for Studentsby Indira from San Jose
Pros: Great location. You have a small apartment to cook your meals and there's plenty of room! Excellent price.
Cons: A bit noisy. I wish the double bed had a double mattress not two single ones.

OK Apartment HotelPosted 20/09/2013
Pros: Just being able to prepare meals in the apartment.
Cons: Put electronic locks on the doors to keep the noise down.
Location: see above
.Location - Need to take the underground to go almost anywhere west. 7.4 pounds/person/d. Small grocery store on the street. Excellent Italian restaurant on the corner and underground station close by.You have to weigh the cost and time of the underground verses an apartment hotel in the west end. Travel to Soho from here is @ 35 minutes. The Barbican Centre is across the street. Has restaurants, movie theatres and the London Symphony Orchestra plays there. If you stay here check out the weekend attractions around Liverpool station i.e. street markets and the food court at Brick Lane. Great area for the whole family Hotel hallways are dirty, requires paint and new carpet. Rooms are serviced once if you are staying for the week. I was in a studio and I mentioned I had a bad so the staff put a queen size bed in my room.. It made the living space very small but I give full marks to the staff for doing this for me. The bed was excellent. Being able to cook in your room is the attraction. I don't want to get up for breakfast and I want to cook dinner in my room before going out to the theatre. If you are a tourist and don't plan on cooking then stay in a west end hotel.

good for business stay/short stayPosted 15/09/2013
Pros: Convenience and kitchen.
Cons: Real beds instead of sofa beds. Ability to control AC instead of central air.
ALL BEDS ARE SOFA BEDS. Misleading that they don't emphasize it!! Near a supermarket and London Museum and St. Paul's. really close to the underground. Staff was accommodating. Fridge, microwave, stove, and oven available. Just don't expect much walking space or space to put your clothes.

Great location, simple accommodations at cheap $Posted 19/08/2013 on Hotels.com
I knew what to expect from reading the reviews ahead of time, so I was happy overall with my stay. The bed was a fold-out, which was fine for a single person. The shower drained slowly, but other than that the room was great for a place to leave my belongings as I explored the city. The room was clean and secure. The Tate Modern, St. Paul's Cathedral, Museum of London, and the Globe Theatre were all within 20 minutes of the hotel. The remaining museums were a 30 minute walk west, so I didn't even bother to use the Tube except to get to Heathrow Airport. Given the cheap price from booking several months in advance, I would stay again if I had to be in the area again.

convenient self cateringPosted 14/08/2013 on Hotels.com
Just metres from the u'ground - convenient for West End - and with some high end eateries close by (Morgan M and Club Gascon). V well equipped for such a small place - even a micro dishwasher! Bathroom excellent with good shelves and storage space - thee only drawback was having to convert/pull out the beds - and next time we'll ask for a quieter room round the back - needed the windows open as no a/c - and traffic noise could be a problem if one's a light sleeper. But overall a well designed and maintained mini-apartment.

london yes but not this hotelPosted 10/08/2013
Cons: sofa bed
Location: location pretty good but you need to take subway to get to the city or walk for about 40 min.
2 words .. sofa bed . when i booked this hotel i somehow missed those two words . who would though there will be sofa bed instead of regular bed . very very uncomfortable and please dont open the windows during the night because you wont have any sleep soo noisy , tracks and cars, super loud. . the rest very nice very close to Barbican subway station , near restaurants and grocery shops .

BAD: The rooms have this double door set up that is unusal. You have to go through two locked doors to get into your room. You share one door with the neighboring room, the doors are heavy and make a lot of noise. I woke up multiple time throughout the night thinking someone was trying to open my door but it was just my neighbor going through the shared door just outside my door. From what I am guessing the area must not be that safe because the room has signs over the windows and doors saying make sure window is completely locked at night and don't leave door unlocked. The room decor was out dated. The sofa had an old snagged carpet like cover that was just kind of gross. Very little floor/walking space when the bed is pulled out. The room only had soap, no lotion or other hotel toiletries. There was only one full body towel in the room. The TV only had two chanels. Don't expect room service or other hotel services. GOOD: Close to the barbican tube station, just a few minute walk. The price is reasonable. The blow dryer in the room was nice considering all the other cuts they make.

Ok apartment hotel in central LondonPosted 15/07/2013
Pros: Spacious room
Location: Central in London. Locally not so exciting, but easy to get around with tube and buses.
This is nothing more and nothing less than an ok apartment hotel. I have stayed there three times and would say that on the plus side, the rooms are spacious for London. It is nice with a kitchen as well, although it doesn't have an oven. The pans are pretty cheap, so they can be slightly uncooperative when cooking. The bed is cheap, but ok. On the minus side is the showers. It is ok to save water, but it is a shame when it feels like there is hardly any water coming out of the shower head. This is not related to the water pressure, but is purely due to an attempt to save water. I would guess it is rather unsuccessful, as it takes twice as long to shower. The rooms are clean, but I have found hair in the bathroom, so there is still room for improvement. The staff is very service-minded.
