This property is exactly as it was shown. Very modern and nice! Great accommodations and the owners were wonderful to work with.
My husband, our two teenagers and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this flat. The kitchen has everything you need and there are several grocery stores nearby. I couldn't get the dryer function on the washerdryer to work, but it was very nice to have the washer after 9 days of traveling. The big TV in the living room was great for watching the Olympics. The rooms and beds are small by American standards. The nicest surprise was the neighborhood - little shops, pubs, cafes are all just a block or two away. Lamb's Conduit Street was particularly nice. It's very easy to get the bus anywhere else you want to go.
Modern, well kept and in the heart of London makes this a great place to stay. Nice size kitchen and living room made it very comfortable for the 5 adults staying here. We had a few electrical issues during our 5 day stay. The management was very prompt to address and take care of it. The only thing I might caution other renters on is the staircase. While it looks great, (a smooth flat single piece of stone for each step with a thick solid glass panel instead of a railing for each level) it can be challenging for those that need more assist or support going up and down the stairs. It is slippery and without a traditional railing hard to hold onto the glass panel for support.
We absolutely loved this condo. Extremely clean and modern. The location was great, close bus stations made it very convenient to get around. Plenty of space for my wife and our 5 children. The owner was very helpful in helping plan our pick-up at the airport and getting us our key. Several restaurants withing walking distance, we were even able to walk to the train station upon our departure to take the Eurostar.
This apartment is in a great quiet location within long but comfortable walking distance of several major attractions. These may be a mile or so away but the walk is pleasant and if you choose not to walk there is always a readily available cab or Uber. Neighborhood itself is very quiet but you don't feel isolated. the apartment itself has obviously been recently updated with very striking decor. Probably not best choice for young children as there are 3 levels of wooden stairs with glass handrails. Appliances are easy to use and very efficient. Plumbing and heating are perfect. Highly recommend this apartment for those who want to be away from busy tourist areas.
Who we are: We are a family with two teenage kids from America. We have been to England several times but never spent this much time in London.
The Stay: 8 days in late March/early April and the weather was cold but mostly sunny. There were a few moments of rain/hail (!)
The lowdown: You will swear off staying at hotels after experiencing this property. A+!
The pros: Most everything. So clean and like new. We like to walk so it was perfectly situated. Near M&S & Waitrose or Co-op for groceries. Lots of coffee shops (love Hopper - next door!) and restaurants (L'Osteria 57 was a cute/cheap Italian)...It is in the middle of London and yet somehow in a quiet/not intense section that we were unfamiliar with...3 stations are close and 10-15 minute walk but we actually walked to most sites w/o Tube. Pretty much everything is walkable. The house is beautiful and super clean.The facilities are great - pots/pans/everything you need. Towels, soap etc...TV was perfect. Karen was always available in a flash. They are very helpful and run a tight ship. Everything should be left as it was when you arrive and you should treat it like it is your own home because it is evident they take good care of it. Beds were comfortable and showers were great. Wifi was fantastic. Common area is very comfortable. Instruction manuals for all appliances. And heat/air for each room. Honestly, this is an amazing place...felt like we lived there.
The cons: Not many. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are v. small. Who cares, really though as you won't be there much. The kitchen is ground floor so expect to eat at the island or the small table there vs. lugging things up the stairs to the dining room...for us it was fine. Steep stairs throughout - for us was not a problem. The ground floor bedroom didn't feel right to leave our youngest there...you are right on the street. But the street is quiet and very residential. We had a couple hiccups early on...it was a little tense for a few moments but ultimately was fine when they understood our POV and made up for it.
We really were able to enjoy London. Karen is great and helpful - got us a car for Heathrow - great driver! Felt relaxed and "at home" and cannot say enough about how great a place this is to stay. If you've been to London you will be shocked at how central it is and yet an area you may not know a lot about. We will always have great memories from this vacation. Staying at hotels seems downright stupid after staying here.

A few minutes walk beyond this takes you into the heart of the London's theatre district, the West End. Enjoy a play, musical or opera and dinner out in one of the world's preeminent theatre and dining areas.
