I stayed at the Shaftesbury hotel 2 nights and I have to say that I have been in a lot of hotels during my life, and this for me is the worst hotel I have ever slept into!
My room was situated underground but that was not the problem. The problems were many:
- The room was so small that you can't move yourself into: think that you couldn't get out the chair from the desk because there wasn't space!
- My room was abandoned alone at the end of a corridor in the middle of two other rooms: one used by bricklayers for preparing things and the other (the room closest to mine one) on renovations. So I couldn't sleep in the morning because there were works!
- The air conditioner was exactly perpendicular to my bed and I couldn't switch it off. So to avoid the neck blocked the next day I decided to put a pillow in front of it helped by the wardrobe that was exactly under the conditioner.
- this is veeery beautiful: there were ants in my little bathroom, yes maybe they were coming from the room under work for finding peace :)
- Last day I had to wake up early in the morning to get the flight. the tube was still closed and so I decided to ask to the receptionist to call me a taxi for the morning….. Be careful!! Maybe I didn't know that because it was the first time but they didn't call me a normal taxi, they called me a private one or something similar. He came in a biig mercedes old and squared like the old "mafiosi" cars.
and for 5 mints of trip I had to pay 35 euros!!! Ok I was in a business trip and I accepted to go with him but if not? If I was In a normal vacation?
anyway for every bullets above DON'T GO TO THE Shaftesbury HOTEL!!!! Big price, lousy hotel...
