“Great Service / Convenient Location”

As first-time visitors to London, we were very fortunate to be met by such a responsive and helpful property owner. Our rental car was partially disabled on the way to the flat, and the owner personally helped us find safe and legal parking (available along the busy adjacent streets) so we could get help. He also explained the public transportation system and gave us a ride to the train station so we wouldn't miss our play. There was some confusion on our part regarding the checkout time, and he was as accommodating as could reasonably be expected of anyone. He was also very quick to respond to our messages on TripAdvisor, including providing a quote for the flat, answering our questions, and refunding the deposit once the trip was over. Thus, we feel that the service we received was outstanding!

We were traveling on a budget and needed a unit that would fit my spouse and me as well as two friends (another couple). This unit was perfect because the couch in the living/dining room folded out into a bed and the door even closed to create the appearance of a second bedroom. Thus, everyone had quiet and privacy. It was also nice to have a washing machine so we wouldn't have to pack as many clothes. (It took me a little time to figure out how to use it, but I am use to American machines, which apparently work a little differently). The refrigerator and other kitchen appliances worked well, so we were able to prepare some of our meals at the flat, which was convenient and saved us some money. Everything was small (by American suburban standards), but that was to be expected, especially for the price and location. There is no air conditioning, but that seemed to be common for London, too.

Not being familiar with London, we hadn't realized at first that the unit was located in a part of the city (Brixton) that maybe isn't the best. We didn't really feel comfortable being outside after dark and it was a little noisy, but there weren't any real problems. It definitely seemed fair for the price and, given our cost limitations, I would stay there again (but probably not with children). It's about a 15 minute walk to the train station, but there are also buses that run that way, so it's very accessible to public transportation. Once you get to the train station (more or less at the bottom point of the public transportation grid), you can get anywhere fairly quickly and easily. We visited places like Buckingham Palace, the British Museum, and the Tower of London, and they were all easy to get to.

The things I liked best were definitely the owner, the layout of the flat (how there are effectively two bedrooms), and the unit's access to public transportation. The thing I liked the least was the immediate neighborhood in which the flat is located (lots of graffiti, noise, trash, etc.). I would recommend this flat to other small groups of adults traveling to London on a budget, especially if you plan to spend most of your time seeing the sights and not that much time at the flat. If you are unsure about the flat, I would recommend contacting the owner, as he is very responsive and helpful!
