Fabulous 8.6 From 162 reviews

Fair 4.0
Ever heard of Faulty towers?
When we arrived, the receptionist was busy upstairs and asked us to wait. However, the computer monitor is placed facing the door. So, when you are at the reception, you can see who has checked in, in which room and whether they had payed or not. That way, we already knew that we had payed and which room we should be in. After about 10 minutes, he had time to check us in - only to find that we apparently checked-in already. Our room was given to somebody else, because their last name started with the same letter as ours and for him that was confusing. He ran around to find us a room and after some time, he led us to a room in the basement. It was smelly, the windows showed walls, the lock was broken, it was dirty, there were stains and scratches on the walls. Since it was late and we knew they were fully booked, we didn't say anything. At least we had a place to sleep that night. After some time, we identified the source of the smell. It was a tiny basket in the bathroom, which sole purpose was to keep the toilet paper. So, we put it in the staircase and kept the toilet paper in the bathroom at the same place the basket had been before. When we tried to enter the promised wi-fi, we had no connection - probably because we were in the basement. So, we had to sit on the stairs or the breakfast room to be able to get online. Breakfast was ok. No eggs, no fresh fruits though. Also, no receptionist in the morning. You need to leave your keys unattended at the receptionists desk.

Poor 2.0
Could do better
Not so good, arrived and checked in, receptionist told used were in room 1, proceeded to take us upstairs open the already occupied room 3 with room 1's key..then proceeds to tell me room 1's is almost the same as the master key. Room 1 is extremely noisy as it was next to reception and the very loud front door. One of the bathroom down lighters was dangling from the roof on its wire. The wall lamps above the bed were so dusty you could have grown mushrooms on them. Location is on the main road no parking resident permits needed everywhere so don't even consider staying here if you are arriving by car. I appreciate this review is pretty poor but this room cost £116.00 for one night. It was a continental breakfast and was OK. And the breakfast area was clean and well laid out. Staffed by mainly students and bless them they were very pleasant and trying hard.

Exceptional 10.0
We stayed here at the recommendation of the Rick Steve's books and it was a good stay. The staff was able to accommodate us and let us into the room several hours before normal check in, and carried suitcases up the two flights of winding stairs. The room was clean, with a wide bed (seemed bigger than an American "double" bed), an excellent view of the street below due to the large windows, and hot water. The hotel is on the older side, so the shower was on the very small side and one of the windows didn't completely close. Breakfast was very pleasant with an assortment of juices and hot drinks, cereals, toasting breads and bagels, yogurt with toppings, and pastries. We started breakfast a little early because of a train we needed to catch and the staff was very accommodating.

Very good 8.0
Nice location and character
The hotel was a lovely terrace house restored very nicely. Our room was huge with a comfortable bed for us and our daughter, bathroom was a late addition in the room and shower was quite small but fine, Cleanliness was good. Breakfast was adequate but nothing exciting, Only real issue was that we were on the ground floor. Only room on that floor I think, The door had zero sound insulation so every single noise at the front desk or front door was like they were in our room. And of course someone was up talking to the front desk at 5 and people were checking in at 11 or later. That was too bad as a better door or a vestibule into our room would be a simple solution to make that room really nice,

Good 6.0
Clean and quaint, but not quiet nor accessible
The Alfred is decorated in a style which is quaint with beautiful carved moldings, vintage paintings, and winding carved wood stair railings. Our room was very clean, and the staff (maybe college students) were friendly and eager to help. The simple breakfast provided each day was also a perk. However, situated with a pub next door and in front, it was impossible to sleep until the bar crowd went home well after 2 a.m. There is no sound proofing on the windows. Without an elevator/lift, it is a challenge for anyone without a certain level of fitness to climb 2-3 floors each day and haul suitcases up and down the winding stairs. Also the shower while clean and modern had so little water pressure and minimum hot supply that only a brief weak spray was available. There aren't many hotels in the West End, so it is not the best nor the worst choice if you make allowances for the shortcomings.
