Small room. Closet size bath. Itchy but comfortable bed.construction going on. No ac so prepare to sweat while sleeping. Also hear your neighbors. Nice area! Except some blocks over the area were a bit scary. But if anything was terrifying it was the elevator.

This hotel was amazing! They are so accommodating. We come the America and had 4 adults, rooming is done differently here than what we are used to back home. The second day Kamila was able to get us 2 double rooms. This hotel is so.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 :
Liked: The hotel is very nice and cosy, the location is very good, lots of metro lines that are 5-10 minutes walk, the Hide Park is around the corner, the district overall is very quite and safe. The room has a kettle for tea, fridge and all the facilities you need.
Disliked: I was very unsatisfied with the room service. We stayed for 4 nights, there was garbage and dirty plates in the room, those never got cleared throughout the whole stay. The shampoo didn't get filled, nor the tea or hot chocolate bags. so whatever you have in the beginning is what you get. I would recommend considering a friendlier and more attentive housekeeping employees. It would be great if the breakfast was not exactly the same thing every single day. When you stay for more than 4 days, it just becomes really unpleasant to eat the same thing every day. I understand that the selection is small but at least every second day you could offer something different.

Liked: Literally the only good thing I have to say about this hotel is that the price was good for the location
Disliked: Bedding smelt like mens aftershave so was not clean? Paint work on ceiling, walls, and radiator clearly needed redoing. Bathroom floors and walls looked old and run down, clean shower though. Breakfast choice is very limited! Tiny sausages and not even any bacon, fried eggs or beans! Fridge in the room made strange popping sound every few minutes, kept me up all night. And room is tiny, as is the bathroom. Can barely move in the bathroom. Lift is also tiny but was not a problem for me. The hotel corridors also looked very run down. There is no view from the bedroom windows, literally cannot see anything. This room is a claustrophobes worst nightmare, and I would much much much rather stay in a premier inn or ibis etc.

Disliked: Our first room had someones luggage in it, and some underwear on the bed. The second room was nice, but a couple of hours later I got a call to come back to the hotel as we had to leave our room as it had a spare bed in it! Our final room was in the basement of the hotel. It was a sweat box. Broken air con unit, fridge light was on but it only kept your stuff warm. Shower door broken too. And the room was opposite the breakfast room so you got woken by hungry people in the morning. I couldn't wait to get home.

Liked: The hotel has a great location just minutes away from the tube or a walk to the main tourist attractions. The breakfast was diverse and plenty, having yougurt, cereals, eggs, sausages, cheese, bread, croissants, etc. The reception and breakfast staff is very nice and helpful to all guests.
Disliked: The room that I booked was not similar to the rooms presented on Booking. The room had an old decor, outdated beddings, yellowing wall painting and there was an overall aged condition of the room. The mattress was quite used and had a sinking feeling in the middle- as seen in the pictures. Overall our stay at the hotel was fine however the pictures online are misleading.

To start we would like to thank Adrain if it was not for him we would have walked out. The day we arrived we were assigned room on the 5 floor. The moment we stepped in we were not happy with the room. All three beds.
