Cosy and within budget place.

For the prices, you should not expect a 5 star experience. The hotel is close to town The room I stayed in was decent size with a decent mattress and bed. The hotel is quiet for most of the day and night. If you are looking for a budget stay and personalized service this is not a bad choice.

Nil star budget hostel advertised as a '2 star Hotel' Stayed from Sept 17-22, 2013 at £86.05 per night PROS - Near shops, buses and the West Kensington tube station / designated smoking area (outside).

Filthy rotting mess!!! DO NOT STAY THERE!!!!

Greeted with the smell of mould and damp. Tiles falling off in the tiny shower which was covered in mildew. Cold water was coming from the shower so I left left it to run for 10 minutes to warm up. Heard a crash coming from the shower so went to investigate...stepped off the bed and the room was flooded due to the blocked shower plug, got to the bathroom and more tiles had fell off the walls. Worst hotel I've stayed in EVER, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
