Great first experience
Review Submitted: 14 January 2013

My husband and I were taking our first trip back to London since our move back home to the US. We were eager to find better accommodations than the standard hotel or traveler hostel due to the length of our trip and our familiarity with the city. At the same time, since we were very familiar with the City - as we had lived in London for 5 years - we wanted a comfortable experience, not the typical tourist trap or expensive, run of the mill hotel chains.
I did a lot of research – visited many websites and considered many of our favorite locations before coming across this apartment. It is one my favorite locations in London. The location is quite central to major attractions, close to several transport options and has several shops/restaurants just around the corner. I contacted Babs who responded promptly, indicated availability and explained the process for booking. Babs was professional, polite and responsive.This was the first time we rented a private apartment and we were a bit anxious as to what to expect – however, Babs made everything easy. He offers his guests a wealth of helpful information – about the apartment itself and about general tourism in London, restaurant recommendations, travel tips, the works. When we arrived at the apartment, everything was just as Babs had described.
The apartment itself was ideal. It was great to have a full kitchen at our disposal – we were able to walk to the local supermarkets and purchase food and drink to prepare ourselves according to our time table. My husband and I were truly happy with our choice here. Overall, I give Babs and his apartment the highest marks. We absolutely plan to stay at this apartment again when we return. The biggest problem we have is that we've been spoiled now and recommend this apartment without hesitation.
