My first few hours in London were exhausting. I left Manchester Piccadilly Saturday morning and arrived at London Euston two hours later. I suddenly found myself no clear idea of where I was or how to get to my hotel.
Instead of sending me directly from Kings Cross to Chalk Farm on the Northern Line, the directions I got from the hotel …
... 10 mins I guess. The pods never stop moving so to get on you step over as it is still moving. The pods are quite large. Takes about 20 mins to do,the full revolution. Sun had come out so some nice views over the city. Walked back,over another bridge back into the city and wandered around for another hour or so before our feet decided we had had enough for the day. Back to the tube station at Charring Cross and headed back to Earls court and home. Stopped at ...
I don't know if I feel sad or relieved that today was the last full day of our stay in London.
We started the day out with a trip to the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. We went with a tour guide who was highly recommended by Trip Advisor rather than figure it out by ourselves. It was a good decision. Matt from Fun London Tours took us on a 2 hour ...
... few that I had never seen before. A hearty 'well-done’ is given out to Hoki’s friend, Stephen Harris, for the superb job he did in organizing this edition of their twice-annual luncheon.
My travels on the Underground since arriving a week ago have led to a few observations though admittedly my sample size has only been a few trips. First, one never has to wait more than a few minutes for a train. Second, it appears that they ...
... around 9 am & having breakfast & some water & reading a bit. Everyone else seemed to wake up around 10 am. Quite honestly I was a bit worried but once Jon told me what had happened I understood better.
Once the children were fed & dressed we dropped the kids off at Mat & Helen's again & Jon & I set out for Tesco to get a few more things that we didn't get the night before. After dropping off ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
I hated this hotel. The location was terrible, and I remember having lots of issues. It was inexpensive though.

We booked this hotel before we saw the other reviews on the internet.
Me and my wife missed our flight and had to stay one extra night in London.
After viewing last post, I decided to stay this hotel for 3 nights. The size of the room is very good, comparing with most of the hotels I have ever stayed in London. However, as some others have commented, the deco and furnitures of the room are aged, so is the bathroom. I can put up with these since in general the room is clean and everything (shower, lighting, etc) seems to be working properly. What's hard to tolerate is the attitude of some staffs. For instance, I asked in my second day whether I could change my room since the neighbour was very noisy at night, and I was told they can't help me over the phone, and I had to go to the front desk myself. When I checked out, one of the lady staffs served me. I knew she wasn't in good mood as soon as I saw her face-- she didn't have any smile on her face, and sounded very cold. She looked extremely unhappy when I told her I didn't have breakfast which she mis-charged on my credit card. She then threw that paper into bin, but she missed. Surprisingly, she didn't even bother to pick it up, and just left it on the floor. This kind of service is totally unacceptable even for a B&B, not to mention a 3-star hotel.
I booked this hotel for a Saturday night stay through the hotel chain's own website. Even though I had already read all the (very negative) reviews on here, I needed somewhere with a car park in North London and at a reasonable price.
One of the worst....
I can only add my agreements to what others have written. I stayed here for 2 nights, purely because I needed to be in the Hampstead area for work.
I was immediately concerned when I saw the reception area looked like it had not been decorated since the 1970's with their rates displayed with stick-on letters on a board.
The room was small, dirty and had very basic amenities. The bathroom had lots of "silverfish" on the floor (a type of insect found in damp places) and these were also on the bedroom carpet, so I had to keep shoes on at all times.
I was very glad to leave, and would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
Worst hotel ever
This honestly has to be the worst hotel i have ever had the misfortune to stay in. the furniture was shabby, the bed was lumpy and dirty. i was kept awake by noisy people having a party until 3am in the morning in the next room, despite complaining to reception.
this hotel is stuck in a time warp and needs to be demolished.
dont stay here if you dont have to - i have seen better hostels.
We chose this hotel primarily because of its location
How our trip was ruined, and we were ROBBED due to staff carelessness and continue to be robbed through management callousness.
Good location, but loud and not very clean
We got a discount by booking the rooms over the internet. At that time (Nov. 2003) the hotel advertised as a quiet location which it is not at all, as actually next to a main road and opposite a bus stop. The furniture is OK but old. The rooms were not very clean and the personnel at the front desk neither helpful nor friendly. The hotel is located in walking distance to Chalk Farm tube station though, which is a plus. All in all I cannot recommend the hotel.
Good Location - poor food
Good location with that rarity in London - a car park. Rooms abit shabby but if you get a discount price they are good value for London. Food poor and overpriced (dont have breakfast - £10).
Good restaurants around the corner plus a breakfast bakery.
