Very nice area. But Building infested with vermin. No night staff (staff are present from 9-4 on weekdays, during holiday there are NO staff present for duration of holiday), poor security, no cctv except on the ground floor. Site manager and handyman both smoke like chimneys. Site manager lied to my face several times because he couldn't be bothered to do something I'd requested. Very overpriced accommodation, could be excused with "Oh but it's Central London", if anything worked that is. Lifts are always breaking down and have no lights in them. Kitchen appliances are broken in most flats according to what I can tell. Mine had a broken oven and a broken dishwasher, and the heater in my room would automatically turn itself off every 10 minutes. Social events for students are few and far between, and are on the whole pretty pathetic and patronising. The pipes need to be looked at. The water that comes from the taps is disgusting. Bottled water is a must if living here.
