The room was very small but that didn't bother me that much as I only went there to sleep. However, the room was only heated with a portable heater and only one out of two electric socket worked so I had to unplug the tv in order to charge my phone during the night and have the heater plugged in...

Rooms are extremely small, imagine you book a double room and you are in with 2 people, the space in square meter where can move between bed and bathroom is max 3 m2 only... The good thing is the bathrooms are compared with the rest of the hotel quiet new.

Stayed here for 1 night before starting a tour, I wanted something close to the tour starting point and not to expensive. As the saying goes you get what you pay for. The room was extremely small, even by London standards, you could not have fit another adult plus luggage in this room. I literally had to hop on the...

Honestly for the price and location this place is amazing. I had a single bed room and it was perfect. The price was comparable to hostels with 4 or more roommates and didn't offers a private shower (albeit a particularly Minos use one). Plus the breakfast was pretty good too and you're a stone throw away from Earl's Court Underground....

I did however go to reception & ask for a heater, which was brought up to me within 20 mins. I stayed in room 203 and although...
