    friendly staff

    They had no record of the booking; required payment in cash; the room was very small; the wifi did not work for most of the time; breakfast was at different times to that given on the internet information; noise transferred between rooms and from the street a lot. It was a budget hotel with a price for the next band up.

  • Group of friends

    The shower was nice an hot.

    The bed was uncomfortable, the breakfast was horrible. The bread was mouldy the eggs had shell in it, the bacon was like plastic. Most of the staff were unaproachable at breakfast.

  • Family with children

    Safe, private car park. Clean, comfortable bed. Generous breakfast. Front door key. Tea/coffee readily provided when asked. En suite with excellent shower. Fine for 'just somewhere to sleep'.

    No tea/coffee facilty in room. No tv in room. These were expected, as described but could not be provided at our request. Also, no plug for the wash-basin and again, could not be provided. No mirror in bathroom. Inadequate handrail on lower staircase. Constant drilling outside our room during the day, when some work was being done. Tools and equipment in various areas gave the impression of 'a work in progress' .Perhaps they should have closed during reburbishment?

    the architecture and the design of the room

    if the hotel can prepare some different plugs in different type for international visitors would be very good. I come from Holland, and the plugs are different, so in the hotel I cannot charge my laptop and mobile

    Close to Tufnell Park

    Ceiling leaked, no door closers (doors banging 24 hours a day), bathroom requires update (no shower door, no light, fan broken), two single beds in the "triple room" with no way to put the beds together to make a double bed

  • Group of friends

    Good a reasonable price in a neat and clean area. Friendly environment with a five minutes walk to the closest subwaystation.Clean sheets with comfortaable beds. Good breakfast that leaves your stomach full and happy. Another positive thing was that you got keys for entering 24 hours, without disturbing the staff ringing the bell. WIFI-connection for free included with the price.

    Sometimes a little bit rude staff. No possibility to keep a safety box. Small bathrooms with an even more tiny wash handbasin. No lamps next to the beds, only rooflight.

    Leaving

    Walls are troo thin, you can hear all cinversation from next door. Decoration poor to hanging off.

    Location

    No smoke detectors or fire doors, no kettle/tea/coffee in rooms, no shower door, no lampshade, the flex and ceiling rose were filthy, toilet roll holder broken, only furniture wardrobe, table and bed. Very noisy with slamming doors from 6.30 in the morning and late at night.

  • Family with children

    I liked the nice people who owned/worked there. I also like that it was clean and safe.

    Very very cheap

    asked for a double bed but the room was so small that the beds did not fit next to one another but for the price i paid it was not that bad

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    Staff were ok and friendly. The room was a little small and beds out of place and the bathroom facilities wernt the best but it was a bed for the night at the end of the day and it served its purpose. Cant comment on the breakfast as I didnt have it. All in all it was a decent hotel for the price and being in London.

    My only gripe is that you cannot pay on card??? On Booked.net but not accepting cards??? Wouldnt have minded but the weather was boiling and had to walk all the way to the high st and back to get the cash out after just walking from st pancras.

    The lady who manages Charlies is charming along with her 2 helpers!!!There is a mature gentle greek man who stands in to give her a bit of time off who is equally charming and loves a chat,the hotel is in desperate need of refurbishment and is being rewired atm.We would go back due to the lovely staff and very good breakfast.

    The hotel is adequate and not expencive but it does need money spent on it on every level indeed!!!

    Ochotný a milý personál. Snídaně nad naše očekávání.

    Před zaplacením ubytování doporučuji nechat si pokoj ukázat - ten, který jsme napoprvé dostali, byl neuvěřitelně malý a s odpudivou koupelnou (pokoj č.4). Po naší stížnosti nám byl pokoj vyměněn za podstatně větší a odpovídající ceně.

  • Older travelers

    It was close to family and friends homes and withon walking distance ofthe Tube.

    The house was scuffy and our room smelt of cats. The shower was full of mold and it was very dirty. There were no tea and cofffe making facilities. For a few more pounds we could have stayed in a nice chain of hotels. I wouldn't stay here again.

    Quiet street, good breakfast and acceptable wi-fi speed

    Freezing cold rooms even when heater was on full blast. Had to wait approx. 90 seconds before the shower had the correct heat (and not boiling hot...)
