  • This listing is one of several London apartments run by a company called Uber London Apartments. When you book, you will receive an automated reply from this company. You will not necessarily receive a personalised email and I did not hear from Keiran as apparently he was on holidays. You will then be asked to make contact with them through their company email address to confirm the booking. I didn't receive a reply from the 2 emails I sent, however I think they were very busy due Keiran being away. Having said that, I did receive 2 phone calls from a Jamilah on the day of our arrival and she was quite lovely. We were then met at the apartment by the maintenance guy who gave us a quick tour and run down of the apartment features.

    First of all, this apartment is in the Porchester Square area and is about a 10 min walk from Hyde Park. It is convenient to the Underground, buses, restaurants and a supermarket. Despite the great location though, it is right above a busy intersection and thus VERY noisy, particularly when you're trying to sleep at night. Also the second bed is a roll away bed in the living area. It sleeps 1 comfortably but would be very tight for 2 people. The living area also only has light see through curtains. There is an orange street light right outside the window, so trying to sleep on the second bed is like trying to sleep in the middle of the day. Having said that, the main bed is much roomier and more comfortable and has decent curtains. Also, you can only check in between 4 and 8 pm on the day of arrival. If you want to arrive earlier, the apartment is usually not available and arrivals after 8 pm will incur a £50 extra fee. This is not made clear until you've booked. So this place was clean and has a great location. However if you're a light or even medium sleeper, I'd think again.

    With that said, I think if you have a problem during your stay, Jamilah is available on the phone and what she can to solve your concerns.

  • Great location! The flat was clean and laid out nicely. The street is busy but has several markets and good restaurants nearby. It was a bit loud due to street noise at night (we suggest ear plugs). The flat was a little tight for 2 adults with 2 kids. We appreciated that they allowed us to check in early!

  • The apartment was accurate to the pictures, a nice design, comfortable, clean and tidy - a nice little city pad with the added extra of a decent size terrace. The location is good, convenient to restaurants, grocers, and buses/tubes.
    Check in was easy and Jamilah was very pleasant and friendly, I would definitely book again.

    Thank you for a lovely stay....

    Response from Jamilah:

    Thank you Billee. The feedback from Jamilah was that you a were a pleasure to host and welcome to book with us any time in the future!

    I wish you well.

  • The apartment is nice, clean and comfortable. The location is very central and convenient, minutes away from convenient stores and tube stations, walking distance from several London "hot spots". The only downfall would be the constant noise from the busy street corner right below. Our host (Charles Coker) was very nice and accommodating. So, unless you are a light sleeper, I would definitely recommend this place...

  • The apartment is in an excellent location and well-maintained. Charles was extremely helpful and accommodating.

  • We enjoyed our stay pretty much. The flat is great and very well located.
    Keiran's team is very helpfull.

  • Keiran was absolutely amazing!!!! He is extremely responsive, extraordinarily helpful and communicative - he left us without a worry in the world while being in London knowing help was just a phone call away. The apartment was great and so much fun to people watch on the balcony!!! I recommend this place whole hardheartedly and will stay there again the next time I am in London - which is hopefully soon! Again, just can say enough about Keiran - but "Thank you" so very much!!!!

    September 2012
  • Keiran was very easy to communicate with throughout the process.

    The apartment was clean and sufficient for 3 people. I think it would have been tight with 4 people.

    The location is about a 10 min walk to 2 different subway stations which get you into central london in about 15 mins. There are restaurants, bars, shops all nearby.

    The best part of the apartment was having the balcony. It was nice to be able to sit outside and watch all the action on the streets.

    Wifi was also very good.

    August 2012
  • Had the time of our lives in London. The apartment was really convenient - close to several metro stations, laundry, restaurants and easy transportation. Great shower and very comfortable bed. Kitchen had everything we needed. Keiran was a great host and made the process easy - we had a very early check in and even an earlier checkout and he was wonderful to make both happen for us! We'll definately be back!

    August 2012
  • Recommended! We (family of four) had a great stay in Keiran's flat thanks to a combination of factors: the flat seems brand new, wifi, TV and kitchen facilities were top notch, the location is convenient and authentic (though not quite as close to Bayswater Road as it appears on the website) and Keiran did a very good job of helping us getting in and out of the place with prompt and helpful answers to all questions.

    One small thing to consider is that the flat is located on the first floor next to a fairly busy intersection. We were not bothered by the street noise but someone trying to get some work done might be.
