Good but”
The staff is nice and helpful The common shower and toilets are more than often not clean, people are not especially clean but I had to go to other toilets than the ones closer to my room. If you have light sleep you can have difficulties to sleep, the 2 firsts night I had 2 asians girls as neighboor I could here them laughing each nights, and the 2 others nights I had italians people as neighboors that were yelling in the corridors at 11PM. Also note that the door are not set properly they slam if you let them and everyone just let them slam... Anyway for the price that was to be expected, in any case I'll book somewhere else next time.

Good location but hostel is too dated”
10 minutes walk from St Pancras International. Walking to West End is doable. Staff is helpful. Hotel is old, no lift, staircase is very steep and narrow so really not suitable for the very young and old. Bed is too small for 2 people (and we are petite). Cleanliness of toilets depends of the guests. When we were there, the toilets were not very clean.

Nice hotel with awesome staff and OK rooms...”
...just don't go for the shared bathrooms; these are small, cold and given the amount of rooms also too few (I am an early bird and never had to wait at 6am, but my mate often waited around 7-8). Also to be noted: the Cafe in the basement is exceptionally nice and friendly, and serves some nice Breakfast :)

Thank you for your cool review Franz. Glad you had a pleasant stay with us overall. We have an estimated bathroom for each 3-4 rooms so the queuing shouldn't be long. But if this is a problem for you, then other guests should follow your advice and book one of our en-suite rooms. Andre

1st London visit”
Got cheap price with Agoda , saved £100 ,with discount they gave. Hotel has best reviews for budget travellers . Good Wi-fi , beds were memory foam that needed changing in room 14 on the double bed. Small ensuite in this room but most rooms use shared bathroom, tried one out but the rads in there not on so very cold and univiting. Sadly biggest let down , no kettle to make a hot drink, when asked it was for “safety reasons”. I can only think then every hotel in the world with kettles is unsafe. A very silly excuse. Hot water can be supplied from reception !!!! So , safe to carry upstairs to make a brew . More unsafe than a kettle. No outside door key, you press bell and they let you in. All in all not bad but if you are used to “normal” hotels with a kettle this isn’t for you .
Reviewed February 13, 2018
Thank you for your review Martin. Despite having had some issues you actually gave us a good classification. Thanks for that. We are a simple hotel with “no-frills” providing cheap accommodation in central London. All of our beds are standard models in the UK but we will have a closer look on that one. Another point we want to be clear for others to read is that all of our rooms have heating inside which you can regulate it how you please; probably that one was turned off at that moment. You’re right to mention there’s no kettles in the rooms this is due to the building's not prepared to that type of voltage, as you could see this is a 200yo building listed as a Georgetown house - we are studying some options regarding to this; but as you rightly said you can get hot boiling water at the reception at any times.

Hotel was very basic. Good location. Room didn't look like the pictures and was very small, but it was clean. The only downside is that we had to carry big luggages up a lot of stairs (like A LOT) since there were no lifts. That was a bit of a struggle and it would've been better if we were informed earlier about it.

Thank you for your review Nwe. You’re right to mention we are a basic and cheap hotel in the very expensive Central London. Sorry to hear that you had a bit of a struggle with your luggage. It says on the booking platform description that there are no lifts. Next time you could ask our staff at the reception to help you, we are always happy to help our guests. Andre

Located at a convenient spot which is just 5-10 minutes walk to metro stations. Nice staff and generally clean room. Soundproof is not expected though. And no lifts can be a bit annoying when carrying heavy luggage with you.

Like a student dorm”
This was quite possibly the worst room I've ever stayed in. In all fairness, it was clean and adequate for a one-night stopover. If you are a deep sleeper and don't have too many expectations about comfort or interior design then this is probably bearable for a very short period of time. I was in a very small room directly on the street and although the street itself wasn't uncharacteristically noisy for central London, I could hear every movement of other people in the building, particularly the person upstairs. I regularly woke up in the night terrified that someone was in my room so thin are the walls and ceilings/floors. I was cold and used the blanket but it had a dusty/musty smell (as did everything else in the room). The bathroom was so tiny that the door didn't properly open because the toilet was in the way. The shower cubicle was also small and miserable. All in all, it felt like going back to my old student halls of residence! This may be because I'm not used to staying in hotels in London, but the amount I paid (£107, and that was with a discount) felt astronomical in relation to what I got. I couldn't actually wait to get out of the place. If you absolutely have to stay in central London try to stay with a friend or do Airbnb if you can because these hotels are an absolute rip-off! The only redeeming factor was the staff. Very friendly and concerned about my experience, which clearly they can do nothing about because 'have you seen the prices of hotels in London?'. Yep. Outrageous.

This is a damning review, I remember speaking to the lady in the morning after her stay, she wasn't happy at all. My only defense is that no other guest has ever complained about the noise in that room before or since, so we could only imagine that she was extra sensitive. Our rooms are small, we don't hide this fact or apologize about it, we're aproudly simple hotel, that's why our rooms are so cheap for central London. The price the lady quoted was for a weekend en-suite double room during high season, anything else in the Bloomsbury area, would have been almost double that amount. Luckily our average score in the reviews is much higher, and should be what people judge us by. Stefan

Thank you for your review Yi. I am very surprised to hear that, as we have several bathrooms throughout the hotel and we are always improving our facilities (maybe that’s why one of them was out of order at the time). Anyway, I can assure you that all of our bathrooms are perfectly functioning at the moment. Hope to see you again when in London. Andre

Good short term hotel”
I stayed at this hotel for one night while transiting. The good... great location near international train station. Very comfortable bed.. one of the best I've slept in. Friendly and helpful staff. The bad... the shower was blocked and water was pooling in both 3rd floor showers. Also no place to hang your clothes and put your toiletries. Obviously staff have never tried showering to identify issues. Also as noted by other guests the stairs are extremely steep to the 3rd floor and it takes a lot of effort to get your stuff to the top. Also they don't give you a key to get into the hotel and the front door is always locked so you need to buzz to get in. A slight annoyance. I would definitely stay here again if the price was cheaper then I paid.

Petit hôtel typique anglais proche du métro Russel Square ! Nous avons eu la chance d'avoir une chambre au calme (mais pas d'eau chaude au lavabo). Pas de douche dans la chambre mais au final ce n'était pas gênant car l'hôtel n'était pas complet, l'accès était donc facile et les sanitaires (douche + WC) sont récents et très propres. Le personnel est sympa. Nice !
