    Just the job
    Down for a funeral. Just the job . Close to underground and buses. Great leisure facilities. Did not eat at the hotel so no idea on food . Would use again

    Nice hotel
    Friendly staff, good location and transport links. Hotel a bit run down (although decoration was in progress) and the layout is needlessly confusing. Very clean, comfortable bed, quiet at night. Recommended.

    Worth considering
    So long as you accept hotel has seen better days then it represents good value for money. Central with decent amenities nearby. Staff friendly and helpful. Food and drink reasonably priced

    You Get What You Pay For (and Less!)
    It's cheap, and it's hard to complain about a place priced this low. And yet...walls are incredibly thin, as in "yes, I can hear you turning pages in the next room" thin. The room was clean but the decrepit condition of the wood (or wood-like) doors and trim in the hallways made me question the general approach to upkeep. That in turn led me to not want to even attempt the sauna or pool -- if they'll cut corners so drastically on basic upkeep, they're more likely to cut corners on things like sanitary condition of "shared water" facilities. There really isn't much nearby, though the Old Street station and Exmouth Market aren't THAT far away. All that said, it was cheap.
