A friend of ours booked this apartment on the 1st floor with Owen when we first arrived in London. The apartment had 2 rooms with sofa beds in the living room, it could accommodate all 6 of us comfortably. 1 ensuite bathroom in the master bed room and another shared bathroom within the apartment.
Basically what you see is what you get, with an equipped kitchen, comes with coffee, tea, pasta, washing powder if you'd like to do some laundry, clean towels, shower gel, basic amenities.
It's less than 5mins walk from the Waterloo Underground Station, there are restaurants and convenient stores around this area (Tesco Express 3min walk away, IceLand - 1min walk away)
We left London to another place for a week but was unfortunately affected by the recent British Airways flight cancellation when we arrived London the 2nd time for a transit to Zurich. We came back to Owen's apartment (this time on the 3rd floor) and luckily it was available.
We were happy with our experience staying here in 2 different units and would highly recommend this place for all London visitors. Yes, it is near to London Eye, Big Ben and other tourist attractions. Enjoy~
Flat was very clean and plenty of utensils if required-Was a nice touch to have tea,coffee and milk on arrival .We were 10/15 minute walk to OXO on south bank and found it nice to be on a street that had a lovely mix of shops for all tastes.Nice friendly pub that had lovely home made bar snacks "The White Hart" 8 min away.Would stay here again but would recommend the owner gets a couple of fans as it was very warm at night in the bedrooms (It was 26 degrees C for 2 days so can't complain!)
The location is perfect; just a couple of blocks to the Waterloo station, and from there we were able to get everywhere we wanted within a few minutes. It's up two flights of stairs (no lift). There was plenty of space, and a nice kitchen, which we really didn't make use of. There are several good breakfast options within a few blocks. There are two double beds, both comfortable. There is also a sofa bed in the living room, but we didn't use it. The living room gets a lot of street noise at night, especially on weekend nights, so I would keep that in mind if you are planning to use the sofa bed to sleep. The noise did not affect the two bedrooms. There are also two showers, and both had good water pressure and temperature.
Wifi worked fine. My only complaint would be that the cleaning could be a little better.
Overall, we had a great time!
Unit is located close to major icons of london. Tube station is only short walk. Convenience stores resturants bars shops all in same street. Unit is well laid out with all modern conveniences. Owen was there to greet and was very helpful. We felt that the beds could be updated as they are showing signs of age. Bit of noise from upstairs apartment otherwise excellent
If anyone is looking for a place to stay, whilst in London, I would recommend this unit that we stayed at.
It is a 2 bedroom unit, so was suitable for two couples.
The position of the unit was great and we were easily able to walk to most places that we wanted to visit. It was easy access to the London Eye and the piers.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well equipped.
The bedrooms and the ensuite were small, but for a short stay, we had no complaints.
