I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in September 08. If you are not expecting much then you won't be disappointed. If your not wanting to spend much money to put your head down then i recommend it however i would say that it is probably more suited to younger people. I booked a standard room with a window. It was still tiny!.. 3 sides of the bed were touching the walls, there is very little space for luggage but if your not bothered about it being in the way then i wouldn't sorry too much, i had two fairly big cases and i coped! There is two hooks on the wall which is great for hanging coats/bags. Another thing to remember is that there is no bed side tables or anywhere to out your bits, i ended up puting my phone/deodorant magazines etc. on the windowsill! Of course if you book a room without a window then this might be a problem.
The en suite bathroom is tiny, does feel like you are in an aircraft toilet but again does the job fine for a quick wash. The room and hotel in general was very clean and i am fussy so that says something! The small flat screen tv is greatly positioned on the wall and has a clock display which is good for checking the time throughout the night/morning. You do have to pay for the tv but i would recommend it. They give you a small remote to operate it which cuts off after the 24 hours in which you have hired it for. If you don't like sleeping with one pillow then i would suggest you pay for an extra pillow at reception, it is well worth it. At the end of the day it doesn't cost much considering you are paying very little for your room. In my opinion the bed and pillows were comfy and i slept very well.
There is no lift so if you have poor mobility i would not advise this hotel. If you are claustrophobic i would also avoid it.
There is a vending machine and hot drinks machine in reception in which you have to pay for. It is not cheap, i would recommend walking down the street a little outside of the hotel and you will come cross a corner shop. I bought drinks and snacks from there to take back to the hotel room. It is open really late which is good. The location is good as it is a 5 min walk to Victoria train station although there is not much around the hotel itself other than a couple of pubs. I did find a street nearby the hotel with a lot of restaurants on it so if you go for a walk on Belgrave road which the hotel is on and walk down some of the side streets you should come across some restaurants.
The check out is in the morning but i paid to leave cases there in their back room and collect them later and had no problems at all.
If you are looking for somewhere cheap to stay to put your head down i would recommend it, For a hotel in central London it is a bargain, more money for shopping !!!
Summary: Does the job!
