    • Good location

      Reviewed 03 August 2019

      Stayed 2 nights at this place, great location with being close to restaurants, night life, the lanes, pier and beach. Room was bigger then expected and did the trick for 2 nights. Relatively clean and the staff were very nice and accommodating. We did think breakfast was included but you need to pay extra when you book and we didnt realize. Overall it was a good place to stay in a good location

    • Horrible, stinks of cigarettes

      Reviewed 20 July 2019

      This is a small, grotty B&B, not the funky boutique hotel they'd like you to think it is. Our room was tiny and in very poor condition. Evidence of disrepair and lack of care everywhere, including damp and mould in the bathroom. The worst problem was the smell of cigarettes. I don't mean the occasional whiff of smoke from someone smoking outside on the street, but the deeply-impregnated, long-term stench of a wet ashtray. We had the window open all day and all night but the smell persisted. Horrible. The location is very central, but Russell Square isn't nice. There's litter all over the street and there are a number of vagrants camping in the garden square outside the hotel. It didn't feel very safe. This is a damning review but it's 100% accurate and if you're considering staying here you should be aware. We were shocked and disgusted.

    • TERRIBLE HOTEL! - avoid at all cost!

      Reviewed 12 July 2019

      Based on the reviews we booked this for the last two nights of our UK interrail trip - but fled upon arrival. The place was not only extremely run down, it was really unappetizingly dirty - doors, windows, banisters. We took one look at the room (which admittedly did not look quite as grimy as the public areas) and cancelled our reservation. The owner would not give us a refund, even when pressured by, but frankly it was worth the money (over 200) to be able to NOT stay there. Worst place Ive been in - probably ever. Avoid at all costs!

    • Do NOT go here!

      The reserved hotel room on the 3rd floor was not what we got. We got a smaller room on the 5th floor. But...we had to pay as for the reserved room. The Chinese owner kept telling we had reserved the other room, while we had black on white from that we were right. So we paid to much and when complaining we got only half the difference back. Breakfast was uncoordinated. The time between toast ands the rest of it was about 20 minutes. The bathroom was very, very small.Last but not least, it's unsafe. There is one stairs to the 5th floor and the emergency exit is in the basement... This is already reported to the Brighton City Council. The owner seems to think we still live in 1970 when Brighton was booming.
