Stayed in Apt 48 owned by Diverse UK. First impressions were pretty bad. The security guard in the reception had no idea about anything so we had to search online for a phone number as there were none in the emails we had. We were lucky he let us sit in the foyer while doing this. Eventually found a number... More

We had originally booked a one bedroom apartment but received a 2 bedroom apartment instead(which I can't complain about). Pros: Transportation was really close to the apartment so that was convenient.The apartment was clean and spacious. The Internet was excellent. The beds were really big, but uncomfortable. There was a cute little balcony and the apartment itself was quite modern.... More

If you're visiting London with more than 2 people for a longer stay, I strongly recommend this place, because the fixed cost of the apartment can be... More
