Great location and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We were in 36 flat 4 - top floor. This is a great location!!! Great Local pub across the street! We had two teens one toddler and two adults. It's a hike to the top floor with bags!!! Place was very nice and clean. Tv which the kids enjoyed late in the evening and wifi. No AC which is fairly typical ... It's a quiet neighborhood so it was okay to leave the windows open in the summer for air at night. Small dish washer and laundry was nice to have. Place could use some updated pots and pans however that's prob true of most VRBO's. We ate out for dinner so it wasn't an issue for us. There is a great pizza place around the corner and several near by stores. We loved being so close to a train hub! Really loved the place and hope to be back some day!

Central, quiet and cosy. Perfect for a family of 6!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay with a family of 2 + 4 teenager kids. Cosy and warm space, in a central traditional London building.

It’s really close to the supermarket and the king’s cross subway, in a very quiet street. Full equipped to cook in house, and everything works well. The living room and bedrooms are comfortable, with all we needed. Two small, but functional bathrooms. Everything worked very well, the instructions, the support, we felt really welcomed and relax.

It’s an excellent value for money and a very nice place to stay. I'll repeat for sure, if I have the chance.

Great location and property. Family of 6 from the states would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Debbie for your assistance in accessing the property.

Location near trains was wonderful. We used futon and 2 bedrooms for our family of 6 and the 2 baths were especially helpful.

A bit tight in terms of places to spread out but the reasonable price made it a great choice. Much better than a hotel would have been !!

We would definitely recommend and if we return to London again we would be sure to book with Debbie!!

Nice flat, fit our needs, wished we were closer

  • 4 of 5

The communication with management was very responsive. Overall, we were pleased with the rental but would choose elsewhere next trip. The inside accommodations were as described and comfortable. The door to street was not always shut by residents which left the potential for uninvited guests. Admittedly, this issue exists in most city residencies. There were basic supplies provided. Check-in was convenient with codes bring emailed to us. I was surprised that there were no 'personal' touches like a few reading books, city guides, adapters, etc. We almost exclusively rent flats when travelling. My personal preference are those managed by the owner for the personal interactions and touches. The management company was very flexible with leaving our luggage during cleaning which was very much appreciated! The location to tube station was great as this is a major hub. It is a 5-10 minute walk to Kings Cross depending on how you hit the lights. The major downside was the area. We really struggled to find recent restaurants (anything above 2.5-3 stars on review sites). The local cafe down the street was the only exception. After 1 day, we socialized and ate elsewhere before coming back to flat. The street itself was quiet with only 1 bar close by but sound was not an issue even with windows open.

The rental met our expectations. We felt safe and comfortable. This is a great option for someone targeting to stay close to Kings Cross for tube/train access.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Nicole for taking the time to post a review of your 4 night’s stay last April (2015). I'm pleased you were happy with your stay in 36 (flat 4). The communal front door weight has been adjusted to ensure the door shuts automatically though we've never had any problems with uninvited guests. It's tricky getting a balance as we receive lots of positive comments about the apartments being devoid of clutter (books and personal items). I use to provide London guides, Time Out, adapters etc. but am afraid they always seem to go walk about and guests nowadays seem to use the web from their phones, tablets and laptops to look things up. I'm sorry you struggled to find great dining out options in the area, as there’s oodles of great 4*-5* restaurants on our doorstep. The Rotunda Bar and Restaurant on the canal (3 min walk away) @ Kings Place does lovely food (and also fantastic Mojitos), as does The German Gymnasium, Bar Pepito, The Greek Larder, Granger & Co, Caravan King's Cross, Searcys St Pancras Grand Brasserie on the Upper Concourse @ St Pancras is also great, and there’s an abundance of other great eateries @ St Pancras International Station. Plum + Spilt Milk @ The Great Northern Hotel is also wonderful as is The Gilbert Scott Bar & Restaurant @ St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel. These are lovely local restaurants and they also do a great afternoon tea as does Fortnum & Mason Tea Salon. There’s many gastropubs in King's Cross: Grain Store, The Easton, The Driver, Norfolk Arms…. and the list goes on and on, and if you fancy then 10 minutes up the road there’s Upper Street which has more fantastic options, like Frederick's on Camden Passage. I’m pleased the rental met your expectations and you were comfortable, and we’d be delighted to welcome you to London on another occasion and you could try out some of these wonderful dining options.

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay in this lovely, comfortable, amazingly convenient apartment while visiting London. It's less than a 5 minute walk to King's Cross Station-one of the best stops as it is easy to get anywhere from there! The apartment is clean, lovely, and comfortable. Our daughter had her own room and bathroom, and we all could comfortably lounge around in the mornings and evenings enjoying tea and breakfast (made in the well appointed kitchen) or wine and nibbles to discuss the day's successes. I would stay here again in a New York Minute!
