                We were very pleased with our room and the bathrooms was very clean.

                The beds could be softer. But otherwise it was perfect.

                The hotel was fresh and modern.

                The hotel seemed to be unfinished. The basic decoration seemed to e new and was of a good standard. However, it seemed unfinished as though they had run out of money to put telephones, pictures and decent bedding in the rooms. The bedding was seriously disappointing. It consisted of one beige woollen blanket tucked under the mattress with no valance beneath so the divan base was clearly visible. The bedding was what I would expect at a youth hostel.

              • Group of friends

                I have travelled around the world and I was quite exited about this offer which appeared to be a good deal and turned out to be a complete disappointment. The wall was missing a large section of plaster and the towels reeked of sweat. The shower head was broken and the water sprayed out over the top of shower door when in use. The breakfast service was a complete shambles. I only spent one night out of the planned 3 and returned to my home town early.

              • Family with children

                Clean, staff in reception were friendly and helpful, breakfast good choice, good location for city, luggage room to leave bags, good size room, beds comfortable, bathroom good size with good facilities, tv in room, nice decor.

                Room at front g8 - windows very draughty and let in freezing cold air, also allowed noise from road to be heard loudly. Windows need draught proofing so they don't move outwards and to stop the wind getting in. Will cut down noise and draught. We suggested this to the reception staff who noted it. They were very helpful and gave good local knowledge. Staff in breakfast room didn't appear to understand what we were saying, and were a little abrupt. Other than that, breakfast room was clean with good choice of food.

                Location location location!!!!!! The reception area was very trendy and staff were nice and helpful. Rooms were decorated nicely and had a nice flat screen. Price of the hotel was great and the free WIFI was useful.

                Rooms were really really small. When I got into the room I also managed to have a big stain on my carpet, kettle that didn't work and a lamp that didn't work. Walls could have done with a new lick of paint as there are certain areas that look scratch from luggage etc. Walls are quite thin so you can also hear ppl in rooms next to you, above you and below you. Feels a little bit like a posh student residence. Breakfast choice was really small. Either toast, cereal or fruit. Juices were not fresh!!!

              • Single

                Very good location - just 5 mins walk from Glocester road subway station, 15 mins walk from Natural History and Victoria and Albert museums. Nice surroundings for a morning walk. The room is clean and looks renovated recently. I would recommrnd it with some reservations - for solo traveler and for short trips (1-2 days) it is a decent value for money, but not for families.

                The room was very small, barely 4 sq. meters (45 sq. feet). There was just space for a bed and a small desk with a chair. The bed was obviosly shorter than 1.90 m that does not make fantastic sleeping if you are 1.90 or taller.

                Good location.

                The room was cold, with draughty windows. The tv did not work.

              • Single

                The location of the hotel was the only positive issue about the hotel.

                The room size was very small, the window was the smallest window I have ever seen in my life. there was no air conditioning even a fan in the room. I asked for a change in my room and the reception didnot care about it. the breakfast was very poor. the reception did not have an adaptor for my plug and said you can buy one outside the hotel. Booked.net price was OK and I thought it was a chance but I do not recommend the hotel for Booked.net users.

                Excellent location, good price

                The one front desk worker was very confusing and not at all helpful, but the girl who worked the front desk was excellent.

                The location

                Dirty carpet and bedspread. Old blanket and thin pillows on bed. Bad smell on entering the room. Small tv and large cracks in the wall. I had to cut my stay short as it was so uncomfortable.

              • Group of friends
                4.2

                The location was good.

                I am not one to complain however I feel that my experience at the avni was such a disappointment. From been attacked by a shower head that was selotaped on which fell onto my foot injuring me to very rude staff. There was only one pillow available in d room, so I asked the receptionist for another and he replied there was no other pillows available in the whole hotel!!!!! I then asked for a Remote control as there was none in d room the hotel response was "if there is none n d room u will have to do without" (actual quote). As a business this hotel really needs to invest in customer service courses for their staff. I would rate this hotel a two star.

                Room was clean and tidy and big enough for a short city stay.

                There could have been more of a selection for breakfast.

                10.0

                Really warm cosy room. Good internet connection. Friendly staff. Clean. Comfortable bed. Great location for Earl's Court and Olympia and yet in quiet side street. Local buildings have distinctive individual architectural points. Great pubs nearby and plenty of restaurants. I recommend the Hereford Arms in particular and had the Ribeye steak with Stilton twice. Good value.

                Basic breakfast but that was expected.
