4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
This property is conveniently located near the North Acton train station on the Central line of the London Underground. I didn't enjoy the dormitory feel of the place, with heavy security and surveillance at every point. It felt like I didn't have as much privacy as I would at a regular hotel.
