    The location was very central. The neighbourhood was good. It was warm and dry in the hotel! The room was quite cosy.

    We got the absolute last room in the hotel. To get there you had to take 3 different stairs and go trough several doors and corridors. Didnt seem too fire-safe. The staff werent fluent in english. There was no breakfast. The bathroom/showers were quite dark and dirty. The floor in the hotel was terrible it sloped so that you had difficulties keeping your balance when walking the corridor and you actually were afraid of it giving up under you... The bed was quite uncomfy lacking mattress pad.

    The location was good.

    Very small plastic bathroom with a funny smell! Actually saw a mouse in the bedroom on the second night!

    Checking out. It was not a good experience at all.

    The place was tired and run down. Basic facilities like the sink in the room and the shared bathroom and toilet were functioning but only just. It is not a Hotel. It is a Hostel and should not have a higher rating than that.

    Never got the rooms that I booked , was On the third floor with heavy suitcases and no lift , furniture uncomfortable and falling apart , walls dirty and cracked , overall I was disgusted with the place and it should not be open for business. I would have rather slept in the train station for the night .

    Walls in room were dirty. Was a long walk to use the toilet being communal. Staff didn't seem overly bothered

    The location of the hotel was ideal for where we wanted to be in the city.

    The communal bathroom.

    It was only a short walk from both Holborn and Russell Square Tube Station. The street is a quiet street and easy to find.

    The staff were indifferent and the hotel was very dirty and difficult to navigate.

    Old, dirty rooms with moulded walls and carpets. A risk for your health. Absolutely disgusting.

    Somewhere to stay while in london working, but never slept much as the matress was like a bed of nails.

    I stay in hotels all over the country with my job. This is the most run down discusting place I had ever stayed in. No tea or coffee in the hotel or in the rooms. Woke up to names scrawled on the wall next to bed holes in the wall. Bathroom all plastic with door been patched up after large holes in it. Bed springs showing from top to bottom of bed. Hotel staff wont listen or just cant be bothered. A very nasty experience will not go back there if it was free.

    The hotel is close to the city and it´s cheap. You can take a walk and within 20 Min. You reached the trafalgar square. Further it is located in a very quite neighborhood, near the russel square (a small park). The staff is friendly.The hotel is a good choice for budget travelers, who want´s to stay near the city. The rooms a elementary, bed, locker, wash basin.

    The shared bathrooms and the rooms need renovation.

    We were using this as a stopover to continue our journey the next day, it was cheap compared to other hotels but this was because it was basically a bit of a dump.

    The room, the shower, the bed , the wardrobe, the paint work, the carpet, the window that wouldn't lock, basically it was probably last updated in 1960 and hasn't been changed since. But if your not too fussy, havn't got a lot of cash , and just looking for a bed for 1 night then go for it.

    The room was in a state of disrepair. The sash window nearly came off its rails when we tried to open it, and the cubbyhole that served as a private bathroom was a bit grimy. There was hardly enough room for the two beds and the television was out of order. Sound-proofing was very poor; we could hear other customers peeing next door very distinctly in the middle of the night... Too many drunkards and people with little respect for other customers, which obviously didn't help. Glorious location, though.

    Location is good. It was quiet. Ok for sleeping in, but rooms sparse.

    Wash basin in room lacked a plug!
