Great location. Could use some cleaning

  • 2 of 5

Good: The location was outstanding. It is in a peaceful neighborhood and conveniently located within walking distance of several good restaurants and Tower Bridge. There is a grocery store across the street as well. While it is only two bedrooms with no living room, it was adequate for a small family.

Bad: The apartment needed a good detailed cleaning. We left early because of this reason. Judging by the build up of dirt and film in the shower, it had been a while since it had received any attention. This apartment would be an excellent choice if the cleanliness was up to snuff.

Owner's Response: Hey John, thanks for taking the time to give your feedback and for giving us top marks for the great location with Tower Bridge around the corner and a large supermarket right across the street as well as the spaciousness of our apartment including two large rooms, separate kitchen and shower room. Remarkable hospitality, service and cleanliness are our top priorities so I'm sorry to hear you found the shower wasn’t up to the standard as you’ve come to expect from us. I have addressed your feedback with our housekeeping staff to ensure this won't happen again. We personally make sure the apartment is cleaned thoroughly after each guest and wish you would have mentioned this while you were staying as we could have addressed it there and then. Hope your stay in London was otherwise enjoyable and hope to see you back some day.

Excelent location

We were thrilled with location.

The apartment was clean and comfortable, 2 bedrooms and no living room.

The price was fair and the owner was very professional. Pete (New York)

Great Spot for the Budget Traveler

  • 5 of 5

This spot was perfect for my family's visit to London.

The London Tower, Tower Bridge & Tower Hill tube stop are all in easy walking distance (about 10 minutes).

Conveniences for everyday life were a definite plus in this location, as well. The Waitrose grocery store and full kitchen meant we didn't need to eat in restaurants constantly (especially when the kids were tired.) The apartment also has a new washer, so we were able to wash clothes in the evening and avoid spending a day at a Laundromat.

While furnishings were modest, everything was clean and well in order when we arrived.

Will was a good host and even available to assist us quickly on short notice the one time ran into a bit of jam.

A great value and good time all around!

Sehr gute Lage aber ranzige Wohnung

  • 1 of 5

Die Lage der Unterkunft ist sehr zentral und gleich in der Nähe der Towerbridge- zentraler kann man fast nicht wohnen.

Leider war die Wohnung sehr schmutzig und abgewohnt. Das Bad haben wir erstmal ordentlich geputzt und in der Küche mussten Teller und Gläser augewaschen werden. Wir haben zu viert 3h gebraucht um die Wohnung sauber zu bekommen. Der Balkon war nicht benutzbar- dort lagerten alte Möbel und ein Teppich.

Zur Wohnungsrückgabe kam der Vermieter nicht wie vereinbart- er erschien einfach nicht und Kontaktversuche scheiterten.

Zurück in Deutschland wollte er die Kaution nicht erstatten, weil der Vermieter angeblich nicht wusste wie man diese überweist. Erst nach Drängen über Homeaway kam der Vermieter seiner Pflicht nach.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The unit is located near the Tower of London and very convenient.

The owner was very flexible with our arrival and departure time.

It doesn't have bells and whistles, but everything is clean and working order.

There is no 'living room' per se. But both bedrooms are large and has plenty of lights.
