DO NOT TRUST THIS RENTAL! We just received notification that our booking was cancelled 3 DAYS prior to our scheduled arrival. That is incredibly unprofessional and leaves us in a very hard place with our travel dates so soon. Have a back-up if you want to stay here.... DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Although the apartment is somewhat dated, It served our purpose for the week. It was basic and had all the necessities that we needed- refrigerator, hair dryer, and WiFi. The kitchen looks like it was updated and clean. The bed and futon were comfortable. Extra blankets would have been useful in case of colder nights, and extra towels for guests staying 6-7 days ( management did offer extra towels but had to pick it up). The bathroom is a bit older and dated, but the shower head had a lot of pressure. The hot showers after a long outing was good. Some items needed to be changed for sure such as the shower curtain rod and curtain). Also, like in the previous review mentioned, there were some cob webs and dust in the corners. I didn’t want to bother the management and just wiped it away. It looks as though the place was left empty for a while since the last guests. It was overall a safe neighborhood, and if you are not too picky about some minor cosmetic issues.
Pro: Convenient location. (Great Portland tube station and Oxford Circus); nearby restaurants and grocery stores; washer in apt; updated kitchen; good for family of 3
Con: underground noise; limited storage space for luggage /clothes; blinds do not cover to floors; questions for management could be more prompt
The flat is located in an excellent neighborhood, very central and close to metro stations. The cleaning is rather poor and the room is quite cold in winter. The flat's key is not available on site but it is necessary to collect it to office in an other neighborhood. We arrived during the night and it was very uncomfortable for us.
Studio is in a good location. Different bus and underground stops 4-8 mins away from the apartment. Oxford street was 10 mins walking distance.
The wifi was good.
The studio had everything we needed, except an adapter for Europians and it would've been great to have salt, sugar.. things like that (I'm aware that it says it in the discription but having these things make staying somewhere always better).
The apartment was clean except the dust bunnies I kept finding on my socks from time to time from walking around in the apartment.
The apartment was a bit cold, too (visited in november). The first night we stopped heating with the small electric heater and it got really cold so the next nights we had it on full blast so it was warm enough for us.
All in all a nice place to stay.
Everything was perfect. The flat was clean, the bed is very confortable, we had all that we needed. The best thing is that the flat is only 10 minutes from Oxford street so you're close to the shops and the restaurants. I would definitely recommand this flat ! We were very sad to leave London after a such beautiful trip...
