Well where do I start? I booked three nights for my parents who were visiting London. I received a bizarre Paypal request two days before arrival and contacted the company straight away to inform them that I booked to pay on arrival as per booking.com and will not be paying via Paypal.

ZEN apartments- shabby and disappointing. Walls dirty, chipped need repainting. Dreadful bathrooms and hand towels for bathroom. NOT what is advertised. We weren't met for ages, drove around in a taxi not knowing where to check in. NO one on site- NO LETTER or details. Dreadful mattresses. NOT EVEN 3 Star in my ratings.

BEWARE of this dodgy company!
