It was clean and that was about it
David, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Modern budget hotel with very clean rooms and comfortable beds. Top (4th) floor room excellent; 2nd floor room very good. Rooms facing the front suffer from road noise, but the windows eliminate this if closed & the air-con's not too noisy. Reception staff friendly, helpful and professional. Can't comment on the catering, as we ate elsewhere. The area feels slightly 'edgy' at night (& we're from Merseyside). Overall, good value for London & we'd book again if returning to the area.

Didn’t like the area, didn’t feel safe to go out in the night. Lots of activity and noise in the streets outside.
