Needed to stay in London on business and was looking for something affordable and close to the City (Square Mile). Found this studio which looked great and cheap. I stayed in Flat 1 which faces Caledonian Road.
It would have been excellent - BUT the small print is that they have a fixed check in window of 2pm to 5pm (which is IN most people's working hours) and if you can't do this, they will charge you £30!!!!! I just feel 5pm isn't honest - it's designed to catch people out. But at least, the landlord/manager did text me with plenty of notice and I was able to get there and avoid the charge.
Hotels.com needs to highlight these additions, as well as the "cleaning fees" which are now increasingly common and often hidden.
The flat itself is quite comfortable. One of the previous reviews said that she was concerned the same key opens ALL apartments - this is not the case - lock manufacturers can ensure all keys can open a common lock (being the main door) whilst providing access only to the assigned flat.
Amenities were basic but comfortable. A kitchenette provided a microwave / convection oven, and even two hotplates if you were feeling adventurous.
The windows definitely open AND close (despite the other review), but bear in mind this is a main road with quite a bit of noise.
Bathroom was excellent!
Please note: there is no desk provided. There were two chairs and a coffee table. So if you had hours of work to do (which I did), you will have to use your lap.
