Positive Reviews

Budget Spot, Good Location

Wonderfully located at a great price, especially suitable to students, young people or those needing only very basic accommodations Close to many attractions and an underground station, perfect for exploring central London Stroll to the British Museum, Russell Square Station and Birbeck University You can check in early or leave your luggage while you visit some sights Grab some breakfast directly downstairs with a guest discount or venture out to see what's good to eat in London The Pitted Olive and 49 Cafe are nearby favourites.

Lovely, Fun Staff

Friendly and helpful, agreeable staff will listen to your needs and assist as much as possible.

Well-Appointed, Basic Rooms

Many rooms are currently under refurbishment or have already been redecorated Spotlessly clean and spacious with cosy duvets and soft linens/towels provided Likely you'll have a good night's rest here Please note that some rooms have private bathrooms, but many are sharing bathrooms with strangers on the same hotel floor Get perfect clarity about the provisions of your room at booking if this is not to your liking.

Negative Reviews

Poor Sound Proofing

Squeaky floorboards and noisy neighbours are an occasional disruption of guest's peace at this locale If this sounds troublesome for you, bring some earplugs or check on booking elsewhere.

More Coffee

There are apparently no tea and coffee making provisions included in some rooms at this hotel This is quite inconvenient for those of us who cannot function without that first cup The accompanying coupon for one hot beverage is lovely, but not when two guests have checked in together.

The Bathroom Situation

Yes, it is made very clear in advance that there are shared bathrooms It is still not a favourite feature Opt for the private en suite bathrooms if you are even slightly squeamish.
