Old Friend Hotel Reviews

Average Guest Rating: 3.2'Good' Based on 42 Hotel Reviews
Hanif, British

The price was excellent for a single room so close to central London plus the WiFi, TV and breakfast that came with it. But it was not clean, so Ill book another place next time!

Monika Mareckova, Czech republic

The Old Friend Hotel offered us a very nice stay, including good food and very friendly attitude. I was there with my best friend and we both felt like home. There is nothing more the hotel could have offered

Michele Scotto di Ma, Italian

The only good thing about the Old friend is the location. The room and the toilet are grimy. More so, a staff member was sleeping on the floor near my door. Overall I had a dirty twin room and I didn't sleep either because I found an insect on my bed.

Mark Steed, English

Exceptionally good value and very helpful staff at Old Friend Hotel

Keith Watson, British

Very basic hotel in London. Good value for price. Reception staff very friendly. Towels not replaced each day. Bedroom small but comfortable. Sheets not made. Small kitchen/breakfast room, which can only accommodate about eight people. I enjoyed my stay, but only mainly used it to sleep as I was out most of the rest of time from 8am to 11pm and only needed a really cheap place
