They are unfair because I didn't stay at this hotel but they won't refund me because they claim they didn't let anyone else reserve the room. How would we know if that's even true?

Look for a better place.
The hotel's rooms are very small and uncomfortable, the bathroom are the smallest ones I have ever seen. The shower is indeed a micro one and you can not brush your teeth with the door closed as you are not able to lean inside that bathroom. The location is not good, the neighborhood is full of doped and drunk guys, it's near a tube's station but the tube's tickets are expensive...almost £5 for a single ride. I don't think this place is worth it.

Good Hotel in a Residential Neighborhood
If you want a hotel that's clean, in a residential neighborhood, and has convenient access to the Underground (5ish minute walk), then this is a good choice. My wife and I hate chain hotels and enjoy staying in smaller hotels like this one when we travel. The staff was AWESOME. They answered each question we had and if they didn't have the answer ready, they took the steps to find the answer. Very friendly and helpful. As I mentioned, the room was clean. And I mean spotless. I'd swear you could have eaten off the bathroom floor tiles. I've read comments about the poor wifi and I had no problems with it. It's not super fast so don't plan on watching a full Netflix series but once you login (and if you don't login, it IS super slow) it's fine for general web surfing, checking email, and such. I have 2 points that would have made the room much better. The room we were in was actually rather good sized for Europe. Plenty of room for my wife and I. It could have used a chair by the windows. It did have an IKEA style stool by the desk but a chair by the window would have been nice to sit in and relax while waiting for my wife to finish getting ready. The other piece is some general area information. I'm not talking information on tourism in London, I'm saying what's in the area - recommended restaurants/cafes. I would stay here again and would recommend it.
