Location wise this property is great for anyone attending anything near Southbank, the staff I encountered were very pleasant and you can tell the management are making an effort when it's the only apartment I've ever stayed in where they offer a small "mini bar" selection in the fridge (a novel idea, not that I made use of it).
BUT...when there's a major construction side right next door (an apartment building or some other kind of high rise), one would think that some mention would be made on the website you're booking with about the possibility of noise.
Thank the lord I had to be up early anyway because god knows I'd never have slept pass 6am otherwise because the noise was almost unbearable and I'd have got more sleep lying next to a set of train tracks in peak hour.
Being in the travel industry I'm well versed with wholesalers and hotels advising of renovations or any other issue which may impede a guests ability to have a relaxing stay and the management in my opinion really fell short by not advising at any stage (even at checkin) of the possibility that I might be woken from a dead sleep the next morning by the noise.
Given that I don't honestly think I'd stay again which is a shame as location wise and cleanliness couldn't be faulted.
If you are staying there, avoid the chinese/vietnamese restaurant downstairs, the food is disgusting and a complete rip-off, you'd find more palatable food in a dumpster behind McDonalds.
