Our family spent the week visiting London staying at the Thames View apartment. The apartment is in a great, central location for visiting London - with the Vauxhall underground station right out the door. It is also an easy 20 minute walk down the Thames to London Eye and over the bridge to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Using the underground rail, you can get anywhere in the city with typically one transfer at the Victoria station. We also got around using the above ground buses and Uber.
The apartment itself is comfortable and pretty well equipped, full kitchen and dining area. With a Tesco (grocery store) in the complex, made breakfast fast and affordable before starting each day. There is also a Pret a Manger in the complex for those who need a fancier coffee and pasty fix. The bedrooms are a fair size, and the beds comfortable. The views up and down the Thames are spectacular.
Couple minor issues to note:
While the kitchen has a built in combination washer/dryer, we found the dryer didn't work very well - it didn't adequately dry our clothes. Fortunately there was a drying rack in a closet, and the towel drying rack in the bathroom, so we were able to dry our clothes.
The well stocked kitchen seems to be missing a critical instrument - A bottle opener/cork screw... and I was surprised to find the Tesco didn't have one either... I am sure they can and will quickly remedy this shortage.
