  • 6.0.Good

    The property is a typical university residence but a little over priced since parking is a problem and the staff were not really professional. The lack of WiFI in the rooms and lack of plug ins was a problem. It is marginally cheaper than a hotel and more expensive than university residences in downtown London (UK). For me, the value for money was not great and I’d suggest that an Air B&B or regular hotel is a better option.
