Excellent flat

  • 5 of 5

This flat was the perfect base - well appointed, comfortable, with owners who responded quickly to my questions. The flat is very close to the Pimlico Tube stop (under 5 minute walk), with convenient #24 bus nearby (to Trafalgar Square, Parliament Square, etc.) My only suggestions would be the addition of a cutting board in the kitchen and perhaps a more comfortable chair for sitting, but those are minor concerns. Overall this flat was perfect for me (a solo traveler), and I would certainly stay here again.

Wonderful location, great value!

  • 3 of 5

We recently stayed for 6 nights and found this rental to be exactly as advertised. Sara and Amir were wonderful hosts and always promptly replied to any of our enquiries. We enjoyed their thoughtfulness in leaving some breakfast items as well as a few beverages and a welcoming bottle of wine. The bed was very comfortable! The location is convenient for public transportation and just a 10 minute walk to Victoria Station. Direct buses to most of the major attractions. Bus stop, groceries and local restaurants very close by. Laundromat a few steps away as well. Shower was a little too hot when we first arrived but we were able to adjust the water heater temperature easily enough. We rearranged the seating to accommodate our needs. There are fold up wooden chairs under the bed which we used at the little dining table and moved the cube seats under the large window to set our luggage on. This worked well for us. In our opinion this is a suitable space for two people or a couple with one older child who might find sleeping in the loft fun. There is a safe in the closet which we found to be very handy. One area that could be improved on with a quick fix is in the lighting. It is very dimly lit and difficult to read in the evening. There are 5 lamps but all have very small bulbs. Two new bright bedside lamps would solve the issue easily. During the daytime hours the flat is bright and has a nice large window. We would definitely stay here again when back in London and consider this is great value for the rate charged. Thanks Sara and Amir for a wonderful stay!

Great location and as expected.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in this easily accessible apartment. After a long day of travel, we easily found our home base that allowed us to get out quickly and start exploring starting with a walk to Buckingham Palace and Green Park. We appreciated have bread, milk and eggs awaiting our first breakfast and as noted there are a variety of groceries, pubs and restaurants within a short walk, our favorite being Cask. Sara was responsive and the apartment was clean.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Pros: convenient location within walking distance to many landmarks, restaurants and public transportation. Hosts were accommodating and flexible with arrival time. Price was right. Comfortable and clean. Cons: flat was cold as there was no heat other than a plug in electric heater. Hot water in the shower had some challanges.

Owner's Response: Hi - Many thanks for your review and kind words. We have 2 heaters, one is embedded in the wall, and look like a luxurious fireplace. We have marked this, and if it is switched on for 10min, the flat will be hot. Sorry if you missed it. Amir

Clean, great location, ground floor

  • 3 of 5

This tidy little apartment is in a nice quiet, safe neighborhood with very easy access to buses and tube line. Bus 24 goes right up to Parliament square and many tourists sites. We rode the tube from Pimlico to Heathrow with only one change. The owners had many breakfast foods and other things in the refrigerator and we ate it all. I rated 3 stars because it is quite dark and basic in furniture. Do eat at the Spanish restaurant a few doors down and go around the block to the Indian restaurant. I would stay here again but husband would not.

Conveniently located ... CREEPY check out!

  • 2 of 5

This conveniently located studio is great for 1 or 2 adults, or a couple with 2 kids at most. That however would make for a very crowded, "on top of each other" stay. The mezzanine "sleeping area" is about 3 feet (at most) from the ceiling and may be quite claustrophobic for adults. Not to mention having to climb a ladder to get up there. The double bed itself was very comfortable, and while there are no comfortable side chairs, there are at least a couple of folding chairs available under the bed.

It was comfortable enough for a single person so if you're traveling alone (or as a couple), and don't mind using folding chairs for extra seating, I would definitely consider this studio. It's just one stop from all of the hectic traffic around Victoria Square, and has a couple of corner markets, a small grocery store, a bakery/cafe, and several restaurants and pubs all within three blocks or less. The Pimlico area was quite nice actually, and the Underground is less than 3 blocks away.

The only real drawback I had was the fact that the morning of check-out, I had someone knocking on the door 30 minutes BEFORE checkout time telling me I had to hurry up and leave because the cleaning crew had to get the studio cleaned before they reported to work elsewhere. Amir and Sara should really address that issue and make sure it's not a normal occurrence. I travel to London often, and the last thing I want is someone standing outside the window watching me finish packing up and getting ready to vacate the premises. That may not be an issue for you if you plan on checking out early anyway.

As a matter of fact, I will be in London again next year, but given the fact that some strange man was knocking on the door 30 minutes prior to checkout, and then stood outside looking through the window waiting for me to leave gives me pause to stay here again, and is the reason I only give this studio a 2 Star rating. At most a 3 Star rating anyway given the lack of comfortable seating. Perhaps if I hear from Amir and Sara that the pushy checkout issue has been rectified, I will stay here again next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Gregg, Many thanks for your feedback. The flat is indeed suitable for 2 adults and no more. But we offer you the opportunity to come in 3 as the mezzanine area, despite low ceiling, is suitable for sleeping, just as many guests have done. And we are not charging extra for the 3rd person. Apologies for the situation with the cleaners. As we were away that week, we had to get an external management company to handle the check in/check out and they got the time wrong unfortunately. This is not normally the case. Amir
