We're from the USA and recently had a very enjoyable 3-night stay. The apartment is located close (5 min walk) to the East Croydon train station, which itself is located halfway between Gatwick and Central London. The location was perfect for travel to/from the airport and travel to/from central London.
We met management at the concierge desk of the Altitude apartment tower, which is next door to the Latitude apartments. Management made us feel welcome during our arrival and was responsive to our requests. The apartment was modern and clean and exceeded our expectations.
One additional note: we enjoyed dining at BoxPark next to East Croydon train station, which has more than a dozen to-go style restaurants with many different types of food, including Indian, Brazilian, Thai, French, and others.
About the apartment: Well maintained modern apartment with spacious rooms. The under floor heating was very convenient. It is in a bank of apartments. Has a concierge (8AM - 8PM) who can take letters and deliveries, if needed. Need to pay separately for underground parking though.
Security: Has secure access to the apartment through remote access control with camera.
Location: 3 mins walk to the East Croydon junction with access to National Rail. 15 mins to London Bridge and 18 mins to London - Victoria via Clapham Junction. In effect, you can travel pretty much anywhere via these connections quite efficiently. In addition, you get taxi all the time from outside the station.
Local stores such as Sainsbury's and Waitrose are a stone's throw away. The East Croydon high street is only a few mins walk.
Overall, a great place if you are commuting to/ from London
We travel to Croydon for business so it was great to find alternative to a standard hotels.
The apartment was perfectly situated, easy to find with secure parking.
The apartment had lots of room and a bathroom each which was great as we travelling as colleagues so its good to have your own space.
The owners are extremely helpful and friendly and bent over backwards to make our stay a pleasant one, they took on board any comments or suggestions that we made and they went above and beyond what we expected.
The balcony was a definite plus for us and we loved the little treats that they left out for us in the kitchen.
Our only suggestions would be air con (however we did appreciate the fan, thank you) and wine glasses and an ironing board :)
We have stayed on a couple of weeks and would definitely stay again!
We were delayed at the airport and arrived 20minutes late
The manger waited for us and greeted us so kindly with a smile,tea and fruits that we all relaxed and had a great sleep.
She gave us a guide to all the facilities around the area especially a
2 minute walk to East Croydon station.
From East Croydon we traveled easily around London .
In the evenings we relaxed at Box Park which has an amazing atmosphere. Our apartment was spotless very comfortable and had a lot of room to manoeuvre around.
The kitchen was very useful when not eating out.
We were always met with a smile and help.
We felt great.
Thank you for your hospitality.
We are booking again for next year.

I needed a quick no-hassle solution and this was it. Although I only used one bedroom, the apartment was spacious with two bedrooms. The location was perfect for me as I had some business in the area, and if I'm in the area again, I'll definitely consider and recommend to others.
What a fabulous apartment in Croydon, with the station literally around the corner. The location is more than ideal, in a lovely residential neighborhood yet close to downtown. The building was private and quiet and although there were many other flats, we didn't hear or see others. The apartment is right in the center of everything but fashioned perfectly for a quiet stay. I was able to visit everything I wanted to via foot. Plenty of shops and Box Park / restaurants within walking distance. Very safe & walkable. It's spacious, well decorated, beautiful, clean, & extremely comfortable. There were plenty of towels, sheets, kitchen gadgets, etc and includes anything you could possibly need.
The staff have been wonderful from the moment we submitted a booking request. Always quick to respond, very helpful with advice and answers to any questions. Check in was simple and help extended to take our luggage up to our apartmennt. The apartment was just great and perfect for our needs. I recommend the location of the apartment to any intending visitors to London who would like the freedom of apartment accomodation (versus a stay in a hotel room) and to escape the madness of the city at the end of the day. I would absolutely stay here again and couldn't recommend it more highly!!!
We had a family 2-bedroom apartment and ours was brilliantly spacious. It was a large apartment, more space than others in central London so pleased with our choice!
Good equipment and fittings. The kitchenette was well stocked with dishes and dishwasher for our convenience, and a full sized refrigerator. As it was hot, the owner arranged for mobile aircon which was a bonus. The location is very near to the station and halal food is available on the doorstep. Box Park has a wonderful halal joint "Thai Express" that serves one of the best Nasi Goreng we had in London (other is Cafe Makan in Portobello Road). There are 2 supermarkets within 5 mins walking and a massive green park across the block. We felt very safe in the area and people were generally friendly in providing us with directions.
The staff were very friendly, professional and every attempt possible was made to be accommodating. They always had good attitude and quick answer. Next time we come to London, we will definitely stay here....Totally recommended!
