This flat was the perfect place for us to stay. Three of us (parents and third kiddo) visited our two kid who are studying in London for the spring semester. The two visited the flat a lot, and the living room and kitchen were great for the five of us - and the two bedrooms and bathrooms were great for the three of us who stayed there. We cooked breakfast for five most days. the flat has all the cookware, dishes and flatware we needed. Plus - there's a Nespresso original line espresso machine in the kitchen, and a Nespresso shop (on Regent Street) within walking distance, so we enjoyed that bit of home hugely. The flat is very user-friendly, was easy to hang out in and make our home for two weeks, and was perfect for our needs. The bathrooms aren't the Ritz, but they served our purposes. The living room is more comfortable and accommodating than the pictures suggest - it's great. All in all, five stars, and a great first-VRBO experience for our family. And did I mention the Nespresso machine???

THIS IS A REVIEW FOR THE SKYFALL APARTMENT ON BLOOMSBURY STREET!

Three days prior to my trip to London, I was informed that the Story Time apartment had been severely damaged by the prior group of renters. My reservation was changed to the SKYFALL apartment, which apparently is very close to the other apartment.

First, the entire experience of meeting someone at the apartment was poorly managed. Why? The information I was given clearly was written by a non-native English speaker. If I had been told to actually ring the apartment from street level instead of waiting at the entrance door to the building, then I would have saved 45 minutes waiting outside for someone to appear. Turns out the "guest manager" was inside the apartment the entire time. She claims to have sent me a text message on my mobile phone, but it was never received.

Second, while the apartment is clean and the beds and whatnot are o.k., the noise level from the street is unbearable at night. I realize that I was visiting a big city, but even with double windows, the roar of double-decker buses, garbage truck, sirens, and drunken people chatting it up on the sidewalks below at all hours of the night made what seemed like a great and convenient location almost intolerable. If you choose the SKYFALL apartment, bring ear plugs or noise-cancelling headphones.

Third, and most troubling. I was reassured by host Melanie S. that someone would be at the apartment to return my cash security deposit at an agreed-upon time the morning of my departure. I had left a Euros deposit with the first "guest manager", and she had no problem taking my money. The value of the deposit I gave actually is more than what is required in GBP. 15 minutes past the agreed-upon time, I sent Melanie a message through this site, asking where the person was and when they would arrive. There was no answer. After 30 minutes, I phoned the "direct" local number she had given me. The connection was absolutely horrible, and I understood only about every fourth or fifth word she spoke. The words I heard were bank and 15 minutes. I waited an additional 15 minutes, and still nobody showed. By then, I had to leave for the airport. I am now two days back from my London trip, and I have yet to receive my security deposit.

BOTTOM LINE: noisy apartment best avoided, terrible communication with host, concerns about trustworthiness of this business interaction with money still on the table that I wonder if I will ever...

We could not be better received for our weekend in London. Melanie and her team were perfect (always available and very pleasant before and during the trip ) . Moreover we were upgraded to a larger apartment but in the same style as this one and everything was like the pictures . Do not hesitate to book your vacation with them !
