What Past Guests Are Saying
We loved the Waterloo home!
I booked the location for my family of 6 six adults for our week-long vacation in London. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the size was perfect. We had unusually cold weather during our week-long stay, so the heaters in every room and the extra down comforters in the closet were greatly appreciated! Even with the extra need for heater use, we still had plenty of electricity, so did not need to worry about topping it up. The wi-fi was occasionally spotty, but overall worked well enough. Street noise was minimal with the windows closed. I am a light sleeper, but slept soundly with earplugs. As previous guests have mentioned, there are 6 flights of stairs within the flat, which might be difficult for someone with mobility issues, though wasn't problematic for us. The flat was spotless, and has been beautifully renovated. The pictures on the website match the flat's appearance perfectly. There were plenty of towels and a hairdryer in each bathroom - which was a bonus.
The location was perfect for us. The Waterloo tube station and the Southwark tube station are incredibly close - each is less than a 5 minute walk! There is a nice coffee-shop just below the flat, and a key-cutting/hardware store next door which was a great place to buy a sim card for our i-phone. Grocery store and aTM are right across the street. After a day out in the city, we loved coming home to our warm, quiet flat each evening. We would definitely stay here again!
Fantastic location, great place for families
Stayed here with 2 families was great. Had read reviews about electricity usage before we left was worried we would have to pay but with 3 kids and 3 adults in one of the coldest weeks in March using the heater and dryer we never ran out once. Stayed here for 9 nights perfect location with walking distance to Waterloo station giving access to anywhere in London. Close walking distance to major attractions such as London Eye and Big Ben. Plenty of places to eat in close proximity and grocery store across the street. Definitely stay here again and recommend
Spacious and light with all the comfort of home
Really enjoyed staying here with my family and would return again. The location was excellent and the apartment was plenty large enough and well appointed.
Lovely home! Great Location!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here as we were in town for business nearby.
There are plenty of shops below the flat which make it very convenient to grab a bite to eat or a drink.
Just a minute's walk from the nearest tube station and plenty of cabs passing by at all times made it easy to get around!
My only advise to the renting agent is to state honestly that there is no wifi provided by the flat itself and rather that we must go downstairs to the cafe directly below to ask for the internet passcode. This was a problem as we arrived after the cafe had closed and the code provided by the rental agency booklet in the flat was not the current password. As we were there for work this could have been a very bad situation but fortunately the shop down below was still open and we were able to pay for wireless (the connection from the shop in our flat was very weak but at least we were able to get some work done, albeit slowly!)
p.s. view of the Eye of London from the patio was a plus!
Comfortable, spacious and close to Underground
We (3 adults and a 16 year old) spent 8 nights in October 2012 in this property and can recommend this to anybody who wants to have a more comfortable accommodation than a hotel room.
The house has 3 bedrooms, of which 2 are on the third floor and 1 is on the fourth floor. This sounds like a high-rise building, but it is actually a very narrow house.
Entering from the street into a hallway which leads to the main door, you will find a bathroom (tub/shower, 2 wash basins, washer/dryer) first, before continuing another stair to living room/kitchen (induction oven, dishwasher,fridge, enough cutlery, plates, glasses, pots etc). The living room has a sofa, dinner table, 6 chairs, a flatscreen TV.
Upstairs from this, there are 2 b`rooms with 1 bed each (ok for 2 people each). On the top floor there's another bedroom and bathroom (shower/washbasin - no tub).
Windows can be opened in every room. There are plenty sockets in every room, hair dryers in both bathrooms.
There is no stuff from people living there permanently, it's a perfect place for 4-6 people for a vacation.
Wi-Fi is however not part of the flat, but one may use the Wi-Fi of the downstairs deli (go and ask for password in exchange for a breakfast :)). Electricity was an unusual procedure for us and horrendously expensive. We spent GBP 38 fÃ¼r 8 nights, although we never had the heating on and were gone most of the day. You have to take a "key" to a nearby store to top up the amount.
The apartment is surrounded by small restaurants (Chinese, Italian, Indian), several small super markets which are open until late and two train stations (Waterloo Station for real trains and Underground and many busses) and Southwark on Jubilee Line. Both stations are 2 min walk away. Heathrow can be reached within 70 mins with 1 change of trains for less than GBP 6.
We would recommend this place to anybody visiting London for several days. However the smell from the downstairs deli was not so nice and the stairs are steep.
Great location, very nice apartment
A great location and a very nice apartment, supermarket just crossing the street, cafes, good restaurants, tube stations only a couple of blocks away.
Also very good reception from Jennifer and very punctual, she explained everything we needed or wanted to know.
I really recommend this apartment and the property manager.
