Homophobic! Stay away

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 31, 2012

If you are gay-friendly or gay yourself, stay away from this hotel.

I was harassed by the security guard, Thomas Bodnar, while hanging out in the hotel bar. My wife and I were trying to order a pizza over the phone when the guard came up to us and asked for our hotel key to prove we were actual "hotel patrons". When I brushed him off (as I was trying to order a pizza) he got aggressive, demanding to know if I was a "man or a woman" and started to get very homophobic and rude.

I have honestly never encountered such in-your-face homophobia in all my business travels (I regularly travel to Shanghai and around the world on business). It was a huge surprise to encounter this kind of attitude in what is largely considered a cool, gay-friendly city.

Suggest that anyone that is gay-friendly or gay STAY AWAY from this establishment. The hip marketing belies a very unfriendly underbelly.

I always have my family and friends stay here: very clean, friendly, central, and a good independent design hotel. There can occasionally be loud parties in the lobby but that's all part of being right in the city centre.

Unique Quality: Convenient, good value, design hotel with nice furnishing, free internet.

Directions: Four minutes walk from Old Street Tube, ten minutes walk from Liverpool Street. 243 and 55 buses stop nearby.

my favorite hotel in London

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Finding a room in London is expensive. For some strange reason we found a great offer for this 4 star hotel and although it was the New Year’s Eve we payed 90 euros per night when these days even some hostels with shared bathroom were asking the same money!

The room and the bathroom were clean, big enough, the twin bed was very comfortable and the room had some great colors. There was free wi-fi connection all over the hotel and satellite TV in the room. You can prepare and drink your coffee at the room where they give you for free some different tastes of coffee! The safety box is small but very helpful.

The lobby was nice two, with two fireplaces that were very useful for some relaxing moments. There is also a nice restaurant inside called GRILLE that serves also people that aint customers of the hotel. I checked the menu where I saw normal prices but we never managed to eat there. The staff was very polite and helpful and another small but helpful surprise was that the checkout time was at 12 o’clock.

Unique Quality: Every morning they bring you the breakfast at your door (!) and that includes one fruit, one yogurt and one orange juice. When they clean the room they put one milk (for the coffee) at your fridge!

Directions: It is located at CITY, not far from the center. Take the tube to OLD STREET station, get out from exit 3 and walk along the main road for 3’. You’ll see the hotel at your right.

Nice modern hotel in Old Street/Liverpool Street area. Room was 79 pounds/night. Wide flat screen TV, clean, bathroom had walk in shower. No mini bar but the front desks sells sodas, champagne, etc.

Unique Quality: Nice location close to Tube- modern appearance and very comfortable.

Directions: 5 minutes walk from Old Street Tube (Use Exit 3)
