We had one night booked in London and needed another one. This was available for a decent price so we booked it. As the prior reviewer stated, it's close to bus stops and not too far from the Seven Sisters stop on the Victoria Line of the Tube. However, this was definitely in an area where tourists don't normally go. We were let in to our room, which was cleaned up nicely. We didn't feel too comfortable with having just a blanket to be covered with, and a sheet on the mattress. Makes me wonder how often the blankets are washed; I would advise to have a few layers of sheets before the actual blanket. There was a kitchen that we could have used, and a sitting area outside.
We dropped our bags off during the day, paid cash to the cleaning girl, who had the manager on the phone, and went to explore the city. At night we returned and had to go through some smaller darker streets, and because it seemed like a much poorer part of the city, it didn't feel too safe. Although the window was closed, it seemed like the whole wall was open, because we heard loud teenagers who seemed to have picked the street as their meeting area. Normally it wouldn't be so troubling, but this was from midnight on...
Won't stay here again but appreciated being able to see the other part of London that normally isn't for tourists.
