Good location. It can be reached by subway without changing trains. Wi-fi connection was poor. Too weak to use steadily.

HI, thanks for your time leaving us your review. I'm glad you had a great stay with us. Our Wi-Fi is working on our common areas only. We are trying to improve it and be able to offer in the next future the service as well in the rooms. Hope to see you again.

Tolle zentrale Lage in netter Wohngegend. Hilfsbereite Mitarbeiter. Selbtsversorger-Küche gut ausgestattet, Sauberkeit der Küche erstaunlich gut (bis auf einige Mitbewohner, die anscheinend nicht gelernt haben, nach sich aufzuräumen, Herd abzuwischen, angebrannte Töpfe zu säubern....) Sanitäranlagen sauber. Aufenthaltsräume angemessen. Aktuelle Infos und Tipps für den Aufenthalt in London sind z.T. gut sichtbar, ansonsten helfen die frdl. Mitarbeiter an der Rezeption.
