Byng Place Apartments by Acorn

We have stayed at Byng Place several times in the past as it is a great location for access to local attractions such as the British Museum, has some good local restaurants and is well-placed for underground and bus services. The apartments are 'sound' and mostly well-maintained though far from luxurious. However, this was the smallest and worst of the apartments which we have ever been allocated and a great disappointment.

There are some points of detail which suggest a lack of proper monitoring of the housekeeping. The most noticeable problem was that on opening the apartment door there was a strong smell of cigarette smoke. Although all of the apartments (supposedly) are non-smoking, clearly a previous occupier had smoked heavily in there. The management can hardly be blamed for this but the housekeeping staff should have picked it up and had the apartment deep-cleaned before re-letting. On informing the office, they were clearly unaware of this. The duvet cover also was slightly grubby and stained. Providing just the one toilet roll for two people for a week is perhaps a little penny-pinching.

The apartment was generally adequately equipped though with only 2-3 place settings remained out of what we suspect was originally four - breakages had presumably not been made good. In consequence it was not realistic to invite another couple who we met in London to come round for lunch as we had planned - our previous apartments at Byng Place were more adequately provided with crockery. To their credit, the management provide both iron and ironing board but there is no hair dryer. There was a good TV but since it was fixed to the wall facing the table it was almost impossible to watch from the bed. Unlike other apartments we have rented in the same building, there was no sofa or other comfortable place to sit.

Byng Place is not the quietest of locations. It is opposite a student union building and on Friday night there was a large and noisy crowd outside until about 2.30am, but this seems to have been a one-off. More generally, the public seating outside the building seems to attract students who will sit and have discussions/arguments until around midnight. Add to that the residents in other apartments who seem unaware that when they return from a night out, their laughing and shouting might possibly disturb the sleep of others and peace and quiet is not the best description.

So, in conclusion, if you want a very convenient place to stay at a price which is not excessive and if you are also prepared to put up with the shortcomings, Byng Place is fine. If you value peace and quiet and are looking for comfort, then keep looking.

Single private bedrooms, location, free wifi , friendly staffs, big plus !

Provisions such as toiletries, kitchen utensils no luxury, but with the comparative lower price, it is acceptable.

In the height of summer , without air conditioner, it can be hot. Early morning up to 3-4 am street noises (the council had placed 2 round tables with chairs on the pavement, an invitation for gatherings at all hours !) right below the bedrooms , a little trying. Make sure you ask how many flight of stairs to your apartment.

No left lugguage facilities on the premise can be a little inconvenient.

22nd / 24th November. Excellent for both the size and the facilities. However, the 2 windows in the bedroom and the one window in the kitchen were all SINGLE glazed SASH windows - and, as such, they were grossly inefficient for both energy and sound. The rooms were warm because we were able to turn up the thermostats on the radiators, but the warmth was rapidly leaking from the windows as the cold air and all the street noise flooded in.

We had always stayed in local hotels but were fed up with the limitations this imposed. We were surprised to find we could rent an apartment for less than we were used to paying for a hotel room and expected there to be a catch. There is no catch! What we got was a studio with a bed/sitting room larger than any reasonably priced hotel room and with a kitchen/diner similarly large. The bathroom had a brilliant shower, though, alas, little by way of counter/shelf space and no hooks for towel/bathrobe (do no bathroom designers ever use their own creations?). The location was excellent - a few minutes walk from the bus stop in Gower St and not much further to Goodge St. Underground. Everything worked perfectly and although the furnishing was not luxurious, it was adequate and spotlessly clean. The only real omission was a hair dryer. The office staff were friendly and helpful. We will almost certainly be booking again for our next visit later this year.

The room had no proper air conditioning be it a window which can open more than two inches or even a fan to try and cool the room down! Disgraceful conditions to have to try and sleep through with no proper ventilation. NEVER AGAIN

The apartment was excellent,however, was a little on the chilly side in the room but apart from that couldn't fault it.
