It's a 10 minute walk from the tube station, I was arriving about 9pm (still light) but the atmosphere on Lawrence Road was not good. A very friendly lady wanted to speak to me (yes...), just on the other side of the road from the guest house. Since I had arrived late, I had to wait 30 minutes for someone to open up for me. Nowhere pleasant nearby to wait, so I kept moving. The guest house has a sort of riot-proof front door, quickly followed by another with a combination lock. I was told to make sure the windows of my room were kept shut during the day. I went to the kitchen to make myself a cup of tea, and the milk was past its sell by date, ugh. Wifi was fine, I thought I had reserved an en-suite bathroom which I didn't get, I didn't want to go out in the night for something to eat - left after 1 night.
Cheap it is, and the room is reasonable for the price, but I will not return since I was not comfortable in the area. It's not easy to find a good place in London, and I visit every 2 weeks, but this is the first time I have felt uncomfortable outside.
