              • Older travelers
                5.4

                There's no restaurant, "breakfast" = 2xcake, juice, yogurt = 3.95GPB; room for two person was 2,5x2m with small double bed and dirty bedding. Washbasin in the bathroom was too small.

              • Family with children
                9.2

                clean, comfortable, economical, good location. Staff were helpful and friendly.

                water pressure in shower wasn't great. Room was small (but adequate for the amount of time spent there)

              • Single
                5.8

                Basic, but clean. Ensuite was excellent.

                Lacked decent breakfast , and in room tea/coffee.Noise from adjacent flats was a pain. I thought cost was a bit high otherwise ok

              • Family with children
                7.8

                Nice staff

                The brown bag breakfast. Why do you bother? If you're not going to provide a real breakfast or at least a place to sit down and eat it, why go to the trouble? We saw many other guets eating out in nearby cafes.

              • Single
                6.6

                Staff were helpful. Room was small, clean and functional, overall cheap and cheerful.

                Water was not hot and shower only a trickle. Bed has bunk attachment at right angles 2 feet above your head when lying down. Impossible to see TV from bed. Blinds did not cover window - as groundfloor room people outside drinking coffee can looking in at you. Breakfast is a bag (juice, yogurt, frozen crossaint), obtained from reception, eaten in your room.

              • Family with children
                5.4

                The room was clean.

                The hotel was in a rough part of town - we made sure to be back in the room before dark. Our room was on the ground floor and the window overlooked a mound of garbage bags!

              • Single
                10.0

                I thought this was a real gem of a hotel. It was very quiet, the room was lovely, at this price I am used to a blanket but it had a lovely duvet and nice pillows. It's very close to the tube station too.

              • Family with children
                6.2

                Near Olympia, good price considering the location

                Small room (but it's London). Had to pay straight away (expensive rate of exchange).

              • Group of friends
                5.8

                The location was excellent.

                The room was extremely small, way too small for 5 people .... The breakfast could have had some yogurt or fruit, too much bread ....

              • Family with children
                5.0

                Traveled to London Central to see the sights and watch Shrek

                Rooms for a family are far too small, staff are pleasant enough but West Kensington Tube was not available for the duration of our ,weekend stay and this information should have been placed on your website as we had a 15 minute walk to the next tube with a small child. The hotel is ok, but it's budget accommodation, don't stay if you are expecting comfort or a central location, The hotel was very clean, but we were so disappointed with the size of the room

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                rooms were quite small but the staff were very helpful and courteous

              • Family with children
                5.4

                it was quiet

                the halls had a fowl food smell and the fire doors, several to get to room, were excessively heavy and annoying. you had to use all of your weight to open them. the rooms are like closets. the breakfast was like vending machine food. they wanted to charge 4% interest on AMEX. and they charged all nights up front. plus we came late and they had already charged the first night and would not take it off of credit card for several days and still charged the three nights. some staff charged for water and some did not. since they insisted on all nights up front we were basically forced to stay because we already paid. very annoying.

              • Couple
                7.8

                The bedroom (#19) is small, but that was no problem at all: we did not stay inside the hotel during the whole day. The bedroom is clean and has a very small bathroom/toilet. There is not much space for luggage, bags and other stuffs - this was the only "con". The free internet connection was not fast, but it was "free" (I.E. included in the price) and we could read and send emails and make Skype calls. The attendants were polite, helpful and friendly. Even though everything was a bit tight in the place, I would definitely recommend this place for those who do not seek luxury, but a quiet and clean space to sleep and rest at night, after a long walk during the day - the hotel is close to West Kensington Station, which makes everything easier. The price was surely worthwhile, at least for London standards.

                A small fridge inside the bedroom would be appreciable (at least to keep water and fruits cold during the whole stay).

              • Couple
                7.8

                The hotel was very welcoming when we arrived, it has a sweet little front terrace which was nice to sit in whilst planning our afternoon. The hotel was very clean and receptionist polite. The room was small but this was to be expected based on reading the reviews, it is a base to go into London from in a nice quite street. The only comment I would make is the blinds are white and so the sun beaming in through the window woke us up at 6am, perhaps we are used to black out blinds at home.But thank you for a pleasant stay.

              • Couple
                3.8

                Kept waiting upon arrival. When finally staff appeared the member on duty didn't even apoogise for our wait. The member off staff who actually checked us in was in jeans and a tshirt and looked like any other hotel guest. His attire was the same for the whole trip. Upon reaching the third floor, we were greeted by two grimy stained discarded mattresses outside the elevator, which remained there the entire trip. The room itself was reasonably clean, however the blinds were ripped and held together by sewing needles. Not exactly health and safety concious or attractive. The ceilings had obviously just been painted however the mould underneath had not been covered, leaving a stained unattractive look. That all said the bathroom itself was very clean and for the size of the room we were impressed to find a bath.
