Liked: It was quite atmospheric, and the rooms are very quiet, which I really liked! The privacy curtains certainly helped make me feel comfortable, even in a room with a lot of other people. The breakfast they have is actually pretty good too. Overall, the place was kept clean, and although it does get a little humid in the basement rooms (esp right next to the shower room), the temperature was kept at a pleasant level. If I return to London, I would stay here again.

Disliked: The only thing was that each bed did not have a plug, so you have to use the plugs on the walls next to the beds. They had multi-tabs so the number of plugs was not a problem though.

Liked: The building is beautiful, totally worth seeing! Also the staff is very friendly and the eat-as-much-you-can breakfast reasonably priced, which I find very rare nowadays.

Disliked: The pillows in the beds are so flat, that you could almost sleep without one. Bathrooms should have more hooks and maybe plastic carpets inside the showers, because now there was no place to set my cloths and the whole floor of the bathroom was really slippery because of the flooding water.
