2.0 Poor
Cons:First room had extensive mold in bathroom. Bed linen was old and worn, hallways smelled of dampness. I have pixs which night manager was not interested in seeing and was VERY RUDE! No living person should have been put there!! Next room was ok. Breakfast was very limited and crowded and noisy. U had to pay extra £5 for eggs and bacon, usually cold. We were told hotel chain was biggest in Europe and I’ll add WORSE in Europe. Will never book hotel on internet again because I had no recourse to get my money back!!! I will only call hotel directly and pay AFTER my stay , so if I’m not happy I can go elsewhere. PS, hotel dining room resembled “Grade school cafeteria, hall pass was issued that you had to show to get in”
6.0 Okay
Pros:there is no choices
5.1 Fair
Pros:The price was good. It's close to the train station.
Cons:Avoid the breakfast at all cost! It's not worth it at all: bad coffee, terrible toast, lack of any pastry, and you have to pay extra for scramble eggs. The location is not good neither to take the tube.
7.7 Good
Pros:The price is good and is close to the subway station and near many important places
Cons:There is not internet and the doors make a lot of noice when they get closed.
2.5 Poor
Pros:The only thing i liked about it, it is close to Russel square underground station
Cons:Stuff unfriendly, rooms are unclean with bad view and some electric power sources are not working, WiFi is not available in the rooms and i have to go down to restaurant to get a signal. Breakfast was of very low quality
