    I stayed here 4 nights with a friend this past summer while travelling England. It is close to a major "tube" station (Bayswater) and is no more than a 5 minute walk to a main street with tons of little coffee shops, every kind of...More

    We've been there for one night. The double room was clean enough and the location very convenient. The price cheap for the London standard. Friendly staff. The entrance, the corridors, the stairs all spray painted make you feel you are in a squat, and for...More

    *rudest reception and cleaning staff I have ever experienced. * hole in the ceiling= leaking roof * no working wifi *shuttle bus service is not an actual thing * dirty * fire hazards at every turn *excellent location is the slow saving grace.

    Accomodation reflects the price. Do not expect hotel level. It is good for sleep and go. Toilets are ok, room was ok. Reasonable price for London and near to the HydePark. In the basement and first level is wifi for free.
