Our party was two adults and three teens for eight days. We needed three bedrooms to make it work. After reading reviews here, we specifically booked one of the 3-bedroom apartments on the top floor (Rm 151).
--GREAT location on a beautiful street. Near to Gloucester Station (Picadilly, Circle and District lines) but far enough to be completely peaceful and quiet.
--Reasonable price (for London) if you need lots of space.
--Modern, well-stocked kitchen cut down on need to eat out every meal.
--Clean, up-to-date bathrooms. Comfortable beds.
--High floor with nice deck and virtually no noise.
--Front door is attended 24-hours and desk staff was very helpful and accommodating.
--One portable air conditioner in living room worked very well but we had extraordinarily nice weather. Be aware that rooms would have been very uncomfortable in warm weather. (This is an issue widely in London as a/c is definitely not a universal amenity.)
--Elevator is very small and very slow. We were gone most of every day and worked around this without much issue. There is nothing to be done about this but be aware.
-WiFi is absurd. It was complimentary with our room but effectively non-functional. If you need to get any work done or rely on the Internet for entertainment, this is not an option that will work for you.
Would definitely recommend.
