"My wife and I stayed at the Handel Street flat for three weeks from late November to early December, 2014. It was perfect for us, comfortable, well-appointed, and well-maintained. Bob met us when we arrived and gave us a good briefing on the heating, appliances, and Internet. The WiFi is great—it let us check hours/locations of sites, the weather forecast, Transport for London and rail websites including Underground/bus delays, and e-mail family. The location of the flat is extremely convenient, on a quiet street close to main bus routes and tube stations including Russell Square, St. Pancras/Kings Cross, and Euston. The Oyster travel card (tube, bus, overground, and some rail) is a must. There are restaurants, pubs, and shopping close-by at the Brunswick Square center and on Marchmont, Woburn, and Hunter Streets, including a Waitrose supermarket which provided many convenient and inexpensive meals. The location is close to the British Museum, British Library, Dickens Museum and the many squares and small parks of Bloomsbury. The area feels very secure with many students and residents out during the day and evening. This flat very quickly became our home-away-from home. Bob and Sue were very thoughtful and provided us with some starter food items and their communication emails were professional and timely. We are anticipating a return visit!"
