Special place.
Friendly staff. Cheap. Different from others hotels.
Thordur, gb1 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic budget hotel.
For such a cheap stay (£40-50 per night) in London it was amazing. The host was lovely, showed me around the room and full kitchen facilities. I had an en-suite room, but there are cheaper options with shared facilities. If I am in the area again I will definitely book her (which is half the cost and twice as good as most other budget hotels in London).

Friendly, comfortable, clean
Checking in at a busy local pub bar, part of the hotel, felt a bit unusual to start. A warm friendly welcome from the efficient staff immediately made we welcome. The room had obviously been recently updated. A stylish en-suite shower room with top quality fittings had plenty of hot water, and the bed was comfortable. What else do you need.

It was fine, friendly, clean.

Fair 4.0
Not what we expected
Picture is very flattering and misleading. It is rooms off a fairly local pub on a council estate. Rooms are smelly (although bedsheets are clean) and very noisy - with it being a pub...

Very good 8.0
Excellent value for money
We had a triple room, the bed was quite comfy. The bathroom was very small however if you are a lone traveller or young couple that shouldn't matter to much. The lady who checked us in was very polite. The area is in the middle of an estate this may bother some however we had no trouble and the nights were peaceful and quiet. It's about a 15 min walk to the nearest train station and a further 5 mins to the tube. Overall for the cheap price the hotel is great, being one of the cheapest near central London you get a good room that's worth a bit more than what you would pay.
