Housetrip rental flat

Hi everyone,

So, if you saw my post earlier in the week, the rental flat I had booked fell through and is no longer available so now I have been scouring the internet for something in a decent location (not past zone 2) with 5 bedrooms for a reasonable rate has been pretty tricky. Looks like a lot of the larger properties are summer only rentals. I did find one that is available and is a reasonable price as far as I can tell but I wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this rental flat or housetrip as well as vet the area through the helpful folks here on the forum. Looks like it is managed by Kielly Norton. Here is the link to the flat:

http://www.housetrip.com/en/rentals/147452

It has the prices in $US when I look at it, but maybe it would be in pounds from a UK browser. I think the cost is around 2500gbp for 5 nights total and is located in the mews off of Bevenden Road near Old Street underground station. I'm not that familiar with this area of London. Is it a decent part of town?

Thanks in advance for the help. I've been pretty stressed out about all this. Thought I had everything all sorted out already!

I don't like House Trip.

I'd book it directly and try to negotiate the price: http://www.fullwoodapartments.com/

Or perhaps through booking.com booking.com/hotel/gb/fullwood-mews.en-gb.html

or HomeAway http://www.homeaway.co.uk/p1016324

Here's a couple of reviews on TripAdvisor: tripadvisor.com/VacationRentalReview-g186338…

When I look at those links, it doesn't show the 5 bedroom flat from housetrip. I'm pretty sure it is in that same mews and managed by that group. I wouldn't mind booking it outside of housetrip. Have you had issues with housetrip or just see a lot of negative feedback about them?

I did see some of the photos have pictures from the 5 bedroom flat from housetrip on the booking.com site. Maybe they combine a 2 and 3 bedroom flat? I emailed Kielly to try and find out more. Thanks for your help, TexScott.

Yes, it appears they combine flats. I can't imagine they have 12 flats there (as booking.com lists).
