The staff at the front desk are friendly, but they do poor maintenance. 1) Some rooms have no openable window. 2) The air conditioning system is terrible; some rooms are too cold, some rooms are too hot. It can get up to 28C some nights in my house because I cannot turn off my heating. 3) The air circulation is awful. The smell of your dinner will linger all night.
Excellent location: very close to North Acton tube station (Central Line), with Tesco, Sainsbury's and a gym only a few feet away. The internet quality is good. There have been events for socializing on various occasions (e.g. Halloween), but I have not attended any due to my program. The social space is quite good, with a nice view and comfortable furnishings, but I have never seen other people hanging out there. I have had some really bad experiences in my flat (dirty flat upon arrival, 10 days without heating in November, 1 week without light in the bathroom) and the laundry service (extremely dirty washing machines), that were eventually dealt with. However, the manager only took notice and sorted things out belatedly, that is after I made some serious complaints. It should be noted that the people who work here are very kind and helpful, but there seems to be a lack of coordination and prioritizing. Overall, a good hall, but overpriced like most student halls in London.
My room is spacious,has a great view. The staffs are very kind and helpful. I have no issue with maintenance as they resolve my issues the next day. The environment is clean Great terrace with amazing view. The hall is calm: you can sleep peacefully at night or take a nap. Everything is in proximity: The tube is 2min walk: great when you are running late for classes. We have shops or even superstores few stops away! environment is amazing HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS HALL!! Especially those who never travelled before, there will be no worries ,as you’ll be safe in this hapl
Lovely place, just way too expensive for a student. Poor internet connection on smart TVs
