Positive Reviews

Located for all your transit needs

Excelsior is in a perfect location for access to all transit—buses, tube stations, trains and the Eurostar It’s also walking distance to many London attractions, restaurants and pubs It’s near a Tesco, which is convenient as well!

Clean hotel with helpful staff

Hotel staff is very friendly and the customer service great They will readily offer assistance and area information The hotel is clean and tidy; housekeeping staff does a thorough job, which is especially appreciated with the shared bathrooms.

Good accommodation for the price

The rooms are small and amenities are basic Some rooms have shared bathrooms but for the low price, it’s manageable The English breakfast is quite good The two-bedroom apartments are less than a minute walk from the main hotel and are great value, with larger rooms and a kitchen with all the essentials Whatever you choose, the price for the location is excellent.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms and beds

The rooms in the hotel are small as are the beds Bathrooms are also tiny That said, this is a budget hotel and it’s perfectly sufficient for a bit of sleep and a shower when you are out all day/evening exploring the city.

Noisy hotel

The hotel can be noisy depending on where your room is Being a budget hotel where most guests are coming and going, you can hear people throughout the night and doors slamming or floors squeaking You can also hear street noise and deliveries That said, this is a downtown location and for the price, if you aren’t fussy it’s still a good deal.

Poor Wi-Fi connection

Wi-Fi at the Excelsior hotel, although included, is slow if it’s working at all This is a pain when trying to research the city before heading out to sightsee.
