Right in the heart of London, this flat was perfect for our foursome (mom with two teens, 73-year-old grandpa) with one double bed in a separate bedroom with door, a pullout couch in the living room, and a convertible twin bed/chair. Nearby shops and a well-appointed kitchen with electric kettle made it convenient to have breakfast, coffee, or tea before setting out (Americans please note that you must flip the switch on the electrical socket to allow electricity to flow--the default is "off"). Despite its proximity to the hustle and bustle of Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and the popular Gordon's Wine Bar, this flat was very quiet at night (located on a dead-end street that backs up to Victoria Park). The flat was immaculate and had sufficient and good-quality linens and towels. Good water pressure and hot water. The lift was temperamental, but worked 90% of the time for us. There is a shelf of London tour books and maps which were helpful references during our stay. A five minute walk to Embankment or Charing Cross tube (which also connects to National Rail). Don't miss an enjoyable meal with excellent service at the White Swan pub just around the corner from Tesco's.
All communications were efficiently responded to and there were no surprises. We arrived early and were allowed to leave our luggage while they cleaned the flat for us and we went out to explore. We will definitely be back.
