Our last visit to London was a sweet and bitter experience.
The flat is very well equipped with great space and nice high ceilings.
It is close to good public transport and quick and simple to get to the centre of London.
As far as accommodation goes it is perfect for two people.
Both of these following experiences could have happened anywhere in London but this is where we experienced them.
We visited in summer and when at the flat, we would open the top windows in the lounge. There is no fan in the flat. One night both our laptops were stolen. Someone actually climbed into the lounge, while we were sleeping, and stole our laptops.
We were under a false sense of security. We live in South Africa where security is a major concern and never thought that it could happen in London, while we were in the flat.
For the first time in London (we visit once a year), I was very aware of the aircraft noise very early in the morning and until late at night. Clearly this flat is on the approach to the airport for the large intercontinental aircraft (A380, B747, B777). Resulted in early morning wake up calls.
I would stay here again, but not during the summer months when I would need to have windows open.
