The pre-arrival communications via email with Nadia were excellent---she always provided rapid and clear responses to questions. She met us at the apartment at the pre-arranged time and quickly explained the various workings of the apartment, electricity, shower/bath, washing machine, TV. There is also a binder in the apartment explaining these various operations. The Wi-Fi was not available due to an ISP problem, but this has now been fixed. The hot water system is on a timer, but hot water from the shower (with a separate heater) is always available. The apartment was clean, but small (by North American standards), consisting of a living room, kitchen and one bedroom (double bed); a mattress was also available for use on the floor in the living room, if needed. The apartment was fine for 2 people, and 3 would work as well, but 4 would be a bit tight. The apartment is about 30 min from central London. However travel is very easy by taking the nearby bus to the tube station (Arnos Grove) and taking the Piccadilly line to central London (or to Heathrow for that matter, about 75 min). Nearby are a grocery store (Tesco express, open till 11 pm), several pubs, and an excellent Indian take away. In general, we would highly recommend the apartment to anyone. It meets all criteria for enjoying a wonderful stay in London.
