Location was perfect and convient. Home was perfect for our family and would recommend to anyone traveling to London. Debbie left a lot of great info that helped out too.
This is a pleasant flat in a truly ideal location for exploring all of London and beyond. Critical information that potential renters should know is that the bedrooms and bathrooms are down a steep flight of stairs from the living areas. This was not a problem for our family but it's good to know in advance. The flat is cozy - there is no extraneous space - but it was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the price is fantastic for this expensive city. We are renting a different flat in the same building later in this trip and Debbie has been easy to communicate for both. We would stay here again.
We really enjoyed staying in Flat 1. Easy access to busses, underground and trains. Large and spacious bedrooms. It was really quiet most of the week (a bit noisy on Saturday). Our daughters loved the outside balcony and wished to stay in the apartment instead of going out for dinner. Great communication with Debbie. Greatly recommended. Thank you
Myself and my 4 kids ranging in age from 10 to 32 stayed in this 2 bed apartment from 29th to 31st March 2016. I found the booking process quite easy - helped very much by the owner Debbie who helped us through the process and provided a lot of very useful information about the apartment itself but also the area it's in and more generally about London - very helpful. The apartment was recently refurbished to a high standard and everything was as advertised - clean and well equipped. The apartment and the location helped make our stay a very enjoyable one - we'll definitely be back. I'd also like to specifically thank Debbie for her personal touch - other people could learn from her - it made a difference. Thanks - Donal
We were two sisters and one grandson and this place suited us well, though the sofa beds were not the most ideal additional bed for a tall fourteen year old boy. Debbie was most helpful and allowed us to leave our luggage early on our first day and until late on our final day, which enabled us to make the most of our three day stay without dragging suitcases around with us (or paying a fortune for left luggage at the station). The apartment is clean, spacious and well set up with everything that you could possibly need. We were only here for two nights, but could easily have stayed longer as it has everything you need for a prolonged stay. Nice comfy beds and reasonably quiet for London. I would highly recommend this in preference to a hotel.
We had a wonderful time in the apartment so please receive our thanks and gratitude. The kids loved it as well as us and it was our first and not last experience with renting a flat instead of hotel. Super clean and well centered.
