So this is what they mean by "dirt cheap." We already knew that the Hotel Carter is the pad to stay away from in America. Now meet its UK equivalent – London’s Cromwell Crown Hotel, named today by Tripadvisor as the worst hotel in Britain.

It may be in a fairly a swanky part of town, but the hotel’s anything but Tripadvisor reviewers noted “bloodstained” bedding, cans of beer in the bath, rat droppings on the pillows and “slightly mental-looking people wandering up and down the corridors.” Well, if you will only pay £19 ($27) for your room…

According to Tripadvisor, seven of Britain’s ten filthiest hotels are in the capital. If you’d rather not run the e-coli gauntlet, The 41 Hotel, the monochrome gaff by Buckingham Palace, was named the country’s best luxury hotel.
