Excellent service. Recommended!

The people who helped me to sign the contract were always fast and effective. They provided me with quick information and helped to secure me a nice place In London at ease. I am very pleased with Mr Rahul and a few others who have given me everything I needed to know...

My Staying Experience

The overall experience in the Chapter Old Street is good. Despite during the construction period, the construction team is not that professional because they leave some dust inside my room. Fortunately, the staff at the reception helped me resolve this issue.
