Alexander Fleming House is located in the business district of London, near to St Paul's Cathedral and the Barbican Arts Centre. The halls consist of three separate buildings with private single study bedrooms of 4/6 or 8 in self-contained flats with wash basins. The bathroom and kitchen/diner is shared only with the other occupants of the flat.

Situated on a pleasant paved piazza, this hall is ideal for the traveller wanting to get a real feel for the sights and sounds of London.

This part of London is very diverse in its culture and atmosphere, attracting artists and designers as well as large financial institutions and banks. Close by are the colourful markets of the East End as well as the more traditional tourist sights.

There are good transport links to the West End and theatre land. The halls are also safe, clean and secure with friendly staff on hand to make sure your stay is a happy and memorable one.

With regret children are not permitted at this residence as there is a limit to 1 person per bedroom and children are not allowed to stay in a bedroom by themselves.

I really enjoyed my stay, the location was fantastic and the room was spotless. Although the building isn't new, the all facilities are quite modern. The only slight minus was that the room was extremely warm - but that's definitely preferable to it being too cold, so not too much of a problem. Will be booking again.

FOR A VERY BASIC ROOM IN CENTRAL LONDON , Alexdr Fleming is very good value - typical student residence with shared shower facilities but really very cheap accommodation . There is a nightclub opposite but even that , is not too noisy . A supermarket , smaller food shops , a laundrette and coffee shops are very nearby . Handy for Old Street tube and city centre . You get what you pay for but this is a good accommodation choice for the budget traveller .

Very clean and new looking, did not have the 'used' quality that some student rooms have. I will be happy to book here again
Ms Judy C

Very good wifi. Basic but very clean room and shared bathroom. I asked for a quiet room and was housed on the top floor, which was really good.
Mrs Carol B

Good place to lodge for the location in the heart of London
Mr Angelo V

A good room for the price... and the staff were helpful. Downside was no lift!
Mrs Kay B

Outstanding place to stay. Very highly recommend staying here.
Mr Karl T

Accommodation was as you would expect student accommodation to be; basic and does what it needs to do. The block was peaceful, so I was able to get a good nights sleep before dancing all day the following day.
