Historical Traveler Reviews Majestic Hotel London
I stayed at the Majestic this past week for one night. I have never suffered the kind of treatment recerived at this hotel. While some staff were pleasant, most were completely rude. The room was nothing like the picture on the web. And the worst of all: the room door would not lock and when we brought this to the employee's attention, he said he didn't understand and refused to do anything about it. When we asked to see the manager he said there was no manager there, just him and nothing he could do to help us. Not only did the door not lock, but when we managed to get it to lock, it could be opened with the key from another room. According to the employee, this happens in other hotels and it doesn't matter anyway! Treatment was insulting. I would never return there and would not recommend it to anyone!
Ugh. You get what you pay for...and in London, your $ doesn't go far...
I, too, knew that this was a low-cost hotel in London. However, I was truly surprised at just how little my money got me. The room was fairly dirty and the bathroom was not clean. My friend and I had a very sleepless night there -- it was hard to feel comfortable in a dirty room and the mattress was quite hard. Also, you did not have the ability to lock the door from the inside, which made me uneasy since security at the hotel was not high. My advice to anyone staying in London, expect to spend at least 100-200 pounds per night for a standard, clean room in London.
Best Hotel In London - I will be Back
I just return from the majestic hotel in london and it was a pleasant stay. The place is very well located in the very center of London. My room was large for london. The staff was very helpfull with us. And try the restaurant inside the hotel is very good, itilian food you will remember it.
I have recently returned home after spending four nights at the Majestic Hotel in London.
The location of this hotel is central and that is the only recommendation that I can give it.
My advise to everyone is NOT TO GO to this disgusting hotel. It is filthy dirty, the carpets are threadbare, and it is in serious need of painting throughout. Infact the whole place should be condemned and demolished.
I asked to move rooms after I found four flea bites on my leg after one nights stay there.
I had pre-paid in full, and the other local hotels were fully booked. Unfortunately that caused me to have to remain and endure the worst accomodation I have ever had the misfortune to stay in.
No thanks, never again
Booked this dreadful hotel and paid through Hotelweb site. We had airline change of flight and tried unsuccessfully to negotiate Sunday night but to no avail. Very basic room, no hotwater in the evening or morning [how I hate tepid showers], no kettle, nowhere to buy a coffee, uncomfortable beds and grubby room. nights cost 200USD, aroung 250AUD, what a rip off. As I said, never again.
The Majestic is Seedy
I knew I would not be getting much because of the cheap price, but this place was plain dirty. I was also concerned about safty at night because there was no way to bolt the door. I will never stay there again and will never recommend it to anybody.
I endured one night at this horrible hotel. The staff were unpleasant and rude. The room was unclean and incredibly basic. We had to ask for a receipt on a number of occasions and they tried to charge us twice.
This hotel was awful. I had 2 rooms there, neither of them had kettles to make tea, there was no heating or hot water, 1 of the rooms had a smashed window, the floor was dirty with hair. The TV's didnt even Work.
The bar wasnt open.
Breakfast was a joke, you couldnt even have toast, all that was on offer was 2 bags full of crossiants.
They didnt do room service or dinner.
The recepionist was not very helpful at all and the manager would not listen he jsut kept blaming us for the problems.
Basic, but I'd stay there again
Stayed Nov 23-29, 2003. Traveled alone -- small but adequate room.
Basic no-frills accomodation; thin walls; inexpensive package deal through Expedia. EVERYONE on staff was friendly. Checked in early without advance request thanks to desk tracking status of room I was to be assigned. Liked the location -- between the Gloucester Road and Earl's Court tube stations, 3 blocks in either direction. Toward Gloucester tube are: laundromat, pharmacy, grocery & liquor (Waitrose), internet cafe, several places to eat including Marriott across the street, Holiday Inn, Garfunkels, and others.
Cheap & Cheerful
This is a no frills hotel offering excellent rates for those travelling
on a budget. It has all the basic requirements you will need for a trip
to London. Go Enjoy!

I've been plotting a shoe shopping morning in London for a good six months. Just a few blocks from Princes arcade and Jermyn St I was all made up. I dragged the family along, can't decide these things without Gab. We window shopped through half a dozen stores I wanted to visit, Barker (my current boots), Church's, etc but it was Loake that won out. I'd had 4-5 people recommend them, ...
... terms of daily expenditure on food, it's not a huge amount extra, I suppose, for a unique experience. This evening we'll have something just to top up our bellies so we don't wake up starving at 3am, so if we keep that cheap, we'll still be on track. The V&A was free, after all, (although we gave a donation) so apart from Afternoon Tea, it was a really cheap day!
Then we looked through a couple more big-name shops, and came home. The End.

We then cycled out to the Coast near Wells-next-the-Sea, which turned out to be the last glimpse of the North Sea for the trip. After a leisurely picnic lunch, and long chats to the locals, we continued off late afternoon, passing through the quaint pilgrim town of Great Walsingham. It is famed for its religious shrines in honour of the Virgin Mary and ...
