2/5

    I have stayed a few times but this last one was the noisiest room I have ever stayed in. I don't know what was outside the window but it sounded like the air conditioning for the whole of the London underground. Absolute racket all night long so barely any sleep. Also, what annoyed me was I asked reception if I could borrow a spoon and was told, we don't have spoons so I wonder how people managed to eat their cereal at breakfast, maybe they have to eat direct from the bowl.

    The best thing about this hotel was its close proximity to the tube and shops around. I've stayed here a number of times prior 2015, which is why i I rebooked here for my daughters 1st trip to Landon now she's 4. The receptionist took 2 calls whilst i he was checking us in. Our room was small which was fine as we would not be in long, there was black mold on the inside walls to balcony and my bed was right next to this. The room had not been hovered for however long. On a morning the corridors stunk of someone smoking.

    The style of the room was lovely. The condition was great though. Unfortunately the curtains were hanging off the hinges, the wallpaper was also coming off and ripped in some places. It was like as it seems in the picture. I payed a lot of money for the hotel and it was dissapointing. I would not recommend unless you are looking for a cheap one night stay

    Location is good, but hotel condition is bad. Curtain broken, air-conditioner not working, TV not working. The room is not only small, but also bad layout.
