Last minute budget stay
Booked at the last minute due to issue with another hotel so I was limited to the budget room - when I checked in, the man checking me in made a point of highlighting more than once that this was a budget room and he wasn't wrong. Located in the basement, you could hear footsteps at all times of the day and night so not good in terms of sleep quality. Unnecessary for someone to point out and highlight the fact that it's budget - it was £99 in London... it's obviously budget. The room seemed clean. I couldn't get the TV to work and the bed was really not comfy at all. I noticed that the window seemed to have some kind of wooden cover over part of it - my assumption being it had been smashed previously - so when I went out for dinner I had to take all valuables with me... just in case. I didn't stay for Breakfast as frankly I wanted out of there. It was cheap so served a purpose but could do with upgrading in places. There was also an overpowering plug in air freshener which I immediately switched off, but the smell was difficult to get rid of - my guess is it was trying to mask other smells... The staff were friendly enough - but I won't be going back

A casserole of dirt, mould and damp depression...
This is by far the most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed in in the UK. A absolute pit. 6pm Saturday night, room next door was having a new shower cubicle installed, I thought at one point the plumber was trying to drill straight through the wall. Breakfast included mouldy & stale croissants, oh and supermarket value yogurts. The third attempt to kill me was the cleaner leaving the hoover across the corridor at the top of the stairs. Oh and the walls of room were covered in damp... I'm getting in touch with Islington Council environmental health about this pit of despair but if your thinking about booking it before I get the chance, book it at your peril...

Overnight in Islington
The hotel was easy to find and in a great location. The traffic around the area though was horrendous! We had to check in late as we went to our concert first due to being in stuck in numerous traffic queues.The gentleman on reception was helpful, polite and had a good sense of humour! Our room, though small, was clean and comfortable if not a tad dated. Everything worked and we didn't hear any outside noise. The continental self service breakfast was perfectly adequate for our needs. We would like to also recommend the Hidden City treasure hunt which we did on the Sunday. Hugely enjoyable and you get to see parts of London off the beaten track. Whilst I'm reviewing, Union Chapel is an amazing and historical space to enjoy concerts and comedy.

Good stay other thAn the smell
The staff was good. The room was taken care of daily unless i told them i dont want the room to be cleaned since im not leaving until later in the day. The only issue i had with the room is everytime you flush the toilet, turn on the shower and sink water there is a foul smell coming out from the restroom. Not sure where its coming from. I saw they put a air freshener behind the trash container to mask the odor

Don't bother
Basement room with no windows stuffy, room stank of mould , bedside lamp didn't work couldn't adjust volume on tele., Fire alarm in building went off twice in night, I was in the room directly under the breakfast area so could hear chairs being moved and crashes all morning from 7:30 till 10am and no one even in reception to complain to when I left. Got no sleep for 70 quid
