Nigel Marriott thinks…

"Three house keepers keep the place very clean, they are very pleasant and people need to talk to them more. The included breakfast is a bonus."

Liked: It's cheap, but you get what you pay for- the place is only good if you just want a bed and no space for anything else.

Disliked: Pretty much everything, but mainly that there are mousetraps in the place- doesn't make it feel very clean. Freezing showers barely big enough to get in, no towels, very small living room for the number of people staying there. Had to haul a huge suitcase up three floors.

Liked: Location is perfect: easy access to tube and several bus lines. Reception staff is friendly and helpful. Everything works with a key card, so it makes things safer. Breakfast was enough to start the day.

Disliked: The place could use a good scrub, especially the floors.

Liked: Nulla

Disliked: Non c'è nessun controllo per quanto riguarda cibi in camera (Il tuo vicino di letto che mangia pollo fritto alle 2 di notte sveglierebbe chiunque).. I materassi e le coperte sono tappezzati di macchie e buchi. Va bene che forniscono le lenzuola ma il solo pensare di essere in contatto con quei ricettacoli di batteri lascia ben poca voglia di farsi una bella dormita dopo una giornata stancante.
