Don't go to this Hotel!!!!
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights with some Spanish friends who had never been to the UK previously. the hotel is a disgrace, the rooms are small, our door looked as if someone had kicked it in previously, the shower room was horrible, black mould all over the grout of the tiles, the shower room was tiny, the TV did not work, the carpets were badly stained, the whole place was in disrepair and the breakfast was pitiful. On top of this the area where it is located is very run down and I would not want to have to walk around it alone at night.
Please do not stay here, pay a little more and get a better hotel.
Furchtbar, NIE wieder, da bleib ich eher zu Hause!!
Fazit: NIE wieder dieses Hotel...und es hat unser Bild von London so nachhaltig geprägt, dass wir auch da NIE wieder hinmüssen. Ich hab' Ausschlag und Durchfall und war noch nie in meinem Leben so froh, wieder zu Hause zu sein. Ein Luxushotel kann man natürlich auch für 288€ im Doppelzimmer für 4 Nächte zumindest in London nicht erwarten, obwohl auch das schon schade ist, aber ETWAS Sauberkeit wäre schon angebracht. Das Gegenteil mussten wir leider so schmerzlich erfahren, dass wir sogar auf öffentlichen Toiletten waren, weil es im Hotel einfach zu eklig war. Tiere in der Dusche und am Bett, ein lebender Duschvorhang, allgegenwärtiger Schimmel und ein Gestank, der nicht auszuhalten war, vom ekelhaften Bettzeug und nicht gerade hygenischen Handtüchern ganz zu schweigen...das Frühstück war die reinste Katastrophe, statt Kakao Abwasserbrühe....hätten wir da 'was gegessen, dann wäre der Arztbesuch vorprogammiert gewesen....also: alles in allem: FURCHTBAR! Zudem: Extrem unsicher, sowohl in Bezug auf klapprige Fenster und die Türverriegelung, die eigentlich keine darstellte. Und gerade in diesem extrem kriminellen Viertel sollte darauf etwas Wert gelegt werden. Der Krach war auch kaum auszuhalten....Leute, bleibt zu Hause oder gewinnt im Lotto oder schlaft in der Tube, aber NIEMALS in dieser Stinkebude! PS: Erst als wir zu Hause Bilder gezeigt haben, sind wir richtig ernst genommen worden mit dem, was wir erzählt haben. Auch wenn man zunächst denkt, wir übertreiben maßlos, glaubt uns zu Eurem Besten. Wir haben nicht übertrieben!!!
Eklig, dreckig, aber freundlich!
Als wir im Hotel ankamen, schlug uns schon an der Eingangstür ein sehr urinähnlicher Gestank in die Nase. Das Zimmer war zwar geräumig, von Hygiene jedoch keine Spur. Aufgrund des fatalen Zustandes des Bades weigerte ich mich drei Tage lang die Dusche zu benutzen: von der Decke wucherte der Schimmel und der Plastik-Türknauf war von der hohen Luftfeuchtigkeit (kein Fenster und ein nicht funktionstüchtiger Ventilator im Bad!!) so aufgequollen und schmierig, dass man ihn nicht anfassen konnte. Die Toilette war innen mit einem leckeren braunen Rand versehen, was darauf hinweist, dass sie wohl schon sehr lange nicht mehr gereinigt wurde, ganz zu schweigen vom Rest des Badezimmers. Wer außerdem Wert auf hygienische Bettwäsche legt sollte seine eigene mitbringen.
Als Ausgleich für die menschenunwürdigen Bedingungen im Zimmer war die Rezeptionsdame jedoch ausgesprochen nett, freundlich, hilfsbereit und stand zu jeder Uhrzeit zur Verfügung.
Kurz: Hygienische Bedingungen wie auf einer Bahnhofstoilette, aber wenigstens freundliches Personal.
Meiner Meinung nach kann man aber -auch bei "Billighotels"- eine gewisse minimale Sauberkeit erwarten, hier aber nicht und deshalb würde ich niemandem raten dieses Hotel zu besuchen, man findet auch was anderes günstiges. MfG
Hotel 2 stelle economico e pulito, ben collegato.
Hotel di livello economico, ma più che dignitoso, visti gli standard nella stessa categoria a Londra. Ben collegato da Metro (Finsbury Park station) a 300m. circa e autobus, si trova in zona 2, di fronte a un grande parco verde.
La zona in cui si trova l'hotel non è particolarmente turistica ed è frequentata e abitata da una umanità abbastanza varia, cosa che potrebbe sconcertare alcuni, ma fà si che ci siano molti negozi in cui procurarsi cibo, telefonate low cost ecc.
Le camere che danno sulla strada principale godono di una bella vista sul parco ma soffrono un pò il caos della strada, molto trafficata. Le dimensioni della stanza sono state superiori alle aspettative, circa 12mq, con due ampie finestre, tavolo, armadio, culla-lettino. La TV è stata quasi inutilizzabile, visti i pochi canali disponibili. Il bagno, veramente piccolo, era comunque pulito. Lavabo con rubinetti separati all'inglese, un incubo da utilizzare. Doccia perfettamente funzionante e con acqua a volontà.
Colazione migliorabile. Viene servita in un edificio distante dall'hotel circa 50m. A disposizione bevande calde, succo d'arancia, fette tostate, cereali e formaggio. Optional colazione all'inglese con uova e bacon per 3 pound.
Il giorno della partenza il gentilissimo staff del check-in ci ha permesso di lasciare i bagagli oltre l'orario di check-out.
Il giudizio complessivo sull'hotel è più che sufficiente, in proporzione al prezzo pagato e allo standard degli hotel londinesi.
At least I've learned one lesson from this - if you stay in London don't be tempted by budget hotels!
Where to start...the room was very small and basic - cheap carpets complete with burn mark, broken headboard, tatty walls and skirtings, cracked cup, a television that was impossible to watch, inaccessible power points and the shower room was absolutely disgusting! Cracked tiles with old and stained grouting and a sink that was so small you couldn't get the kettle in to fill it.
I also had to virtually make the bed myself and the quilt cover was very old and thin, but on a good point, the sheets and towels were very clean.
Not so bad
Not the Ritz but still good value. Reception desk a bit slapdash, lift out of order, room facing the park on second floor small but ok, ditto bathroom. No noise problems. Breakfast adequate for older people who don't want to clog their arteries with a 'full English'. The district was multicultural and therefore interesting. Overall: you get what you pay for, and fifty quid doesn't go far in London nowadays, does it?

Hated It !!
Stayed one night here NEVER AGAIN. Couldn't sleep for the traffic noise which went on all night. The room and bathroom was cleanish but not nicely decorated.To get to breakfast we had to go across a yard through the car park and across another yard. It was not worth it breakfast was corn flakes and a choice of either brown or white bread which could be toasted. There was orange juice, tea and coffee.
Do Not Stay Here!!
I stayed at this hotel for the weekend, after walking through a dodgy area we finally found the hotel (approx 5/10 mins walk from the tube).
The hotel reception staff were not particularly helpful nor were they that polite. The room was hurrendous, it was tiny and very dirty. The bedsheets and towels were an off shade of white and looked liked they had seen better days. The crockery was dirty & the TV did not have an ariel. The bathroom looked like it had not been cleaned in weeks, very dirty. The shower was so small, there was not enough room to turn around and the hot water was hit and miss! I would not reccommend this hotel at all. For the price you would at least expect the basics!!
Hated the stay
The room was extremely small (about 2m x 3m, including the toilet and shower). The toilet flusher did not work, and they were having problems with their drains. The tea cup and towels were never washed nor changed. Sometimes the bed was also not made. Breakfast, apart from tea and coffee, consisted merely of cereal, toast and juice. And no, there is no satelite tv. I would not recommend the place.
A simple hotel can fulfill a short stay requirement
I spent in 3 separate days in this hotel during my stay in London. The hotel is very close to the metro station Finsbury Park, which can be easily access via Piccadily line and Victoria line. But the whole area is at the suburb of the city, so may seems not as secure and good as the downtown.
The breakfast is very simple as it is mentioned on the website I booked from. I couldn't find anything other than bread to eat. The beverage is also limited.
The room is small with a tiny bathroom. The equipment is also simple. The TV set is not cable connected, so only a small number of channels are acceptable and the quality of the image depends on the position of your room heavily.
Maybe it is a seldom case. It was so noisy, like a party is held in the lobby, in the first night I stayed. I was waken several time during that night. People didn't stop singing and talking until 2am in the morning.
The room of my last night was in the basement. The heating equipment was not turned on when I checked in. But the shower room is the best one in the three different room in my stay.
Basically, I think hotels are not worth the price in London comparing with the ones in other country. I can get a very good hotel in the same place in other EU country. This hotel is only a choice if you are limited by the budget.

So I arrived in London on the 26th around 6pm after three flights.
One from Tokyo to Fukuoka, Japan. (2 hours)
The next from Fukuoka to Shanghai, China. (2 hours)
The last was from Shanghai to Heathrow Airport in London. (13 hours)
The weather was okay everywhere but Shanghai, where it was raining and our plane dropped us …
... superb. Many of the clocks were running and you see the accuracy, or otherwise, of each design. Even though the museum was crowded with families the watch and clock collection was almost deserted, as young children prefer colour and movement, not the slow tick of a Thomas Tompian clock. The dignified museum attendant appreciated Greg’s joke that he was a clock-watcher. By then I was a wee bit tired of technology so I sat down to consider my blog for the day, happy ...
... commentary. At one point the commentator reminded passengers to take all of their belongings with them when they got off the bus. This included their bags, coats, cameras and, of course, their children. We weren't sure if this was supposed to be a joke or not. After a couple of stops, we changed onto the route with the live commentary, which was a lot more personal. Our guide, Steve, was friendly and gave a really interesting commentary. ...

There were 17,000 props made for the Harry Potter movies. Keep firmly in mind the humongous quantity of man(woman)power that went into creating those 17,000 props, not the stage sets, just the props; the single and group meetings devoted to the thinking up of, the design of, the drawing of, the building of, the painting of, the lighting of . . . and then, except for the small number saved ...
Breakfast and free internet. Booked a tour for 2pm at Camden. Walked down to Westminster bridge and over to the London wheel. Did the blue rooster on the way Nina and Richard. No pigeons there, the pest control man was there with his two falcons! Also saw the queens horse guards, will do them properly when we come back, there's a 2hr walking tour that students take. Tried to get on a bus with some money and we were very politely given a free ride to ...
