They are well kept and peaceful, and it's a perfect place to relax and read your Sunday newspaper in the sunshine.

This apartment is in a great location. Super close to everything you need to get you everywhere. Perfect place to come home to (it does feel like home) after exploring the city. Best of all is UNA. She is so helpful and accommodating. From begining to end she is always there to help you. I would recommend her and her apartment to anyone.
My wife and I have just returned from 10 days in the UK, six of which were spent in this delightful flat on St. George's Square, Pimlico. There were three of us as my adult son was traveling with us on his way to enter Oxford. The apartment is a true 2 BR 2 bath unit with a spacious LR and small but very well fitted kitchen, with full size refrigerator, dish washer, expected small appliances (toaster, coffer maker, crockery, etc etc) oven, burners etc. Bathrooms are lovely and modern and recently refitted. As a whole, the apartment is beautifully decorated, with great natural light and a comforting sense of security.
We used the washer and dryer: functioned exactly as it should and was extremely helpful.
The location was what first attracted us to this flat: we know Pimlico and have stayed many times in a ginormous block of flats around the corner known as Dolphin Square. Half a block from the Thames, with a 15 minute walk along the bank to Westminster Abbey, this is right in the heart of central London, but is very green and leafy; and with a tube stop a block and half away, the entire metropolitan area is at your fingertips. This is a VERY good location from which to tour London.
Una, the landlady, is absolutely tops in communication: everything is well planned and executed, and she is very engaged in making sure everything works as agreed. My damage deposit was returned within 36 hours of departing the flat.
The only quibble, and it is slight, is that there is not very much bandwidth capacity. It comes in on copper, and then into wifi, and equates the speed of the old AOL dial ups. Now, this is perfectly adequate for one person at a time to check their email, and do a limited amount of (patient) surfing. If you have anyone else in your party online at the same time, be prepared to wait. But very much on the cyber plus side, the apartment has a wireless printer! This is becoming critical as booking museums, plays, concerts, whatever, online requires that you be able to print the tickets you just booked and paid for. The printer works through bluetooth and does not require you download any drivers. Worked great! and was an unexpected pleasant surprise.
We would certainly book this flat again, and do not hesitate to recommend it to all seeking a very comfortable apartment from which to experience London.
This was our first visit to London. I was looking for something other than a one bedroom one bathroom hotel room. This place was perfect. From my first interaction with Una my experience was just like the other reviews you will read about this property. Una was great to work with from the first inquiry to our last days in London. She recommended a car service for our airport transportation and called them to confirm our pick up and departure. All the financial issue went as advertised. Una refunded our damage deposit before we landed back in the U.S. The apartment itself was very nice and in a safe London neighborhood. To have a comfortable living area and kitchen to fix breakfast and dinner when we wanted to eat in was perfect. There are numerous small grocery stores very close by and then a full size grocery store about a half mile away. The Oyster Cards for the Underground/subway made travel easy. The Pimlico station was about a five minute walk and got us everywhere we wanted to go. While in London Una was in contact and helpful in every way. I would definitely recommend working with Una and recommend this property. It made our trip extremely enjoyable. I can't imagine having stayed 8 nights in a one bedroom one bathroom hotel room. If we go back to London we would definitely stay here again.
We just got back from a week in Europe and spent four days at this wonderful apartment in London, Saturday-Wednesday, and the rest of the time in Paris. It is always an extremely pleasant and satisfying experience when things work out exactly as planned. My wife and I flew to London to meet my adult son, who had just completed his study abroad semester in London. We had our adult daughter join us from New York. My son and daughter shared the room with the two twin beds. We decided to use this apartment as our home base as we moved him out school and sightsee in London. The apartment was accurately described, clean, comfortable and everything worked. Wi-Fi was fast and reliable, washer and dryer worked well. The apartment is located 2 blocks from the Pimlico underground station and from there all of London was at our doorstep. We even took the tube from Heathrow to Pimlico when we arrived. Una, the apartment owner, provided detailed instructions on home operation, all transactions were completed with PayPal, and our security deposit was returned in full (while we were in Paris, even before we even got home). It was a very pleasant experience. A few notes. The apartment is a ground floor apartment and was light and airy, but some steps down to the apartment are required. Not an issue for us. Also, PayPal fees do add up if you are converting from a foreign currency (for me US dollars to pounds). There is no way around this, and in the end I preferred the safety of PayPal to other methods. Una provided four Oyster cards (used for all public transportation) which were left with varying amounts of value from the last visitors (anywhere between 3 and 12 pounds). My son had his own unlimited ride card from school, but we used three of the cards, topping them off as needed and leaving them with approximately the same amounts as we found them. We only used a taxi once, and that was at the end of our stay to take all our luggage to the train station (my son was moving home). I would highly recommend this apartment, and you will find the owner, Una, to be honest, attentive and engaged in the success of your vacation.
Four of us met in London for a week. We loved Una's apartment. Very modern and efficient with comfortable bedrooms and a nice living room to gather in. The bathrooms are quite small but, very top of the line with excellent hot water. The owner was super helpful and always available to answer questions. We will return!
My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teen boys) spent 13 nights in this lovely, we'll-appointed apartment. The apartment was sparkling clean, private and quiet. Bedrooms and sitting areas were nicely furnished and comfortable. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The full sized washing machine and dryer were a tremendous convenience. This property is easy walking distance to the Pimlico tube station so it was easy to get to local London attractions. The owner could not have been nicer or more helpful. She consistently offered her assistance and followed-up with every request we made. She provided insight and information prior to our trip and during our stay. In addition, she provides a variety of helpful extras including Oyster cards for use during your stay and free WiFi. We would reserve this property again without hesitation and recommend it highly.
The apartment is situated in beautiful St. George's Square in Central London, in the heart of the Pimlico Grid. You are 150 metres from the River Thames, 5 mins to Pimlico Tube Station (Victoria Line) and 1 stop to Victoria Station and the Gatwick Express. There are lots of good restaurants nearby, a comprehensive file of restaurants and places to visit will be left for you in the apartment. A car is not necessary. London's West End shopping, theatres and parks, are all close by; the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Tower of London, Canary Wharf, Westminster Abbey, Kew Gardens. You can use the Thames River Boat service to take you to any of these places or alternatively use the London Underground or buses. London black cabs pass frequently, and private cabs are available to hire.
