Guestbook comments from the manager

We booked the apt for a week, 5 business and 2 sightseeing days. It's very very central London located so we only used the underground a couple of times (which was situated just around the corner), as we discovered it easier to walk to different places. In terms of sightseeing, we spent a lot of time soaking up the atmosphere and walking around the many shops in Covent Garden. We also saw an amazing production of La boheme at the Royal Opera House. This apt is in the heart of theatre land and close to the wonderful British Museum which we both had not visited since childhood and will return to on our next visit. The apt was well furnished, comfortable and quiet, with a good kitchen not that it was needed much as there are many fabulous restaurants out and about which we took full advantage of. Overall a great base if you require a central location.

have stayed here six times, terrific every time

  • 5 of 5

So I'm a regular, in that I have to go to London frequently for 2-3 days, and sometimes longer. I tried an Airbnb apartment the first time, then a hotel, and finally this Red Lion apartment. I was amazed at how much bigger and better it was than the Airbnb apartment, and how it cost about the same (and less than the hotel.) It really is just as it looks in the photos -- very clean, very modern, with plenty of light and a nice view on the road. Also, Roberto is extremely accommodating, allowing last minute changes, and regularly dropping the keys off at my place of business (except one time when I arrived late, and he waited for me at the apartment.) Unlike another reviewer, I have never had a problem with noise, except early one morning when the city picked up the bottles outside the bedroom window. I rarely see the neighbors, and never had a problem with any of them. So my experience has been first-rate, and I would recommend it to anyone. My only quibble (if only so you believe everything else) is that it would be good if they left a bar of soap or maybe even a bottle of shampoo in the medicine cabinet. The apartment is clean, clean, clean, so even a can of soda is removed (rather than left for the next guest.) Others might prefer it that way, but I'd be happier not having to bring my own soap. Still, this is my only "complaint." The apartment is great value for money and -- almost forgot -- the location can't be beat.

Disappointing!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a week. The apartment was nothing like the pictures display. The unit smelled like mildew. Everything in the unit was at the brink of failure or dire need of replacement. The apartment was not very clean. The washer/dryer did not function when we arrived. It took several requests to the manager to repair the washing machine. He assured us that it was repaired on the day before our departure. In reality the machine remained non functional despite of the manager's assurance that it was repaired. We ended up going to the laundromat after running the London marathon.

The shower head sprayed water everywhere except inside the shower stall.

The neighborhood was extremely noisy day and night. Don't expect any sleep if you stay there.

The most important thing: One of the upstairs apartments in the complex was broken into and robbed. The trash from the various units accumulated in a garbage room for several days, fouling the air and making the area smell like a typical garbage dump.

Insanely over priced given the multiple negatives we experienced.

The only good thing was that the unit was located near the tube station and the grocery store.

Central apartment

  • 3 of 5

Central apartment, with a good location for visiting London for a few days. Upon arrival the apartment was not cleaned properly, there were hair and crumbs all over the living room and hallway. However, an assistant from the staff cleaned the apartment after we pointed out the lack of cleaning during handover. Another thing; we were told at arrival that security was important, that we locked doors etc. However, at our suprise the windows in the apartment is not possible to lock, which we find a bit irresponsible. Anyway, the staff provided requested highchair and cot for our baby, the apartment is perfect for a small family spending a few days in London.

Good apartment, centrally located

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is centrally located, at walking distance from several facilites (supermarket, subway, pubs,etc).

We were 10 nights with 2 children and enjoyed the place and location, quite during the night.

Reccomendable for short trips.
