Great apartment close to center London
The apartment was as advertised, and the owner graciously accommodated our request to check in a little earlier.
The owner is currently abroad, so I talked to his representative in the UK. The apartment is less than 5 min walk from the tube, 10 mins to Paddington, 20-30 mins to Central London. Bus #16 takes you directly to Buckingham palace in 25 minutes!
The neighborhood is residential with Middle Eastern flavor, but it was quiet and safe, even at night. There are no restaurants and shops in the immediate vicinity, but there are a few within 10 minutes walk.
Overall, very good experience, would stay there again if given a chance.
Great location, budget friendly, but lacking on small touches
The flat was basically as described and as pictured, and it was entirely adequate for our basic needs. We appreciated its proximity to the Underground. Overall, this was what you might call an "economy" lodging, though. Check-in was strange, and communication was spotty. We ended up sitting outside the building for 45 minutes (with small children, after a flight and long train ride). The flat was missing those small touches that make one feel welcome. There was no coffee, we had to buy toilet paper, the furnishings and decor were a bit drab--things like that. We don't regret staying there, because it was a good value overall, but with some easy improvements this property could be far better.
Ex council flat
The flat served its purpose but so much construction going on with constant noise factor and will be ongoing for quite some time in the three tower buildings. We had water turnoffs on two occasions , once for 48 hours . Not good. The place is old . The beds are not great. Kitchen and living areas are quite good , shower needs some work. On the plus side , very close to station and good pub opposite.
Met our expectations
We enjoyed our stay and even the unusually hot weather for London. Note apt. had no AC but fans were helpful. Beautiful view from the 14th floor, great access to the Underground, Metro subway. Kitchen was modern and met our cooking needs.
Quiet multiethnic area with small markets with selection of unusual foods.
A few upgrades in furnishing would be helpful.
Everything said, we would recommend this unit.
Really handy and good value
Great place to use as a base for exploring London. Really handy to Tube station and great little cafe / bar on corner. In a tall old style tower block but nice surrounding area. Fairly basic but good value. Few little things like loose taps and old rough sofa but all in all great for us.
Excellent! Home away from home.
This property was home away from home. Everything you needed. Great location. Anthony was very helpful and easy to communicate with. Nothing was to much trouble. Hope to stay here again soon.
