I'll try to keep it short. #1 They should really say that their rooms are REALLY small so its not a shocker when you try to get in. #2 Who gets the idea to wash all the carpets in the hotel at the same time!!, and then you get all the rooms with wet carpet!!! you can't even take off your shoes!!. #3 My room (#7) had a horrible smell coming out of the bathroom!! Why can't they fix that!!. #4 Hairs on the blankets, mold in the bathroom, no high dusting. Clean the f... place you guys!!

My 'room' was a windowless basement cell. I was shocked when I was told this was my room. A thin wall separated me from the share bathroom which was horrible. I've stayed in much better for much less. Staff seemed uninterested and dull. Definitely won't be back.
I booked a single basic room + shared bathroom. It was very (very, very!) small but it was what the description says it was: "a box room". The room was clean, the towel too and the bed was comfortable enough. Bathroom was clean and in this small room I had internet, kettle, tea/coffee/milk, TV and heater! So not bad in my opinion! Location wise, it is just perfect! 5-10 minutes walk to Victoria and lots of restaurant nearby + a massive Sainsbury’s. Good value for money.

The hotel is currently undergoing renovations so there is a bit of mess around but it is restrained. The room wasn't big enough to swing a cat in - the bathroom door didnt even open fully cos it hit the bed. The bathroom had been done up very nicely though. Located about a 5 minute walk from Victoria station so location was great.
2 nights, Shower quite small, but all in all "ok" to stay there to visit London for a short time. Other guests arriving at night had problems (with the staff) to come in, even though their credit card had been charged ... i don´t know what happened, but be a little bit careful anyway ...
It's because I stayed in the single room with private bathroom, I think the average is not bad. But there is a little thing can improve is the room cleanliness.
There was a slight problem with the room not being ready, but the hotel staff were very accommodating and let mehave the room for nothing. Good customer service.
We enjoyed our stay at the chester hotel merely for the location- only a 2min walk from Victoria station and it was around the corner from a sainburies and local cafes/restaurants. Things that weren\'t so great were the shared bathroom which was always dirty and never had any toilet roll as we had to ask for some several times. Also our bedroom was only just big enough to fit a double bed in with room to squeeze around the side (no exageration). The staff weren\'t very helpful and our room was not cleaned before we arrived, all it needed was a hoover. If you are just looking for a bed for a few nights in a great location then this will be fine for you, but not if you want to stay in a decent hotel.
The hostel is a bit hard to find initially. There is a supermarket just around the corner and lots of cafés and restaurants near by. Nice place, just needs to be maintained a bit better.
the room is very small, no space to open my luggage pack.Very thin walls, you can hear people passing your room. The cleaningless is just average. It needs about 15 minutes walk to the victoria station. Frustrated when you see so many hotels closer than yours along the way. And wanted to charge us for storage of luggage when we want to check out and go out for lunch. I was disappointed to get such a room and service with such a cost.
The bathroom and room were on the small side, not a big or fun hostel but good and comfortable for a night. Staff were really nice. Really close to Victoria bus and train stations so very handy if your travelling by train or to the airport the next day.
good location(5min from tube/victoria station), room very small(but bed for 2), television had no connection with aerial, room and bathroom were not so clean, the bathroom was only on ground floor. Staff ok. There was no restriction on entering/exiting hour. Unfortunately someone had the bad idea to paint something somewhere; the smell of fresh paint in the room, very unbeareable. A little bit expensive for what you get(by paying with credit card there was a 3GBP overcharge).
Great place in a great location at great prices! The rooms are lovely and clean, much better than expected! The beds were large, probably twin-sized at least.
Good place to stace, in the centre of London. The cleanliness was not so good, but the staff was excellent.
