Nice apartment but there were issues

  • 3 of 5

There were many great features with this apartment, unfortunately there were also a few issues that could not be ignored.

Lets start with the positives. The location of this apartment is wonderful with the metro a block away, a supermarket in the same building and everything else within easy walking distance.

The layout of the apartment is really nice with the bedroom and the other sleeping area in the living room being separated by the entry and the bathroom. The windows in the living room were huge and we had a great view onto the buildings across the street. Since it was just before Christmas the buildings were lit up with lights and it was quite beautiful.

Our issues with this apartment had to do with the housekeeping. When we arrived we were told that the door on the fridge was broken and it would be fixed in a couple of days. We could still use it but it was a real pain to open. It was not fixed while we were there.

Another issue for us was the cleanliness of the unit. Someone needs to put some time into a bit of scrubbing in the bathroom and changing of the shower curtain. I know that these buildings are not new but it would just take a bit of effort to clean it up.

The last issue was the internet. It did not work when we got there and it took a day for them to get it working. A small issue but worth mentioning.

Any dealings we had with the property management company were very professional and they responded quickly. We were also able to get into the unit a couple of hours before the regular check in time and we really appreciated the early check in.

Would we stay here again? I think we would but only if we were sure that the issues mentioned were looked at.

Super apartment

  • 5 of 5

This super apartment was near enough to railway station and underground to make it easy to get to, and around, central London. It was situated on a quieter road (we had the windows open all night because of the warm weather and only the dustbin men woke us) and the supermarket underneath was very handy! It was close to Tottenham Court Rd and Oxford St and walkable to several theatres. Our two teenagers slept very well on the sofa bed and there were plenty of spare duvets and towels.

The only downsides were a lack of a sink plug in the bathroom and another couple of tea towels, but I'm sure they would have been provided, had we asked.

We stayed for 6 nights and would use the apartment again, if we revisited London.

Beautiful place in great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located in a very good neighborhood, only 2 blocks from the Goodge Underground station. We found the place to be very clean and exactly as it was described. We were in communication with the owner and her manager met us at the property to give us a run through of the security and apartment features. We found the bed to be a little uncomfortable but the rest of the apartment was good as new. The owner has placed a nice binder in the apartment which lists good restaurants close by. I highly recommend this place for someone wanting to stay in the Bloomsbury area of London.

WONDERFUL location and flat was spotless.

  • 5 of 5

Flat was perfect. Location perfect. Check in and out were a breeze. 17 year old daughter slept on foldout couch and never complained. Convenience store right next door had everything we needed for breakfast. Tube stop very close.
