Dr Jamie Goodwin-White, October 2012: I regularly come to London and will stay many times again. I stayed at Alexander Fleming House at a point in time just before I moved to the US (after my lease in London was up). It was a stressful time for me as I had many things to do and people to see before I moved countries. All of the staff at the front desk and housekeeping staff were exceptional -- both helpful and incredibly pleasant. I specially want to thank Sinead, who arranged for my favourite coat I left behind to be shipped to the US. Thanks so much!
Mr Michael Smyth, October 2012: Always happy to stay at Alexander Fleming House . Unbeatable value for money . I will stay again if available .
Ms Rachel Whitfield, October 2012: V friendly welcome. Room v clean.
Mrs Felicity Walker, September 2012: I found the staff friendly and helpful. They changed my towels daily which I wasn't expecting. When there was noise at night security managed to quieten it down so I enjoyed my stay and pleased to find a bath not just a shower. I'd stay again. The room was clean, had enough storage and the bed was comfortable. Having free wifi made it cheaper than a youth hostel would be for a single room and better than most.
Mr David Lewis, August 2012: Room was good, as to be expected from the description.
Mrs Shirley Packwood, August 2012: Immaculately clean at all times.
Mr Geoff Davison, August 2012: For the money, excellent value--very clean and convenient

Mr Stephen Leicester, June 2012: I was very impressed with the room and location and hope to

Mr Jonathan Pearson, June 2012: Basic but clean student room with shared access to bathroom and kitchen which were also clean. More comfortable bed than Travelodge (not difficult!). Free WiFi a bonus, especially as there's no TV. Recommended.
Mr Richard Walker, June 2012: Friendly staff, great location
Miss Caroline Black, June 2012: excellent value for money.
Miss Emily Couvreur, June 2012: I had a great stay and I feel that, overall, the experience was great.
I would have liked the bathroom to have been a bit cleaner (although I understand that you do not clean these for guests who are staying in non-ensuite accommodation!)
Overall, I was very happy with my stay.
Mr Christian Rassi, June 2012: good central location
Miss Angela McClelland, June 2012: Had some trouble with my key, and then with the internet... which meant I had to climb up and down an inordinate number of stair cases on arrival. Other than that, everything was perfect.. and a whole lot better than the similarly priced budget hotels I've been staying in.
Mr Claus Gaertner, June 2012: totally happy that i found this perfect place located in the centre of London.
Mr Eric Bewley, June 2012: Good value secure, quiet (except for loud closing doors), clean accommodation. Used kitchen for breakfast and evening meals which was good. Close to bus and tube - would stay again.
Mr Mark Lindsey, August 2011: Very good. Pleasant helpful staff. Would recommend.
Ms Donna Kozloskie, August 2011: The staff at Fleming House was great! It was difficult to find the facilities but once I did it was a prefect, quiet place to sleep & shower!
Daniel Hough, August 2010: The doors are very loud when they close, even when being careful - maybe put some padding things in? Otherwise great, and the staff are excellent, very helpful and really friendly.
Peter Seiler, August 2010: The value for money is very good. It is also pleasant having a chat with other people whilst staying in an accomodation.
I will come again !
