Liked: Die Lage ist für London gut.

Disliked: Wir waren in einem Souterain-Zimmer untergebracht ohne Fenster nur mit einem Lichtschacht. Klimaanlage war defekt. Somit extrem schlechte und stinkige Luft im Zimmer ohne Möglichkeit zum Lüften. WC auf dem Stockwerk defekt. Reklamationen an der Rezeption wurden aufgenommen, aber nichts dagegen unternommen. Umziehen in ein anderes Zimmer war nicht möglich. Auch in der Küche, welche im Keller war, extrem schlechte Luft. Hier auch keine Klimaanlage oder Fenster
