I booked this flat after reading all the great reviews and I can now tell you that the place was even better than I had hoped it would be. The location is ideal. Two blocks/less than five minutes (it was cold, on a warm day it's a one minute walk tops!) from the Tube and if you want to just grab a bite/pint nearby, there are many places within easy walking distance. The place felt super safe for me (a single female traveling alone) - gated entry and private access to your unit. The room was immaculate and well appointed. The bed was comfortable. There was ample space (and nice hangers) to hang your clothes and many drawers for storage. The owners provided a converter for your electronics, but they also stock a good quality hair dryer AND straightener!!
The room has books on travel in London and maps, so you don't have to bring your own. The washer/dryer worked great. You do have to bring your own toiletries, but for people like me who forget -- there were plenty of extras under the sink left by prior renters. When I went it was snowing and really cold outside, but the unit stayed nice and toasty (I like it extra warm).
The owners were extremely helpful when I had some questions when I first got in and responded immediately. Very friendly and accomodating, I can't stress that enough. The rental agency was also very helpful throughout the rental process and the stay.
Everything was as advertised. The wifi was perfect -- fast and reliable. It was great having access to a local phone as well. If I had a complaint it would be the same for every place I stayed in London -- the showers tend to flood the surrounding floor. Try full shower curtains, England!!
To sum up -- the pictures and descriptions don't lie! You will be very happy here!
