This was alright a bit pricey but in a good area.
Rubbish Internet; Very inconvenient location; customer service with Londonist is extremely poor; a bell from the church rings nearby every day including Sunday morning; fire alarm rings occasionally; residents smoke and play music out loud outside the hall; CONSTRUCTION and DWELLING in the corridor FOR TWO MONTHS without previous notice. Won't even stay here for 1 week even it's free. If you have extra money, go and throw into the river instead of staying here.
Located far enough out to be inconvenient but close enough to have a high cost, Chapter Portobello has been the worst accommodation I've ever lived in. Run as a business, money is what comes first and everything else is secondary. The gym is poorly maintained, there is no library except those abandoned books from previous tenants, and the "cinema" is only really used for the odd event that people only show up to so that they can grab some free food and leave. If you have the chance, avoid this place and look elsewhere. The one good thing is that, between the staff (avoid the nightshift, but daytime can be ok) and stack of inconveniences, I've certainly reinforced my love of traveling!
