Okay but many small inconveniences

  • 2 of 5

The location of the apartment was very convenient, and Roberto and Sean were both very kind and easy to work with. Unfortunately, we had a number of problems which lead me to not recommend this flat. Our meeting time to get the keys to the apartment was changed at the last minute, and I believe Sean sent an email after we had already left on our flight from the States. We took a taxi to the apartment and I had to call him before I found out that we could not actually get into the apartment for several hours. We were able to leave our luggage there, but were left to wander London after a red eye while the flat was cleaned. We were told it would only be a few hours, but it was six hours before the cleaner was finished.

Secondly, the WiFi was intermittent. It would work most of the time, but was out for a couple hours each day. Thirdly, the flat directly below us was under construction. We had planned to come back in the middle of each day to put the little ones for a nap, but construction noise made this very unpleasant. The hallway up to the apartment was also in disarray, because of the construction. Of course this is something the managers cannot control, but I feel we should have been informed of this ahead of time.

Regarding the noise, we expect a certain amount of street noise when staying in a popular part of the city, but there were yelling and car alarms even in the middle of the night, and twice there were people smoking crack on the stoop next door.

The flat itself was fine, and was in reasonable shape, but overall was not what we had imagined it to be.

Quirky apartment with a good location on a (sort of) quiet street. Great base for exploring London.

  • 4 of 5

I lived in a flat in Central London for a semester a long time ago and used the Tottenham Court tube station everyday, so choosing this flat was a very comfortable decision for me. One thing you can expect about almost any space in London is that layouts are.....creative! All the years of renovations and repurposing create some very unusual floorplans, and that is true here.

The flat was just large enough for my family of 5, with my youngest sleeping on the couch. It was great to have a real kitchen in the middle of London, and we took advantage of that. The living space is a bit limited, but WAY better than a tiny, expensive hotel room somewhere!

The location is very good, right around the corner from the tube station and a large grocery store. You can walk to the British Museum (free entry!) in 5 minutes or Leicester Square in 15. We walked down to the Strand and Aldgate in 15 mins or so too! Very easy location from which to explore London by foot, bus, or tube.

London flats are not known for double-paned windows, and that was true here. Though the street is quiet, every car that went by ran over a manhole cover and made a loud clunk. I am a light sleeper so that made it a bit rough the first night. Didn't hear it the other nights because I was too tired I guess!

Giving four stars overall with size and condition of flat. Was not quite as nice as appeared in pics but certainly nice enough. There was work going on in the flat below. The stairs were covered in plastic, and one night we had an overwhelming smell of paint. Doubt future tenants will have this problem.

Overall a great value. Much better than renting two hotel rooms in Central London. Just don't expect anything fancy for the price. And I am super fine with that! Hosts were responsive as well.

If only location is an issue

  • 1 of 5

Well the location IS perfect, but.... It was of the utmost importance to us, that there was Wi-Fi, because I needed to get some work done, and my company requires a a Wi-Fi with a code to connect to the VPN, so a public Wi-Fi is not an option.

No one bothered to go to the apartment prior to our arrival, so it was only 11 degrees when we got there, and we have to sleep in clothes the first night. I could have seen through fingers with that, bu when the Sean gives us a number, and says, that if there is anything we just call him, and then when we try to call and text once we realized, that we couldn't connect to the Wi-Fi - no one is answering!! The next day around noon I received a text: Have you been able to connect to the Wi-Fi, and I write No - and then silence. I heard nothing! And please don't answer this review by letting it shine through, that it was probably me, because I have worked all over the world, and it has never been a problem for me before!!

I do expect a least some kind of service, so NO I won't stay here again and NO I can't recommend the place unless all you care about is location.

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as shown in the photographs. All communications were prompt and professional, including when my son left a watch of sentimental value they went round to the property the next day and retrieved it and arranged its return for which we are very grateful.

The best thing about this property is it's location, literally just steps from Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road tube station. You do hear some noise at night but nothing more than would be expected when living so centrally in a city.

The flat was comfortably furnished and perfect for our needs for a one night stay. We were a party of 6 adults. We would recommend this flat to anyone looking to stay in central London and wanting very good value for money.
