Bait-and-switch: What we were given was a different apartment (with 5 days notice)

  • 1 of 5

We booked this property because of the location (Doughty Street) and the specific details in the property description provided by the manager. After the rent was paid (32 days before arrival) we asked for the address. The property manager refused to give it to us, saying it would be provided 7 days prior to arrival. In fact, 5 days prior, we were told we would be in a different apartment on Gray's Inn Road, which is a noisy, busy, and unattractive thoroughfare. I called the manager, who said that the property we leased had already been rented at the time we booked, and that when this happens, they give renters the option of an upgrade (e.g., 2 BR rather than 1) in a different property. I objected that this is not what happened, and that we'd attempted to verify the location when we booked but had been told the address would be provided later. I said that the location was not what we wanted. We were offered another location even further from where we wished to be. However, it was 5 days prior to arrival and there was no realistic chance of finding another place, so we had little choice but to take the apartment we were assigned. In fact, it was clean and the 2 BR provided additional space. So it wasn't a disaster. But in no way did it resemble the photos shown on the page for this property, and the location on Grey's Inn was a disappointment. And it was upsetting to be victims of a bait-and-switch. Thus, when you read the other reviews, be aware that most describe the property on Doughty Street and not what you might end up getting. If the owner does not confirm the location prior to the 30 day period for refunds, I would steer clear of this company. The poor communication should've been a tip off to us beforehand. We've now learned our lesson.

Quite serviceable for a short stay

  • 3 of 5

Great location. Clean, tidy, fully functional flat. No frills. No warmth as it is basically a hotel room. Be sure to mind the hours as there are no early arrivals allowed. The office is located in the building (lower floor) but getting in can be frustrating as there seems to be a general lack of coordination between the booking office and the on-premises staff. Once in and settled you will enjoy the convenience of the neighborhood with nearby shopping and easy access to the British Museum, parks and the West End.

Clean, quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property is very comfortable, clean and, in the bedroom at least, very quiet. It is located at the front of the building on the main floor so the main living area can have some street noise but it is not bad.

It is not really close to the Tube stations but you can grab a bus on Gray's Inn Road if you prefer a shorter walk.

We enjoyed the Duke of York pub which is just around the corner to the south.

Breakfast is a bit sketchy but the apartment is very well equiped and the bed is comfortable.

I would highly recommend this rental for a couple looking for a nice place to return to after a day of touring.

Exactly What We Wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This flat was exactly what we wanted for our week-long holiday in London. The flat is very well renovated and fitted with great decorations, furnishings, appliances, and bathroom.

It was such a joy to come home from a long day of walking to watch some cable on the 40" television in the living room, use the wifi to plan our next day, eat a meal cooked in the oven, and then rest our heads on a comfortable bed in the cozy bedroom and fall asleep watching "How It's Made."

The living area is exactly like you see in the photos. The two windows look out onto Doughty Street, which was nice and quiet compared to most streets. There's a great view of the Dickens museum, which we highly recommend a visit to!

Ocky Paller, who rented us this flat through BluePrint Living Apartments, was very helpful, professional, and kind. I would recommend looking through BluePrint Living's other flats as well if you'd like to stay elsewhere around London. blueprintlivingapartments.com

I will absolutely rent from BluePrint Living again in the future, as long as they are still in operation the next time my wife and I visit London. This flat exceeded my expectations and gave us a feeling of home as soon as we stepped into it. If we could, we would happily move to London and purchase this specific flat from BluePrint. It is spacious for two and yet reasonable in it's location and size. This isn't a touristy place, with maps and guides and staff who try to take you around town. This is a very professional company who provide a tea basket, soaps and cleaning supplies, and all of the little things that you would need for your stay. We aren't new to London and wanted a flat where we could feel like we were just living our lives in London. And this is exactly what we wanted.

Thank you, Ocky and BluePrint, for making our holiday a very comfortable and exceptional experience.
