One of the perks of being a Silver Rewards member with Hotels.com is that every now and again, they send outrageously good deals on city hotels – which in itself is enough justification for a weekend away. This time around, we stayed at Studios 2 Let Serviced Apartments – which isn’t quite a hotel, but for a single night stay it serves the same purpose.
Located about two minutes walk from London Euston, Studios 2 Let was a little tricky to find – the instructions could definitely have been a little clearer, but with the help of Apple Maps (!) we arrived. A member of staff showed us to our apartment / room and provided us with a WiFi code, then left us to it.
While the room / apartment was pretty small, it was well-arranged and didn’t feel cramped. The bed was small, but one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in – and perhaps most importantly, it was quiet – unlike most budget London hotels. I’m not sure I could live there long-term, which some of its visitors seem to do, but for a couple of nights it was more than sufficient. The room was also well within range of the free WiFi they offer, and it was as quick and reliable as can be expected from hotel WiFi (big step up from the hotels that only offer WiFi in public areas!).
Our room had its own en-suite, which while very small (see below), was perfectly sufficient and the shower was hot and powerful – a big plus. The complimentary toiletries (which I stupidly didn’t get a picture of) were great – two sets of everything, including a toothbrush.
The room also had a television, and everything required to cook (pans, brushes, cutlery and crockery) and both a fridge and a freezer. As for the actual food, there is a small shopping complex with a Waitrose about five minutes away, and a Tesco a little further on than that.
Arguably the most important part of the stay. There was no noise from outside or from other residents (whether this is down to good silencing or just quiet guests, I don’t know), no bugs and no weird noises – so a fantastic nights sleep.
Studios 2 Let Serviced Apartments provided us with a comfortable nights stay and the facilities to cook our own food – all for less than half the price of most hotels in London (granted, with a discount code). The staff were friendly and we had a great nights sleep. Highly recommended budget hotel.
