    There are much better alternatives!

    from

    Close to Euston Station, the impression is not too bad when you book in. The receptionist was nice and friendly, and the place looked bright and clean. The room was a big disappointment though. Dull, cold and badly in need of refurbishment. My room overlooked the street and the noise was horrendous. All night. The bathroom was grotty too, paint peeling from the walls and a decrepit shower (but a nice deep bath and plenty of hot water). You have to leave a deposit if you want to use the room telephone or charge anything to your room. Breakfast was okay. In this day of economy hotels like Travelodge, you can do much better than this place for your money.

    Horrendous!

    from

    Stayed here overnight in November 04. This is by far the worst hotel I have ever had the mis-fortune to stay in!

    The previous reviews on this hotel are absolutely true. My room was small and grim with a musty smell. The window didn't close properly and consequently I was subjected to the noise of the traffic below all night.

    The worst feature by far however, was the bathroom. It was apallingly small - probably the same size as you would expect to find in a caravan. I couldn't even describe it as a 'room'. It had a 'cabin' feel to it - you stepped up into it and the whole thing was made of cheap blue fibreglass. The sink was tiny and the overhead shelf protruded so far it was impossible to wash. There was no bath (you'd never fit one in!) and no shower cubicle as such either - just a slight rim and a plughole, with a curtain rail around it. The shower head was attached to the sink taps.

    All in all, this was not a pleasant stay and I would advise anyone considering this hotel to stay away. There are plenty of hotels in London more deserving and offering better quality. Even a travel lodge would be a better bet.

    Pokey, the worst shower/bathroom ever experienced

    from

    I booked this hotel as a surprise for my partner. It looked a decent hotel upon arriving. However, the clean good carpet finishes at level 1, and turns into a shabby old thing. We asked for a non smoking room, but were given smoking, to be fair they did change the room. Two tiny single beds, a bathroom (but you really cannot call it that) it had a door on it like a fridge door!, inside it was worse than a shower room you would find in a caravan with the shower hose connecting from the hand basin. The rooms did not look anything like the pictures shown on the internet. The staff we found to be polite and helpful however, I would not recommend this hotel I have stayed in better B&B.

    Horrible, horrible, horrible!

    from

    Dreadful. If I could give it 0/5, I would. I stayed here on my own, and found my horrible, poky little room - a double - so claustrophobic that I don't know how two people would manage. One of the walls was very badly affected by damp, and the moulding wallpaper was peeling off. The bathroom was tiny and the shower was just horrible, with a manky old shower curtain that allowed water to flood all over the floor.

    I arrived late at night so I had dinner in the hotel... bland and grossly overpriced. Breakfast was average continental fare.

    Staff were rude and dismissive, and had no interest in moving me to another room, so I packed up and left to find another hotel. Never again.

    Stay Away!

    from

    Were do I start? Pokey, dirty, old fashioned, institutional, hot, noisy, room-serviceless, broken shower, dangerous electrics and pathetic, unresponsive staff.I'm still too annoyed and disgusted by my overnight stay that I can't be more specific. Under no circumstances consider staying at this so called 3 star hotel.

    Appalling

    from

    I was really disgusted by this hotel. The room was dirty, the bathroom was covered in some filthy old linoleum, and the staff were consummately unhelpful, not to mention unversed in the most basic English. If you must go to this hotel, don't use the telephone, because they will really rob you blind for it.

    Absolutely Vile

    from

    I took my boyfriend here for a weekend away. I was appalled. The service was horrendous and the bedrooms were tiny and filthy. It is not easy walking distance to the west end, there is nothing nearby at all. Please do not stay here, there are plenty of good London hotels and this is certainly not one of them.

    Poor value

    from

    I stayed at the Ambassadors Bloomsbury in Feb 2003. Overall I thought this hotel was very bad value, especially for those who come from countries where the currency is not as strong as the pound. You deserve something better for your euros!Our room was small and uninspiring. The bed was extremely comfortable but the room was like an oven - we had to sleep with the window open - not something you would usually do in February in the UK! I woke up several times during the night feeling stiffled by the heat, and keeping the window open meant we heard the noise of the traffic passing below.Stepping in the bathroom was like going back to the eighties. It was really basic and not up to today's standards - not a place where I would want to relax after a busy day in town.The breakfast was generous but pretty stodgy - and expensive if your rate didn;t include it. You can get a far better english breakfast for a third of the price at one of the many student cafes near UCL just down the road. The bar was very unspectacular and I wouldn't like to try the restaurant food in the evening.I was horrified to see how much the rack rate for this hotel was. We stayed here at a very cheap promotional price, so can't really complain, but I would'nt recommend this place to other travellers unless you find a very good deal.As a Londoner, I must say that one of the hotel's redeeming features is its location. Oxford Street, Soho and Covent Garden are within walking distance, the City is not far and the transport connections are good. But I don;t think that location alone merits the price, when there is so much competition from other hotels in the area.

    Decent Value, Bad Service

    from

    The hotel is extremely close to the Euston train and underground, this was a big plus. The rooms were small but reasonably decorated. The bathroom was incredibly small and old looking. The lobby is nicely decorated and they have a lounge. On the day we were departing they forgot our wakeup call and they lady at the front desk didn't really care (or speak much English). We got the room for around USD70 a night so in the end I was quite happy, though safe deposit cost GBP2 and the phone, needless to say, was expensive.

    Ugh!

    from

    This is no 3 star hotel. The smallest room possible coupled with the smallest shower possible made this hotel not worth it.

    ... Islington had the most amazing bakeries and restaurants, I have seen in London. Unable to resist, I sampled muffins at Ottolenghi bakery and I grabbed lunch at Euphorium Bakery. Choosing those two restaurants was the hardest decision to make due to the fact that each restaurant looked absolutely delicious and unique.


    As I finished my initial trip throughout Islington, I began to make my final judgements of the borough. I found ...
