Lindo y barato hotel, buena ubicación, algunos conserjes simpáticos, lastima que no tiene ascensor. Tuvimos que subir al cuarto piso con valijas y bolsos a cuestas por esas diminutas escaleras.

Shocking, loud and dirty
we are shocked at our experience as it was so dirty which we did not expect. there is loud noise always because of mainly young people who are the guests. the terrible smells and filthy rooms and bathrooms were unpleasant. we will never come back to this hotel. the equipments and fitments need to be changed also as they are all very cheap and in bad conditions. the security seems to be a problem as many people (strangers) from the street were following the young girls inside to talk with them. the owner who is Nicos Ladas is reserved maybe because he must see daily the disappointment of our faces. we could see that many drunk people are inside at night which is not good.
Clean with a good price tag
I just completed a 3 nights stay at this hotel and I would like to reiterate the fact that this is a budget hotel! The most imporant thing about this hotel is that it was clean AND inexpensive. You do, in most ways, get what you pay for, breakfast is just 2 rolls but you can't expect 5-star service at a 1-star price.
It is definitely much smaller than most people are used to but you need to remember that this is London, England and they don't have space to have a giant room with a spacious bathroom.
I did however enjoy my stay and for the budget traveler who understands that they are not staying at the Ritz I would definitely recommend this hotel. I would stay here again, it beats a 16 bed hostel!!!
Great for a budget traveller!
I thought this was a great deal. I payed 30 pounds for a single room and received a triple room at no extra cost. The room was tight, but clean, and the bathroom was your standard tiny European bathroom. The staff were friendly enough, and the location was superb for sightseeing.
Student Budget Hostel Type Accomodation
This is more like a hostel than a hotel. Staff are nice, but our room was antiquated. The bunk beds had graffitti all over them. The en-suite was a pre-fabricated 3' square self contained unit. When you had a shower the entire inside of the en-suite was showered too. The smell that emanated into the bedroom was awful. We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food. At least it was centrally located. Great shops nearby.
Not bad, but nothing out of this world. I stayed there for 3 nights in november I don't recommend you the last floor, it's an odissey to get there, you end up breathless...!I was very unlucky because my bathroom contentrated all the nasty smells of the building. Nice staff, horrible breakfast (pls, have breakfast somewhere else...), but not all is bad...: very well located, closed to shops, cinemas, post office, underground station.
friendly staff, no luxury, small beds, but good for a nights sleep only, located in a beautiful part of London.
THIS HOTEL WAS JSUT OK
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights end of May 2004. It was OK , clean and central, the street was a bit noisy, the staff were OK, not very friendly. If you get sent to the annexe buidling make sure you don't have heavy cases to lift up the flights of stairs as we did, (no lifts).
Just OK for the money i suppose.
Ok for a budget traveller
I stayed at Lords Hotel for a week in May. It was pretty much what I expected; it wasn't expensive (for a single room 63 euros/night), I slept well, had my own privacy, breakfast was modest but ok for a student who is not too picky and my room also had wc and shower. (For a Finn used to triple glass windows the draft and street noise through single glass window was a bit annoying. Luckily it was summer...)
Since I wanted cheap accommodation but wasn't willing to stay in a youth hostel, Lords Hotel filled my expectations. For someone used to luxury it's definitely a wrong choice.
Expect not too much
Okay, Lords is a descent small hotel in the lively area of London Bayswater. But the building needs a quick makeover, because the paint is blattering, the beds are small (for Western Europeans) and the bathroom is too tiny for a washing-smurf. But in a positive view, the staff is pretty friendly and the price is okay. Expect not too much and you will take the hotelquality for granted and will enjoy the best city in the world!

... and a beer for £6.50 (super cheap) then headed to a massive Westfield in a place called Shepherds Market. Simmo bought the most as he decided he wanted to update his wardrobe hehehe... He did well! After the shops we hightailed it into town to Tower Hill to start a Jack the Ripper Tour... We literally power walked the whole way so we wouldn't miss the tour... And we got there in plenty of time.... 'High fives'. This tour was really interesting we walked through the streets ...

And we found out our beloved Mrs. Beasley doll (AKA Anne Holderread from Seattle) was visiting her friend Darren. We met up with them on her birthday and had dinner and drinks. It's always fun to run into someone you know in another country.
Our first night in town, we stopped in the Imperial War Museum, which was right near our place. We had an hour and a half before it closed and we thought ...

In fact, I'm going to blame that for the reason that I caused a several person pile-up on the end of the people mover when my suitcase decided to tip over and the wheels got stuck on the end of the conveyor belt (yup....I was THAT person. Can't take me anywhere). I can still here Aly yelling "pile up, PILE up" to warn the innocent bystanders behind her as she and Leonie came careening towards ...
Was an early start this morning to get to Stratford where I had arranged to meet Terry and Steve at 10am for Meeting which started at 12 noon. It was a real family breakfast. I had already eaten and others showed up and we finally made our way to Meeting at 11.30. Big crowd there and I was a little nervous about sharing for half an hour. Enjoyed the meeting and was made to feel ...

After a little more shopping in Herald Square we walked back north, stopping to enter Grand Central Terminus. This is a fantastic structure, and is well worth a photo stop, as it takes all the noise of the station and funnels it into the vaulted ceiling to allow normal conversations on the concourse floor.
We then went to the Lego store at ...
