05 November 2011

Liked: Nothing (it was that bad)

Disliked: NEVER GOING BACK! - Staff very unfriendly - hotel manager even more unfriendly (and rude). Most of guests are unhappy and look for another accommodation. there are no plates or silvery in the kitchen (you get those against a deposit at the reception) - You also only get a hairdryer against a deposit at the reception - plugs only in the hallways - Kitchen dirty - old fridges always full - They let people gather in front of the hotel - so it's extremely loud in the rooms looking to the front of the hotel. I travel a lot and this was the first time I had such a negative experience.

Liked: The staff is very friendly, also the atmosphere is very friendly! Location is excellent because u are a minute walk away from Hyde park and a minute walk away from underground station with a direct line to the city (Circle line, Central line). I felt realy secur, also u have the option of buying safe for your possession! It is definitely worth of what u pay.

Disliked: Not much to dislike, maybe just the cleanliness of bathroms, but that cant be prevented because if 16 people (a lot of them male) use two bathroms it gets dirty very fast, but you also have bathrooms downstarirs that are spotless!

Liked: Location was good, really close to the subway and several restaurants and supermarkets; beds had curtains which was great for a little more privacy and the rooms were relatively clean

Disliked: Other than the rooms everything was really dirty, toilets and showers were awful; staff was really not friendly; you have to pay extra for all the safes and luggage room; internet lounge is really small you can hardly fit and there is no internet elsewhere; breakfast is kind of bad, coffee and tea are the worst ever and then you only had crappy bread. Pay cash, conversion rates are a rip off really unbelievable
