Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived Eurostar after our trip of Paris and found this lovely apartment a wonderful choice even the tea and biscuits was a site for tired eyes, many many sites right on our doorstep was amazing. With this in mind we were able to very easily and safely walk most places and the underground station is also next door to the apartment for further afield. We felt like neighbours to the queen and the prime minister.

Our stay exceeded our high expectations. We will return and will recommend the apt to our friends

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at an apt in Europe and we were a bit nervous about doing so. However everything went smoothly. The apartment was very nice and the location was superb. The staff was helpful and responsive to our every need. We could not have asked for a better experience and hopefully will return again to stay at this apt in the near future. The apartment was convenient to everything a tourist could need or ask for; tube, bus lines, wide variety of eating choices all within easy walking. Plus have St James so close for a morning stroll could not be beat. Loved our stay!

Great location, clean, plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a wonderful location, walking distance to pubs, restaurants, and numerous tourist sights in the west minster area. Also next to tube stop and bus stops. Don't forget to get an Oyster card. Very clean flat with lots of room. The washer and dryer came in handy. Thoroughly enjoyed our home away from home and we were sad to leave.

Great Location and Great Property

  • 4 of 5

The flat fit all of my needs -- central location to many of tourist attractions, a few steps away from the Tube, and nice quiet building. Besides the bad timing with the hot weather for a couple of days, it was a flawless experience.

Fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in London! The apartment easily accommodated our family of 5 (two adults/3 children) with the pullouts. The location simply couldn't be beat...easy access to so much, just outside the doorsteps! There is a tube stop (and a Starbucks!) literally around the corner, along with a little cafe. And, we were only a few blocks away from Victoria St with more great dining/shopping options. We especially loved that we could easily walk to St. James Park, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and more. The apartment was clean and efficient and the neighborhood quiet at night. Marc answered our questions with good tips and suggestions - communication with him was easy. Our family had a truly fabulous week enjoying London and this apartment provided a great place to rest! Would highly recommend! Thank you for an awesome time!
