    Worst room I ever slept in!

    by

    This was a budget hotel that was run on a shoe string charging you 40 euros a night per person. The room was basic, and I mean that in every sense of the word. The one window that opened out on to a small alleyway had a dirty net curtain pinned up with thumbtacks. A dangerous shower with a broken soap dish that cut my elbow and Roy's thumb. I think that Miriam got away unscathed. A fridge in the room that was connected to electrics into which water dripped from the rooms above. Tea and coffee were provided, matching cups??? nope I don't think so! . No bog roll holder and the cheapest soap and shampoo provided.

    The only good thing about this room was the fact that the linen was clean and it was as clean as could be expected. The continental breakfast was cereals, toast, butter and jam and pots of tea. I didn't spot any yoghurt!

    Unique Quality: Don't be fooled by the brochure and write up. It is nothing like you expect. However, it was cheap and we only stayed one night. It was also convenient for King's Cross Station and the Underground.

    A little bit narrow but near by the station

    by

    This hotel is located in the area near by Kings Cross Station. The room which I had stayed is very narrow. However, soap, shampoo, towels available. Moreover, you can drink coffee and tea by free. local TVs are available. Cleaning services are not available. You have to go to the cleaning shop near by the hotel, or you have to go to the laundry store which is located from the hotel for ten minutes. Breakfast is included.

    Unique Quality: N/A

    Directions: Kings Cross, London

RE: bed and breakfast

You can try the Arriva hotel on my London page... all details there. It's cheap and not luxurious at ALL, but you might be wanting to save money in which case it might do you.

For slightly more expensive and higher standard you might try the Travelodge chain. The one I saw was very Central, right in the heart of London.

Another alternative but a bit more is the Blandford Hotel which is on a quiet street about 2 blocks from the Baker Street tube. We found it very nice with a really good breakfast. You can see my London page or their website at:
