The apartment was roomy and clean in an area that was pretty convenient to a nice neighborhood pub, short walk to a large grocery store, minutes away from the embankment and the tube. The neighborhood is mixed, quiet, and we always felt safe. Picking up the key was easy and the kitchen even had a nice supply of basics. We enjoyed the bottle of bubbly and the biscuits on the balcony. We shared the apartment with another couple and found it soooo much better than having hotel rooms.
Well located for transport to all parts of London, the apartment was ideal for this family of London experts.
Pubs and restaurants recommended by locals gave us nights free from cooking but there’s a super Tesco’s near by for home catering.
A secure building with easy check in via a local shop,the apartment met our expectations in most respects.
Spacious apartment at great location; enjoying in peace in the middle of London. Bright, nicely furnished apartment with two bathrooms. Perfect fit for families with children. The host even leaves basics in the kitchen and bathroom (spices, cereals, soap).
My family (2 adults, 3 children ages 13,10 and 8) were all very comfortable in this clean, open, spacious and modern apartment. There are lots of great restaurants, a traditional English tea shop, a park and the small Vauxhall City Farm all within walking distance. The Vauxhall underground stop is less than a 10 minute walk (use Google maps to show you the shortest route through pleasure gardens park). The apartment is also a similar distance from the Kennington stop on the Northern line. We rode the tube or nearby buses each day to easily visit sites like the London Bridge, the London Eye, the Natural History museum, Wicked at the Apollo Victoria theatre, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Shrek’s Adventure, the Sea Life London Aquarium, the Science Museum, Aladdin at the West End Theatre, and it was only about twenty minutes (including the walk) to the London Eye area where there are multiple tourist sites. The owner was very responsive to our requests and provided clear instructions for the check-in and check-out process. Also notable is that is a full-time rental- meaning the entire apartment is available for your use unlike owner occupied units with locked closets or other personal belongings in your rental. The area feels safe even at night. If we return to London, we’d be happy to stay here again.
I have to be honest, had I read the previous review 'Renter Beware' before I had made my booking I would have run a mile. Coming here roday to leave a review for Pamela and Al's incredible apartment, I was shocked to read it. My experience and everyone elses apart from this mean spirited review has been very different. The apartment building is a gated and secure modern building in an extremely quiet and tranquil neighbourhood. It felt very safe, very residential and even a elementary school a few streets down. We were a 5 minute walk to the beautiful River Thames and both myself and my partner couldn't have had a friendlier experience with Al and his incredible attention to detail in answering our questions and helping us plan our vacation. The apartment itself is very spacious, we hadn't expected an ensuite bathroom, but got one! It was one wonderful surprise after the other and should we return to London, we will come back. I suspect the previous review was left by a competitor.
