Convenient location to everything. We love the rooftop patio

  • 4 of 5

We had another just lovely time. The stairwell up to the fourth floor is becoming a struggle for us. The apartment is well equipped with all the amenities.

66 steps up that are NOT mentioned in description!

  • 3 of 5

Would not pick SOHO area again. Too noisy and crowded. Sheets and towels definitely not luxurious. Space adequate and clean. Very nice little kitchen but we didn't use it.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you didn’t like the Soho area as it was too noisy and crowded for you. It is in the centre of London and is well known as being the liveliest area. For many people it is the reason that they do choose the area. As mentioned on our many great reviews, Soho is lively in the street but it is quiet in the apartment. In the description it says “It is on the top (4th) floor with no lift”. I am surprised that you then didn’t realize that this would mean that it would have lots of steps. I am disappointed that you gave the impression (in capital letters) that we left out information. Also many of the other past guests mention in their reviews that the area is lively and that there are many steps. They still give us 5 star reviews and in a joking way they often say the stairs help them deserve the cakes that they ate in the many excellent bakeries in the street. I would recommend that people read as many reviews as possible before booking any holiday rental. At the time of writing, we have had 70 four or five star reviews and TWO lower reviews – including yours. It’s a shame that the area wasn’t to your taste but it a bit unfair to mark us down for that. I am pleased that you liked the kitchen

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again for another great stay. The apartment is perfectly placed to explore Central London, and the terrace is a real bonus on fine days. We'll be back - if we can get in as it's so popular! Thanks again.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The absolute best location! Walkable to almost everything in London. The patio was also a huge blessing when it got hot at night. Will definitely try and book this place again next time we're in London.

A well equipped flat in a fantastic location. Beware: it's 64 twisty steps up.

  • 4 of 5

If you like eating out and are fit enough to get your case up and down the stairs without having a heart attack this is a great location. The flat is not very elegantly furnished - expect synthetic furnishing fabrics and flooring - but it's a comfortable base with good washing machine, dryer, tvs, adequate food storage and basic utensils. The greeters were there when we arrived as planned, and were helpful. In all, we had an excellent experience and would recommend the property to our able-bodied friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes, it is a long way up but that’s the only way you can have such a big terrace. Must people find that it is worth it. The flooring is real walnut but with a glazed varnish. Regarding the furnishings, it was interior designed and all furnishing is shown in the photos. However, we understand that not everybody’s taste is the same. I am glad that you had an excellent experience and would recommend the property to your able-bodied friends
