“Great location, flat ok”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The location of this flat is brilliant, walking distance to 2 tube stations and Waterloo train station. Also walking distance to the amazing Borough Market, theaters, tons of restaurants and sightseeing. However have to say the flat fell short of expectations. The main issue was the musty smell every time we walked in we noticed it. I suppose this is to be expected in a basement flat of an old building, but hard to look past with my wife's asthma. The shower was tricky to use, especially for my height (6 ft). and had to be careful not to get water over the floor. We found out that the washing machine was broken, which was frustrating given this was the last stop before heading home . But we were impressed with the offer by Ellie to launder our clothes for us! Thank you :).

To provide a bit of perspective:

The shower head stands nearly 6ft 9in (205cm) above the base of the bath. I'm 6ft 4in and use it without problems. Shower curtains have since been replaced but were in any event fully able to enclose the internal oval of the bath. The bathroom floor is tiled, with concrete under, so any splash water can easily be mopped.

The guests were told some days before arrival that the washer-dryer had just failed, with the offer instead to do a load of laundry for them (Ellie ended up doing three). A new machine has meanwhile been installed.

I'm at the flat now and, though detecting no pervading mustiness, have cleared some old cardboard packaging from the understair storage vault at the front door in case that might have been the cause. Although severe asthmatics might in general be better advised to book a modern air-conditioned hotel room when travelling, I too have a history of asthma but have never suffered when here.

“A great place to stay to visit London”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our stay there was perfect. Borough has a very authentic flavour and it's a quiet, very convenient location, near two underground stations, supermarkets and nice pubs to chill out -we enjoyed the Gladstone and the Libertine very much. The flat has lots of comfortable features, specially the amazingly comfy bed and all the appliances needed. Very clean, nice smell, cozy, everything worked smoothly... In just one word, perfect. The owner showed high standards in every exchange we had, but particularly we appreciate (and congratulate him!) his excellent taste in hiring people to take care of the guests: Fernando (the housekeeper) is the perfect host. He made us feel welcomed and gave us all the help and assistance we needed. He is amiable, helpful, kind and elegant, and we were happy to know that he lived nearby so he could be reached easily. We will not hesitate to try this place again next time we visit London.

“Wonderfully peaceful!”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The flat was clean, well-appointed, and located in a peaceful residential area. There was enough room for the 3 of us to not feel cramped. Four people would easily be comfortable here. The appliances all worked perfectly. We especially appreciated the convenience of the washer/dryer and the dishwasher. Two small grocery stores were only steps away and fulfilled our shopping needs nicely. The flat was convenient to a myriad of public transportation options and was centrally located to all of the major sights that we visited.

We especially appreciated that after a long day of sight seeing we could retreat to such a quiet environment to unwind. Once you have experienced the crazy mass of humanity in the "hot zones" of tourism, you will especially appreciate this amenity.

The owner and his assistant were very responsive to all of my questions and made themselves readily available should I have any concerns.

Should we find ourselves back in London we will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend the flat.
