Misleading and disappointing

No contact info 4 days before my arrival so I initiated contact. Margo was fast at getting to me and arranging the check in. First off I was given the wrong address, 238 city turned out to be 261..NO WIFI, only one key with a Fob for the 1st floor, even though our room was on the second. Had to have the concierge let us in each time. He told us that the owner was told two years ago to buy the correct Fob, but doesn't care. Blinds in living room were broken and wouldn't close so no privacy as several blind panels lay crumpled on the ground. Dinner plate had huge chip missing, heated floors not working, poor tv signals..otherwise..place was ok. Would not go back.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
  • Disliked: Cleanliness

Apartment/room is pretty brand new and modern. Very Quite and spacious. Full equipped Kitchen. However, the balcony door is broken, stranger (if any) can easily break-in, feel unsafe. Carpet / pillow is very dirty, I can see very clearly the "shoes stamp" on the pillow.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
  • Disliked: Staff & service

Would be good to know you have to collect keys from a different location - with bookings for Guests at different times, this set up is not very suitable. Most apartments have a keysafe code/collection.

Lovely apartment

We had a lovely apartment, very spacious and cosy. The meet and greet guide was very helpful and polite, location was great, and easy to access. As we stayed on the weekend, we found free parking nearby. The only downfall was the WiFi was very poor, the concierge did try to fix it but it was still pretty slow.

Good flat, looses it on the detail

A nice apartment in a very good location although still being developed. Nothing really there unless you like a Kebab or McDonalds. Could e a scene from Judge Dredd. Took an age to get in, guy late,no second key, no key at all initially, have to mess with key to get in, lock needs replacing, fob didnt work, no toilet roll for goodness sake. Wifi didnt work so tethered. Only 2 glasses. No soap, no shampoo, no anything really so be prepared, there is a coop nearby. All the little touches not there taking it from good to mediocre, shame as it could be great if they thought just a little. Building maintenance poor, access doors all stick and drag, felt like a prison in appearance. Inside the flat although very sparse was in good condition and plenty of space, good balcony and equipment appeared good. The complex has a consierge, just as well as the fobs dont work. There really was nothing other than a shop in the area, felt isolated in central London, couldnt find a pub or restaurant other than a Turkish place (which was good). Will use other flats in future so they lost a 4 month contract on detail.
