basically ensuite student dorms, i stayed one night at the Stanford Street building due to its location close to Waterloo station. The rooms are small, basic, and a little worn. the staff are fine and there is good security, the breakfast served free of choice in a building across the road was a welcome bonus. The rooms are a little...

I stayed at the Stamford Street building. I was welcomed at Reception by friendly staff who explained for me the set-up and how to find my room. The room was certainly an improvement on the accommodation I had at King's all those years ago! A comfortable bed, clean en-suite shower room, a small bag of toiletries and a comfortable chair....

Central, near Waterloo Station and underground, Thames river. Tiny room, and bathroom, old and dirty upholsteryand , not very clean indeed. Friendly personnel at the reception, not very friendly at the breakfast in the building opposite to the apartments. Breakfast acceptable. Not suggested

Imagine going down a dark hallway at night, expecting something to go bump from either side of you. That's what greeted me as I made my way to my rooms. A convenient location and probably one that suited a solo traveller like me that just needed a place near Waterloo station to crash. Room was simple, with a shower/toilet that...

Ok... I'm going to be as honest as possible. If you are in London for a few days and you are seeking a comfortable place to stay, then this probably is not for you. I travelled up from Devon on the train to Waterloo Station and was in town for one night, as I was going to a reunion in...

They must be the most ill-mannered reception staff I have ever come across. I waited by the desk to be served. The man with glasses was on duty this time, when I approached his desk for check-in, he flicked his eyes up away from his screen with a frown and said 'Yeah??' In a blunt 'what do you want' tone....

This room consists of a small single bed, a shower/toilet wet room, a fridge and mirror and closet. Small room, with plenty of stairs and doors to get to your room. The bed was a cheap mattress, but the towels and shampoo was fine. Amazing location, about 3 minutes walk to Waterloo Station, it is located right next to the...

Location is pretty fine. Very close to the North side of London, and there is a very important station in close proximity. Wi-fi worked fine, but you have to log in every time you go back in the apartments. Location is fine, as I said, but oddly is not so well served for airports. In the night isn't so safe:...

This place is situated in a great location in Waterloo but if you're looking to actually sleep in London then this place is not for you. The single room is very small and the bed is very uncomfortable. There's a refrigerator in the room and it's quite noisy. If you're booked into Block 1, 2 or 3. Then you will...

Was just browsing through booking.com to travel on a leisure trip to London. And found this apartment.
