A great flat in a great location
Having never rented an apartment in London before (as well as renting something I won't get the chance to physically inspect), I had to rely heavily on listings that were well reviewed and had a lot of positive feedback. While there were many that fell under that category, this unit met all of our requirements best.
I'll just mention the things I feel mattered the most to us:
Beds - Didn't use the single, but there is a queen (or full?) in the bedroom which was nice and firm. The sofa bed was also surprisingly comfortable since it had wooden slats for support compared to the spring/canvas variety.
Kitchen - Was fully equipped and came with a clothes washer and dryer (made me realize I should have packed less). Cupboards was fully stocked when it came to pots, pans, utensils, plates, etc.
Bathroom - Bathroom was of adequate size. It was nice and clean and had a towel warmer which was pretty neat. There were enough towels for us to use (there were 3 of us)
Temp - Weather was in the 40s - low 50s (Fahrenheit) so it was definitely comfortable with just the window open. I didn't even bother turning on the fan.
Convenience - It was right next to the Lambeth North station! When you arrive at the station totally beat from sightseeing, its a great thought that once you exit the station, your bed is only a few steps away instead of a 1 mile hike or a bus ride away.
Its a 10 min walk to the London Eye, and just a couple mins more to Parliament, Big Ben, etc.
There are also lots of places nearby for groceries, baked goods, coffee, etc.
All in all, we found it to be a great apartment. Jamie was the most responsive of all the owners we reached out to and also the most professional. We'll definitely rent this place again the next time we're in town.
