Amazing location; comfortable

  • 4 of 5

It is a little more dated in "real life" than in the pictures, but it is clean and comfortable. The location is ideal; convenient access to everything we wanted to see on our first visit to London, excellent restaurants within walking distance, as well as a couple grocery stores. The trip would have been perfect except (1) London hit record-high temperatures during our visit but the flat has no air conditioning (not unusual and rarely necessary, but worth noting) and (2) one of the two showers started leaking into the living room the first time we used it. It was unable to be repaired and so we only had one shower throughout our stay.

Great flat for large family & close to tube stations

  • 4 of 5

Great flat for our family of 5. Plenty of room for sleeping. On a quiet street in a great neighborhood close to 2 tube stations. Clean when we got there and check in was fast and easy. Only thing to watch out for is a leak in the master bath and some painting needing to be done in there as well but minor over all. Great stay!

Owner's Response: Dear Sharon, Thank you for your review. We have let City Relay know about the leak and I'm happy to report it has been fixed. We hope you had a lovely time in London!

Great neighborhood. Roomy for four people.

  • 4 of 5

Could have been cleaner. No toilet paper or trash bags. So we had to buy them.

Coffee maker didn’t work. But the rental company tried to make good on it. But since there was only one more day in our stay we told them never mind:

Owner's Response: Dear Joe, Thank you for your review. I will check with the cleaning company as to why you encountered the issues you did to make sure it never happens again. Thanks so much for letting us know. I hope you will be back soon as you rightly point out the apartment and neighborhood are otherwise great!

Excellent Location, Flat and Service

  • 5 of 5

Location:

The flat is located in the center of South Kensington near restaurants, shops and museums. The tube station is a short walk from the flat. Great location as a home base for touring London.

Flat:

The flat was perfect for our family of five. It was clean and spacious. The bedrooms are good sizes, the two and a half bathrooms were perfect for our family and the beds and pull-out sofa were all very comfortable. The flat is two levels and there are some stairs but that was not an issue for us at all. The washer/dryer is a little tricky to figure out but once we did it worked well. The surrounding neighborhood is lively but the flat is located on a very quiet street.

Service:

The flat is managed by City Relay. Upon check-in, we were greeted at the flat and everything was explained to us. We did have a few questions and minor issues during our stay but the City Relay team (Justin and Daniela) was available and responsive to our needs. They helped resolve the issues and provided excellent service.

Overall:

We had a great experience and vacation. I would highly recommend the flat and City Relay.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall great visit. Location is wonderful near museums, restaurants and the tube. The unit is safe and secure. Smaller than looks in pictures but good space and clean. There is no view so that with the grey sky made us feel a bit claustrophobic. Small maintenance issue with the master shower not draining properly, and the washer/dryer spins but didn't actually dry clothes.

Owner's Response: Dear Jonathan, Thank you for your review. We are happy to inform you that the shower situation has been fixed by a plumber sent over by City Relay. Kind regards, Daniela
