Recently spent the weekend in London, the staff at the Assembly was very welcoming and friendly during our stay. The location was great, can walk to tons of pubs, cafes and tourist spots. Tube stop at the end of the street for easy access to other part of the city. Rooms were small but manageable for 2 people for a shorter stay. Did not eat at the roof top restaurant/bar but did go up to see and had a great view of the city and was decorated very nicely. Would stay here again for the location and price point.

We had one night stay at the Assembly. The Location is excellent, in the heart of everything you need, we are always looking for great inexpensive places to stay and this does tick the boxes. No frills and it’s very basic, what more do you need, the room and bathroom spotless, we booked a superior room as it offered a bit more space and a window. The offer was £126 for the night. The room although on the charring cross road was very quiet, we couldn’t hear the train’s or any other guests. One comment I’d make is the pillows aren’t soft and fluffy they are very hard so I’d take my own travel pillow next time. Also note there’s no TV (not that we wanted one), they do have body wash and hand soap and hair dryer. 😃
