My family stayed in London for just over a week in early August. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures and as described by Debbie. The bedrooms were well suited to our family of 4 and we appreciated the convenience of having both a dishwasher and a washer and dryer for laundry.
The location couldn't be better! A very short walk for groceries at the nearby Tesco and less than 10 minutes walk to Kings Cross and St. Pancras stations. Be aware that there are a lot of stairs to get to the flat on the fourth floor. This was only a problem for us when arriving with our luggage, but anyone with knee or mobility issues would probably prefer a lower floor. The wifi was not consistent, but seemed to work best in the master bedroom.
Overall, we loved the flat and would definitely book with Debbie again if we come back to London!
As a big family group, we booked 3 of those apartments in the same building. The oldest ones (85+) were staying on the ground floor. Everybody enjoyed the place, the decoration, the cleanliness, the welcome. We found all what we needed for. The smallest apartment we had on the 4th floor (36-4) is a jewel: modern, bright, colorful, with a bit of view... The 36-1 made the joy of the elderly with the back room having a bright patio and the front room its own shower. The 34 apartment has the largest kitchen/living room and we were able to host a large group of people for the pre-wedding celebration. Debbie's husband welcomed part of the group and did a great job introducing the place to my husband. Debbie was on the watch to make sure everything we needed was there. The 3 apartments are perfectly well maintained, well decorated, well equipped. The location is fantastic. Shops and restaurants are just a short walk away and the entire city is easily accessible as King's Cross St Pancras is at 10 minutes walk. We felt home from beginning to end. We highly recommend this place. Thank you Debbie!
Our family had a lovely time in the third floor 2 BR flat. It was nice to have a comfortable flat after a long day touring London. Debby provided many helpful hints prior to our arrival and answered our questions promptly. A text message with the access information was waiting for us after we landed. The listing and pictures accurately described the property. Location was great - not far from King's Cross station.
The property was clean and the dishes and pans were clean as well. All of the appliances were in working order. Plenty of pillows and linens for the sofa bed. My son was comfortable on the sofa bed - I think he appreciated the door on the living area to give him some privacy.
Stairs are narrow, and it is a bit of climb after a long day of touring, but flat was quiet and we really didn't hear street noise. A couple of minor quibbles - Wifi signal could be weak at times, but we never lost the signal completely. Would have appreciated an extra towel or two.
Overall we were very pleased with our choice and would definitely consider renting one of Debbie's flat next time we are in London.
We lived in apartment nr. 4. IT was just repaired. The new sofas in livingroom was very comfortable for sleeping.
We had everything we needed. Apartment was small but there's plenty of room for all of us.
The location is good, few minutes walk to tube station.
We had a perfect time in central London and we will back . Thank You Debbie !
Very nice maisonette with 2 good double beds. Lovely bathroom and well equipped kitchen. Sofa bed was ok but glad we ended up with just one person sleeping in it.
It was a little noisy with the underground trains but that was why we initially booked the top flat. Flat felt secure and it was in a really good position.
Central location not a well equipped kitchen as advertised. Property was not to a good standard . Carpet needs cleaning dishwasher had left over corn in base. Dryer lint not cleaned out Cracked tiles in bathroom faulty light over vanity.Manager did supply disposable oven trays on request . I would DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMEND. Local shops and restaurants were in a good location
