The flat was charming, in the basement of an older residential building, in a busy but quiet neighborhood--restaurants, small grocery, etc. a block or two away. Walking distance (healthy) to several attractions such as Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, London Eye & others. Caretaker met us there and showed us around. Couple of downsides--a very steep stairway (outdoors) to the basement level from the street (no problem unless you have issues with climbing stairs), and a distinctive "basement" odor in the hall and bath, which you get used to after being inside for a few minutes. Nice little enclosed patio. Tea and coffee supplied, along with other non-perishables left by previous guests. All in all a very good deal for the price--I would go there again.
London can be capably managed with a hotel or by staying in the midst of the crush, but why? We were so pleased to be located within an easy walk of both a few of the top amenities, but also by a main tube station that we plan on using this plan for our next visit.
The flat offered a full kitchen- not every tool if you're a chef, but everything you might need if you are prepping for a day out, stopping in for a refresh or kicking back with wine and cheese after a long day.
The bedrooms are a good size, and the flat has a walkout if you need to check the temperature, air dry some clothes, or get some fresh air. There is a cozy central space for the group with a couch and tv, and the bathroom separates the two bedrooms for some privacy.
The hosts-- Kenneth and Frederic, were both gracious and prompt to respond when we had questions, and that included letting us know what was in the immediate neighborhood for restaurants, groceries/incidentals, wine, and such.
Thanks for the great stay, and we recommend the location!
We were a party of 4 adults and this flat was perfect for us as well as the location. It is situated between 2 underground stations that are just a few minutes walk away. The basement apartment was well equipped and we did not lack anything. There were fresh flowers and bottled water upon our arrival. The check-in and check-out was smooth and we were ready to start exploring the nearby establishments of cafes, restaurants and shops. The bedrooms were nicely sized and there is shelving and a wardrobe to unpack your suitcase, if you'd like. The single bathroom was well lighted and stocked with towels and toilet paper. The full size kitchen was well supplied but we chose to eat out. We did take advantage of the little washing machine and dried our clothes on the racks supplied. We were well pleased with our choice and I highly recommend this flat.
Apartment was really clean....loads of towels which were super soft....apartment was lovely....in a great location, which was fab for us.....highly recommend this apartment. Ken and his team were spot on, very welcoming and made you feel at ease. I would book this accommodation again, without hesitation! THANKS
The apartment was very spacious and very, very well located.
Our host was very kind and explained very well all the facilities and places nearby.
Agree with other comments on great location, good communication, correct pricing. We arrived in London early and Ken was very accommodating in getting us in quite early so we didn't have to store luggage elsewhere. Very thankful for that.
Promise I'm not OCD neat freak but the bathroom here kind of grossed me out, thought I should point them out so maybe they could be corrected. I included photo of bath mat with mold, tile from side of shower, dish rag from kitchen which looks like it should have been thrown out months ago, and inside of electric kettle in kitchen. Ken/owners were very sweet to provide both instant and regular coffee along with kettle and drip coffee maker. The latter was not clean and had a previously used coffee filter with coffee that had never been removed. The electric kettle had "stuff" inside it, looked like maybe someone had used it for boiling something other than water but didn't clean it afterward. I used the microwave to heat water for instant coffee.
These little things are easily corrected and maybe they just didn't have time to clean because we got in early. The cleanliness other than bathroom and kitchen items mentioned was fine. Beds were comfortable for us.
I'd probably stay there again for the location, price, good communication.
Pimlico is a wonderful area. Accessible to all sights either by tube, bus or river. Very close to London Victoria train and bus stations. Ken and his team were very attentive and ensured our stay was comfortable and trouble free. Could not recommend more highly.
