Stayed for fourteen nights and was impressed at the rate for the one bedroom apartment. It was a good size with a separate bedroom and a balcony. There was basic essentials on arrival and the kitchen had what I needed. Reception is hidden, when you get in to the car park off the main road, drive down to the end (towards the river) of the Holborn building and its on your right.
The construction did not bother me as I worked all day but when they started early I had the balcony door closed and you could hardly hear it. As for the trains, its not as bad as reviews I read, anyway what's so offensive about the distant sound of a train?
Housekeeping was okay, no issues to complain about. No stairs involved if you are carrying luggage from your car, easy lift access.
I would absolutely stay here again. Oh and the bed was comfortable.
Room 26 is on the sixth floor and did not face the construction sites.
