Excellent location, flat, and communication
This flat is close to two Underground stations, and is situated in a quiet neighborhood. It is perfect for going into central London for the day, and then coming back to a quiet and peaceful place to rest. Clean and large, with everything you need to feel at home. The owner is very responsive to texts. We would stay there again.
Communication with Faiza was excellent. The property is in a good neighbourhood with easy tube access. The major concern was the bed the mattress needs to be replaced. We woke with back aches every morning. Very uncomfortable.
Thank you for your review. If I may just rectify our mattress is in good condition and less than 3yo. We’ve asked several more guests after you left if they were comfortable and everyone was satisfied. I think it wasn’t just adapted to your needs.
Extended stay in London
We recently stayed two weeks in Faiza’s apartment. The booking and communication process with Faiza was seamless. He responded quickly to my questions and concerns and when we arrived, we were met at the apartment and explained the heating system etc.
The apartment can be used for four people but more accommodating for two. I was there with my daughter and two granddaughters for one week. My granddaughters slept on a pullout sofa and said it was very comfortable.
Having two bathrooms is very helpful, especially with four women! After they left my husband joined me and we made full use of the kitchen facilities which is well equipped. The apartment is very airy. There are other folks on an upper floor but it was very quiet. The only reason why I gave the review four stars is because the sofa is not the same as pictured in the photo. There is washer dryer combo which is very handy for an extended stay.
The property’s location is a quick walk from two tube stops. Because Baron’s Court is on the Piccadilly Line getting to and from Heathrow is simple. We found places to buy groceries nearby and there are restaurants in the area. We had some lovely dinners at Curtains Up . Excellent takeaway meat pies can be purchased at the butcher shop right near the Baron’s Court Tube station. Try C’est Ici for baked goods, sandwiches and coffee. Earls Court is a bit further but certainly walkable and has much to offer.
Overall the property is a find. The neighborhood is excellent and Faiza is a very good manger; I appreciated how he communicated and would definitely stay again.
Thank you so much for your kind review.
We still need to take a picture of the new sofa and upload it. The one pictured is not a sofa bed.
Upon arrival we received the keys from a young man waiting outside the flat. He handed the keys to us and left. We never met with Faiza but corresponded via emails. Although we requested two separate sleeping spaces months before arrival, only the bed in the bedroom was prepared. Wet sheeting and towels in the dryer was left in the laundry cubicle. We had to make up the couch bed in the lounge ourselves. The carpet in main bedroom is stained and filthy. The plumbing is in need of repairs. The flat is spacious and well equipped. Be careful of the dishwasher door though. It is heavy and falls forward to the floor. It slipped out of my hand onto my foot, quite painfull.There are 2 metros a few blocks away from the flat. A £200 deposit was taken when we booked. With currency fluctuation receiving the deposit back it cost me £25.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
We are sorry your experience didn’t refcelt the level of service we wish to offer our guests
Sadly the previous guest who left just before you arrived stained the carpet broke a few things in the apartment and used all the bed linen. All these things have been fixed now and everything is back to normal.
Convenient Location and nice price
We were only there for 3 days and this place met all our needs. It had a nice kitchen but we ate all our meals out so we were just looking for something clean and convenient to the Tube. This met our needs. The bed left something to be desired as it was just a double mattress with no springs and for us was quite small. The furniture was nice but very modest and the sofa and chairs were all very low. Great for someone with short legs.
Experience London like a local
We were quite comfortable in this rental for a party of 4.
It is in great location to two Tube stations. Although we experienced a heat wave during our stay. The fans provided kept us cool.
Many shops restaurants and stores close by. Very convenient by train from Heathrow. We were also allowed to leave our luggage at earlier time before check in time. Would recommend this rental.
