Great location and very quiet

  • 4 of 5

Apartment is in the basement of an old row house, so if you expect things to be perfect, you will be disappointed. Everything does work, the landlord is helpful and friendly. The bedroom is very dark (I never needed to close the blinds at night and what light that does come in didn't wake me) The main room gets sufficient light. The shower is tricky. Put the head towards the wall while you adjust the temperature as the cold adjusts with minute differences- either scalding hot or cold!

Perfect spot to stay in London!

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely well maintained flat with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The location is brilliant, so close to Gloucester Rd. tube, stores and restaurants. The owner Jeannie is very helpful if you have any questions or concerns. I can't recommend this place highly enough. My husband and I would return in a heartbeat.

Best Location in London + Comfort galore

  • 5 of 5

We've just had a fabulous week in London even though it was November! Jeannie and John (the owners) have set up everything you will need to enjoy your stay and have also provided lots of little thoughtful touches. It was cold outside but the flat was cosy and comfy and the showers were hot and reliable. We could access all the famous London visitor sights via the tube, only 150m from the doorstop. Gloucester Road Station is on 3 different lines and travel was so simple and quick. Buy an Oyster Card and its so easy. We enjoyed Hyde Park, Victoria and Albert Museum and also the Natural History Museum all within walking distance to the flat. There are loads of great cafes, pubs and restaurants nearby but we also enjoyed looking after ourselves in the flat purchasing food from the local supermarket, Waitrose, next to the tube station. This must be the best location in London. Thanks Jeannie and John, we hope to see you again on another trip.

Very conveniently located

  • 4 of 5

The unit is close to the Gloucester tube station, literally 2 minutes walk. From Gloucester station you are basically only a few minutes away from all the major attractions in London. The unit could use fresh paint, but overall it's comfortable for 1-2 people. All the appliances work well, and the kitchen has everything you need. The neighborhood is super safe even late at night and there are some nice pubs and restaurants in walking distance.
