We stayed at Arlington House at the beginning of this month, in a one bedroom flat. The porters gave us a warm welcome, and were very kind and helpful throughout our stay.
The apartment was comfortable, but was not furnished or decorated to the standard shown on their website. The couch needed cleaning, the cushions sagged, and the bedroom furniture was of poor quality. The bathrooms and kitchen were new and very nicely done, but the cookware and utensils were the most basic in both quality and quantity. If you plan to cook, you will need to keep it simple.
Ultimately, it is the little things that would cost little and make a big difference: no paper tissues, no shampoo or conditioner, no salt and pepper in the kitchen. No tablecloth, napkins or place mats to set the dining table, or tray to carry things from the kitchen to the dining room. Average quality linens on the beds, no duvets, just a polyester bed cover of indeterminate color.
The location is outstanding both in terms of ease of access to activities and museums, and the quality of the neighborhood. We had a park-side unit as requested, which provided a nice view.
We have stayed here twice before over the years, and I imagine we will stay here again, but it will be for the location, rather than the apartment's charm or character, particularly given the price.
