We stayed on our way through London recently and this was hands down the worst accommodation in a trip of several months.
First the good - the location is excellent, close to Paddington station and an easy walk to Hyde park. The sheets and towels were clean.
Now, sadly, for the not so good..... Our apartment was down a dark, dilapidated hallway with security lights which worked only part of the time. The main door from the street was broken so anyone could just walk in off the street. This was still not fixed when we left several days later. Beware also -reception is several miles from some apartments and we had to catch an expensive taxi to pick up the key. The staff were cold and completely indifferent and did nothing at all to make us feel welcome.
The apartment itself was small, dark, mouldy in parts and had a smell of something recently deceased wafting out of the drains. We were also woken several times by rats scuttling around in the ceilings at night.
Taking into account all of the above, we thought value for money was very poor and would much rather have found a decent hostel. Presumably with the location the managers think regardless of the quality or service people will come..... Don't let it be you!
