Spacious and Convenient - A Good Stay!
Review Submitted: 05 September 2011
Date of Stay: August 2011
We spent three nights at Royal Belgrave House and would gladly recommend it. The apartment was clean and tidy with all the equipment you might need for a short or long stay, e.g., microwave, oven, dishwasher, internet, TV, etc, in good working condition. The apartment was also spacious for the price, and as a family with two teenagers this space was worth it, as were the two bathrooms. Communications the owners was prompt and helpful.
Victoria was a good location. We arrived at the train station and walked to the building easily. The day we checked out we left our cases at Victoria before doing some last minute sightseeing (the Royal Belgrave concierge also offered to watch them for free.) The tube line is easy to find, obviously, although we found it more fun to catch one of many nearby buses.
Reviewers mention the railway tracks outside and maybe the noise used to be worse; with the windows closed we hardly noticed. In summer it get stuffy like that so we used the fans provided. I didn't know about the portable a/c unit; definately ask the owners. There was no noise from other apartments and Hugh St. is also calm, even though it's around the corner from Victoria.
The only negatives I can think of were very minor, to us. The two beds are doubles and our kids didn't want to share! The solution was to put one on the sofabed. We also couldn't find instructions for the appliances so using the oven and the dishwasher was more hassle than we expected.
A good experience and we'd be glad to stay again.
