  • This was the best Apt we stayed in our entire trip. I will stay here again on my next trip to London. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION... It was a great location, super clean, and the pictures are exactly what you get...The bed was comfortable and the location is so convenient. The check in/ check out was easy, I cant say enough about this apt. We traveled with 3 people myself, my wife and daughter. There was plenty of room. for us all and Keiran provided the extra touches that many host do not.

  • We are four Australian girls who had never been to London before & found this Historical Theatre Land Apartment to be absolutely perfect for us. The apartment had everything we needed for our 5 night stay and the location was excellent, being close to the Tube station, the theatres & many iconic London sights. Jamilah met us at our apartment on time & due to a misunderstanding on our part she very graciously waited 30 minutes for us. She made us feel at home immediately & was the perfect host. I could highly recommend this apartment & überlondon apartments for a very pleasant stay in London.

  • Excellent position near Covent Garden tube station and many useful bus routes, close to lots of sights and eating options. The apartment is light, airy and clean. Situated on a busy corner, it benefits from windows on two sides so it is great to have light and, if you're lucky, sun streaming in plus gives a perfect spot to watch London go by from a good vantage point.
    It is comfortable and has most services for a comfortable stay. The bathroom is tiny and cramped but the water was hot. It did lack a few simple conveniences like mirrors and, as it is on the first floor, you do have to cope with pulling upstairs.
    Overall, very good.

  • I've rented flats via Keiran before so I was not surprised at all at the quality of this one. It's a fabulous location, right next to Covent Garden. The weather was very cold when I visited this time so I was extra thankful for the fact that this flat had a very good central heating system. The flat is exactly as it appears in the listing - bright and airy, with comfortable furniture and a fully outfitted kitchen. As always, it was easy to communicate with Keiran and he was very flexible when it came to planning my arrival and departure times. It's worth mentioning that the bed was vey comfortable and the internet connection very fast. The latter was very important to me as I need a stable internet connection for my work. All in all it was a great flat and I had a great stat. I'll certainly rent via Keiran again in future.

  • We had a fantanstic time in this apartment ! Great location in Covent Garden, and so close to Oxford St, Soho, St Pancras with the Eurostar train station, and very easy from this location to go everywhere with the tube... The apartment was super clean and very pleasant, with all mod cons... I will recommand this place to all my French friends, and I think I will come back very soon ! Thanks so much to Keiran.
