I took my two teenage children to London and we stayed in this apartment for 6 days. The apartment was very easy to get to from Heathrow, and required only one Underground change at Holborn (there are other options as well). It is a short walk across the street from the Liverpool Street Station which services three Underground lines and area trains as well. That was the best thing about this apartment - ease of access to the Underground and thus the rest of London. The neighborhood is bustling and it was fun to watch all the people walking the streets at all hours. The door to the building is just to the right of Dirty Dick's Pub. Across a side street is another pub, Wooden Shades. We ate there twice and I would recommend it. The apartment does not have air conditioning. This concerned me upon arrival, but during our stay, even the London "heat wave" did not make the apartment uncomfortable. We had the windows open all the time. My experience so far with vacation rentals is that things always look better in the pictures. That was the case with this apartment. The rooms were small. One had a bathroom attached, but the way the doors are situated, the bathroom was difficult to access. The other bathroom adjoins the hallway. The kitchen has the basics, and has no windows. I accidentally shut off the refrigerator not being used to a power switch for such an appliance on the wall. My kids each took a bedroom. I slept on one of the futons in the living room. They are not very comfortable. The building has a tiny elevator to get you up to the apartment. We were met by one of the rental staff who explained the basics. It felt very secure. The wifi was totally reliable. If you are looking for basic (certainly not luxury) accommodations in a very convenient location, then this apartment would fit your needs. There was a TESCO grocery store just a half a block away. There are several restaurants in the area. We ate at a very good Indian restaurant less than a block away - Dil Chad. The Tower of London is a 15 - 20 minute walk towards the Thames.
