I rented this apartment for 9 days in July 2016, together with my wife and 2 teenage children. We had initally booked another of Kenneths apartments, but Kenneth offered to switch us to this one, to get a little bit more central. Great service!
The apartment is quite large. 1 huge + 1 good sized bedroom. Bathrooms for each bedroom + extra WC. Large living room + separate dining room, large kitchen and small washroom. All amenities and the apartment looked recently refurbished. So everything looked very new and shiny. After a day out in busy and towards the end really hot London, it was so good to return to this flat, so clean and with all the space. This was my first time in London. And I had been warned that London hotels and apartments might have a somewhat lower standard in cleanliness and outfit than at home.
But that was certainly not true for this one. Really high standard and very modern! And cool. Even with 32 C degrees outside, the temperaure inside was good.

Kenneth was a good host. Replied fast on emails via Tripadvisor or by phone. We experienced loss of internett once. But Kenneth fixed it in no time. So I felt very safe renting from him, and will probably try to do so again, next time I go to London.

There only one slightly negative thing I must mention: The placement of the apartment in the building:

Its in the cellar! I was not prepared for that. In the ad at Tripadvisor is says "Balcony" and "Patio". So I assumed it would be somewhere upstairs. Maybe first or second floor. So when we had to descend on flight of stairs after entering, I was a little bit dismayed.

Except for this, the apartment is very nice. The cellar-effect is not strong, since the apartment goes through the building, with windows on one side out to a kind of light-grave, and on the other with lots of big windows and a door out to a patio which is dug out, with masonry-walls. So its not completely underground! And I guess being partially underground is what makes it cool even when hot outside. But to be prepared that you will be living in a cellar, so no view. I think it would be a plus if this was mentioned in the ad.

Hi Karl whilst I appreciate your review to keep referring to the apartment as being in a cellar is extremely upsetting. The apartment is what we call in the UK a lower ground or garden flat. The patio is not as you refer to as a "dug-out" but at the back of the property and the masonry walls are in fact the walls of the building of the property which side two parts of the patio area. There was and is not in our description of the apartment any mention of a balcony. I am left slightly bemused by your review you state you had a great time you state that you were well looked after and you also comment on how clean the apartment was but then you go on and on about being in a cellar. This apartment is lower ground there are windows you can look out off We have had many many guests stay in this apartment and you are the very first guest to mention that the apartment is a cellar. Also Karl I have no idea where your colleagues have stayed in London in the past but I do feel that mentioning London Hotels and apartments not being clean is I think rather insulting. I would like very much for you to stay again in any of my apartments and you will be made most welcome because our standards never vary and we would offer you a clean bright and safe environment to stay.
