The view, the view, the view

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time in London, and the flat was perfect. We stayed 8 nights. Transportation from the flat was easy and convenient. The place had all the wanted appliances and utensils needed. The beds were very comfortable ,but most of all the view was spectacular. Would definitely recommend.

Poor Management Communication

  • 1 of 5

The flat was spacious & in a nice area. As others reported, it could have used a thorough cleaning and tiny red ants were everywhere. Although unpleasant, neither of these things prompted me to give a negative review. Our issue arose from difficulty in communicating with the owner/staff. As our arrival date approached, I emailed Zoe repeatedly to confirm rental details & to request an early check in. After a few weeks of sending emails without receiving a reply, I started calling and even trying to Skype her. Two days before our departure I finally contacted her through a secondary owner number listed on VRBO. She confirmed an early check in of approx.12:00-12:30pm was ok and told me the cleaner would meet us at the flat. If they were not there, we were to contact her to receive a lock box code to retrieve a key from inside. When we arrived at 12:00, the previous renters were still there but the cleaner was not so we waited outside. When the cleaner had not arrived by 12:15, we tried to call/Skype Zoe, her office and the cleaner but were unable to make contact. At 12:35, the previous renters left the flat and gave us the key. The cleaner still had not arrived so we entered the flat & again tried to make contact with someone but to no avail. Finally, we left our suitcases along with a note explaining the situation and left for a few hours. Thankfully, the flat had been cleaned when we returned that evening. I also encountered trouble having my security deposit refunded. I emailed Zoe many times over the course of a few weeks requesting the return of our security deposit, but did not hear back. Finally, I emailed I would be reporting the issue to VRBO if I did not hear back from her. She responded that the deposit was being held by VRBO and would be automatically returned to me within a week. After a week had passed, I contacted VRBO to ask about the deposit. They replied “VRBO does NOT hold any funds with regards to your deposit. The owner has to go into the system manually and initiate the refund. Once initiated, it will take 3-5 business days to get back to you.” They said that they would forward the matter to the owner so that she could respond to me. After a few days without hearing from her, I emailed Zoe again repeating what VRBO had told me. She never responded to this personally but within 10 minutes, I received a VRBO email indicating that our security deposit was refunded. It was almost a month from the time we had checked out.

Nice location. Fair cleanliness

  • 3 of 5

Property manager was very responsive and always responded to email and even text messages when we arrived. She even allowed us to leave our luggage in apartment early in the morning before actual check in time. Wifi was adequate for me to catch up with work. Location is good with walking to grocery store and local bus and underground. Close access to Thames river makes running there very convenient. Nice to be on 8th floor with ample breeze and night view of Thames river was pretty.

Down side: ants in the house. We arrived before house was cleaned and there was a large cluster of ants in the kitchen over some leftover food. We only ate breakfast in the apartment. Did not cook there. I tried to keep the place clean but can still see an ant here and there. They even managed to get in my laptop. Shower pressure was dismal. Dryer keeps stopping multiple times requiring restart.

Ants and dirthy

  • 2 of 5

The only thing going there is the location. There are ants everywhere, the furniture is old and not comfurtable. We never use the kitchen since all the cabinets were dirthy. CLEAN THE APPARTEMENT IF YOU WANT TO RENT THIS AGAIN!!!

Needs Improvements

  • 2 of 5

Overall - it can be an OK place to stay that is reasonably priced for the size and location if things get fixed and your expectations are not too high. However, there are many problems - some that can be easily fixed. The biggest problem was that there were ants in the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen needs a deep cleaning - the toaster was loaded with crumbs, the pots were left dirty from the previous tenant. The balcony was dirty - cigarette butts and even bird eggs! The kitchen sink drain backed up. Old food was left in the refrigerator. Our request for sheets so that we could use the pullout couch was ignored and we had to go out and buy our own. There is also a lot of noise from the major street that is close by - if you are a light sleeper you will need earplugs.

The customer service was not good. Emails/texts went unanswered, no one provided any information about the unit or local area when we arrived. When we complained about the ants - no one contacted us, just a can of ant spray appeared on the counter the next day. I am surprised about the many excellent reviews - this was just not our experience. If changes are made it could be a decent place to stay - but make sure you ask if the problems have been addressed before your rent.

Owner's Response: Dear Victoria The apartment is on the 8th floor plus building is about 250 metres away from the road, one 3 story building in-between. All the guests agree the apartments is very quiet and you are the one complain about the noise. You booked to stay 4 of you, We have made one large double bed and 2 singles for 4 of you. You came with 6 of you, demanded extra bedding. We had store the extra linens in the cupboard. Our price is for 4 to stay, we didn't charge for 2 extra person. One small double room at Joyce Hostel right next to us, has no view to Thames river costs same as our daily rate you paid. For all our guests, we send a guide book include all information, direction etc. It is send out as attachment. I am so sorry that you didn't open the guide for whatever reason. I apology for the ants plus a bit bread cram on the toaster. We did deal with the problem asap after you reported. It is surely not easy to keep a prefect house. Outdoor is hard to keep it clear all the time, it doesn't take long to be dusty, as it is outdoor. We didn't know where Bird eggs come from, but we love to keep them there, not to disturb the bird. At the end, I suggest you to book to a hostel room for your next trip. Leave the peace to apartment owners.

The historic core of Westminster is the former Thorney Island on which Westminster Abbey was built. The Abbey became the traditional venue of the coronation of the kings and queens of England.
