Modern, great views, AC was inefficient and awkward, transitional area.

  • 3 of 5

A true bachelor pad. Studio apt was clean, sleek and had plenty of space. Furnishings were modern but not necessarily comfy-except the bed was very comfortable. Bare minimum kitchen tools. It's advertised as having air conditioning, which was the primary reason for renting it. However, the AC is actually a portable rolling unit with a hose that had to be placed at the base of the window to let out the hot exhaust from the unit. This meant that the constant traffic noise, especially ambulance noise came through even on the 30th floor. You had to be directly in the airflow path to really feel the cool air. We had to rearrange the furniture so as to not block the flow of air to the bed. The bathroom while well appointed was always warm due to lack of airflow. The entire apartment never felt completely comfortable temperature wise. The hallways and elevator were like a steambath and quite unpleasant. The Elephant and Castle area is a multi ethnic area and appears to be undergoing a major housing transition. The apt had easy access to both bus and tube stations, however the area within 250 steps of the apt building was dirty and had a lot of garbage on the sidewalks. We never felt unsafe, but were constantly aware of our surroundings. I would say the area is not for everyone. The plus side is that there were many interesting ethnic restaurants, and I highly recommend checking out the Artworks Elephant across the street . It's an open air market made from shipping containers, housing great little restaurants and shops. The downside, as in everything outdoors in London, the SMOKING.

Great view, great stay

  • 5 of 5

Newer modern apartment with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. It had a 55" TV, heated towel racks, nice sized refrigerator, dishwasher, washer/dryer, iron, nice sized bathroom, fully stocked kitchen with an oven. Close to the Elephant & Castle Underground station. Fantastic view. We had been travelling throughout France for the previous five weeks and saved the best stay for our last stay. Owner even brought up a portable air conditioner when the weather turned unseasonably warm. The concierge helped us with with questions & even referred a taxi company to take us to Victoria Station on our last day. There were even some leftover dry goods for us to use. I really liked the security aspect of the building. I highly recommend this apartment if it fits within your time frame. Important note (building has a fire sprinkler system). This is of note due to the recent apartment fire which took place on our last day in another part of London.

Central location, with fantastic views of London

  • 4 of 5

The studio had adequate room for two adults. We were only able to find basic cable on the Smart TV. The staff at the front desk was very helpful in assisting us. All of the elevators were not functioning when we were visiting, making the wait times much longer. The free Wi-Fi functioned well the entire stay throughout the studio. Shopping for essentials was just across the road.

Communication from the owner was minimal. I do wish there had been more than two small towels for two adults for four days, this was an inconvenience.

Despite this I would recommend the studio for a short stay in London as the location did compensate for the shortfalls.

perfect view, oppressively hot inside the appt.

  • 3 of 5

The flat itself was great, the view perfect, the furniture very nice. Bed nice and firm. But unfortunately it was extremly hot in the appartment, it felt like 35°C and the fan was not working. There was no info whether air condition is available and how it would work. Enver did not answer our cry-for-help eMails on Friday or Saturday. We were not able to call because our phone doesn't work outside Germany.

Zentrale Lage, super Verkehrsanbindung, unproblematischer Kontkat. Fantastischer Ausblick auf London Eye und das nächtliche Lichtermeer der Innenstadt. Alles perfekt. Danke für den schönen Aufenthalt.
