“Excellent Flat in a Great Area”
Submitted: January 10, 2013
Stayed: August 2010
We visited London in August of 2010 and rented a flat through Ivy Lettings - I've been meaning to review for a while now! We worked with Guy to rent the Hollywood Road flat and he was very responsive, as we dealt mostly by email. No problems at all. His colleague (name?) met us upon our arrival and took us through the apartment, answering any questions we had. They left a nice booklet of information on favorite restaurants, activities, tube stations nearby.
The flat was lovely, clean and well worth it. In fact, we most likely saved money by staying in a flat instead of a hotel, eating breakfast in on most days (there are nice bakeries down the street). All of the furnishing were tasteful and clean - including everything we could need in the kitchen. The veranda was large and delightful.
Large windows look out on a nice little road with not a lot of noise. The Hollywood Arms pub is across the street and it was a little loud once or twice at closing time, but not a bother. In fact, we loved the pub and wished we could have spent more time over there -- we only made it in on our last night of the trip. We tried earlier, but after a certain time, our 9-year old could not be in the pub -- something to keep in mind if you are late diners like we are. We were turned down by a few places after they noticed we had a kid with us.
Nevertheless, the area is a perfect place to stay. The neighborhood is safe and we were quite close to everything - shops, restaurants, Tesco down the street.
I would highly recommend this address and working with Ivy Lettings. I will definitely do so if I am fortunate enough to return to London!
