Here is the scoop:
- Place is as pictured perhaps feels a bit smaller. Everything is brand new, clean and as described. Patio is huge and we thought we would use it all the time, however it was raining every day. Bathrooms very functional, good water pressure. Stocked with bare necessities.
- Location was perfect for tourists wanting to be within easy access to major sites. With exception of Friday and Saturday nights place was very quiet. There is a small family ran food shop across the street, Starbucks and Tesco just around the corner within 3-5 min.
Couple of areas of improvement:
1. Bed was very uncomfortable and sheets/blankets were very low quality. Duvet was smaller than the blanket and it created very unpleasant bulging effect. Once I took the blanket out it was the 100% polyester scratchy type. I guess most people would not care but it bothered me and I think given the price tag I expect more.
2. There is a quite a bit of light coming through the plastic blinds at night.
Small note: Washer had an issue: it washed but dryer did not work. We called the host and the issue was addressed. Took a bit of time since it happened on the weekend. They communicated with us and made sure we know the progress.
Great apartment and just around the corner from Westminster parliament and Big Ben, we arrived late but we're giving instructions on how to get in to the apartment. Noted: very nice cafe in the corner with the apartment
We stay on this apartment for couple of night and it was just great and the staff from the agency was very helpful and patience, first time we booked an apartment and it was very good !
There is an Starbucks just around the corner ( I cant leave without one ! )
