Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived Eurostar after our trip of Paris and found this lovely apartment a wonderful choice even the tea and biscuits was a site for tired eyes, many many sites right on our doorstep was amazing. With this in mind we were able to very easily and safely walk most places and the underground station is also next door to the apartment for further afield. We felt like neighbours to the queen and the prime minister.

Our stay exceeded our high expectations. We will return and will recommend the apt to our friends

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at an apt in Europe and we were a bit nervous about doing so. However everything went smoothly. The apartment was very nice and the location was superb. The staff was helpful and responsive to our every need. We could not have asked for a better experience and hopefully will return again to stay at this apt in the near future. The apartment was convenient to everything a tourist could need or ask for; tube, bus lines, wide variety of eating choices all within easy walking. Plus have St James so close for a morning stroll could not be beat. Loved our stay!

Excellent location, cozy property

  • 5 of 5

The flat was perfectly located — just a few minutes’ walk to so many great locations, and very convenient Tube access as well. It’s a bit of a busy street during weekdays, as the Ministry of Justice is just across the street, so be prepared for a decent amount of noise Monday-Friday.

The apartment itself is small but more than enough room for 2 people, washer/dryer was a big plus. I would have liked to see a few more amenities - perhaps an iron and some laundry detergent, but these are minor quibbles.

This is an absolutely BRILLIANT property

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing get away! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the amenities of this amazing property. You can't beat the location...walking distance from many, many sites and tour officices. The underground station is just steps away and if needed, a Starbucks is directly across the street and we easily had Uber rides pick us up and drop us off here. Marc was very attentive, punctual and a dream to work with. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. We will stay here again next time we are visiting this beautiful city! Much appreciation, Marc!

Unbeatable location for exploring London

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment in Westminster truly is a short walk to St. James Park, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and Victoria Station. The London Underground entrance to St James Park Station is right next door the entrance to the building. The apartment was sufficient for our family of four. It was clean and well maintained. Marc was amazing in providing information and answering questions prior to our arrival, and there were several brand new guide books and other useful tourist provided at the apartment. We will definitely plan to stay here again on our next trip to London

Lovely Apartment / Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two children (8 and 10 years) and I stayed at the property for 8 days. It was fabulous!! We loved having a place of our own, within walking distance to wonderful sites (5 minutes to Westminster Abbey and Parliament, for example). Located right by the underground (i.e. tube/metro) with a Starbucks across the street.

The apartment is very comfortable - perfect for 4 occupants. It is well maintained/in wonderful condition with a very nice kitchen and bathroom. We appreciated having a kitchen so we didn't have to eat out all the time as well as a washer/dryer, so we could travel with fewer bags. The building is quiet (a little noisy outside in the evenings - not surprising, as it is in the heart of London) and in good shape.

Marc was incredibly responsive. He timely sent us information prior to our stay and was really helpful as we had questions about places to eat, buy groceries and getting to and from the airport.

I would absolutely recommend this location. It really contributed to our wonderful trip to London!
