Check-in was smooth and the location was just right for my week in London, with a friend using the second bedroom. A large kitchen on the second floor with a small table is shared with the dress shop staff during the day and constitutes the third (non private) room of the apartment. This is a third story walkup, not a flat. There is no common sitting room. The area is quiet and has convenient bus and tube nearby. The food coop was a real plus, as was Chelsea river walk. The place is "quirky" as advertised, and could use some locks on the doors, paint and updates, and a general clean-out of bric-a-brac left by other travelers. It did feel like home after a few days.
FLAT whothout a living room (!!!), also no water pressure on the shower
For the rest ok, reachable by bus an train, Really handy if you travel from Gatwick
Friendly and polite people, good! as you share the kitchen and tolilet with the shop and office staff
A very warm welcome , a lovely place to stay, great location, it was unfortunately a record heat in London during our stay which slowed us down, but we really enjoyed our stay,
Nice flat in a great location, peaceful quiet neighborhood. The team was extremely helpful with our needs.
What a lovely apartment in a great neighborhood! Lots of bath -and bed linen and a good description of restaurants nearby. We will definitely recommend this to friends
La estancia ha sido muy agradable , nos han acogido muy bien y nos han explicado donde coger el autobús para el centro y el supermercado. Lo único raro fue descubrir que la cocina se encuentra en el primer piso y se comparte con las trabajadoras, pero aún así no coincidíamos en horarios ya que entraban a las diez y se iban a las (website hidden) estancia ha sido muy confortable y estupenda. El barrio es muy tranquilo y bonito, no tiene metro cerca pero con la combinación de autobuses y metro nos hemos apañado estupendamente y además se disfruta de las vistas de la ciudad desde el autobús.
