Lovely place: the single room might look a bit like a railway sleeper in layout but it is is fact very sensibly designed. Wonderful bed; have never slept so well in London. I like being able to make good coffee and grab juice and a croissant from the mini kitchen without having to wait for someone else to do it. Best of all Barclay Road is quiet but only a minute or two from the tube and buses; this really saves tired legs at the end of the day.
