Rooms nothing like the pictures. No nice pictures on the walls, no throws or cushions and the walls were badly scuffed. Everything was bland and unmaintained.
Walls thin as paper... Could actually hear the neighbours cutlery on their plates as they ate, heard the neighbour snoring, constant noise throughout the night.
Met a couple of ladies the next morning in the lift as I went to get a hair dryer from reception. They were as unhappy as I was about the accommodation.
Free wifi was available from the small reception area only, and unfortunately I could not get 4G in the basement located 'apartment' (had to use apostrophes here... It hurts to even refer to the cell we had as an apartment).
Further, the fire door outside our 'apartment' closing mechanism did not work meaning the door did not close, even when pushed to. Somewhat disconcerting as this appears to be one of the firebreaks between two of the buildings making up the apartment blocks.
One other disturbing safety factor, the external door was wedged wide open. We entered at 11.30pm with not even a look up from the night receptionist (who I couldn't see as he was not sat at the reception, but in the little office at the side of it. The door was open and I turned and looked in. He did not even notice). Not sure what the point of the security fob they gave me when I checked in.
On the street, prior to entering their was groups of young men sat around together outside the hostel a few houses down, and another scruffy building between Hyde park exe. apartments and the hostel. It did not feel particularly safe. You can imagine my concern that the apartments were not even secure with the door wedged open.
This was not a good experience by any stretch of the imagination. Find somewhere else is my advice. Whether you take that advice or not is up to you.
