Looking for a july week vacation in London and being a family of 4, we ended up looking for an apartment. The Dreamhouse Vauxhall apartment is very well located, right next to a subway station and a taxi boat ramp, and with walking distance of touristic interests (for good walkers).
The building is rather new, the apartment quite comfortable, bathrooms recent, there is a washing machine/dryer, a dishwasher, everything was quite clean.
So why 1 star only?
In the digital age, when you advertise a hotel room, an apartment you put the right pictures. Don't sell all your apartments with only the picture of your best propriety. It is not honest business. Believing we would have a good location with an outside view, we ended up with a view on an internal court, and on the naked cooking neighbor.
Then, the wifi was not working, I had to stay in contact with my company and it was a hassle throughout this week. Granted, Dreamhouse refunded me L20 per day. Thank you, but I needed the wifi at home, not the money.
It is right too that Dreamhouse offered me another apartment. With no AC. In the middle of a heatwave.... Of course I declined the offer.
Last points : when you advertize a +L3000 apartment for a week, please put more than 4 plates, 4 knives, 4 forks... It looks cheap. Go grab a couple a tableware at Ikea, they're cheap too.
And the bedding is very very soft. Too soft for my back, but I don't know about the country's average bedding softness quality, it may be a British thing... ?
So in conclusion the 1 star only was there because with the full knowledge of the location I wouldn't have taken the deal. I would have chosen another location.
If they lied to me, are they going to tell YOU the truth?
