We are still at the accommodation (southside) as I write this review. We had some reservations when we booked as to my wife 'student accommodation' means our son's university halls, which we wouldn't have felt like staying in. We wanted somewhere close to the Royal Albert Hall, and this is literally a stone's throw away. The whole process has been incredibly smooth. A large clean twin room with all we need for a short stay. Plenty of storage space, and functional bathroom and facilities to make a hot drink. No TV but that was no issue for us.
Breakfast is provided in a large 'canteen type' facility which whilst not great food is all that you need and includes hot English breakfast', fruit, coffee, etc...
I have given this a 4 grade because of the great location and for London the terrific value. Had we paid £200 per noght I would have expected a lot more but for the prices set here it is probably as good as London does for the visitor. Our 2 day stay was directly to attend a couple of concerts at the RAH and this could not have worked out better. The college also has a great value bar where pre concert drinks were enjoyed. We stayed in a Central London 'travel' chain hotel last week for another gig and the Imperial College accommodation is much better for the money.
A good choice for summertime visitors to London.
