After reading other reviews I was dreading staying here but as we were just wanting somewhere to crash after going to the 02 arena we decided to chance it.Checked in and was given a top floor room with en suite.It was boiling hot, window was already open, train track outside.There was a mattress and fan outside on the landing.Bed linen was clean, as was toilet.Room looked like it had recently been painted.Carpet minging.Flat screen tv in good working order.Fridge in good working order.Kettle probably in good working order but didnt try it as there were no cups,milk,teabags etc.Dont really know why they were there!We left our bag and on our way out asked if it was possible to have a fan in room.Smiley man said yes.When we came back he brought a fan up to our room.We had it on all night it was so hot.Trains went by approx every 15mins up until about 1.15am and then they stopped until sometime after 8.I was expecting them all night after previous reviews but this was not the case.Also they did not 'shake the room'.Ideal location next to tube station.Bed was quite firm but slept ok(was knackered from a long day of travelling and drinking)
Woke in the morning, got in shower, bath clean but dots of black mould all over shower curtain.Hot shower.
Partner got in shower, covered in foamy soap suds, water ran out!No water !!!Had to go down to tell reception.Man came up to room and gave us a key for another room to go and rinse off in.Partner toddles off in his towel to other room, unlocks the door and walks into a naked woman!! He came back a bit sharpish and i had to go and see what was happening.Got to other room and reception man was there with another bloke and this woman was sticking her head out of the door.I told him it was somebodies room and he said 'it is fine,she will go downstairs and take some tea then we can use shower, it is an emergency'.
I went back to get partner and he insisted i go with him to the other room incase of more funny business.We went in room and there were suitcases, the headboard was hanging off the wall, the bath had mould all around the edge , i was glad we didnt have that room.Someone was obviously staying in there though!.We went back to our room got our stuff together and left avoiding the breakfast although there seemed to be a few people having it.Didnt see what it was like though.Oh and forgot to mention the wall to wall carpeting all along the entrance hall and up the stairs, must have cost a fortune, a sight to behold.A very amusing experience overall but i will not be returning!
