I stayed at a room on the 5th floor, it was a two bedroom serviced apartment.
First of all, the room smelled funny the whole time I was there. It barely got any sunlight, it was winter and it was cold, there was no heating system. I called to ask for an extra blanket and was told they would check and let me know if they had any. Did not hear from them again.
Also be prepared to have people knocking on your door constantly, sometimes at 8 in the morning asking if you want your room cleaned. One time, the lady rang my doorbell and banged hard and continuously like her life depended on it. When you tell them to come back later, they want to know exactly when, and I had one particular girl tell me she would like to clean my room so that she could go home (so rude). This was a huge annoyance as I was on holiday, not to mention incredibly poor service attitude.
The walls are paper thin. My bedroom was on the opposite side of what I can only assume is the living room of a family living next door. In the morning, around 7am I can hear the baby crying and the sound of their TV. I can hear people chatting, and a child knocking on the wall with her toys. At one point, I was lying in bed and I could hear a telephone conversation someone was having on speakerphone. This was so frustrating because I am a light sleeper, and I value my resting time. So awful.
The ONLY thing worth a penny is the location. It is right across St Pauls Hospital and about a ten minute walk from Sogo and Windsor House.
To sum it up in one sentence, it was gloomy, cold, bothersome, and noisy. If you are desperate and need a place to stay for a few days this might suffice, but that is not possible because you can't rent for less than a month.
