CONVENIENT LOCATION AT REASONABLE PRICE

  • 4 out of 5
Our family of five (three pre-teen boys) stayed in this apartment for 10 days. It's a very utilitarian apartment, having everything we needed. It's not what we would describe as charming or romantic by any stretch, but it was surprisingly comfortable and quiet at night. It's hard to beat the location. Just a couple minutes walk to either the DLR or train (which we found out too late was the fastest option into downtown London), this was our base for exploring London, and we didn't spend a lot of time hanging out in the apartment. Locally, we enjoyed Goddard's for pies and mash, and Black Vanilla for gelato, and the Observatory and National Maritime museums and park/gardens. The few issues we had were primarily with maintenance (new housekeeper) and our feedback was welcomed to help ensure even better experiences for future renters.

A WEEK IN LONDON

Nice apartment. Very clean and stuff very helpful.Everything as described so i'd definately recomend it to a frien. The only problem was that due to constructions on the DLR during the weekend it took a little longer to get to the city center. Bus replacement did run often, though.

WONDERFUL LOCATION IN LIVELY GREENWICH

  • 4 out of 5
My family enjoyed a lovely 10 days in this apartment for our first visit to London. We had plenty of room, everything worked well, and it was spotless! The twin beds were perfect for our 2 teens (they were extra long), and we fit fine in the other bedroom. It was nice to have a separate living area to relax, and we could have breakfast there every morning. Note that the flat is on the second floor, but I think there was an elevator, if needed.

The bathroom is the only down side: extremely small, and the water pressure is low - so the shower did not work well. Groceries and restaurants were a 5 minute walk away, and local merchants were very friendly. There are restaurants of every type - and mostly inexpensive.

We enjoyed being only 2-3 blocks from the Underground station - we took the DLR to connect to the regular Underground every day - about 30 minutes to the main area, and very easy to negotiate. We also walked 2 blocks to the pier and took commuter and tour boats on the Thames - a lovely alternative on sunny days.

Finally, we enjoyed the Greenwich Park and the museums nearby - don't miss the Observatory and the Maritime Museum - they were as good as any museums in London! The Park was a great way to observe London life on a sunny day.

If you are willing to spend a little time traveling to town each day, or want to visit Greenwich, this apartment is a wonderful choice for a small family. The owners were very helpful and accommodating, and helped us with travel and any needs immediately. We would recommend this rental!

Owner's Response: Please note that the second floor location indicated in this review is best described as first floor for some others, especially those from europe. For clarity it is on the next floor up from the ground floor and has a functional lift if required.

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 4 out of 5
This is a good little flat in a terrific location. The block of flats is separated from the river by only a walkpath and is quiet and secure with keyed entry. Approx 3 mins walk to the DLR station and a range of pubs, restaurants and a M&S Food store. It's a perfect base for exploring Greenwich and London in general.

My partner, my parents and I stayed in November 2009 for one week. Although the listing says it sleeps six, I think that 4 adults would be the limit in the area available as the kitchen and bathroom are quite small.

The flat is on the first floor and there is a lift as well as stairs. There's two bedrooms with comfortable beds and clean, warm bedding. The living area is a good size, and has a dining table, 2 comfy sofa's, flat-screen tv with Sky and broadband internet.
The kitchen, while small, does have everything you could need (although a bit more crockery wouldn't go astray) including cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge. The bathroom is the only questionable area - it's very small, the electrical hot water system has little water pressure and access to the shower by climbing over the deep bath edge may be a problem for some people. However, the flat was clean and tidy, the landlady very friendly and helpful and, all in all, we enjoyed our stay here and would go back.
