We booked this hotel the night before over the net as a last minute thing. I work in London and rarely get to go out and enjoy this fun city.

Breakfast was served from I think 7.30 to 9.30, this we missed as me and my brother were feeling the effects of a lively evening the night before! Apparently breakfast is ok but nothing special.

We booked this hotel because the location I knew was very good, right behind the British museum and minutes away from Oxford street and Soho etc.

Cleanliness was better than I expected as we had read some awful reviews on this hotel. Our room was clean enough nothing special but ok I did find some crisps under my bed from the previous tenant though. The showers and toilets were communal but fine and weren't dirty.

Staff were ok informative etc, can't see them jumping through hoops and whistling Dixie though.

As for entertainment, we made our own in the great night life of London.

This hotel has had some horrific reviews in the past, it's not that bad, it is very much in the need of modernisation and re-decorating though. Its all a bit 70's in there.

I probably wouldn't stay here again, I would rather pay more and or book earlier to get a better more comfortable hotel or b&b. Having said that if you do decide to book here it is ok as long as you remember it's a budget hotel (having said that 58 quid a night for a twin isn't exactly cheap, but hey that is considered budget in London) if you want a bed for the night this will do the job.
