“Excellent Value. Fantastic Hotel Concept.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

Let's face it, accommodation in London tends to be relatively expensive and not particularly good. Flexistay Aparthotel in Tooting is bucking this trend refreshingly. The rates are very competitive and the rooms are relatively large, clean and tastefully, albeit simply appointed. Each room is equipped with it's own fridge and microwave. Shower pressure was excellent. Another great touch was the inclusion of a large shower gel/shampoo combo in the en suit. Some rooms also have hotplates. The tea/coffee/hot chocolate supplies are remarkably generous. I was even supplied with energy bars and tasty chocolate biscuits. Perhaps the best aspect of the hotel is the 24 hour breakfast. Expect large quantities of fresh eggs, bacon, sausages, cereal, milk, juice and cold meats. The communal areas are comfortable and well appointed. Expect washing machines, dryers, hotplates, ovens with extractor fans, dining room tables, comfortable seating, together with clean white cutlery and crockery. Don't expect a formal welcome by a uniformed member of staff. This being said, every employee I dealt with was eager to help. This is one of the few hotels in London where one doesn't leave feeling ripped off. Keep up the good work! The hotel is about 7-10 minutes walk from Tooting Broadway Tube Station.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room on a higher floor.

My partner and I stayed for two nights, we had a double en suite room on the top floor, everything had been thought of in the room: ironing board, iron, hairdryer, shower gel, liquid handsoap, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cereal bars, cookies, table top fridge, sky tv with sports and movie channels. It certainly felt like a home from home, the shared kitchen was well stocked with breakfast items, it also had a cooker, microwave, toaster, washing machine and tumble dryer, and a separate fridge to store your personal food items in. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in London and we would stay there again with hesitation.

I've had to do a lot of travelling to London recently, so have stayed in many a budget hotel and this is by far and away the best! The staff are so helpful, the room was clean and comfortable. I've never left a review before but this one deserves it!

Against B&B prices and standards elsewhere in the country, even London’s budget hotels are extortionate. Which - given a necessary tweak or two - makes this multi-house, self-catering place in a suburban side street really good value if you simply want a place to put your head for a night or three in the capital. Not for a romantic weekend, though. The two bathrooms in my house were shared.
The Tooting Flexistay has clearly been done up on a very tight budget but everywhere was very clean and the basics are there – TV, ironing board, hair dryer, kettle plus a surprisingly good selection of drinks and biscuits. Not everywhere provides hot chocolate for ‘decaffeinated’ people!
The only negative factor for that low (for London) price was the bedding. Judging by how clean the rest of the place was, the bedding had probably been washed - at least I hope so. It wasn’t dirty but it definitely hadn’t been ironed, and made me wonder if I was hot bunking with someone. If they can get the bedlinen looking fresher, they’ve got a budget winner here.

We stayed there for 5 nights. Overall the place is ok - relatively clean, staff is friendly, a shared kitchen with food is good for budget travellers, close to tube station, lots of shops around the area.

However, the insulation of the building is very poor. The floor is laminlated (simulated) hard wood. It looks nice and clean but it is VERY noisy when the tenants walk on the floor above your room. It is even worse at night when you try to sleep. You can also hear your "neighbors" talk or flush the toilet.

The washroom in our suite is very tiny. It is a bit difficult to move around if you are a big person.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor so you won't get disturbed by noise from people walking on the w...

Staff members: easy and friendly, they shown me both the common facilities and my room.

Room: 2nd floor in a traditional brick-made 2 floors house, narrow and steep wooden stairs. Big room, totally refurbished, clean and comfortable, king size bed. Internet wifi included and power adapters available. Sat-tv. Small toilet/bathroom but really ok. No hair drier. Bit mouldy on the roof over the shower cabin. Small snacks and drinks included (orange juice, chocolate, coffee, cookies).

Shared Kitchen: there's room for everybody. Lot of food and drinks in the fridge for breakfast or snacks (included): milk, juice, sausages, ham, cheese, bread, eggs, mayo and so on. Really well maintained and clean.

Location: 5-10' walking from Tooting Broadway station, Northern line, 12 stops from Leicester square (about 20'). Nice and quite.
