I was woken up in the middle of the night by the clanking of the giant fan in the corner, beating like a hammer on an anvil. The room was so hot that I was dehydrated and almost delirious; I couldn't help but feel mildly like Martin Sheen in that infamous scene from Apocalypse Now. This is quite possibly the...

Not a great place. Room is small the beds aren't comfy and overall just poor. They are trying to get as many people in as possible to maximise profit. I only went there as local hotels were unavailable. Would not recommend to anyone unless you are deeply desperate.

We arrived at the hotel quite late at night and the whole atmosphere was quite strange. When we first entered the hotel to check in, we were greeted by a fairly nice guy, who just wanted us to pay for the room straight away which we thought was quite unusual, but when we got up the 2 flights of stairs...

When I say "The Hangover" style I mean the scene when they wake-up in the hotel without remembering anything. That is how I felt, but it was just ok since we actually had a night partying and drinking and so forth. We chosed the city view hotel basically because it was cheap (85 pounds for a three bed room), it...

This was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. If you have a little self esteem and respect, please forget about the low price and do not book in here! The showers are absolutely filthy, the breakfast almost made me vomit after the 3rd day( I don`t think the sausage has any meat in it at all...

The bathroom and toilet were horrific and had dirt and grim all around the sink and shower. I actually felt dirtier after the shower. I didnt stay the 2 nights as it was that bad and will never go...

Absolutely terrible, not clean rooms, dirty moldey showers that stank! Really noisy as it feels like the walls are paper thin! Breakfast a waste of time, we had the English breakfast offer, which took 25 mins to come the beans where stone cold, the sausage must of been cooked a week ago and just warmed in the microwave, no bacon...

This place is quite nice, the rooms are a little small but as it is cheap I wasn't expecting a lot. The room had a mini-fridge and Sky TV which was great. Only bad thing is the area looks a little rough.

Rooms I've stayed in in 3rd world countries are better than this hotel. Rude staff. Ridiculously priced for what it is. Disgusting toilet and shower. Photos they have put up look nothing like the rooms.

When staying in London always look for affordable hotels with little fees and optimum location. Near by Bethnal Green Tube and 4 steps from St Pauls Cathedral through central line. Very nice neighborhood and attendants really helpful. The only turnover was the bathrooms, outside the room, but theres some rooms with bathrooms for sure.
