Flat advice in London

I found some flats for rent and was hoping that London residents might advise me.

One is on Hanson Street for 95GPB/night: http://www.vrbo.com/348830

The other is on Queensborough Terrace for 80GBP/night:

holidaylettings.co.uk/rentals/…89686

Do the rates seem reasonable for what is provided, based on peak rates for July? Which area is closer or more convenient to tourist sites? Are both these in relatively safe areas? Any other insight would be most appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Hi Rick,

Did you end up staying at the one on Hanson Street? We've put a deposit on this place, but the VRBO link doesn't seem to be available anymore, so we're pretty worried. If you stayed there, this would be some assurance that we're not getting scammed!

THANKS for any feedback.

Looking at their profile, RickTanya haven't been active on TA since April last year (in fact this was their last post), you could try sending them a PM, depending on how the have their account set up, they may get an automatic email to there mail account, alerting them to your question.

Thanks! First time using the site in this way, so didn't check on his activity/status. Thanks for the heads up. :)

Also I feel obliged to share that the owner, Michael, just responded to an email (and rather quickly), providing his +44 number for any questions at all. He's been very responsive and forthcoming -- I guess it's just a glitch with the site. All's well with the Hanson Street flat!
