Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

No surprises. The place was exactly as described. Very close to tube stations. It is a little tight for three people, but we were really only there to sleep. The beds are comfortable. There were extra pillows. Quiet neighborhood. Great communication with owners. We would stay here again.

Old fashioned but comfortable

  • 4 of 5

A useful bolthole for a short stay.

The only caveat was our first night was Saturday. The road was busy all night with traffic and people talking in the street. Unfortunately, the bedroom is on the street. Double glazing the window would make a lot of sense, as we could not sleep.

Comfortable and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenage son, and I thoroughly enjoyed our 6 night stay stay in this flat. The layout was perfect for the three of us, especially because both the living room with sofa sleeper and the bedroom had a doors which could be closed to the central hallway, allowing us to move about to the bath and kitchen without waking up a late sleeper. The Earl's Court location is conveniently located on a fairly quiet street in this bustling neighborhood. It's a quick trip via tube or bus to historic London sights, plus has easy access to train lines out to the southwest countryside. All the beds were comfortable, plus the flat was clean and thoughtfully supplied with paper goods, coffee, and sugar. Take the time to walk through the nearby Brompton Cemetary, visit the farmers' market on Saturday morning at the neighborhood elementary school, and walk the lovely side streets and parks. The rental company communicated well and was flexible.

8 nights in London

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our girls trip to London. The flat is exactly as described and only a block from a tube entrance and 2 blocks from grocery stores, pubs and dining. This was a great place to explore London from, quiet at night but easy to get to all of the of interest. We were met at the flat upon arrival and had contact information to contact him if any issues arose during our stay! The booking process was clear and information provided was thorough. We received the security deposit refund within a week after departure. The whole booking was offensive from beginning to end. We would recommend this flat to everyone.

Great location for a London visit

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a week on our first visit to London. The location was fantastic! The apartment is easy to get to on the Underground from Heathrow, which was a big plus, and easy to connect to all the big sites of the city.

The apartment itself is as pictured on the website. It's a bit tired and smaller than we are used to in North America, but totally adequate, in a great location and at a great price. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. There are many restaurants and pubs in the area as well as a M&S Food store, if you want to 'eat in'. The apartment was clean and the bed was very comfortable.

If we were to return to London, we wouldn't hesitate to rent this unit again.
