The location was optimal for me, the price was right and the guy who owns or manages it was really nice. Other than that, lots of negatives and not many positives. This is not a hotel, it is an apartment building. You will need to track down the guy who owns/manages it. Bring a phone with UK service. The apartment itself was fine but I would not call it clean, and the balcony had enough pigeon droppings on it that it was unusable (heaping piles). The owner/manager pointed this out but did not seem to understand that this is generally the thing that someone is his position would have gotten taken care of before a paying guest arrived. Inside was not filthy, but it certainly was not clean either. The bathrooms were a little grubby with grime in back corners of shelves, etc. There were travel-size bottles of shampoo and shower gel and a wrapped bar of soap in one bathroom, but in the other the bar of soap was unwrapped and presumably previously-used. Paint was peeling in there too. The dishes in the kitchen all felt sticky/unclean, so I emptied the cabinets and ran a giant load through the dishwasher, after which they felt normal. Clearly nobody had thought to do that in between guests once in a while. There was a TV that was too small for the room in the living room, and no TV, radio or clock in either bedroom. The furniture was bargain-basement, with cheap, lumpy beds and a sofa and chair that would have been at home in a university dorm. Would not return or recommend.
