Therefore, we have been looking for a place to stay that combined good location, space, nice modern decoration and, of course, a fair price. We were very glad we found it all in this property. Super well located in a quiet but very well serviced area close to the tube and many attractions, we got a spacious apartment that not only accommodated us in its comfortable bedroom but also allowed us to comfortably host friends for dinner and drinks a couple of times. To prove our satisfaction, we have already been here twice and anticipate we will be back soon. Finally, Matt is a very good host, willing to be as helpful and accommodating as possible and giving us the confidence that feedback is welcome and truly taken into account. Highly recommended!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

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.
