I STRONGLY NOT RECOMMEND IT!!! I just spent a week there and I am totally not satisfied. The location is quite good, and it is true that it's close to the tube station, but it is not at all "above average" as stated on this page ********. A friend of mine recommended me to go there because he went there a couple of years ago, and it was a quite good budget place. But I guess the management changed a year and a half ago. There's totally no maintenance, and the place looks really creepy. Only the hall looks quite decent, but as soon as you go up or downstairs, everything's different. The carpets are very old, smelly, visibly dusty and even ragged, especially on the stair steps. The elevator was out of order, so not only I had to drag my heavy bags, but I bet there would be no access to disabled people at all. And no need to say that it is not true that the rooms are cleaned on a daily basis. On the first night I was given a creepy room, very dusty, with dirty bed sheets, broken window (could not close it), and no fridge as I paid for. (There were phones inside the rooms, for outgoing calls only, but they were not working, as the main phone of the hotel was not working as well. In fact for three days in a row before my departure I had been trying to give them a call but no one ever answered the phone, and then I learnt why.) I asked for more clean sheets, and the incompetent german receptionist led me to the store room, and told me to pick the ones that "looked" clean to me. And some weren't, with visible stains on them. And of course they were not ironed, but not even clean. I asked for another room, and he told me there was no other room available. All he could do was get the fridge the next day from another room. I slept with my clothes and coat on, not to have any contact with the filthy bed linen, and did not unpack my bags, as I wanted to run away and ask for a refund. The morning later, there was a quite nicer lady at the desk, who told me that the german guy should have given me another room, even if it was a double one. We agreed that I could decide to stay if I had a clean room. She told me there were two, on the fourth floor, the highest. I picked one. The following day -it had been raining- in the evening when I got back to my room I realised that it was raining inside as well, and specifically on the bedside table, where there were all the switches for the room lights, so I was worried a short circuit could occur. All they did was give me a cloth, and promise they would have repaired the roof in the morning. Last but not least, one night I could not sleep because there were noises in my room, in particular a plastic bag seemed to be touched or moved my something, and I found out that it was some rat trying to pull a biscuit out of it (which meant the rat was under the bed!!!). That was the end of my "happy" budget holiday. The morning later, the same lady at the desk told me that she thought the mice might come from another room that probably has never been cleaned for two months, and in which a very messy and dirty guy who used to work there had been living. The only reason why I did not check-out as soon as possible is because they told me that what I paid through credit card (?44, the 35% of the weekly rate) did not count for them as it all goes to the site, and so they had to charge me 2 nights from the ?80 I paid there in cash. Which meant I would have lost ?60 with no reason. I really hope they're going to do something about it.
