Dolphin Hotel, London
Fair2.0 / 5
This is definitely a budget hotel. I found it rather depressing. The walls are thin and I could hear the family in the room next to mine yelling at each other in the evening and morning. You have to pay to rent the TV remote, hair dryer, or iron. The people at the front desk were helpful enough and the room was clean. I feel sort of guilty giving this place a bad review, but I picked this place because it had three stars and I thought it would be an economical, but not depressing, place to stay.

Incredibly close to transport
It is a budget hotel. The location is great. The tube is right around the corner and will get you to pretty much anywhere you need to go in London. The staff was pleasant. It's an old building and if you don't mind dragging your luggage up several flights of narrow stairs, you'll be okay. It's fine for a couple of nights and a place to sleep. In our room the bathroom had a mildew odor. Again, it's a budget hotel.

Friendly staff, basic 3 star hotel.
The staff are very friendly and helpful and the location is good. It's a basic 3 star hotel and really needs a makeover. The furnishings are very tired and the building needs a renovation. However, the room was clean and for the price, no complaints.

Good for just a bed
A really average hotel but for the price not many would be better

I asked not to have a room in the basement and arrived late, perhaps that is why I got a room in the attic, 4th floor and no lift. I have bad knees and it is hard for me to carry the suitcase up 4 floor. The next day they gave me a room in the sister hotel, Shakespeare, on the ground floor. I cannot fault the service, but I will book a better hotel next time. Both are very basic and worn, I just stayed in Denmark for the same price and in comparision the Danish hotel was 5 star, even though it is only rated as 3. How these two hotels obtain their 3 star I don't know, or perhaps I am nut used to London standard.
