Liked: We were a group of 4, had a room with private bathroom on the 5th floor. The staff was VERY friendly and VERY VERY helpful. Friendly and safe atmosphere,nice location,5' walk from Oxford Street and Great Portland Street Subway station,super market,bank and post office (to exchange money) nearby,quite good value for money,I really enjoyed my stay and I would recommend it to those who visit London for sightseeing and don't really need an expensive relaxation style hotel!

Disliked: We had a problem with the window which didn't open enough so the room smelled a little bit bad even though we had it open all day. What is also a bit annoying (for me it was,I woke up at 7a.m. several times,my friends didn't hear a thing!) is that when our neighbors were closing their door, it made such a loud noise. Finally,no one is cleaning the rooms,they just take the trush out, but how bad can it get?! (NO TOWELS, just to know!)

Liked: The rooms are clean and well set out, the location is close to Underground stations and it's very secure. The atmosphere and staff were great, friendly and open. I felt really comfortable there!!

Disliked: Not much, there was only one toilet and one shower for a few rooms of 8 people which didn't end up being a problem but could be if there were lots of people wanting to use it at the same time.

Liked: The lounge was nice. Staff were friendly. Rooms were ok.

Disliked: Maeby some more toilets and showers would be great. The main thing that bothered me was that you had to bring your own lock to the lockers, and I did, but the locker wouldn't close even with the lock. And pretty hard to meet people..
