Great flat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Flat was accurately described. The flat was in a nice neighborhood and had easy access to restaurants, markets and pubs and was close to a tube station. Our only request would be to have extra pillows.also, if using Uber, be aware that for some reason the drivers are notified to go to Queens Gate rather than Elvaston Place. Flat is well appointed and comfortable.

Location and great layout!

  • 5 of 5

My niece and I stayed here the last week of July and it was perfect. Gloucester Road has so many great restaurants, pubs and the Tube is so close. We met Roger upon arrival from an overnight flight and he managed to clean the flat faster than usual so we could check in earlier, which was greatly appreciated. The beds were very comfortable, closets amazing and a great shower too. I highly recommend this flat.

Charming flat, caring host

  • 5 of 5

Having spent seemingly a lifetime in the Heathrow Airport over the years, it was nice to finally decide to stay for a week with my family and check out London. Roger's flat was in a great spot for us, close to the science and natural history museums, parks, and the theater district. We found ourselves walking everywhere. The apartment was wonderfully located.

Roger was an excellent host. It was spacious and well appointed, and we were given precise instructions on how to access the flat and how to operate everything. Overall, we would highly recommend this place to friends (or strangers) traveling to London.

Nice apartment in a pretty neighborhood--where we received good, accommodating service from Roger

  • 5 of 5

It's a garden unit that certainly lives up to its description and price. Very convenient that the beds in the second bedroom can be separated into twins--worked fine for two teenagers. It's nicely appointed and quite clean when we arrived.

Located on a pretty, residential street, it's an easy walk both to Hyde Park and the Gloucester Street tube. You need to use that to hit all the tourist spots, but really not a problem. A grocery store, coffee shops, good Indian food, and other amenities are either in the station or on the way--quite convenient overall.

Roger was quite responsive and the thick towels, flowers and fresh fruit were a nice touch. There is a bit of renovation going on in the external entranceway, but it doesn't impact your stay.

Overall well worth it, and enabled a nice stay in London!

The flat was a perfect location for our stay

  • 4 of 5

Roger, the owner, was very nice and helpful throughout the process. We came out for a long holiday weekend and were please with the unit. It was clean and comfortable. Some pictures may seem a bit misleading as they appear to have a rooftop lanai but it's really a ground floor with a small courtyard and glass roof dining area. Overall, we enjoyed it and would stay there again. Out of 8 trips to London, this was definitely the best. Unseasonably warm and sunny are not usually terms used for London but that coupled with nice neighbors and convenience to the tube, pubs, coffee shops, Hyde Park made the trip great. Even walked to Westminster and a terrific Clapton concert at Royal Albert Hall. Thanks Roger for the use of your flat, we'll reach out next time we are London bound.
