Where to begin. This is the worst accommodation humanly possible in London as a student. Just to begin some of the problems we've had: the lift wasn't working for 6+ months, hot water has now been out for over 2 weeks (we have to shower at a local gym), there are leaks on multiple floors, our wifi has been going in and out. And that's just in the last 10 months. The company refuses to invest any of the plenty of money they get from high rents back into the building. Although on the surface it may look nice, underneath are the poorest quality heating, pipes, and electricity requiring constant maintenance. I have lived here for about 2 years and have often considered terminating my contract early - but legally they won't let me! The building is only 1/3 filled for a reason: it's a horrible place to live.
