1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

Room v small and hot. Shower room miniscule and mouldy! Beds horrible, tiny and lumpy. Reception deceptively clean, modern and welcoming, don't be fooled. Will NEVER return.

this hotel is a good option to stay cheap in London. But the rooms with the beds are very small and the tv did not function.

Rooms tiny and cramped. Bathroom minuscule. Mattresses lumpy and hard. We had to pad the bed with extra blankets so we could lie down. Not worth the money. Only good thing was the location. This should not be rated a 3 Star Hotel more like a one star.
Would not recommend or go back. Makes our trust in easytobook dubious.

We booked the Gresham through Expedia's Secret Hotels, so did not know ahead of time what we were getting. The room was tiny, on the 4th floor, so at least it was quiet! That is the most you can really say about it! The room was absolutely tiny... One of us had to sit on the bed if the other one wanted to move around. The TV was located near the ceiling, and due to the size of the room, therefore, you could only watch it if you were lying flat on the bed! You had to climb into the bath in order to put the plug into it, due to the way the shower screen was fixed. There was no plug in the sink, so shaving was difficult! And the bed was terribly uncomfortable. On the positive side, the room was pretty clean and it was a good location. But for the amount we paid, I expected something better. I asked the receptionist if we could change rooms but she said that what we had been allocated was a "standard" double... So dont expect much!

Room Tip: I guess the top floor was a boon as at least you could have the windows open.

I was prepared for everything because of the not so positive reviews and the low price. The carpet in the room should be changed and you can hear every noise from the floor or other rooms. Ideal for citybreaks, great location. The room is ok for sleeping but nothing else. The bathroom was ok but could be renovated or at least a new shower head would be a great idea.
Use the double decker which stops just around the corner to see the Marbe Arch, Trafalgar Square, Oxford Street.
