I would appreciate advice on the following apartment we are considering for our 10 day stay in London. I seem to have left it too late - a lot of the properties which seem to be nice are already taken - Wimbledon week and summer rush I guess.
Is it standard to pay a damage deposit equal to half the week's rent? (refundable in 4 weeks from check-out).
Other advice regarding suitable apartments would be greatly appreciated. I have browsed through a place like home, one fine stay, London perfect and a few others from TexScott's list.
We (3 persons) would really like to stay in the Chelsea area (5-7 min from Sloane Square tube station) or in the South Kensington area (again 5-7 min from South Kensington or Gloucester tube stations).
WiFi essential (I think most rentals offer this anyway) & do not mind some stairs/lack of lift.
All comments, suggestions and advice greatly appreciated!
