Excellent home base while exploring London
Stayed here 3 nights while seeing the sights of Central London. Close to the tube so we got around easily. The flat had everything we needed to be comfortable. The kitchen meant we could start with breakfast at home and even have supper in if we chose. Tim answered the booking request and subsequent enquiries promptly. Would stay here again.
Great local. Funky doesn't describe it....a bit shabby, manageable due to the expansive instruction
Would not stay again as probably best for the young and strong!
Simple place in a great location!
We loved this place. Easy walking distance to Tube station, lots of food options, shopping and groceries. Was super convenient for our week stay in London. Well stocked with all the essentials. Great shower with good hot water. Certainly not luxury or even high-end accommodations.
The loft sleeping arrangment is unique and might be dicey if you are prone to claustrophobia. My wife doesn’t always handle close quarters well, but she did fine in the “mezzanine sleeping pod.” Mattress was good enough for a couple of middle aged folks for a week!
If you need a home base from which to explore London, I would definitely recommend this place to groups of <= 4 people. Would stay here again for sure.
Dingey or careworn?
The whole apartment has an impression of being a bit worn out. Americans renting this property should note that the proportions of the photos do not easily convey the size of the flat: it is tiny. The sofas are not the same size as those in the US, and make the room seem larger than it is. Also, the fold-out is a bit short for sleeping (and has a terrible stiff line down the center when laid flat which makes it really uncomfortable as well as hard). Nor was the mattress in the loft very comfortable as the springs are evident.
The floors, while they look good pictures, are simply painted plywood that squeak as one walks. It is fine, but I would have preferred to have read in a review prior to going. The rug is best not mentioned, and the cleaners have clearly missed the herd of dust bunnies behind the radiator in the bathroom, and the mold growing on the walls above its window.
The kitchen is teeny, it has virtually everything that one might want, other than enough room to do the dishes without moving the trash bin. However, one should expect to wash anything prior to use as the open shelves mean that the copious dishes, pots and pans collect dust and film.
It is also unfortunate that the decor is so large and there is no easy place to store away all the extraneous stuff that gets in the way once one has more than two people in the room. Nor are there any places to put either luggage or clothing; no luggage stands, no available drawers, and the only place to hang clothes is where the cleaning supplies are housed.
Finally, the linens. The towels were all a uniform over-washed grey, scratchy and just old. The "duvets" were really bad beneath the duvet covers, all were clearly washed, but also over-washed grey-white with the addition of being threadbare in some cases and not a single spare blanket in the place.
The location is great. It is a very pretty neighborhood. One can walk to Portobello Road Market, groceries, restaurants and fruit stands or to two Tube lines in minutes. Three stars for this.
Final note: the owner is very specific about when one can get information: one will not get the address until two weeks prior, and the door opening information is emailed the day one arrives. Information in the app (which I could access) did not provide sufficient clues. I had no access to email prior to getting in to the building, and the owner was clearly put out with me for calling to ask. It made me feel unwelcome.
Great Location and full of Sun!
I loved the location! The 7 Bus took me everywhere, ............ just around the corner! Best Travel London Tourist Tour is the London Bus, top floor! This flat / apartment is in a easy to go location, supermarkets and others stores just up the street! As well as all kinds of Transport routes! The apartment is Full of Sun and Light! All Year round! Loved the decoration and distribution, and decoration! Tim is a great House owner, ............. you have everything to Cook and Enjoy! Wifi great! Some ideas to make it Just Perfect! A pull out sofa on the GF,.......... that would be 100% Great Location + Perfect Apartment! !
Loved this apartment with loft. My 15 year son and I stayed here. It is very conveniently located to the tube but other than that, not a lot around it. Easy bus access too but we didn't take the bus. Very nice community fitness facility within walking distance. Definitely a residential feel which I appreciated. Wonderfully appointed kitchen.
