Really nice place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 kids and it was perfect. From the photos, you can’t really sense how spacious and new it is. It was super clean and the location is definitely great, close the Tube all transportations from there. We arrived in the late morning, had around Holborn then met their greeter to get the keys. Any time we had a question, we could shoot them a text message and they were really responsive. Really great stay overall, recommended for families. Thank you!

Not a safe place to stay. Nice flat, but questionable management

  • 1 of 5

Overall impression of the property:

Property was clean but incredibly hot. No windows had been opened prior to our arrival. We were given two fans that worked and one that we had to assemble ourselves.

Overall experience:

We were assured that we would be notified if anyone was entering the property. Our second day there we arrived home to find the door locked. We had not been given a key for this second lock.

When we contacted the owner they assured us no one had entered. They then changed the story to it being a “security check” and finally that someone was checking the air conditioning. Please note there was no air conditioner in the flat. It was clear that they had no idea who had entered the flat and locked us out.

There was no sense of urgency to get us back into the flat. It took well over an hour for someone with a key to arrive. When communicating with the property manger 10-15 minutes would pass without any update. We would only receive short responses when we demanded answers. We had a five year old with us who was tired and scared with no where appropriate to wait. We had to book a hotel room as it was late at night and we had no way of knowing when we would gain access.

After we were let into the flat there was no check in to make sure all was well or to apologize for the inconvenience

We later discovered a debit card that had been left in one of the rooms was missing.

We received poor customer service and communication.

We opted to stay in a hotel for the remainder of the trip. We requested a refund for the time unused at the flat based on our horrible experience. They have refused to provide a refund and only apologized after we checked out and requested a refund. Their apology was comprised of excuses and lies. I would recommend paying the extra money and staying in a hotel so you do not have to question your safety. There is no price on peace of mind.

Owner's Response: Dear Rachael, Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. While we have not received complaints in the past regarding the security issues, we would like to apologize for this unpleasant experience and offer you returning guest discount for your next stay in London. We must assure you we have never been accused of missing personal guest items and we suggest you looking for the payment card that has got missing. We do hope you will give us a second chance to host you in the future as we have many apartments and there is surely one that better suits your needs and expectations. Kind regards, Paul

Very central location and great family flat...

  • 3 of 5

The flat was great and had everything you would ever need. There was tons of space for 4 people and washrooms were good. The location is very good, close to the Holborn and Chancery Lane Tube stations. There are many restaurants near the flat. Only complaint is that there was no hot water in either of the 2 showers... Luke warm at best. Service staff was slow to respond and the late check in charge was prohibitive.

Owner's Response: Dear Fred, thank you very much for taking the time to submit such a sincere and thorough comment. We are happy to know you enjoyed the flat and location. We would like to apologize for the issues you experienced with the hot water. There were instructions included in the guidebook on how to reset the boiler if required (this may happen if too many long showers are taken in a short period of time, a common issue in the city). Regarding the late checkin fee, this only applies to check-ins after 19h00 and is indicated on the listing. Sometimes we have check-ins as late as midnight and it's difficult for us to maintain staff willing to do this. Therefore, it's not uncommon to ask for a fee to compensate our staff for this inconvenience. We hope you will reach out for your next trip to London so we can provide you with a special rate for returning guests. You will, of course, benefit from special rates for our returning guests. Best wishes to you and your family until then.
