The apartment in London was clean and comfortable. It had a good location that was a reasonable walk to the subway, and therefore good access to everything in the city. The only real negative was checking in because we had to find a different location first to get the keys, and then go to the apartment. However, once that was done, there were no problems.
Would stay there again.
One final thought, the place could use some nice pictures on the wall to give it a more homey feeling.
Many thanks for the feedback. In the last few months, most of our clients required check-in after standard check-in time and we switched to self check-ins so all our guests can arrive anytime after 6 PM. The key shop is open 24/7. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we hope that you will come again. All the best, Tijana
Nice centrally located flat
My husband, daughter and I enjoyed our stay in this flat. It was only a couple blocks from the nearest metro station, and only a few more to another. The neighborhood was nice, close to St. Paul's Cathedral, we felt very safe walking around at night. I imagine the neighborhood is quiet, but we couldn't tell due to construction on an adjacent building. The flat itself was for the most part sparkling clean. We really appreciated the washer/dryer combo, though we had to look up instructions online. Aside from some minor issues, I was very happy with my stay here.
- Centrally located, close to trains stations
- Generally Clean (no dust, hair, trash)
- Great amenities
- Handicap accessible (small lift to the "first" floor was available for my daughter's wheelchair)
- Mold on ceiling in both showers
- No instructions on check-out process, and could not reach contacts to determine how to check out (ended up just leaving keys and locking door behind us)
- normal electrical plugs are not available in european bathrooms, would be nice to provide a mirror in another part of the flat for hair dryers/curling irons/flat irons
- Construction outside woke us up each morning (expect this is only a temporary issue)
Close to Barbicon station, secure & clean. Only issues were lack of knowledge by apartment staff. Concierge had no knowledge of rental which was concerning at first.
Thank you for the review, Alexandra. We are glad to hear that our apartment was a good fit for your London visit. The porter that works in the building is only there to take care of the building and arrange maintenance. He is not our personal concierge service and that`s why he is not included in communication with our guests. I understand that you maybe saw something similar in hotels but this is a little bit different type of service.
We hope to see you again in the future.
Great location for exploring London
We loved our week in London and the location that this apartment near St. Paul's provided. Our family of 6 was comfortable here and appreciated having a full kitchen for our use. We walked to St. Paul's and were so close to the underground that getting around London was easy. There are some areas of the apartment that are beginning to show some wear, including the bathrooms and sofa, but overall it was fine for what we needed--a convenient place to sleep each night.
Working with Tijana for booking and taxi from Heathrow couldn't have been easier. She was responsive to our many questions and the arrangement of a taxi at our late arrival took another worry from us. Our kids can't wait to visit London again and we will look for this, or other properties that Tijana manages, to stay in because the service was great.
Thank you very much for the wonderful review. You and your family were great guests and we hope to see you again.
Wonderful Stay in London
We were never in London before and didn't have a designated area we wanted to stay in. Well we picked a wonderful place! We could get anywhere we wanted with the tube and buses in walking distance. We were also in a less congested, little more residential area with great local food and fun. Our host was very accommodating, if we had questions she was easy to contact and very helpful. I would recommend this flat for anyone visiting London and would stay there again! Thanks Tijana!
Thank you very much for this wonderful review. I was glad to be your host and I hope you will come again. All the best, Tijana
The unit is average. Been in much nicer, and I have had worse HomeAway experiences.
Communication is ok. Mostly text and email, nobody seems to want to chat on the phone anymore. Reply times could be faster, but they did reply each time.
Location is fine. Some construction going on in the neighborhood that closed a road and made it a bit difficult for taxis or Uber to reach the building, but nothing that owner can control, and I am sure that will be finished in the coming months.
Unit has a few issues going on, but nothing that impacted the stay. Shower drips non-stop, and the tiles in bathroom had been damaged as it appears someone had been exploring for the source of a leak. Again, this is just cosmetic, not something that made unit uninhabitable.
We would probably pick a different place in the future, but the price of the unit was a decent value.
