The Green Rooms Hotel (Wood Green)
The Green Rooms is an artsy, creative and low budget hotel, just a stones throw from Wood Green tube station (just a few stops away from North London’s Park Theatre). The Piccadilly Line provides a direct route in to the West End of London and so whilst it might take a little while to get there, at least you don’t have to keep changing lines!
The large bar/cafe area provides a creative space for people to work throughout the day, without feeling they need to spend a ridiculous amount on coffee just to be able to keep their seat in a busy cafe. This is much more chilled out with a relaxed ambience of people coming and going (a bit like a library – but without the no talking policy).
Food is available day and night with a greek inspired menu of reasonably priced Souvlaki Kebab’s with quirky Kylie Minogue puns (I should be Souvlaki) and there is entertainment provided in the bar area sometimes in the evening. The evening ambience is relaxed and fun with some interesting characters more than willing to chat to you at the bar (even if they then fall off of their stool and end up being asked to leave). A word of caution is to keep your belongings close by as a lady sat at the table next to be had her bag stolen from under all of our noses (but hey this is London and that can happen anywhere).
The rooms are clean and provide everything you need for a basic hotel. It doesn’t claim to be the Ritz and Dormitory rooms are just £24 per night and private rooms with en suite bathroom is from £71 (where else in London can you get a room for that price?).
As they always ask on the TV programme Four In A Bed, “would you stay here again?” and the answer for me is “yes”.
