************************************

This is a apartment within a large secure block. There are three sets of lifts and it's on the 2nd floor.

Bedroom 1 – large double bedroom with plenty of space to move about.

Bedroom 2 – small double room with fitted walldrobe.

Kitchen -- fully quipped kitchen with 3 ring electric hobs, a washing machine and family sized fridge/freezer.

Bathroom – standard bath with shower, toilet and wash basin. Simple, bright and clean.

Beddings are provided. Please kindly bring your own bath towels. This is due to the fact that a few of the previous guests were unsatisfactory about home cleaned towels and the quantity supplied. I therefore decided not to provide towels any more, I am simply unable to meet the high expectation of some of the guests. I am also tired of trying to wash out stains such as make-up, baby oil, hair dyes etc from towels. My new towels are often subjected to uses which I am sure people won't do to their own towels.

I have 1 single sofabed and also baby cot with sheets available on request.

I would say this apartment is very well suited to a family of four or five. The location is great and everything is so conveniently located.

Because we live close to the flat (5min walk), so if you experience any problem, we can usually come around and help out pretty quickly. But we have jobs, so can't be on-call 24/7.

I also state that the apartment and the buidling is absolutely NON SMOKING. I expect all guests to respect this rule.

Just a few things I am clarifying from various feedbacks from guests, so guests can be clear about the apartment:
1. This is not a luxury hotel -- it's a comfortable home, but I don't stock piles of professional laundered towels and beddings. If you want professional laundered towels and beddings, I can hire them for you at supplier's cost from hotel linen services, the price quote is anything from 20 pounds to 30 pounds for a set.
2. Water pressure is low -- this is a common issue for flats in Central London area. I have new combi boiler, but the water pressure isn't something I can fix.
3. The building -- there are many other flats in the building. It's not a historic house or new build. It was built in the early 80s, plain looking and basic in communal areas. Please don't expect luxury carpeted corridors and flower decorations. The bonus is that it has lifts, many other flats in the area only have stairs.
4. Noise -- the windows have secondary glazing, but there are still light noises from the street. So if you are from a peaceful countryside, then it may be too noisy for you.

We are easy going hosts and we do our best to help and accommondate your requests. Any questions, please do ask.
