunately got to meet him at the end of our trip. Didn't get any info/advice about transportation, sights and other stuff. They offered free breakfast though, which was basic(tea/coffee, toast with jam or nutella & corn flakes) but good. The room was clean but not so comfortable. Very very basic. Small beds, uncomfortable matrasses, no shelves or wardrobes. Wouldn't stay there again.

The hotel is in a great location and for the centre of London it is reasonably priced. Yes the room are small but all London hotels are and frankly you just sleep here anyway. The rooms are clean, look recently redecorated, have all the necessary tea and coffee making facilities, TV and en suite. The beds are comfortable and we were away from the street so there was no traffic noise. We had a wall mounted fan which was great in the warm weather. The bathroom was very small with the sink being in the main bedroom, but all perfectly acceptable. Breakfast wasnt fancy but did the trick, it consisted cereal, toast yogurt and juice, tea & coffee. The only issue we had was the shortage of tables in the dining room for the amount of guests but we didnt wait long on either day. The staff were friendly on the reception and in the dining room. If you have heavy suitcases or mobility issues I would ask for a room on the lower floors as there are 5 floors and no lift. Overall the hotel exceeded my expectations and I would stay here again.
