Poor 2.0
What a hell!
When the room door was opened, what a terrible picture! There was a rubbish bin right in the middle of the room, the naked mattress has neither quilt and nor sheet or bed cover. The cup was placed by the sink, the kettle was up next to the window with its leads dropping to the floor, a broken part was on the floor as well. Dirty with bad smell! When contacted the telephone number several times, a replacement was given in a basement room without window, which is hard to breath during the hot summer night. Later, about 21:30, a room in another location was given, and a taxi has to be used to go there. That is the experience of the Alexander!

Below parr
Basement room, shared smelly bathroom, was expecting an ensuite bathroom. Extremely noisy room, the room above banged on the floor everytime my friend orgasmed, sound proofing needs to be improved.

Very good 8.0
The stay was very good, apart from a condom that was found by the bed but the manger and owner sorted out quickly so not bad stay for the first time.

Very good 8.0
Thin walls
Convenient but maybe a downside of not having staff on site is that guests feel freer to be noisy, and no-one to quieten them? I wasn’t too pleased by the 3 40 wake up with drama in the next room that went on for well over an hour

Good 6.0
Not great. Doggy smell and fleas. Noisy.
I would not stay here again. It is pet-friendly so, if you don't have dogs, the smell of dog is overwhelming when you walk in. I also saw at least 5 fleas and I ended up with flea bites which was very upsetting. I didn't get the room I booked and the I was allocated a room on the ground floor, next to a busy road, so it was quite noisy. No hot water on the first morning but they did fix this when I reported it. Walking distance to local shops which was convenient and check in instructions were very good. I imagine that it is great for pet owners.
