    Staff are always SO lovely here that it makes me happy every time I stay. You could not get a better location either. On a personal note, it is extra special when I happen to get to stay in my favourite room here, which though it may not be your favourite room, to me it now feels like my little London home from home. There is help yourself breakfast as well. Just cereal, toast and pancakes so it is simple but enjoyable and an extra bonus that this is offered in an inexpensive, central place in London. And you cannot get a better location. You're right next door to the Savoy and within short walking distance of all of the theatres and the river and Southbank. And there is free wifi in the breakfast room. (I think it reaches to some of the accommodation rooms too maybe? I'm not totally sure.) If you're looking for a basic but welcoming and clean place to stay that offers a breakfast to fill you up and super-easy access to all of London (you'll definitely save on your tube costs if you stay here), you can't get better! If you're going to spend ages in your hotel room and want a telly and 5-star-luxury, book somewhere else. :)

    You're not paying for super-luxury accommodation. The rooms are clean and recently have a few lovely additional touches but while they are not super-old like some places in London, they are not new and I'd say are equivalent to university rooms, which is great from my perspective, but it is up to you to judge what you seek in your accommodation. Facilities are shared and again not the newest, but there are toilets and showers (and on some floors, baths) so you have all you need. Everything is cleaned every day, so beyond that it merely depends on your fellow guests!

    Location & inclusion of breakfast of sorts

    Severe neglect of property maintenance. It is sooooo obvious! In the bathrooms.... everywhere there could be a leak, it's been leaking for ages. Are they waiting for the place to fall in? Basin tap in non-en suite bathroom caked in limescale. For heaven's sake..... if you're a true cheapskate, just vinegar treatment will sort it!! Replace missing grout and renew sealant everywhere, renew privacy locks on toilet doors and thoroughly clean everywhere including the filthy bathroom doors. Maybe the receivers are due and the owners aren't bothered any more. No mattress covers. I asked why not. Answer was 'we don't provide them'. The supplied pillows were useless & heavily stained - enough for rescue dog charities to refuse them. Really? Yes, ever so - really! Not for me. I had to sleep with my clothes on and use the quilt cover as a pillow wrapper. Half-slept dreading the thought of juggling the leaky bathroom in the morning. The supply of promised bathroom toiletries had similalrly long since been exhausted without replenishment - so don't rely on their promises to supply. As for coffee & tea in room: one coffee sachet & one tea bag + milk sample is considerably miserly!! Are you sure this is all you can 'spare'? If so, it endorses the cheapskate business attitude of a slum hotelier so prevalent everywhere else in the building. Shame on you if this is the best you can offer the UK visitor. It's disgusting.
