Aviva Studio Apartments

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Aviva Holiday Studios was very comfortable, near the metro, clean and the staff was very kind.
Our room had everything that you need, though it was a little small and the view was on a wall (but this details are not very important when you spend most of your time in the City).
We recommend these apartments and certainly we will return.

We stayed at Aviva Holiday Studios on the 9th May and thoroughly enjoyed it. The owners are polite, well mannered and very welcoming. Obviously its located in Hammersmith, and as me and my girlfriend got off the tube, it was literally a right turn straight down to the bottom of the road and then a small left, and voila! We were there.

Upon arrival we were shown to our room on the top floor which had a shared bathroom (this was not a problem as we never saw anyone else use it). We were briefed on checkout time and the available utlities (kitchen, fridge, microwave, iron, ironing board etc) and then left to our own devices.

We travelled ALL over London and then the next morning when it was time to checkout we decided to do some more sight-seeing so asked if we could leave our luggage in reception, they said we could which was very nice of them and then we went about our day.

The best thing about the stay was the fact i left my jogging bottoms in the room by accident, and then when we got back they had put them ontop of my luggage, i thought "aww, how sweet".

Overall a great location and a great stay if you want a CHEAP but classy place to stay.

Room Tip: Watch out for the "shared" bathroom if you dont already know about it

I found this place to be clean and tidy, quiet, with good wifi and in a convenient location. There's a Sainsbury's around the corner to get some food and the self catering facilities were fine. The host was very pleasant and friendly when I called to ask about the hob. Although the range of utensils was limited (for example no bottle opener) the room had Sky TV whereas other places I've stayed at were limited to free-to-air.

Room Tip: Room 10 faces the back and is therefore quiet

Very good position, 5 mn walking to Hammersmith Station. There are shops, restaurants and pubs near the station. Everything is clean, the area is calm. Boris and his wife are very kind and helpful. The prices are fair. There is a car park on the other side of the street but it's expensive (17£ per day). I strongly recommand this place.

Fantastic position, owner very kind, everything was perfect! I hope coming back in London very soon :).
The tube is 5 minutes walking, moreover the Hammersmith station is a node for 4 lines of the tube..so reaching every part of the city is really easy! Great ;)

As a budget hotel, this rates along with the best I have stayed in at a budget price. The proprietor, Boris and his lovely wife treat you like a member of the family and do every thing to make your stay a good one. If you want a clean, friendly and centrally located apartment, and can manage a few stairs, then this is the place for you. I will be back!
