            6.2

            The room was very quiet. We just went to the bar to ask for an ice bucket and the barman was very nice. We decided to ask him a few questions as he was more helpfull than the receptionists. He even told us the results of the football match and gave us some advice about where to go out when he was out of dutty!! The wifi area and bar is very modern and stylist.

            Every time you go out you need to leave the room key in reception. When we ask for it to go back to the room the 3 or 4 different receptionists we saw NEVER ask for our names to check that was actually our room!!we could get somebodies key if we wanted! We booked a superior double which supose to have a king bed. We knew hotels always put 2 single beds together but in this hotel they were not very well zipped and after a few minutes in bed there was a 5 cm hole in between me and my boyfriend which was very unconfortable.

            Unfortunately I can only mention that the location is positive.

            I am sorry to mention this but I would not recommend this to any one. This was below standards.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Smart hotel, good style, friendly atmosphere.

            Quite expensive for one room. Outdated television didn't work so had to buy broadband at £8+. Free broadband should be standard.

          • Couple
            5.0

            our room was right on the main road, it was noisy all night could not get to sleep. had to buy ear plugs for the following night.

          • Single
            9.6

            Everything I have ticked above. I shall certainly stay in this hotel again, assuming the prices remain as competitive as they were when I stayed. Very comfortable and the Continental breakfast was perfectly adequate.

            Given the price, I really can't think of anything!

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Location was very good, very close to station.

            Although the room was clean and spacious the hallways were in very poor condition, carpet worn and they were very narrow making it very difficult to navigate with suitcases. It also was quite smelly. For a short stop over it was good value though.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Triple room were we stayed was really large to accomodate three people.Staff at reception competent and friendly..Hotel close to Underground and perfect location if you want to walk to the centre.

            Staff working at caffetteria were really unpleasant. Continental breakfast very poor.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            It was very easy to get around London and very close to the underground and bus routes. The Hotel was comfortable and clean and very quiet which was what we asked for. The staff were very polite and helpful on how to get around London.

            The continental breakfast was not very good value!!!!!

          • Older travelers

            Location

            The place is like a hostel than a hotel. It is 2 star rated. Rooms are small and services very basic. Some rooms hardly have sunshine . It is over priced.we only stayed there for its position.

          • Single
            7.0

            Location, and near to ground station, big lounge with internet facility

            They didn't have mini bar in room, which is a must for that kind of hotel, and the safe was on the ground with no possibility to put laptop in it, for it was blocked by the door.

          • Single
            6.4

            Efficeint and convenient to Glouschester Tube Station

            Small room by us standards. High level of street noise and no sound resticiting curtains; needing to change reservation but no flexibility so paid for three nights and stayed two. Missed cut-off for reservatio nchange by less than 12 hours but flexibility

          • Group of friends
            5.0

            The hotel is new, so everything was new and working.

            Bed is too much soft, I had problems with my back spine; I had to wake up during the night and make exercises. Tv is just terrible, too small, too old, bad images, and only a couple of channels. There is no place at all to use the laptop, not a single micro-table. Internet is expensive and signal comes and goes, it is unstable. There is no way to control temperature inside the room.

          • Single
            3.8

            Unfortunately the pictures on Booked.net website did not represent a true image of the hotel facilities and room decoration.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Proximity to Natural History Museum and Gloucester Road Tube Station excellent.

            Bathroom extremely small and shower only worked intermittently - only stayed one night so didn't complain. Triple room booked which was 3 singles placed in one room so fairly cramped. 3 star rather than 4 star hotel in my opinion

          • Single
            6.6

            Very helpful, efficient and friendly staff. Location was excellent.

            A bit disappointed in the room - a lack of what i'd consider 4 star hotel facilities and the bathroom was tiny! I was annoyed that despite having booked 24 hour free cancellation, full payment had been taken for this booking several days before my arrival.
