I stayed in a single room at 3rd floor and was woken up at 2am with door banging, laughter and loud talking then another similar episode at 5am. I was heading for a job interview and with such restless night, it was not very advantageous for me. I know it is not the hotel's fault but I feel that staff member should address this issue. Only 1 small bathroom was available. Cheap but is it worth it?

Ik lag met 3 vriendinnen op een kamer voor 4, deze kamer was echter bijzonder klein. Het is moeilijk om rond te lopen in de kamer wanneer er andere mensen aanwezig zijn (hierbij had ik nog het voordeel dat ik de mensen op mijn kamer kende). Het onthaal (en vooral de uitleg hierbij) was verwarrend, aangezien de vrouw slecht Engels sprak. De ligging was echter formidabel, dicht bij een metrostation en 15 minuten wandelen van picadilly circus.

Honestly, probably the worst hotel i've ever stayed at in my life. 1. the location is very noisy. got no sleep the whole night as there were horns honking, sirens going off and drunken lads shouting all night outside. 2. the wifi is only available in the lounge area and none at all in your rooms. 3. the hot water runs out after 2 people shower. i couldn't even shower the 2nd morning; had the tap running for 15 minutes and it was still freezing. 4. no lift. lots of stairs 5. not cheap

Nach unserem Wochenend-Aufenthalt sind wir sehr zufrieden! Die Lage ist einfach perfekt, in zehn Minuten zu Fuß ist man am Trafalgar Square, von wo man viele Sehenswürdigkeiten schnell erreichen kann. Auch am Piccadilly Circus ist man schnell, wenn man z.B. am Abend weg gehen will. Personal ist nett und zuvorkommend, haben eine halbe Stunde zu spät ausgecheckt und konnten unser Gepäck noch einen Tag dort lassen, war alles gar kein Problem. Zimmer und Frühstück sind auch in Ordnung.

Der Preis ist für diese Art Unterkunft relativ hoch, leider ist der einzige Grund der diesen hohen Preis rechtfertigt die gute Lage. Die Zimmer waren nicht wirklich sauber, das Personal nicht sonderlich freundlich und die Sanitären Anlagen haben ihre besten Zeiten auch bereits hinter sich. Ich schlage vor, Preis runter oder investieren und etwas verbessern, Danke!

I had a single room with shared toilet and shower on the 5th floor. The room was very clean and the showers and toilets in the hallway were cleaned several times a day. Water was hot and great water pressure. The breakfast was good. The location was the absolute best. Across the street from several plays I saw. It is also right on the main street and walking distance to the Tube. You could not ask for a better place to stay. I stayed 3 nights and the place was very quiet and clean. Great place!!

There is no wi-fi in the rooms, only in the bar at the ground floor. In my floor the shower was only cold!
