Fair 4.0
Good location but the corridor and stairs were constantly being played on by children, screaming and incessant noise. There was also constant rumblings from the underground trains that seemed directly below the hotel!

Poor 2.0
Tiny and Uncomfortable!
Extremely small room, tiny bed, toilet, and broken sockets. Not sure how this passes as a hotel room, guess it's not an issue when you have a high demand of tourists!
Adeel, gb1 night business trip
Fair 4.0
Spartan at best
It was a cheap room and I understand that booked at last minute due to an extended meeting. The shower holder was broken so you had to hold the shower in one hand whilst showering. The TV did not work. Only discovered that when I got into bed at 11pm and decided to relax with some TV. The breakfast was Spartan. The coffee - some Nescafe in a sachet and some hot....ish water from a thermos! I decided to go elsewhere and pay for breakfast rather than have my "Free" hotel one. When I complained at reception the next morning the receptionist shrugged and said "Its a one star hotel what did you expect!" So it will be Spartan and things that should work will not necessarily work
ROB, gb1 night business trip
Good 6.0
The bed was so wobbly/rickety, everytime I moved I thought it might break. Very noisy as single room is right next to dorm rooms, doors kept banging all night. Very hot but radiators still on, had to sleep with window wide open.
Sara-Jane, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Excellent value for money
Simple, no-frills hotel at an excellent rate in a great location near Hyde Park. Walls quite thin (we were grateful for considerate fellow guests) but clean and safe with a decent breakfast included. Great bargain in an expensive city.

Very simple check in. Room clean and quiet - will stay again.
Jon, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
a small 'walk up" hotel in a very convenient area. I don't mind the lack of a lift, and I was gone before breakfast. I just wanted a comfy bed and a shower, and that's what I got.

Poor 2.0
Despite great location, Dolphin Inn is not a hotel, it’s a hostel. They put a rollaway bed in a broom room under the stairwell and call it a hotel room. Granted, part of the room room was converted into an open shower. I am 5.5 and 160lb but I could not wash my hair since my elbows touched the walls. The broom room was not filthy but it was not clean-clean at all.
