Liked: The property is very large and yet secure. It's close to the tube station and close to some facilities, just in case you need something on your way in/out. Staff very helpful, breakfast is basic but good, and you get coffee all day round (albeit you have to pay for it after breakfast).

Disliked: The heating was either off or not working. It was freezing in the rooms. But I'm OK with that, I guess I'm used to it. My roommates, though, would caugh quite a bit in the mornings.

Liked: Very impressed with the location, helpfulness of staff, cleanliness, security (the lockers in the rooms are great) and the free brekkie. All round great stay, just wish I could've stayed for longer. Will definitely be staying here again.

Disliked: There's nothing to dislike. The staff are friendly and helpful, it's fab for getting into town (bus stop directly outside and tube stop a 10 minute walk away) and the beds were comfy and clean.

Liked: -free breakfast had coffee, brown and white toast, jams, orange juice, croissants, muesli and cornflakes, fruit-kitchen with fridge-had 5 working computers with internet so did not have to wait long-several bathrooms-located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood-bathrooms, bed linen, and carpet floors were clean-large, personal lockers

Disliked: -In the first 2 showers I tried, the water drained very slowly so you were standing in a deep puddle after 30 seconds of use. -Thermostat was set at a too high of a temperature -Takes at least 25 min to walk and tube to Bond Street (interchange for the Central line)
