For me, these reviews ultimately come down to value. While there were a few small quibbles I could make about the unit, the value that we got for our 8 night stay made this a 5-star property.
~~ Pros ~~
Location, location, location. Easy access to the Underground, Camden Market, Sainsbury's (for groceries), restaurants, and coffee. We were always an easy trip away from wherever we were going.
Comfort: 4 rooms for 2 couples and 2 teens. Everybody had their own space to relax and decompress. Comfortable beds.
Amenities: We all traveled with only a carry-on, so we utilized the washing machine - perfect. Towels, hair dryer, cooking utensils, table for playing games, toilet paper, etc.
Host: Anthony was responsive, kind, and helpful. He gave us some great tips that we utilized, and his walk-through was perfect.
~~ Cons ~~
Small quibbles - the carpet has a couple of stains, some of the property is a bit dated, hot water pressure in the kitchen wasn't as good as at home... like I said, small issues that would have bothered me if I was spending $300 a night.
Bottom line: This is a great property for exploring London and being able to relax at night and make a nice breakfast before venturing out for the day.
We absolutely loved this flat. It's situated just 2 blocks from Hyde Park very close to Kensington Palace. Check in was easy and Ann and Ivo eft us to our own devices but were responsive to emails when we needed something.
The flat itself is very roomy with a very comfortable king size bed with lovely linens and a nice size bathroom. The kitchen is small but functional with a small table for 2 in the hallway and a little sitting area. We also had a little patio area out the front door. We were absolutely delighted with the space both inside and out.
There are plenty of grocery stores and restaurants on the block and just a few minutes to the tube.
This part of town is lovely and it felt safe. We were able to use uber very efficiently as well as public transportation.
I would stay in this flat again in a heart beat and felt the price was amazing for the benefits.
