    A basic room to sleep in.

    Having spotted that some rooms had shared bathroom facilities, I went out of my way to book an en-suite. On arrival I was advised that, although the Lonsdale were aware they had accepted a booking for an en- suite, they did not have one available. They gave me a £15 discount but, as this was a business expense, this made little difference to me. The group in front of me were in the same situation. As the hotel is a very basic budget hotel - bare wiring sticking out of the walls, window propped open with a broken chair leg etc - this lack of comfort was quite annoying.

    Handing back the key after our 2 night stay. Location.

    Where to begin.....it was scruffy, dirty, run down and the staff were very disorganised. The reception area was a total mess, papers everywhere which meant it took ages for them to find our booking. Once it was finally located we were offered to look at our room before we paid.....we thought this was odd but this made us suspicious as to just how horrible the room would be and sure enough it was pretty grim, the curtains were so thin they didnt block out any light, the beds didnt have duvets and only one pillow each, the carpets and walls were grubby, the bathroom light didnt work unless you held it in place, the mirror was wonky there were large patches on the wall where they had taken things down and neglected to paint the holes the same as the walls and to top it off the walls were damp. If anyone is planning to stay in this hotel, make sure you check out your room first and negotiate the price, it is definately not worth what they are asking. Absolute dump, only good thing is the location.

    Very basic hotel in central london - dont expect much from it.

    Very poor value for money - small rooms, tatty furnishings and a "ensuite" module in the middle of the room that was out of a caravan. Certinaly not worth what I was charged.

    Very good

    The room was clean but decor was definatley outdated and shabby. Sheets clean. Staff friendly and helpful. It was a fast paced 30 minute walk to St.Pancras international. For an evening meal there was a good choice of restaurants within a 10 min walk away. For the price it was good for an overnight stop. I was fortunate enough to be at the back of the hotel so very quiet.

    Tatty.No ensuites.

    Good

    It was absolutely in the middle of the city, in easy reach of everything, easy check-in, check-out, cheap.

    The shared bathroom on the first floor did not work, no possibility to have a shower. It is fine, if you just spend one night there :-) well, you expect everything else for this price, and everything else was fair.

    Location

    The rooms and bathrooms were in a disgusting state. The decorations and furnishings were tired. Very little cleaning evident. Hot water did not work; overall water pressure nearly non-existent.

    Location

    All hotel inside looks like shelter for homeless people. You can not expect to live better for £55 for single room in this civilise (?) city.
