Great value for money and only 10 minutes from the west end.

Fair 4.0
Not what the pictures portray
This is not a hotel or serviced apartments. It is a university halls of residence. The photos are very miss-leading. No en-suite and only one toilet and one shower per block of 5 rooms. No TV. Frustratingly I could have booked the Travelodge directly across the road, for the same cost. A good sized shared kitchen, but nothing else in the block. Large canteen for everyone, where breakfast is served. Comfortable bed, but noisy students banging doors until late.

Had been moved to a different building on arrival and given 2 separate rooms. Fridge leaked in one room so had to move. Breakfast excellent though.

Cheap stay for a central location
Basic accommodation - likely not to be as nice as in the pictures. Our room was noisy up until approx. 3am on a Saturday night / Sunday morning and in some of the rooms the windows don't open fully so it gets quite stuffy. Didn't try the breakfast so can't comment.

Excellent value for money
We booked a triple room for myself, my mother and my daughter. We arrived mid morning to drop our bags. The service was fantastic and the system for storing the bags securely was great. When we returned to check in, the process was quick and easy and we retrieved our bags with no fuss. Our room was clean and spacious and, whilst there were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, there was a shared kitchen next door which had full facilities for us to use. Breakfast in the morning was lovely - a well varied continental breakfast - cereals, pastries, fruit, yoghurts, bagels, and hot and cold drinks. We could not have asked for more. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We even borrowed a hairdryer from reception at no extra cost. This was exceptional value for money in central London. We would highly recommend and would definitely stay again in the future.

To start with the woman on front desk wouldn't let us in even though we were ringing the bell and waving! We only got in because someone else went in with a key fob. The uninterested woman on front desk immediately said we were too early as the room wasnt ready till 3pm ( found out later hardly any rooms taken so could have let us in) when we came back we got our room which was tiny and BOILING HOT we opened the windows as soon as we got in. The toilet room and shower room were both tiny good job we weren't too overweight! The buffet breakfast is continental I was hoping it would be full English so quite disappointed as all continental are buffet? Wont return .
