I was down in Ealing for a course with University of West London. I have chosen “Hotel 55”:https://hotel55-london.com/ based on price and location close to the University. It was the cheapest hotel in the area so I did not expect much. I got there and WOW!!! The friendliest receptionist I have ever met, a Romanian guy I believe (sorry I cannot pronounce his name!). They were not too busy so I got a complimentary upgrade!
The rooms were recently refurbished, much better than the Holiday Inn I stayed in last time! Apparently they have employed a designer.
As I booked directly I also got a complimentary breakfast…overall, I will stay here next time I am back for my course!
