Do not book this hotel. Filthy, horrible. There are no redeeming features. I spent 3 hrs looking for any other hotel under £200 but there isn't one so roughing it. I don't believe it has ever been cleaned. Dirty carpet, dirty bedside table, cobwebs, dust, dirt.

Despite being greeted by a really helpful an lovely staff member, the rooms were unsettlingly dusty and dirty. There were no proper sheets leaving me waking up on a bare mattress. Wifi is £2.50 per day per device. Good location but not worth it.

I stayed here due to having difficulty in finding a cheapish hotel at short notice and chose this particular place as a colleague recommended it. All I can say is she obviously didn't get allocated a basement room! I'm sure the larger rooms upstairs are very pleasant but the hotel owner would benefit from closing the basement level for a...

I was basically there for just one night as a place to lay my head and chose it because of its location near all the clubs and bars of central London. I didn't like that you had to constantly leave your key into reception. The room was small but wasn't bothered as it was a puffy pillow so could sleep...

We were having trouble finding a hotel where our teen age son could stay with us in one room. This was listed in Fodor's travel guide so w assumed it was ok. It was a twisty narrow staircase to third floor, with no fire escape. Three twin beds in one room. Only one of us could open our suitcase at...

Bearing in mind a lot of London Hotels in Theatre District are around £250.00 + for a double room to pay £139.00 you get what you pay for. We stayed in a room with 1 double and 1 single bed, 2 mirrors that were actually filthy and a tiny Bathroom/Shower which was about the size of a standard shower cubicle....

Stayed at the hotel as it was close to the train station. Staff seemed friendly to begin with. They walked the walk and talked the talk yet failed to help us out when we asked questions. Room extremely small for a triple room and toilet even smaller. Pillow cases ripped and dirty. Room in general could have done with a...

The location of the Guest House is really good. Otherwise it is very basic. Our room was small but clean. Wifi worked only in one device. Breakfast was basic too. Our room was peaceful. Not recommend this for families.

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
