We had a great stay at our flat in London. It was a great location convenient to the tube. The property is in excellent condition and was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped including plenty of wine glasses for our Olympic celebration. We had 4 people during our stay and it was very comfortable. There is room however for 1-2 more people. The bedroom was comfortable with a large closet. The included wi-fi was excellent and accommodated all users. The washer/dryer was an added bonus.
We were greeted warmly by the owner upon our arrival. He explained everything and gave directions to the tube and suggestions for how best to get to the airport.
The flat is convenient to several pubs and restaurants.
We would definitely recommend this flat to our friends and family and would happily stay here again.
