Quiet house and location with easy city access

5 of 5
Nicely sized home in a good, quiet location. A few minutes walk from two different Tube stations. A few museums nearby (good ones if you are traveling with children and catch a rainy day). Easy to move about London from here. The house is quiet, with plenty of space for 5-6 people. It comes equipped with the basics - towels, bedding, dish soap, etc. Clear and concise communication with the management company.

Perfect location!

5 of 5
This flat was perfect for our month-long stay in London. It's really spacious and comfortable with a large bedroom, ample closet and dresser space, two couches in the living room, dining table for six, and two bathrooms. It's close to two tube stations and several bus lines. There are many good restaurants close by and several museums within easy walking distance. The owners were very responsive when the inevitable couple of things came up. We'd stay here again!
