Clean & comfortable.
The convenient position, the low price (compared to average prices in London), the kindness of the staff.
The room was really little larger than the bed. It was actually clean, but everything in the house (including the bathroom, the stairs, etc) gives an impression of wretchedness. They gave us two towels for two people in five days and never changed them. It was a little too noisy, but that depends also on the behaviour of other guests.
the location is awesome, and the price is more than fair. It is small but clean. The bathroom is okay.
Cool ! shared bathroom. neat and efficient.
I actually don't know where to begin. From what i could make out of the initial add we would be alone in an appartment with bathroom and kitchen. To my surprise there were 2 other rooms occupied and we had to share the kitchen and bathroom.
Let's start with the kitchen. True, it looked nice at first glance. But taking a closer look i noticed that the furnace wasn't working very well. One of the gas hobs didn't fit very well, so it sometimes performed more like a flamethrower. Besides that it was covered in black stains and in an overall sorry state. The locking mechanism of the kitchen window wasn't working at all. We had to place an adaptor found in one of the kitchen drawers to keep it firmly shut.
The amount of knives was below average. Assuming that all the rooms would be occupied, there were 2 knives available for 8 persons.
The bathroom was something else completely. Taking a shower was difficult because of the screwthread that holds the shower head together failed completely. We had to clamp the showerhead between some rail and the wall to get it to spray in the right direction. The bathtub had black stains near the drain. The sidecover of the bathtub was loose at the bottom part, so when entering we regularly came in contact with the edge pointing outwards. The showercurtain was loose in the middle; one of the attachment points was completely rusted through, and at that spot was water dripping out from the ceiling. The taps had to be firmly shut to keep the water from dripping.
Not to mention the doors. Due to the lack of proper doorhandles the doors from both the toilet and the bathroom had to be closed by some sort of bolt.
We were told that the rooms would be cleaned on a regular basis. We stayed for a whole week, and not once our room was cleaned, or the sheets of our beds changed.
Ending with the floorcovering in both the kitchen, toilet as well as the central hall which very much needs replacement, i hope to have made my mark.
The owner (as far as i could see from Indian origin?) told me in a proud way that the property was his. I don't know much about the living standard in India, but for us this was a bit below average.
Very nice room, I would go back.
Everything was very nice. I was very pleased.
Nice place to sleep in! Speended 5 nights and it was okay. That it was central was the part me and my friend like a lot! Never got the changes to meet Marco but he was friendly over the phone and help us when we needed some. Can recemend it!
