Guest reviews for Generator London
11 Mar 2018 by jess
Dear Ivana, thank you for taking the time to give us a feedback. We are really sorry to know you didn't enjoy your stay at all. Unfortunately this is an old building so sometimes spaces are limited. About breakfast, you need to consider that you pay £8.00 for a huge buffet, where you can literally eat as much as you want. Outside you would pay the same amount only for one plate. Regards, Reception team
