Host was very prompt with replies and genuinely concerned for our understanding of directions which were not difficult. Tube ride from LHR was direct on the Piccadilly line with no transfers. An elevator was at the station so we did not have carry our luggage up a flight of steps. We always look for rooms that are quiet and this one is. The room is below street level and not much sun. Since we had jet lag this worked ok for us. We used the kitchen for most of our meals and did a small load of laundry. The bed is king size but getting old. I would also say the flat is only for two adults, max. The hot water use in the shower is very hot and very difficult to adjust and there is a note about it but it use extreme caution! The location is great and a five min walk to the tube. Flat could use some serious updating.
Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed to have your two-star rating as of the other five reviews since May we have four five-star and one four-star.
The flat is quite spacious for two people, this is often commented on. When guests request a third person we explain the layout in detail, it is usually for a child. In general London holiday rentals at this price are small. The bed is super king size 6ft, 180cm, wide, most guests are very pleased with this. Many flats will have a standard double, which is 4ft 6 ins. wide.
We do make it clear in the description that it is "homely" rather than "corporate" style and this is reflected in the modest price for the location and size. Most of our guests find it very good value for money and we are happy to say that many are repeat visitors, some come for regular stays. We are often asked to specify dates available for a return visit. Thank you again and we do hope you will come back.
Charming flat in ideal London location
The location 5 minutes away from Gloucester Road tube station couldn't be more ideal for access to all that Central London has to offer. There's also coffee shops, Tesco shopping and a number of local restaurants to get you going on your London adventure. The flat itself is even larger than it looks - comfortable and well-appointed. I told Jeanniee (the gracious owner) that I had such fun pretending I was living in a fashionable London flat for a week! Highly recommend it!
Good value for the money - Great Location
Clean flat, fantastic location, quiet, dark rooms for sleeping and a nice, considerate hostess. Great value! We found the mattresses a touch uncomfortable, especially the pull out, but the linens were crisp and clean and the pillows were nice. The kitchen is well appointed. Thank you very much for a pleasant stay.
Clean, quiet and comfortable flat in an excellent location. Engaged and gracious host.
Excellent location, helpful host. Everything I needed was available.
I stayed at the flat for 28 days and enjoyed it so much. Nice & close to tube and buses. Walking distance to museums. Lots of eating places and supermarkets nearby. Jeanie is a wonderful host and made sure I had everything I needed. Flat has cooking facilities, dishwasher and washing machine. Lots of books/information about London as well.
Great location. Quiet and spacious for London.
Location is convenient to restaurants and the underground. Enjoyed our time there.
