This is a nice apartment for the price. It is nothing fancy but has all of the amenities that we needed and it was nice to have workable sized kitchen and also a living room to relax in separately from the bedrooms. We did have a few issues during our stay (incorrect internet password given, we blew a fuse and had no hot water, etc) but the owner was quick to respond and helped resolved all problems. It isn't super close to London but we had no problem getting into the city. It certainly was closer to a 15 minute trip than 40 minutes (depending on where we went). I enjoyed all the shops and restaurants in the area and it was a nice walk to the Metro. My girls said the bunk bed mattresses were uncomfortable but for a few nights stay, it worked out okay.
