A nightmare in London
Why did you do that to me? The worst thing was that heating didn't work. I had to wear outdoor wamer to sleep. Why did you do that to me? Is anybody hear to have experience about a bed with the frame of which height is higher than a mattress so you cannot help hitting legs whenever you get into the bed. Why did you do that to me? Water tap was rusty as it was that one in the horror movie. Why did you do that to me? No sign for hot and cold water in the shower. Only way to find out the proper temperature is to sacrifice your skin to feel it. The structure of the shower booth in which you cannot be out is a bonus. The room might be the cheapest one in the Harrington. However, there must me minimum standard to which the customers expect. It is a kind of fundamental trust that must be met in any business. If I had enough energy to step out I might have jump out... 13 hours flight and next moring flight schedule made me hesitate to do. A nightmare started like that... Why did you do that to me? Why?

Fair 4.0
Perfect location, Terrible room and the condition!
Really old building, old bedroom and bad bathroom comparing to the high room rate! Location is one perfect thing, just the service apartment is too old. The service was not that bad, however, I would want to amend the booking date as my partner got the visa issue and will arrive later date, but they refused for the change nor for the help nor suggestion! Very High deposit, need to prepare cash or credit card during the stay, really bad as it isn’t 5 stars hotel but room deposit was charged as 5 stars hotel!

Wonderful for a longer stay
Having a proper kitchen for my 2 week stay was terrific. I had a one bedroom apt. The kitchen had an induction cooktop, full oven, microwave, electric kettle and decent size fridge (no freezer). All cookware and dishware was supplied. While there are some chips in the furniture and the place could use a sprucing up, everything was very clean and the staff were all friendly and helpful. The bathroom lighting was excellent for putting on makeup. The Wifi was great. The location is perfect; just down the road from the Gloucester Road tube station (so an easy trip to & from Heathrow). Everything you need is located along Gloucester Road: There is a huge Waitrose supermarket, a Tesco Express (open 24 hrs), Starbucks, Pret and many other restaurants. Easy to walk to museums. I would (and will) stay there again

Great room, but some renovations at the moment.
Small apartment but in lovely condition, very clean and in room amenities as described. However, the hotel reception and general building seem to be undergoing renovations. We chose the hotel because it advertises fitness facilities. There are none, which is disappointing given it says there are. Reception is currently squished into an office space. Why not tell customers in advance????

The location of the apartments was excellent being close to the tube, supermarket and nice places to grab meals. The staff were very helpful and professional. The only thing I would say is that the rooms are very stuffy, even with the air conditioner on.(the air conditioner is also quite noisy) We opened the windows which helped a bit but it was still difficult to sleep. There is also no handrail in the bath/shower which makes it a bit slippery when getting out of the over bath shower.The bed is also a double bed which makes for a close sleeping relationship with your partner 😁 The pillows are very firm also but as this is a personal preference others may like them. There is also no laundry in the building but a laundrette is located about 10 minute walk away.The location and staff are the best thing about this place.
