“A great find.”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Truly, great value for the money. Phenomenal location very near Hammersmith station. Very clean. Really nice owners. Comfy and well appointed rooms. Couples or small families could easily stay for weeks at a time. I happened to be a solo business traveler. Tons of amenities nearby.

Cramped stairs (it's London). No lift (it's London). Smaller rooms (it's London). Street noise easily enters windows if you're street-facing. Hard to find at night because of dim street lighting.

We spent 3 nights at the Aviva, before flying back to Australia. Wonderfully equipped, clean, tidy and quiet. The owners make every effort to ensure your stay is comfortable and relaxed. Priced competitively for the area. Convenient for Hammersmith tube station, and therefore on the Piccadilly line for Heathrow (direct) or central London. Some good pubs in the area, check out the local Weatherspoons.

The only minor quibble on the place would be, as others have mentioned, steep stairs, no lift. Having said that the owner was courteous enough to carry my wife's (very heavy) suitcase up to our room for her. (Room 6)

Stayed in one of their flats for 2 nights.
The location is very good, close to the tube (2 minutes walk) and to many shops and restaurants (Westfield shopping center is just 10 minutes of walking and Primemark is just next door).
The rooms are small but hey, this is London - if you want luxury you need to pay up!

Overall it's good for people who like to travel cheap but also to stay at a very decent place.
Internet was good and room was very clean.

I stayed in a single room which was light and airy, with a comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen area including fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board. Such a pleasant change from many single rooms I have occupied, which have often been little more than a cupboard!!! It was great to have the option of cooking a meal myself rather than going out to eat, and to have a fridge enabling me to have fresh milk in my morning coffee. I do so hate that UHT stuff!!! Great location within easy reach of underground and buses, restaurants, pubs and theatres. Very pleasant and helpful staff (owners?) Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to anyone wanting overnight accommodation in London without having to pay the earth.

Stayed for one night mid-week. Room was very well furnished, very modern and tastefully decorated. We were on the top floor, so 3 flights of stairs to get up, but really lovely room. Comfy bed, spacious room with en suite and shower. Didn't use the kitchen, but looked very well equipped. Great location, minutes from the tube station, and close to bars, shops and restaurants. Would stay again!

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Aviva Studio Apartments and we were more than satisfied. From our numerous trips to London Aviva has surely been the best accommodation so far. Our apartment was very clean and the staff were extremely friendly and polite – even going out of their way to prepare the room earlier than the standard check-in time. As well, the apartments are located in a great part of the city with easily accessible transport links in all directions as well as a great selection of shops, restaurants, pubs, etc. in the immediate vicinity/neighbourhood. We would highly recommend Aviva for a great stay in London.
