Budget Hotel for Backpackers

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 21, 2006

This hotel was the gate to salvation for me. My sister just showed up all of a sudden to find her sharing with me my holy mansion 'tiny room'! She was picky about sharing bathrooms with my other housemates and stuff. So i did a quick search for budget hotels that she could afford. Luckily we came across this hotel at a very reasonable price, especially for students who want to roam around London for a week or so.

It's much cheaper to book online. You'll be asked to be a deposit, usually less than 10% of the actual rate. Then you can pay the rest when you arrive. When you arrive, ring the bell, which i find it very traditional in every little hotel i've been too (ie 3 hotels,lol). the receptionist will release it for you. The entrance is secured with some sort of technology, apparently,lol.

The room is really good, tidy and clean. Housekeepers clean it up everyday if you like. The bathroom was small but ok, no tub though. The ventilation was a bit noisy, so make sure to turn off the toilet light, otherwise, no zzzzz.

Breakfast served every morning from 7:30 to 9 sharp! as the waitress would not allow you to eat. I'm not joking! when i came to have some cereals at 8:50, she just came to me and said, 'we're closing at 9'. so i said, 'can't i have anything?' and she just said, 'no'! of course i was late but i didn't know about the schedule...i deserve it anyway.

Our room costs, via online booking £60 for two persons per night inclusive of breakfast. It will cost up to £100 when you pay in cash upon arrival. So always book online.

It was a relief really!

Well, thanks to my sister who just pushed to get to know such a thing;)

-TV

Horrible, bedbugs in the rooms! Avoid it absolutely! Staff horrible saying that I am a liar even after seeing the spots on my face in the morning. Nothing to do there, go away!
