Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We (family with kids aged 5 and 7) just atayed for 3 nights in this perfect apartment. It was very comfortable and fully equipped and located perfectly (very near a Circle Line underground station, near a Central Line Station and buses). The kids loved the leisure options after a day full of sight seeing.

The owner Sue send very useful information about the apartment, the neighbourhood (supermarkets, restaurants) and transport to us on our first enquiry. She responded quickly to questions and welcomed us on our day of arrival to hand over the keys. She was very kind and helpful.

We can certainly recommend this apartment!

Comfortable flat centrally located

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to London for a week with my wife and daughters (17 and 19). We really liked the flat. We had all we needed. Was just as expected from photos. It was clean and comfortable. I would note that the loft bed is good for teenagers or kids, but I would not recommend it for adults. There is also a pullout bed in one of the chairs. If you are traveling with children or teens, it works very well. The kitchen had all we needed. There were grocery stores nearby. It was within easy walking distance to Farrington and Chancery Street underground. Buses are also very nearby.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed the Clerkenwell flat in London. David is a great communicator, helpful in making arrangements, and Tracey is very nice and flexible about check-in and check-out. The apartment is secure, spacious, and clean, the furniture comfortable and tasteful in leather and glass, and the kitchen and bath extremely nice and well-equipped--all better than pictured or expected. The view out the full-sized double windows in the living room is entertaining, with lively and friendly neighborhood activity. A very good grocery store is a half-block away, the bus stop is a block, good restaurants and food trucks abound, and people are friendly. The location is perfect, allowing for walking (about 15 minutes to walk to the Thames Blackfriars Bridge), riding the bus (63 is great for north-south and 55 east-west), and using the Tube from a couple of nearby stations, Farringdon or Chancery. Before and after running around town to museums, parks, and plays, the flat was an oasis. We loved it and hope to return.

Accueillant, formidable

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est bien plus spacieux qu'il n'en donne l'air sur les photos, l'accueil est plus que chaleureux, humainement et matériellement ( nécessaire de premier repas, de douche...). La piscine a enchanté les enfants, l'emplacement est idéal (bus, métro près de Saint Pancras, de Picadilly, etc.... pub, boutiques, marché greatest ;-) ).

Bref, à la prochaine occasion nous y retournons !

Vraiment, n'hésitez pas....

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay - thank you. The apartment is in an excellent location - close to Farringdon tube. Near to lots of supermarkets for any supplies (though we ate out every night!). Tracey met us and was lovely and very helpful. The apartment was clean and all linens provided - including pool towels which was a bonus as the kids enjoyed using the pool (which was empty on each occasion we went). The sauna was great and we enjoyed table tennis too.

The apartment has everything you need, including tea, coffee, sugar various condiments like oil and vinegar (which I hate having to buy only to use just a couple of times). Leftover shampoos and shower gels are left in the bathroom and free to use if necessary so you really can travel light! Shower was amazing - really powerful and the beds were super comfy. The property offers excellent value for money for a family of 4. Overall a fantastic trip - would definitely stay again and will recommend to friends.

Londra Gennaio 2016

  • 5 of 5

Appartamento favoloso, accoglienza splendida, che dire da consigliare. Alla portata di tutti, e poi la piscina è la ciliegina sulla torta. Dopo aver camminato tutto il giorno farsi un bagno in un acqua calda al punto giusto non ha prezzo....
