    I paid 198£ per night and it did not worth it ,,

  • Group of friends

    Breakfast was really good and just on the opposite side of the road there was a large supermarket and a few good restaurants. And really important the tube station was only a two minute walk away. So everything you need is within good reach from the hotel.

    In our room and on the corridor there was a smell of smoking. So it seemed previous guests smoked in our room and that there were other guests that smoked in the hotel. With air refreshers they tried to hide this, but not enough.

    We booked a family room clearly stated on Booked.net as such (2 Adults + 2 Children), yet when we arrived there were no family rooms available. After a considerable wait, late in the evening, with two tired hungry young girls, we were eventually given a double room with a mattress on the floor. Given I was due to run the Marathon on the Sunday this was far from ideal. The breakfast is a free for all, on two of our three mornings there was no cutlery or crockery for half an hour at a time and the food and drinks constantly ran out. So guests were left queuing and waiting around. On the Sunday, there were no draught beers on at the hotel. The toilets in the reception are locked and you have to ask for them to be opened. All in all a very poor standard at any price. The only thing it has going for it is the location, which is very close to Finchley road tube on the underground and directly opposite the 02.

    The location of the hotel for us was excellent being only 10 mins walk from Central School of Speech & Drama where my daughter had an audition. There are plenty of shops & restaurants surrounding the hotel and it has easy access into the centre of london which 2 tube stations within walking distance. There has been much made in reviews I have read about the noise of the main road right outside the hotel. We stayed in one of the 4th floor rooms overlooking the road and found no problems with noise whatsoever.

    The breakfast could have been better, but it was edible and the beds were a little hard although having said that, I have slept on worse when paying more. The main thing I didn't like is that a charge was put on my debit card for more than the cost of the stay the morning of our arrival, which I don't think is necessary. I paid cash when we arrived but had to wait until 5 days after checking out for the funds to be available. As this was done prior to the time that I could check in, I was pretty annoyed about that.

    5 stops on tube from Piccadilly at more reasonable rates than centrally located hotels

    6th floor rooms are located under the airconditioners and other equipment sited on the roof. These run all night causing noise in the rooms in this floor, which can lead to a disturbed nights sleep.

    Excellent position: overground, underground, buses to the center and very useful coach to Stansted airport... what else! Very nice accomodation, clean and comfortable. Room and bathroom big enough. Good breakfast. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the O2 shopping center in front of the hotel: dining at Weatherspoons is a nice experience.

    If you have problems with traffic noise, ask for a room on the back side, rooms at front should be better soundproofed.

    the staff was friendly and the best it was the fact that the hotel is easy to reach from luton airport.

    I wish to have a seif and some space to put my clothes. Also, i'd like to serve more fruits and vegetables at breakfast.
