Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived Eurostar after our trip of Paris and found this lovely apartment a wonderful choice even the tea and biscuits was a site for tired eyes, many many sites right on our doorstep was amazing. With this in mind we were able to very easily and safely walk most places and the underground station is also next door to the apartment for further afield. We felt like neighbours to the queen and the prime minister.

Our stay exceeded our high expectations. We will return and will recommend the apt to our friends

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at an apt in Europe and we were a bit nervous about doing so. However everything went smoothly. The apartment was very nice and the location was superb. The staff was helpful and responsive to our every need. We could not have asked for a better experience and hopefully will return again to stay at this apt in the near future. The apartment was convenient to everything a tourist could need or ask for; tube, bus lines, wide variety of eating choices all within easy walking. Plus have St James so close for a morning stroll could not be beat. Loved our stay!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Marc is an amazing host and offered great tips on transportation prior to our arrival! The apartment is located right next to St. James tube and is walking distance to many attractions, cafes and pubs. The washer and dryer in the apartment were a huge bonus as we are on a 3 week trip and appreciated not having to go to the laundromat!

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, our two young teens, and I loved our recent stay at your flat. The location was absolutely perfect. The tube entrance is just a few steps away and we loved being so close to St. James Park and all the wonderful sites of Westminster. We also loved seeing the horses go by every morning. We had plenty of space for everyone and the kitchen was quite useful for breakfast and lunch. We really appreciated that the flat already had things like coffee, sugar, and clothes washer detergent. The only (minor!) downside was the heated towel rack which kept the flat on the warm side. In addition, while opening the windows helped cool off the flat, it increased the noise because of all of the city traffic. However, the advantages greatly outweighted these minor inconveniences. This flat was really excellent value and I would stay here again in an instant!

Excellent location, cozy property

  • 5 of 5

The flat was perfectly located — just a few minutes’ walk to so many great locations, and very convenient Tube access as well. It’s a bit of a busy street during weekdays, as the Ministry of Justice is just across the street, so be prepared for a decent amount of noise Monday-Friday.

The apartment itself is small but more than enough room for 2 people, washer/dryer was a big plus. I would have liked to see a few more amenities - perhaps an iron and some laundry detergent, but these are minor quibbles.

Owner's Response: Dave, thank for very much for taking time out to review your stay at the apartment and am very pleased to read here and in the guest book that you enjoyed your short stay. If I may take this opportunity to comment on a couple of points you raise (1) Iron, this is located in the kitchen cupboard beneath the microwave and (2) Detergent, is in the cupboard beneath the sink in a container containing several "Detergent Pods" for use in the washing machine - I've asked my housekeeper to ensure both in future are more prominently displayed. Thank you for your feedback it is very helpful. You and your partner were great guests and look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon. Marc

This is an absolutely BRILLIANT property

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing get away! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the amenities of this amazing property. You can't beat the location...walking distance from many, many sites and tour officices. The underground station is just steps away and if needed, a Starbucks is directly across the street and we easily had Uber rides pick us up and drop us off here. Marc was very attentive, punctual and a dream to work with. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. We will stay here again next time we are visiting this beautiful city! Much appreciation, Marc!
