Good Rental in the Heart of Central London

The location of this apartment is unbeatable. Walking distance from Trafalgar Square, steps from Charing Cross and Embankment tube stations, and just behind the Strand but in a very quiet cul-de-sac. We were able to get to all the main tourist spots within 5-15 minutes by tube. The grocery store was a 10-minute walk away. The apartment provides a washer-dryer and dishwasher. Do note that both machines need some finagling to work them, but once you have it figured out, they work well. The bed in the bedroom was adequate, the larger pull-out bed in the living room was so-so, the smaller one is best not used. Overall, better housekeeping and cleanliness would greatly improve the living experience. Do note that the owner has appointed someone else for in-person contact and housekeeping, and this person was less than helpful. Also the apartment is on the top floor and with the lift out, it meant climbing up eight flights of stairs. However, since we didn't spend much time in the apartment, it worked for us. Best of all, the owner was very helpful and responsive over the phone and email. This made the entire experience worth it. And again, I cannot stress more that the perfect location in combination with the price makes it a good rental.
